7. Star Wars RPG, 1988
I remember when this game first came out, it was a roleplaying game...set in the Star Wars universe. "What? Are you kidding me?", I thought. That was so awesome at the time, and West End Games had an instant hit, I was blown away.
It's really funny, in high school I got in with a group that was playing Star Wars, this would also be the first time I went somewhere else to game other than home (or the neighborhood). Not being old enough to drive however my folks had to drive me there. The house they drove me to is in the neighborhood I currently live in, in fact it's just one street over. It's kind of neat to think about. Anyway, WEG Star Wars was great fun, it was a great license and with the sourcebooks I got to learn so much more about my favorite franchise (at the time) to boot.
