I've never gotten around a table to partake in a roleplaying session. While I knew about D&D, it didn't really grab me and I didn't think anyone I knew played it. I've recently become intrigued by the hobby and there are a few games that have caught my eye.
I said that the game didn't grab me before and that I didn't think anyone played. As it turns out, people I knew did play, it just never came up. I've been watching a couple of campaigns online and they really got me interested in the game. It looks like a blast and it was only after I became interested in this game that the other games caught my attention.
As a huge ghostbusters fan, I'm, of course, interested in playing this game. It's a bit older, and a bit on the expensive side, but it's a must have. From what I hear, it's very well put together so it might even be worth the money.
If they wanted to release a new edition of the game, or if some other company wanted to take a crack at it, that would be awesome, I'm just saying.
Between the big two, I'm more of a DC guy, so it's no surprise that this outranks the Marvel RPG.
To my understanding, there are two versions floating around. A series was released a few years back and DC released another handbook with new ones to come. I'm not sure if they are related, if it's a second edition, or if they are completely independent, but I wouldn't mind giving both versions a try to see how they play.
Unlike DCUO, this allows the players to play as their favorite characters and go up against some of the major villains from the DC Universe.
This is something of an "indy" title. To my knowledge, the book is not sold in stores and is only available through the eponymous website. The long and short of it is that it's an RPG centered around the zombie apocalypse. You and your friends have to survive the horde as the world unravels around you. It's a perfect way to perfect your zombie plan and it seems like a fun game to play in general. Unlike other RPG's, everything you need is in one book, making it much easier for newbies like me to jump into the fray.
I'm not a big Marvel reader, though I do dabble in the line, picking up a few titles here and there. Even so, I would still like to try this game out. Marvel has a pretty solid cast of characters and you could come up with some entertaining adventures with the source material.
This list was fairly easy to make as these are really the only RPG's I'm interested in. I've seen others for things like "Supernatural", "Smallville", and "Game of Thrones"; but in the case of the latter, I haven't read the books and as far as the two former franchises go, they didn't really scream must buy to me.
