RuneQuest - Steve Perrin This was one of the many RPGs my friends and I bought but never actually played in the misspent days of our youth (and, to be brutally honest, it was my mother who "bought" them until I was old enough to hold down a job).

I give Runequest a 4-star rating not for its game mechanics (obviously) but for its effort to create a non-medieval, non-Western European world to adventure in that wasn't overly beholden to any other culture but built its own, unique vision.
