    Ahh...Star Frontiers. I had some good times playing that game as well. I had a Dralasite doctor who was addicted to medications. Good times!

    Well, I played a lot of Champions (pre-HERO system), V&V, and a little Marvel. I was always frustrated that I could not build my character the way I wanted, and they never seemed to capture the super-hero feel entirely.

    However, I have to say that Truth & Justice is the best supers games I've ever played. You can actually have Superman, Mark and Wendy, and Spiderman all in the same game without worrying about Superman soaking up the spotlight and taking all the action.

    T&J lets you play a comic book superhero and have it feel like a comic book superhero. You build your powers exactly how they work in the comics. No lie.

    I think it's interesting that Marvel Super Heroes got 8 out of 8 votes and is the only game there to have gotten 100%. That really says something about that game to me.

    Currently, my group is running a World War II Supers campaign using the d20 net PDF Deeds Not Words. This is an excellent resource. There are two supplements for it (Laying the Smack Down, and Bold Costumes, Black Hearts).

    We originally started a d20 supers campaign with the d20 net PDF Power Overwhelming, but quickly abandoned it in favor of Deeds Not Words. We now refer to Power Overwhelming as Power Overbroken .

    If you don't mind d20 and want to try a new supers supplements, then you should check it out.

    MSH was the bomb. At least to me. It was my first experience playing a super heroic game and ultimately allowed me to play what I've always wanted to play since early childhood and play-pretend at nursery school. I would always go back to that game if given the opportunity (and was a few years back).

    Champions/HERO system, it was a little cumbersome and I R teh sux at math. So it never really stuck with me for more than 7 years

    I think that says more about Marvel Super Hero's longevity, availability, and time in print than the game itself.

    The 1st Superheroes game I ever played (and to be honest It's not the genre I'd chose to play) was V&V. In fact the third system I tried, after Bushido (also a FGU game).

    This had the advantage of not using super heroes under licence, which is an advantage if you don't want the "Big Guns" in the scene.

    GODLIKE. (another published system not covered..) A fairly low-powered and gritty game, set during and in the 2WW. For fans of the series "Heroes" I'd reccomend it.

    I quite liked Mutants & Masterminds, but, both editions seemed to be flawed and look a significant amount of time to point/create characters, also seemed fairly easy to abuse points wise. An d20 based game, but with some major rules trimming/alterations from the D&D D20 version.

    BRAVE NEW WORLD. Yet another one.... there are SO many published SH games out there.

    MSH.. popular because it is licenced and does contain the big guns..

    I played the VS. TCG quite heavily for a while. Does that count? I'm actually going to be getting some Mutants and Masterminds stuff in the mail here soon, from another eBay lot. I've heard quite a few people here on the boards raving about it so I'm excited to see what all the buzz is about.

    Heroes and Champions are the same game.

    M&M is fun but the character creation is confusing.

    Confusing in an overly complicated way or confusing like the creation system is wonky?
