I also think the days of D&D tabletop simulation games are over. I use the term "tabletop simulation" to avoid the loaded and silly term "hardcore."

People who actually know D&D rules coming into a computer game are getting older. I'm 40 now and grew up with tabletop games and very rudimentary CRPGs that closely emulated tabletop play. The younger market grew up with MMORPGs and action rpgs, and this is the way the business is evolving. I find it extremely unlikely that any large company will ever release a game again where the player is expected to be at least somewhat familiar with the rules of a tabletop game before playing.
