What Systems Have You Had Long Term Campaigns With?

Last was a Mongoose 1e Traveller game of 4 1/2 years. Over time, there has been AD&D, Classic Traveller, Twilight 2000, Call of Cthulhu, Rifts; all starting in '79. Right now I am running an M-Space game and another Classic Traveller game, however not playing anything, which makes me sad. :(

Some game systems really don't promote long term games, such as Paranoia.

I am DMing 99% of the time, so bear that in mind.

My longest campaigns were with AD&D2E (multiple settings), Call of Cthulhu, WEG Star Wars and Conan D20.

I also had pretty decent length campaigns using Earthdawn, WFRPG and D&D3E/3.5 (Forgotten Realms).

Year long+ campaigns? I think only AD&D, 3.5, and maybe 4th Ed. I might have taken part in a GURPS campaign for longer than a year, but regardless, it ran for about 4 years before I showed up, and I'm sure it continued on in my absence.

I think that even during my RPG glory days, a "successful" campaign was anything that lasted longer than a semester. Those would have been Call of Cthulhu and Delta Green, Rifts (ugh), 90s era World of Darkness, Gurps, Big Eyes Small Mouth, and I guess maybe Talislanta and TMNT.
