My confession: a few months ago, I played a 1e game (actual 1e, not a retroclone) for the first time in like 25 years.
I hated it and was glad that gaming has come such a long way.
Honestly, I think it was more the pregen character that I hated. I was playing a wizard with 1 spell and it wasn't anything like magic missile or shield (I forget what it was). So all I did the whole time was stay in the back and do nothing, waiting for my one opportunity to cast my spell, which I died before I could cast it. I threw out ideas for things to do, no one listened to me since I didn't suggest "kill it with a sword."
But yea, after that, I don't have any interest in playing anything before 3e or a retroclone thereof again. I'm all for playing in settings like Greyhawk updated to modern games, but not the old systems themselves.
