I expect the GURPS vs. HERO flamewar will never die down, so I tried to make it as quiet a presence on the trope page as possible. On that note, "HERO never needs to add any rules!" is a lot less impressive a qualification when you see how damn big HERO's corebooks are. The systems both have heaping tons of "optional rules," but GURPS will only give you the simple ones ("spend FP to power magic") unless you really want more (GURPS Thaumatology). And even then, the basic set has general guidelines for customization if you just want to houserule it.

Might I ask, why all the bold? Once is enough. (I would change it but there's so much of it that there's probably a good reason for it.)

Seriously? TWO HUNDRED sourcebooks? You're making that up, right?

Nope. Take a look.
