So I grabbed the books and started reading.
+ For around $20 you get all the needed rules to start as a player in Fate or as a game master. Nice on the pocket book!
+ Rules are light and most of the book is taken up trying to help you understand the unique concepts of Aspects and the like
+ You have "templates" that help you game master and play in a setting / scenario of your choice. For pre-made stuff, they have some world books that give you backgrounds, locations, characters, scenarios, etc. (see my pic when I get it uploaded)
+ The hardback is nice production quality and should last a long time even with regular use
NOTE: This is a very story driven type of game. I'm rating this "neutral" as this may not be the preference of some folks.
From my research, easy game to learn and story driven go with Fate
If you want like 100% action and almost no story, but not too much rule overload upgrade from Fate to Savage Worlds
If you want to simulate your favorite movie, with a bazillion options to make it 'realistic" to that movie (e.g. Jurassic Park, 5th Element), then go with GURPS.
Fate and the other examples are not genre specific, like D&D and Pathfinder are strictly fantasy.
So it's all in what you are looking for, as there is a system out there for you.
I got all four books for under $70, which isn't much more than the price of a new video game these days. And I get to have hours of fun with my family and friends roleplaying.
OVERALL: I'd recommend you check this out if you are like me and trying to get back into RPing after a 20+year break or are simply new to roleplaying or your family/friends who are interested in RPing or want a more story telling system that isn't genre specific.
I highly recommend this system to anyone looking to break out of the funk of D&D, Pathfinder, or any d20 system.
Also FATE dice are not required, my group just uses 4d6.
