I've been playing tabletop RPGs since the early '80s, mostly as a GM. Currently I'm running a Twilight: 2013 campaign and playing in a Star Wars: Edge of the Empire campaign.

comment What system would best capture the style and feel of TMNT mechanically?
Side note about the TMNT game from Palladium. It came out in 1985, and was one of the first TMNT licensed products, featuring illustrations from Eastman and Laird. It's a great glimpse into that era in gaming. - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles#Merchandise

comment What RPG systems are Designed for a “Traditional” Call of Cthulhu Scenario
This does seem like a request for a list of Cthulhu-related RPGs, without any actual recommendations. It seems like you're asking for some Googling, rather than specific recommendations based on actual experience.

comment Making magic “magical”
The only time I've ever really felt like the magic my character was using was "magical" came in a Burning Wheel game. My character's attempt to save the day wound up frying the one NPC that could help our party. Everything went horribly awry. It was great.

comment Why do D&D Paladins Have to Be Lawful Good?
Whether DeVarque's widely-accepted assumption that the paladin derived from Three Hearts and Three Lions is accurate or not, it seems to have caught on with the current D&D design crew at WotC. Here's Mike Mearls: "Writers like Poul Anderson (trolls, paladins), Roger Zelazny (planar travel and worlds), and Michael Moorcock (law and chaos as opposed forces) all played big roles."
