What have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

I'm running a Cyberpunk in space (is there another _____punk sub-genre for that?) game using The Strange. It's amazingly fun. Well, it is for me, anyway. GMing in the Cypher system is such a blast. I'm also getting ready to run a near-future scifi game, that's not in space, but doesn't have the "punk" aspect (need to go through tvtropes again, I'm slacking on my labeling), using The Strange. Tempted to run a modern supernatural horror game in it too.

Just finished up a campaign using a heavily modified version of D&D4e Gamma World. I have to say, even with the changes I made, and even though Gamma World is the best kind of D&D4e (imho), it's just too "thick" to run very well. Someday I'll have to give Gamma Five a try, but I think this group will be playing IKRPG when we start up again.

Ahh, Iron Kingdoms RPG. I love this game so much. I wantneed someone to run a long-term, story-driven game in this for me. Probably one of my favorite rules systems to play (comes in second for running a game), and one of my favorite published settings (it and WH40k are just too close to call). I really love this damn game, and I wish I wasn't one of the only ones.

I'm playing in a D&D 5e game. It's good. It definitely plays the way I want Dungeons and Dragons to play. I just wish more local people would run campaigns instead of Encounters though. I'm thinking about running an Iron Kingdoms game using 5e. Did I mention I like Iron Kingdoms?

Hopefully I'll be playing some SW:EotE, Microscope RPG, and FAE in the near future. I have a feeling I won't enjoy any of them, but not because of the games themselves. All three are very dependent on the group you are playing with, and it is just so hard to find people like that near here (and finding people online is like trying to find four clean needles in a haystack sized pile of used needles).
