Favorite video games based on an RPG.
1. Baldur\\\'s Gate 1&2
2. Hunter :the reckoning.

I also vote for Hunter: the Reckoning on best video adaptation of an RPG. And the fact that you haven\\\'t updated your collection of game books explains the absence of Exalted on your review table. For a game that really strikes a balance between in-depth RP and bad-asses with big swords, Exalted is the way to go. And the social combat rules in 2nd ed ought to keep even Phil happy.

Keep up the good show, but ... shop around ... bear in mind that the current crop of game books are being written by 2nd and 3rd generation gamers with a wealth of experience behind them. There is innovation there worth looking at.

Luke and Tex are great additions.
One fix for a Harry Potter RPG, you could simply say that magic has a toxicity that infects the users mind and soul that magically makes them unable to understand or comprehend muggle technology unless that technology was really old. Like Muggles are always 2 progress levels ahead of them.

Re: ENnie awards and abuse-voting

Couldn\'t it be that there are so many people at MicroSoft that all votes through all the IP addresses were by different people? Not necessarily one people voting multiple times.
