That Morrow-Dogs thread got me thinking about older games.
You know what could be really fucking cool with a few updates? Gangbusters.
Anyone out there besides me have this game? It has a lot of cool ideas, especially for a game made in 1983. There's XP rules in there similar to TSOY's keys, and nothing that says there needs to be a "party." Characters can be criminals or police or reporters or whatever, and they can be absolutely against each other.
The resolution system is kinda clunky, but it'd be easy to fix it up a bit. In general, very cool.
And I suppose that Hero Quest is the face-lifted version of RuneQuest.
Any games out there that you'd like to see getting a cool update?
