    Oh, this could take a while:

    GURPS Transhuman Space
    Traveller (currently GURPS, soon to be republished by Mongoose)
    Metamorphosis Alpha (4th Edition)
    Shock: Social Science Fiction (indie)

    And those are the ones still in print, off the top of my head. If we delve into the past, the list could get longer. Just check out the Wikipedia list.

    Human Occupied Landfill

    Gotta love the HOL. How could you not love a game with skills like:

    Making Sharp Things Go Through Soft Things That Scream and Bleed
    and
    Whining Until You Get What You Want

    Classic bloody humor.

    Yikes!

    I bow before the might of wikipedia.

    This thread has just been rendered moot.

    Dang!

    Ex Machina,
    Gamma World (didn't see that one when I started this post),
    and how could Star Frontiers have been missed for this long?

    Didn't see the Wiki link before I posted.

    Yes, there was Star Fronties, Gamma World, Traveller, and my favorite Alternity, which included Star*Drive, Dark Matter, & Tangents.

    How about Warp War? It is a little game made by Steve Jackson whilst he was still with Metagaming. (May that beast stay dead!)
    Belive it or no, I still have parts of the game, including the 'no dice needed' attack template.
    Anybody else know of a thirty minute game?

    I think the one I own and would most love to actually convince my group to try is Etherscope.

    I've always wanted to play a good steampunk game. I was supposed to be involved in a Castle Falkenstien game but the GM couldn't find enough players interested in that level of role playing (it takes a certain type of player to even want to delve into Falkenstien.)

    Steampunk is an idea I've always loved. However, it is so difficult to simulate or convey it. This is only something I could do as a game within a game, IE Players are jaunted to an alternate reality/past where they are in need of doing X to secure their present. It would allow me to express what little I know of the genre' and still keep the instance short and sweet enough to maintain the suspension of disbelief. Otherwise, my non modern, non fantasy, non sci fi games come to a grinding halt after a few sessions.

    Don't forget worlds beyond.

    It was kinda fun and it was very similar to RuneQuest 3.

    Chaosium is offering Worlds Beyond for sale on its new website. I've been wondering whether I should plunk down $35+ bucks for it. (My current fantasy is running a science-fiction game with Runequest rules ... although I wonder if just converting GURPS Ultra-Tech and Bio-Tech to MRQ might be simpler and more cost-effective.)
