Well, that was fun
I have a fondness for DC Heroes' exponential system, and an appreciation for M&M's sheer weight and support. What does it for you, and why?
Marvel Super Heroes (aka FASERIP.) I've done more with the Hero System and Mutants and Masterminds, but that first system will always have the higher place in my heart.
I love the concept, but hated the game...
Marvel Heroic (Cortex) by miles. It makes it equally fun to play Punisher, Thor, and Jubilee in the same scenario. The streamlining in Cortex Prime makes it even better.
Golden Heroes was my first supers game! Haven't played that in a loooooooong time! I can barely remember it, but I do recall rolling randomly for powers.Anyone try Golden Heroes. You rolled up random powers, then had to design your origin to make sense of how they fit together. If you could not, you loss power. Your action in a round was what you could do in a comic panel. Never played, but rolled up a lot of characters.
A friend showed me the system, and I got half-way through a character, but was not developing an interest. I have never been into superhero comics.Anyone try Golden Heroes.
