Role-playing Games I’ve played

RPG Geek is currently having a little micro-badge awarding thread based on a rather interesting topic: How many RPGs have you played or run?

In the thirty-odd years I’ve been playing RPGs, I’ve not amassed a list that is extremely long; I’d normally categorize myself as a D&D specialist, although there are certainly periods when I’ve played other RPGs.

The lists I created for the thread were based on some assumptions that may seem odd. A game is listed if it’s in the RPG Geek database. They generally treat different editions as different games if there are major changes between the editions, thus “Call of Cthulhu” has three entries: one for the original edition, one for the second through sixth editions, where the rules were basically the same, and a new entry for the seventh edition. (I’ve now run the seventh edition twice, and it’s a really good version, although one of the adventures wasn’t that great).

These lists are ordered as the games are ranked in the RPG Geek database – mostly. There are a few entries that are out of order. I may also be forgetting a game or two. I’m almost certain I am, actually.

Although the thread has every game you have DMed also counts as one you’ve played, these lists make the distinction between playing and DMing.

There are a number of RPGs that I own and haven’t gotten to play. They aren’t on these lists, although perhaps I should make another list…
