While I quite like AD&D both in pen & paper aswell as in computer game form, I always found the combat and magic system to be rather quirky. The whole THAC0 and spell slot system is rather odd. On the pen & paper side systems like Rolemaster/MERP and Runequest do a far better job and a turn based system on that would make a realLy neat base for a great RPG combat wise.
