@Greasygeek And I'm actually on the other side of the argument. Narrative and open part gave me many ideas for new games (especially the cityfight and ambush rules and new ways to set terrain and build armies). For me the matched play section could not even exist but the whole point of GHB is to provide something for all ways to play and I would not like for any of those sections to dissapear. Maybe narrative play is just not for your gaming group?
Oh, and BTW, yes, I'm that kind of player that would regularly buy new sourcebooks. For me more options = more fun.
