Fate Core is my favourite game system, having played more than I can recall going back to 1991.
It’s the best system I’ve seen for modeling fiction and it’s the easiest and most fun to play too.
The Fate point economy creates a flow in the game, one friend described Fate as having the potential to mix a great RPG with the feeling of a game of poker.
It's true that it's probably not a system that can handle absolutely anything, but I've played and run most genres I can think of in it and it's always performed incredibly.
The Fate Horror Toolkit is also very worthwhile, it's a great guide for horror in Fate, but it's also a great guide to horror in gaming. I used advice from it to run my favourite horror game ever, in Fate.
Quite simply, Fate deserves every bit of praise it’s had.
Oh and if you like it, consider buying the hard copy book, it's a lovely chunky piece that's a pleasure to read cover to cover.
