It was sort of a weird 'stumble upon'. The FLGS whom I had been frequenting since my youth (which sadly closed a few years back) had been trying to beef up their RPG night with something more than their core D&D crowd. (Store stocked a fridge with drinks for a reasonable price. Good prices on snacks and there was a pizza joint next door. Just needed more people.) One month, the distributor had a 'good deal' or some such on AEG products. Our group, tired of the D&D and running low on our desire for D6 Star Wars or GURPs III, we were open to trying it. So my group went for a round of the SC1 book at a very nice price and gave it a whirl. From there, we'd add in the supplement books and never looked back. Ever since, it's been my staple RPG. I like the modern setting. I like the Crunch. And SFA just made a perfect twist to get outside of the every day SC setting.
