RPG-A-DAY 2015 DAY 4: Most Surprised by...Cypberpunk 2020

MOST SURPRISING GAME...

Cyberpunk 2020.  I didn't go in expecting much.  The Gamemaster had, to me, peculiar tastes in games and my buddy and I had gone through character generation with him for several games I never wanted to play.

But Cyberpunk 2020 was different.  Character gen was interesting and the mechanics made sense.  Elegant sense.  And then the game mechanics were a joy.  While I loved Champions, the mechanics were heavy.  And at the time, while I loathed ADnD, it was because the mechanics were bolted on over a decade and a half.

Cyberpunk 2020 was sleek.  It purred to me that it wanted me to play.  It wanted me to enjoy.

Sadly, I played just a handful of sessions.  But I still look at Interlock, the system behind Cyberpunk 2020 with awe.  When Fuzion was born, I really wished it had more of Interlock's DNA than the Hero Systems.
