From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grognard:

Quote :
From wargaming, the term moved to role-playing games where it was used to mean someone who preferred older-than-current editions of a game (for example, a person who stayed with first edition Dungeons & Dragons even after the second or third editions were released).

Nowadays, in colloquial usage, it refers to someone who has been involved in a hobby or pastime for a long period, particularly those involved in earlier phases of a now-popular hobby. It is still most often used with reference to wargames or role-playing games. It is primarily used as a pejorative term for gamers who refuse to try newer versions of a game out of nostalgia for older games.

Why 3.5 and not 4.0? Is 4.0 significantly different?
