I’m definitely in the lapsed category and I was never a very active player, but I used to collect rule systems and source books.
Middle-Earth Role Playing was one game that I barely actually played at all. But I loved all the source material including an excellent map that speculated on the shape of the rest of Middle-Earth.
Other ones I collected included D&D (the old boxed sets, AD&D seemed, and still seems, needlessly complex to me), RuneQuest, Hawkmoon, Cyberpunk 2020.
White Wolf and they Storyteller Systems came after my time, but I’ve always been curious about a minimalist dice (or even no dice) system.
