I think it would be the entire Beasts and Barbarians by GRAmel. Not so much based on the originality of it all, but for the shear content of it. Between source books, Adventures and supplements include just volumes and volumes of history and background info that is totally phenomenal!

The most played in my life?
That is an interesting one for sure! So far, the RPG I played the most has been GURPS, still! I hosted GURPS games almost exclusively from the very late 80s to the early Y2K era. And I would say almost every weekend if not more.
Even now, after all these years playing other systems, mainly Savage Worlds, and most recently 2D20. GURPS is still the King of the Hill!

I can say that there is not an RPG that I own, that I have not played. But there are RPGs that I have own and have not played for a very long time.
I would think, that the oldest game that I own that I have not played for a very long time would be my beloved GURPS.
I use to run a lot of post apocalyptic themed games with GURPS. Alot with the Chassis and Cross Bows themed games based on SJ Games, Car Wars.
Only reason why I drifted from GURPS was when 4th edition came out, I had no interest in getting all new books. Not that I needed to. But I was running GURPS solid since the 90's and I wanted a change and I felt like that was a good time to step away.
Don't get me wrong, GURPS is a great system!

I have been on a very high 2D20 Conan Kick since the kickstarter was announced. After playing many many hours of it. I have learned that this game has so many intricate details that if you try and changed something, it effects something else. (Balance wise)
The good thing is, with this game I have yet to even consider changing it or adapting it. Its a great system! I love Conan, I love 2d20, and I love DOOM!!!

Of all the great systems out there, there is not one system in my opinion that makes adapting settings easier then Savage Worlds.
Savage Worlds, you can literally convert any setting that is out there. And its unique ability to capture the feeling of the setting really well is also an added bonus!
I adapted several settings for use with Savage Worlds, but my favorite one is BattleStar Galactica
With the Savage Worlds Ruleset, it was a breeze to adapt. I am actually considering revising it again now.
If anyone is interested you can check out the adaption here.!
So Say We All!
PS. I am also have been working on a Mad Max: Fury Road Conversion as well. Thanks to Savage Worlds!

I really think anything Weird Wars related would be a great opened ended campaign. Weird Wars has always had a special place in my gaming heart.
It all started as a kid reading the awesome Weird War Tale Comic Books!
It then went to Weird War GURPS, which was a total riot to run!
Which then morphed into the Savage Worlds Weird War Series..Which are all awesome, Tour of Darkness, ROME, Weird Wars Two, but Weird War One takes the cake... so much info and imagery to pull from!
