Everyone… No wait, let me rephrase that, I think that everyone will have experienced this. You buy an RPG, read it, get enthusiastic to play it and then NEVER get to play it.
For me this actually happened with quite a few systems. I bought WoD, nWoD, Werewolf, Vampire, Dark Heresy, All Flesh Will Be Eaten, etc. There just aren’t enough hours in a day to allow my hobbies to fill and hardly enough people with the same interests in my town, at least not enough who confirm to the standard of hygiene I prefer.
But the one game I never got to play and wanted to play the most was Cyberpunk 2020.
I bought the rulebook back when I was 15 and loved it. I borrowed it to my friends and not one of them thought it was interesting enough to play… Not one!
I still have the book somewhere in a box. I must have read it about a hundred times but never got around to playing it. I am sure I am not alone in this.
What games were the ones that „got away” for you?
