My gaming group and I have an issue. Well, we have many issues, including a guy who liked to make a character, wait and see what the cool powers in the game were that everyone else was using, and then make a new character combining as many of those powers as possible. But today, we're going to focus on a pretty clear one--too damn many space/sci-fi RPGs to play.
Seriously. We come from divergent gaming backgrounds, and I've been privileged enough to know some of the best sci-fi/space gaming writers out there, and so we really, really cannot make up our mind as to what sci-fi or space RPG to play next. As an illustration of this issue, I submit to you our most recent "short list" of candidates (with links, and in no particular order):
StarSIEGE: Event Horizon
Rifts: Phase World
No one knows when this horrible deadlock will end, or what the result will be. But there is the sense that so long as the game allows for some form of Far Trader, all will be well.
Any thoughts on what your choice would be?
