Fair enough. I rather like the idea of the goofy catgirl who is orchestrating the whole caper from behind the scenes through the multiple personality processing hardware inside her skull and turns a biodisassembler swarm loose on the party while crushing the cortical stack from the synth in an hydraulic anvil. Or the lolitamorph who enjoys watching people asphyxiate in an airlock while quietly sucking on a lollipop. Or the octomorph pro-domme who takes breathplay a little too far. Or the players starting the game waking up in the thrust nozzles of an intra-orbital craft while the engines are being restarted. Or the neo-avian interrogator who specialises in traumatic amputations. However, you have a perfectly valid point. There is most certainly room for a post-apocalyptic vision of the game world; that is what it was based off of, after all. What I am trying to say is that there is a lot of room for different campaign styles in EP.
I agree fully. Eclipse Phase is less of a setting built around a single genre, and more of a setting that has many genres interspersed throughout locations. Each and every location has a different theme, and that allows for more possible playstyles than if the game were simply "cosmic horror IN SPACE!".

I've never said there isn't...

I agree though, D&D tends to be enjoyable for brainless fun. Same with Paranoia. You can still play a very serious, and very immersive game in either, however (and yeah, I'm even including 4th Edition D&D).
Indeed. Whenever anyone says DnD 4e can't be used for Roleplaying, I just point out the [url=http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=elf%2C+elves]Elf Murderer[/url] threads.
