Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition) - I played it a couple of times and thought it really sucked although I've since decided it was probably the GM so I'd like to try it again.

There are probably more, I'll add them later.

Mummy: The Curse - I read the corebook and didn't like it - mostly because I think it doesn't work the way the designers intended it to. I want to give this a try just to validate my original opinion.

Dungeon World - so far I like most AW-Engine games I've played. Maybe this one is finally a game that will bring my love of fantasy games back.

I'll 2nd that for Dungeon World

I'd be interested in giving 13th Age a go. I've enjoyed my pbf of pathfinder but I think that's more the other players and GM than it is the system. 13th age seems more in the direction I'd like, system wise.

Not being immersed enough in the rpg world those are the only ones that come to mind.

The upcoming Firefly game (similiar to but evolved from the Serenity game). Haven't played either, and want to run around the Verse badly.

Mouse Guard - It seems like such a well designed game, but I need to find a group that groks playing mouse characters.

Call of Cthulhu - For the same reason Steve has. Only played once, horrible GM, and it definitely deserves another chance.

Far West Adventure Game - Because that would mean it exists.

King Arthur Pendragon (5th Edition) - Which should happen in the next few months. I had successful runs with 1st and 3rd editions, but I want to try again and really make some progress through The Great Pendragon Campaign.

Something in the Action / Adventure (Swashbuckling / Pirates) genre - I've been real close to getting 7th Sea and Honor + Intrigue on the table, but I keep talking myself out of it. I think the genre would be a good fit for our regular group.

Lots! I have a lot of gaming to look forward to!

Aboard the Death Ship because it sounds like a lot of fun. Who wouldn't want to explore a derelict ship around a gas giant?
Amber Diceless Role-Playing because Amber is wonderfully convoluted, and the backstabbery would be a pleasant change.
Army of Darkness Roleplaying Game because ARMY OF DARKNESS... really, do I have to pull out my boom-stick to make you understand?
Ars Magica (5th Edition) because it sounds like a world I would really enjoy. I love quasi-Medieval fantasy!
Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures because this: "Inspired by the works of Ursula K. LeGuin and Lloyd Alexander." That sold me on it.
Deadlands Noir because: I love Savage Worlds, and my husband loves Noir, so this could potentially be a good mix.
Doctor Who Roleplaying Game because I love the show - all of it. Every incarnation of the Doctor.
Fate 3.0 because of good things I've heard about it, and because it could be potentially easier to build the game worlds I want to play (basically, I'd want to GM this more than be a player.)
Fiasco because sometimes you just want everything to go horribly wrong in the best sort of way.
Hollowpoint because who doesn't want to be the bad-ass anti-hero in a over-the-top action gore-fest?
Horror on the Orient Express because it sounds epic, and I've love to play this, especially with my husband, who loves Cthulhu.
Intrepid because I love storytelling games.
Lady Blackbird because it sounds awesome! And steampunk! Yay!
Lamentations of the Flame Princess because it sounds awesome - and has "Flame Princess" in the title...
Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga Sourcebook and Roleplaying Game because the books are so incredibly awesome.
Macho Women with Guns (1st & 2nd Editions) because of the image on the back of the manual. Not going to lie, it's a great image!
Og (Unearthed Edition) because who doesn't want to fight dinosaurs?
The Palladium Role-Playing Game because I like the old sword-and-sorcery type games and playing this would round-out my collection. Not to mention I do own one Palladium book, and it would be nice to use it.
Part-Time Gods because I once read a short-story with this premise that was amazing - and because I'd love to run a campaign of this.
Private Eye (4th Edition) because I like Sherlock Holmes, as does my husband and many of the members of my current gaming group. So this sounds like a game we would very much like to play.
Starblazer Adventures because "British science fiction space opera" how can you not love that? My current RPG group seems to love all things space opera, so this would be great!
Vast & Starlit because I've heard great things about it and I am intrigued.

Hmm, let's see....

Mouse Guard 'Cause I loved Redwall and this is as close as can be!

Historia Rodentia Got the book, runs on (Mongoose's) Legend. Loads of world info that I just don't have time to read atm so would love to play in someone else's game first.

Doctor Who Roleplaying Game Though I get the feeling it might be ME that runs this for other people lol

13th Age 'cause it sounds cool!

Masks of Nyarlathotep (3rd & 4th edition) This is an RPG *ITEM* as I've played plenty of CoC but want to be in a major event of this game!


I think that's about it for now

The company who own Starblazer have lost/relinquished/decided not to renew their licence of this and so they are holding a MASSIVE sale on DriveThruRPG/RPGNow of it.

I bought:
* Starblazer Adventures
* Legends of Anglerre
* The Legends of Anglerre Companion

all for just £9.04 (overcharged by a penny as they are £3.01 each! lol).

So go grab yourself a bargain!

Hmm. I've actually gotten to try a lot of games. But what would go in this list...

Sagas of the Icelanders: I dearly love the idea of playing a game about year-to-year community and survival, with Viking overtones.
Pendragon: Generation-to-generation knightly adventure with character-driven mechanics? I'm sold! I can't not give this a shot...
Dread: I'm thinking of trying to run this as a Halloween game for some of my friends. I just love the idea of such a tension-focused system with an easy-to-grasp mechanic, and it sounds like a killer execution.
Dogs in the Vineyard: a well-known game with some dynamite subject matter. Keen to give it a shot.

That's just for starters, I think. There's probably a lot of games I'm not thinking of. But those are the big ones.

Burning Empires- I have a bit of a hard time wrapping my head around the structure of play. There is something compelling her that I just can't quite grasp.
Dresden Files- I like the fate system, like the world, love the city and character generation. I am the only one in my group who's read the books.
Dogs in the Vineyard- the setting is interesting and the mechanics are neat. I think this one could have legs with my players.

Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok I have the core rulebook and it's really pretty with a nice theme and interesting sounding system. Now I just want to actually play it.

Fate System Everyone is always talking about Fate but I've never gotten to try it or any games using the system so I'd like to check it out.

L5R 4th Edition Or any edition. I've never been completely obsessed with samurai but I'd still love to give this a shot.

Clockwork & Chivalry The theme just sounds so cool and not like a lot of what you see. I must play it.

God bless,
Kezle

Ashen Stars - I have the book and currently GMing a ToC PbF game to get an idea of the GUMSHOE system.

Fate Core System - Again, have the book and read all the glowing reviews. Think I want to run an Indiana Jones type Adventure.

Hmmm... I really don't know...
There are lots of RPGs I want to play, but none are really on my "bucket list".

Well, I suppose F.A.T.A.L. might be there. Not because I want to play it, but because of it's infamy, I really feel like I ought to experience the horribleness of it at least once if I call myself an RPGer.

Man, I hate that a couple of you fine folks had such bad experiences with Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition). It has long been my favorite RPG! Hope you get a chance to give it another shot!

My list-

Fate Core System Have been reading it and really digging it! Would love to see it in action.


Numenera Again, have read some of it. Would love to see how the GM captures the setting and tone.


Mouse Guard Read some of this and failed to get my brain wrapped around it. Love Mouse Guard and would like to see how this one works.

Fiasco Loving this one! Looks like one my kids would enjoy as well. Would like to play before trying to run, though.

So many ---

Mouse Guard / Burning Wheel / Burning Empires / Torchbearer: Probably this would only work if everyone was intimate with the system.

Something that uses Fate: On paper I really wanna like this.

Eclipse Phase: it's been on my list for a really long time and now someone's running it here! Check.

Apocalypse World: I'm ok with the sex thing/mechanic that others have already mentioned turned them away, but I'm not really sure how that might play out. Depends on the group I guess.

Call of Cthulhu: I've always really admired the Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign/adventure/epic/thing

Doctor Who Roleplaying Game - yes I've played it, but I really want to run a proper campaign.

Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay - I also want to play a lot more games of Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader.

Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition) - I've never GM'd a COC adventure.

The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game - really want to try FATE (so far just run a solo adventure for my 9 year old), love the books, really like the city generation. Someday one of the guys in our group says he will run it. So want to play.

Far West Adventure Game - really like what I've seen in my hardcover and the bonus stuff is really great

I'm really excited about Night Witches, Jason Morningstar's [Designer of Fiasco] new game about soviet airwomen on the East front during WWII.

I recently picked up Our Last Best Hope so that's on my list for sure.

Also psyched to try some LARPS from the Factory.

It's hard to prioritize! There are lots that I'd like to play, but these are the ones at the top of the list

The Burning Wheel Gold - hoping to knock this one off the list very soon

Tenra Bansho Zero - this has some really clever mechanics, but it's a genre with which I am unfamiliar

Sagas of the Icelanders - a very different look at "Vikings" and it looks like it could support some cool long-term stories

Whitehack - a great distillation of D&D, OSR but not shying away from modern mechanical innovations (inside and outside of the D&D tradition)

Archipelago and/or Intrepid - GM-less story-focused fantasy games sound intriguing, but I don't really understand how they work

Project Ninja Panda Taco - silly fun

You might want to check out Hyperborean Mice, a really well-done game of Rodent Sword & Sorcery. Also, though I'm not very familiar with it myself, Woodland Warriors may be worth a look.

Legend of the Five Rings (4th Edition); it's a fantastically rich setting, and I like the difference in culture compared to the standard medieval western style fantasy.

Eclipse Phase (First Edition); it, too, is an awesome setting. I like the fact that the authors did some science homework before writing it.

Reign; I like the One-Roll Engine in general, but I think it's better suited for fantasy than supers, and I'd like to verify that.

Mutant City Blues; who wouldn't want to play a police drama with mutant powers?

And I'm sure I'll think of about three or four more as soon as I hit 'Submit'.

I try very hard to avoid bucket lists. I am not the kind of morbid weirdo who feels it necessary to keep track of how soon he can die with a list. (I'm a different kind of morbid weirdo.)

EDIT: I thought differently about the question. I have added F.A.T.A.L. to my list. (Since I have no plans of ever playing F.A.T.A.L. I may never die!)
