Not really many aside from pretty much every D&D set known to man. Probably most familiar with the Greyhawk sort. :chinscratch:

I played a little AD&D 2.0, but it was just me and the DM (there were two of them: different campaigns though) so I never really got into it. I've played a lot of the computer versions though.

As much as I love tabletop RPGs, I've rarely had the chance to actually take part in this hobby which is also a point of regret for me. I guess my friends never really got into it and I just never went the length to actually meet people who would have me at playing sessions. Still, I've had some encounters with the genre and I absolutely loved all of them.

In the past I've played:
Forgotten Realms (AD&D 2nd ed, D&D 3rd ed)
Shadowrun
Vampire: The Masquerade
7th Sea

I'm actually planning a playing session with some of my friends right now, and if all goes well All Flesh Must Be Eaten will join the above list soon. :biggrin:

D&D is fun if you're with good friends or fun-loving people. I must confess, I'm not overly fond of the boxed sets because there's little or no latitude for the completely unorthodox player or DM to make life interesting...

Hmm...

D&D 3.0, and 3.5. Not 4.0, but Pathfinder looks pretty nice these days.

My ideal system is GURPS, and it's the one I host the most. I've also played some of the World of Darkness set, mostly vampire ones.

I really like Paranoia but I don't really know anyone else who plays. A friend of mine really loves Shadowrun and keeps trying to get a game going, but there's never enough interest. We've done shadowrun themed GURPS games though.

Ghostwolf used to be into Paranoia, Miz. I'd ask him if he'd be interested in starting a new game.

Started with D&D boxed sets... can't remember what "release" would be. :P
Never played AD&D, nor the subquents versions.

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, first edition.
Haven't played the 2nd edition but it looks pretty good and better than the first version. Looks like they fixed a lot of the issue of the first edition. Only doubt I have about it is that Chaos in the WH universe is so invasive and ever-present... can be boring in the long run, for a campaign.

Stormbringer, first edition again.
Nice, though little more than an hobbyst work as a RPG system. Too much on the hack 'n' slash side for my taste, too.

Cyberpunk 2020.
A jump into sci fi. Well, never loved that theme but this game was a blast. Extremely simple rules, and that was its strength: the game was fast, full of possibilities and incredibly fun to play. Never had so much fun with a PnP RPG as I had with this, both as player and as master. Definitely my all-time favourite.

GURPS.
Fine system, a bit overcomplicated in my opinion, but with a good scenario and a competent master you can have pretty funny campaigns.

HERO system.
Well, maybe it's just that "Marvel superheroes" are not my thing, but I found this one an unnecessarily complicated and lumbering gaming system. In my opinion, PnP RPGs should have a very light rule system, so that the gaming sessions don't get bogged in calculations and browsing through the manuals to find the correct rule to apply to the situation.

Vampire: the Requiem.
Actually, I'm playing it in the Camarilla international live-action gaming system... never played it as PnP.
I think they have improved a lot since Masquerade both in terms of rules system consistency and balance, AND in terms of ideas and hooks for narrative plots.

Too bad I don't have time nor a good group of friends to play a good ole PnP campaign these days... I miss that.
I don't have a dirty mind. I just have a sexy imagination.
