** Easy to Kill is more likely to act as a subversion to this trope; it sounds nasty, but it's really just a simple penalty to a rarely-seen HT roll, and this trait is a major part of an infamous game breaker. [[note]]Raising Health costs 10 points, reducing the speed bonus from this is -5, reducing the energy bonus is -3, reducing the roll to survive death at negative HP is -2; taking all these at once, HT rolls to resist poisons or disease and all skills based on HT go up a level at a net cost of 0 points.[[/note]]
* Some people think that the system is too math heavy, others disagree.'

* GameBreaker: For the most part, ''GURPS'' seems content to leave the game breakers in, but charge ''so many points'' that your character may end up a BunnyEarsLawyer.

* BrokenBase: There are quite a lot of "fans" of ''GURPS'' who buy every book the series produces... except the actual rulebooks for the game itself. The attitude among these people is that while ''GURPS'' has some of the best source, setting, and background material around, the actual rule system (in the word of one reviewer) "stinks from the head like yesterday's cod". They mine the source material for useable stuff, then apply it all to a different rule system (usually ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}'' or ''TabletopGame/{{Champions}}'').

(Some fans prefer GURPS' rule system, and use the settings of other games instead.)
