I actually know quite a few gamers. four gaming groups even.
Two groups pretty much insist on playing Pathfinder, one has so many GM's I am about fourth in line to run a campaign.
One group only does 4E dnd.
One guy who was not initially interested in playing Dragon Age recently started playing the computer game and....he likes the setting now. Some of them just don't seem to get that using a game tailor made for a setting is generally a good idea.
Why the %$#@# would I want to use Pathfinder to do a Dragon Age setting campaign?

Of course, there are also the "power" gamers who do want to be the ultra-powerful characters who literally roll over every obstacle or avoid the ones that actually require real "role-playing" as opposed to "roll"-playing.

Let me point out one VERY MAIN POINT. even generic systems such as GURPS. That can convert everything into it. This is not duct tape for RPG'S it cant hold up the RPG world. But on a more lighter note the best method that i have learnt from numerous other people is relate to them in a way of pros and cons about what the systems can do and cannot do for the group are playing with. Take the part of the group that wants to be adventureous and play the other system and play with them. Either the other people will come along or will simply go find a game elsewhere. After that try to find people that are more open minded about trying a new system. In time you will get a group together that will be in harmony. Just be patient.

I know a lot of gamers, and they keep insisting we play Pathfinder.
I really do not want to play 'dnd' flavored Dragon Age.
So I ended up doing the Dark Sun setting.
Can't get the players motivated to use a new system.
