#RPGaDAY Day 21: Favourite Licensed RPG

In my collection I have several games that may fit into this category and trying to pick one has been a bit of a nightmare.  For some Star Wars seems to fill this niche, for others it is Serenity.

There is only really one game that I was happy to see licensed and that is that awesome Ghostbusters RPG. A very simple rules light system coupled with some really awesome adventures and you all play Ghostbusters!  The published adventures were a hoot to play and packed full of the atmosphere of the first movie.

I think it’s a real shame that such a gem of a game is long out of print although there is a spiritual successor in the form of InSperctres.  There used to be a homepage for this game but it looks like it has vanished, rpgnow looks like the only place to get the game these days.

About the Author

I've been gaming on and off since about 1989 and during that period have played with numerous game systems. I'm fluent in a few, have a basic understanding of quite a few more and can get by in others. Somewhere along the way I found time to be a playtester, contribute to an unpublished game supplement and be associated with another gaming magazine written by far more talented people than I. This lead to one infamous article being written in which I followed the letter of the adventure and torched the parties river barge. I'm also listed on http://rpggeek.com as a game designer.
