#RPGaDay 2017 - Day 18

August 18th) Which RPG have you played the most in your life?

This one is tough. I can literally break up my RPG playing "career" into three phases. My first games through college were dominated by Palladium more so than any other. While even then I found the rules clunky in spots I loved the settings and the sort of "pick and play" aspects. After college I had no local group and no luck in finding one. Thankfully I found online play via play-by-post forums. I played a great deal of White Wolf games during those years from Aberrant and Trinity and Adventure! to the new World of Darkness titles and Scion. With time the community at the site I played on began to dissolve and I stepped away as I reformed a local group and found my way into online play via Hangouts and other video calling means. Mostly I have played Cypher System and Dungeon Crawl Classics in this medium, though I did try many an indie game or story game early on. Overall though I suspect that the Palladium games still have an edge in terms of hours of game play. Being that I started in middle school I obviously had a great deal more free time to play than I do now as an adult.
