March Madness OSR Challenge Days 20 through 25

Which setting have you enjoyed most? At this point, I'm going to say 13th Age's setting.
Why?  It really tackles fantasy from a fresh perspective and things line up unexpectedly but are deeply rooted in classic DnD lore.

What is the narrowest genre RPG you have ever played? Any of the World of Darkness games. 
How was it?  I didn't like it, you could see in each of those early White Wolf products that DnD's niches were simply filled with a bloodline or tribe or whatever and then crammed into a monster.

What is the most gonzo kitchen sink RPG you ever played? World of Synnabar.
How was it?  It's fun, but a terrible set of rules.

What is the most broken game that you tried and were unable to play? Rifts.

What is the most broken game that you tried and loved to play, warts and all?  Rifts.

Which game has the sleekest, most modern engine?  Dragon Age, I really, think it has laid the groundwork for many of the RPG designs we are currently seeing.
