One reason I like to stick with my Majestic Fantasy RPG system. However what D&D 5e inflated totals does is allow the 5e system to expand the number of options for character to deal damage in a way that didn't work as well in 3E. While I don't like fussing around with 20 levels worth character options, I also don't find it hard to port my material back and forth because the power curves in my experience are similar.My main issue with it, if I feel like kvetching anyway, is the scale of the HP in 5E. When characters range from 1 to 120+ it's kinda hard to get granular with. I find some OSR treatments a little easier because the PCs generally have far fewer hit points. Something about the smaller totals and more compact range makes it easier to forge a narrative around.
Keeping in mind that both editions including my take have ways of thoroughly breaking it.
