It's not just that it's simpler to learn (which it is)--it's also a quicker set-up and battles seem to move faster. It doesn't bug me that much either way as an adult--I could play either way. In terms of keeping young kids in the game longer, 3.5 seems to be a little easier to use. I don't know if that's a selling point though--"So easy a 6 year old can use it!!"

And as long as we have fun role-playing and telling the story, that's the important thing for us.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
