This is the subject of many threads already, so it should be merged.

But...

1) I'm sure table top D&D sessions could be run like the floor of the stock market, with everyone clamoring and trying to do everything at the same time, but that doesn't mean it would be good thing. In other words, I don't think table top is unable to do it.

2) If it is something table top cannot do, how does that necessarily make it better?

3) Is it your opinion that they were not trying to recreate a table top experience, or is there a source somewhere that quotes the developers of the game saying as much? Or, alternatively, might they have been trying to capture the table top experience and just thought the better way of doing so (mistakenly or not) was with RTwP?
