20. What are the best sources for out-of-print RPGs?

"Best" is beyond my capability to ascertain. My favorite local shops that bought and sold out-of-print games have ceased to exist, which leaves non-local shops and the Internet as my only sources now.

19. Which RPG features the best writing?

Even if I were to rephrase this question more reasonably, it would still be impossible to answer. If you ask me to name my favorite movie, I'll produce a list of over 300 titles. If you ask me to name the movie that features the "best" writing, I'll just shake my head and sigh.

Instead, I'll list the first three role-playing games with entertaining writing that spring to mind:

Risus
Tunnels & Trolls (5th edition)
Paranoia

18. Which RPG have you played the most in your life?

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1st edition) tempered by Basic/Expert D&D.

2017: Missed GaryCon, missed Origins, missed all of the live DCI events, am missing both GenCon and the Columbus Food Truck Festival right now. I need a job with better pay.

On the bright side, at least I made it to the DEVO 5k run.

17. Which RPG have you owned the longest but not played?

Probably Gamma World 2nd edition. It is one of my regrets that my original gaming group never found the time to fit it into our busy role-playing schedule. Someday, I will make up for it.

15. Which RPG do you enjoy adapting the most?

I'm not sure what this question means, but I will assume it means, "Which RPG do you most enjoy using for the adaptation of various settings and genres?"

My answer, depending on the specifics of the source material to be adapted, would be one of the following (in no particular order):

Fudge
Risus
Sherpa
Prince Valiant
MiniSix/D6
Swords & Wizardry White Box
Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG
Basic Role-Playing
