Okay, let's vote on our favorite RPGs. Most of us have not played all of these, but you can still vote based on genre, mechanics, description in the database, etc., or even whichever one looks the coolest. The criteria for "best RPG" is totally up to you, but make sure your vote gets heard on all of these!
Color commentary, reasons for voting one way or the other, and good-natured smack talk are strongly encouraged in the comments beneath the GeekList items.
Good luck to all the RPGs competing in the Seet Sixteen, and may the best RPG win!
