Though I bought the original Vampire when it was first released, I never got a chance to play it. So I missed out on the whole original World of Darkness line. Recently I needed to put together a street-level superhero game with a strong supernatural element. The Dresden Files was off the table for reasons I won't elaborate here, so I decided to give the World of Darkness a shot.
And I was pleasantly surprised at the results. It is a smooth, easy to grasp system that I was able to tweak to meet my needs. The Morality mechanic provided just the right spice I was looking for. My campaign was not quite the sort of thing the rules set is intended for, but it still did the job admirably. This is a hugely popular system with a multitude of available settings. After running it I now have a better understanding of its popularity.
