I like d4 because it gives me more options -- a more flexible feel to it. And I promise you this -- d4 can be just as sharp and tactical as e4 if you chose to play it that way.
I'm interested! What are some tactical openings in d4? (for both sides)
Semi Slav Botvinnik Variation is very tactical and theoretical,the opening moves reach until the endgame.
I like e4 more because it opens up a diagonal for the queen and the bishop, and I think that works better because it gives an opening for two long range pieces, whereas d4 doesn't allow the queen to move much.
acually I perfer d4 over e4.i like dynamic games and the queen acually can be very powerful.the dark square bishop comes outwhich helps alot in d4 openings and many gambits,games can be very tactical and positional.flexibility is easy as well
only 2 e4 openings catch my eye and are interesting to me
the Vienna Game and the Ruy Lopez
