Pen and Paper RPGs that should be on PC @ FiringSquad

An interesting article at FiringSquad titled <a href="http://www.firingsquad.com/features/pen_paper_rpg/" target="_blank">Pen and Paper RPGs that should be on PC</a> looks at several PnP RPGs and the idea of a PC cRPG. Among the games briefly covered are Paranoia, Delta Green and Deadlands:<blockquote><em>Deadlands: This well known RPG series was created in the mid-1980a "!s by Shane Hensley (who currently works for City of Heroes developer Cryptic Studios) as an true alternative to the many fantasy RPGs out on the market. Set in an alternate 19th century American West where creatures and monsters roamed the range alongside cowboys and Indians, this title has a ton of potential to be turned into a great video and/or PC game.<br><br>Indeed, UK game developed Headfirst acquired the rights to make such a Deadlands game and had completed a three level demo to show to publishers before the developer went out of business shortly after the release of their 2005 Xbox-PC game Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the Earth. In a phone conversation with FiringSquad for this article, Hensley told us that he was very impressed with the demo that Headfirst had created and was disappointed that their Deadlands game would never be completed. Hensley told us that he is currently shopping around the Deadlands video/PC game license to a number of interested parties but there is no word on when such a deal will be announced.</em></blockquote>
