World of Darkness RPG
Reading many blog posts about WoD has piqued my curiosity. I really want to play a Created, or more specifically a Wretched, from Promethean: the Created source book.
Rolemaster: The Standard System RPG
One of my favorite fantasy RPGs of all time. I like the system. Yes, character generation can be glacial, but once that's done; I find everything else about the system to be fairly smooth going. Unless of course the gamemaster doesn't know what they are doing; then you might as well be playing Uno.
Champions/Hero System RPG
Champions is another favorite of mine, and I've played in, and ran a few campaigns. I mean what's more fun than picking up a car and smashing it on a supervillain? One thing that bugged me was that my players always made the stupidest superheros. Roachman was a giant humanoid cockroach, with super strength. Quiche Lorraine, was a speedster cook, who threw explosive quiches. I could go on, but now my brain hurts. These players really ruined the genre for me for a while...
A Weird West RPG/Skirmish Miniature Game ( System ? )
I used to read Heavy Metal Magazine, and one of the regular series I really enjoyed was Tex Arcana, which was quite a weird west. I'm not sure which system I would want to play in... More research needed...
All Things Zombie Skirmish Miniature Game
Cosmic Encounters: the "Board Game"
"I'm a giant alien Brain!"
I never owned a copy of this game, but a friend did, and we played this game so much the box wore out, and he had to keep all the components in a cookie tin. ( He had almost all of the expansions. ) This is one game that I never grew tired of playing. There is an online version that I've played a few times, but unless you subscribe to the game the options as to what alien you play are limited. A company has recently rereleased CE, and I really want a copy.
Traveller was one of the first games I ran as a GM. I also played in a couple of campaigns. It was fun, and being a more "mature" gamer I would like to play again; even if it's only a play by post campaign.
Gamma World RPG ( Both the old and the new... )
"I'm a giant mutant braaaaaaaaiiiiin!" That's also got tentacles, and is clutching a Popeye Gumball Machine. "Thanks for the gumball Popeye... thanks for the gumball!"
Call of Cthulu RPG
"It's a giant braaaaaaaaaaaiiiiin! RUN!!! It's got tentacles! Aaaaaiiiiieeeeee!" Actually I may have played once or twice, but the passing of so much time and maybe the loss of a few sanity points makes my episodic memory so unreliable...
Necromunda: Skirmish Miniature Game
This is one of two Games Workshops games I have played. I also ran a Necromunda league at a comic book and game store. Man, that was a pain in the arse. I actually had my entire gang painted, and built quite a bit of terrain for the game. Funny thing is, well not so funny at the time, is that I LOST every game I played. My gang list wasn't so good I guess. Eventually, I sold it all on eBay, and made a little profit.
I guess BattleTech is a skirmish level minaiture game? Dunno, but I played it a few times. I believe my brother owned it, and we always just used the cardboard stand ups. As I remember there was quite a bit of stuff to keep track off, like heat, etc... Sheeesh, maybe I don't really want to play this again. On a side note there used to be a place in Dallas where you could sit in a "cock pit" and pilot a mech, and play against other people. "Death from above!" Tons of fun.
Superhero Genre Skirmish Miniature Game ( System ? )
Yeah, something fun, rules lite, but still with all the car smashing, krash kapowing, and zoooooming, that's so vital to the superhero genre.
I could go on... Car Wars, Ogre, GURPS, Magic the Gathering CCG ( Hey, I figured I better put on CCG in the list. ), Mage Knight, etc. I don't know why, but I'm not too keen on D&D, AD&D, or any of the retroclones right now. Maybe, I've just been reading too many blogs about them.
Also, I know I'm not interested in any of the MMORPGs. I used to play Ultima Online, and a little City of Villains. I have never played WoW.
Maybe next time I will list the games I never want to play again. EVER!
On an editorial note, I plan on trying to finish out the year by posting everyday. Hopefully, the computer will cooperate with me. Otherwise, I may invent a new game called, 'SMASH the Tower!' Also, anybody know where I can get a Popeye Gumball Machine???
