Why I Like OSR RPGs

I just wanted to make a short statement on why I like old school RPGs, so here are the (top) three reasons I like them:

  1. Compatibility: Almost any OSR RPG is compatible with/can be converted to every other, this means that you can take Labyrinth Lord module Y and convert it to The Black Hack, or other system Z.
  2. Simplicity: Unlike the d20 system, most OSR games are very rules light and simple, often fitting in a few pages (see Swords and Wizardry Light).
  3. Fans: OSR game often have more rabid fan bases and more DNA created content than other games.
