fdw3773 Posted August 13, 2022 Report Share Posted August 13, 2022 Have you ever played or owned an RPG that received excellent reviews or was really liked by your friends, but you hated? While there were excellent RPGs I've owned that weren't my cup of tea in the past like Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, RuneQuest, or Dragon Age, I never hated them. A few, though, stand out, but not in a good way: FATE Core System - I read a lot of good reviews and I bought some of the digital products to get started as an alternative to Champions and ICONS, but the narrative style of gaming was just too broad and vague for me. It reminded more of me playing soldier or knight in my backyard with my friends in whether or not we hit each other or suffered any damage, or with our action figures on whether the weapons the figure used penetrated the force field, and so on. I ended up hating that rules system, often saying to myself, "Is that IT!?" Palladium Fantasy & Heroes Unlimited (2nd Edition) - I used to play Robotech throughout high school when Palladium had the licensing agreement, and my friends spoke highly of Palladium Fantasy from their game sessions, so I thought it would be a good fit along with Heroes Unlimited as part of the Palladium Megaverse concept. I was mistaken. The skill and magic system proved maddening, and some of the interior art in Heroes Unlimited was just plain awful, along with a lot of gaps in character creation and advancement.
