How do you feel about available RPG systems?

"The system isn't important. It's what you do with it that counts."
62(36.9%)
"I'd like a more realistic system to play, even if it's a little more complicated."
16(9.5%)
"Realism isn't as important to me as simplicity."
27(16.1%)
"I play with house rules/my own system, so I'm not too worried about it."
28(16.7%)
"I like the game system I'm using (d20, GURPS, Hero, WoD, Fudge, etc.) a LOT. I'm completely happy with it."
35(20.8%)
"I don't understand the question. What is an RPG system?"
0(0.0%)

Check all that apply. "I would like games with more..."

"...of a cartoony quality, like popular television cartoons."
0(0.0%)
"...gore, especially horror games. What's a horror game without gore?"
0(0.0%)
"...romance. They focus so much on fighting, but not on relationships."
0(0.0%)
"...hard science. I want things to be based on reality, even in fantasy or sci-fi."
0(0.0%)
"...sex appeal. I wouldn't mind seeing a little skin now and then. That's in real life, after all. Why not in games?"
0(0.0%)
"...or a sense of humor. I'd like to see more comedic RPGs."
1(0.6%)
"...personality. Everything in these games is so generic or so derivative and hackneyed. I want to see more original content."
0(0.0%)
"...focus on characters, like who they are, not just what they can do or what weapons and equipment they have. How do they feel and think about things?"
2(1.2%)
"...power. I want high-powered games with godlike characters."
0(0.0%)
"...beautiful artwork. I want to see the kind of art that just blows me away with how amazing it is. Good art really sparks the imagination."
0(0.0%)
"...original ideas. I see the same concepts, plots, archetypes, etc. over and over. I want something new and different."
2(1.2%)
"...familiar characters. Do you know how long I've waited for an RPG based on...?"
0(0.0%)
"...drama. I want my games to have dramatic storylines that work, and most of the time I'm not feeling it."
1(0.6%)
"...educational value. It doesn't have to be a teacher's aid, but would it hurt for the players to learn something from the game that's actually real history, science, or about a trade or about cultures or the human condition?"
0(0.0%)
"...real religions, magick, and paranormal elements. Why make up so much when there are so many strange things out there that people claim to be real?"
0(0.0%)
