We've already got a lot of fantasy games... and I'd love to offer something in the realm of science fiction. Eclipse Phase is near-future science fiction. Characters are, independent of each other, agents of Firewall, an organization working behind the scenes to prevent the complete destruction of humanity. After five years of terrible war and natural disasters, the Earth lost to the genocidal AI's known as the Titans. But life continues in the rest of the Solar System. Technology allows you to backup/transfer your mind. Bodies can be highly customized with biological and technological implants. Apocalypse World is a game of Mad Max post-apocalyptic mayhem. Rules light and focused on the characters lives. Players heavily influence the setting and story. There's a reason this game gets high marks from those who've played it.
