These days as a GM I use 1PG Broadsword for cheezy 80s style Sword and Sorcery, Toon for Warner Bros style cartoon setting, Six Gun for my western setting, Cartoon Action Hour for a variety of settings that are all in the style of 80s saturday morning cartoons, Slasher Flick for cheezy 80s horror, and Homebrew FASERIP for Marvel, Star Wars, Call of Cthulhu, Robotech, D&D, and anything else.  I also play Pathfinder and Macabre Tales, but only as a player... not a GM.

I've been running the same campaign every Sunday at 2pm since 1984.

comment In a high fantasy setting, what changes when you restrict player magical item purchases?
Broadsword. It uses an extremely rules-lite system called "1PG".

comment What variant rules can promote a less kick-in-the-door mindset?
Many here are avoiding a rules-based solution to the problem for a reason. If I asked, in a variety of different ways, which kind of new sledgehammers are available for me to fix my wristwatch, I should expect plenty of people to say, "Don't use a sledgehammer" and offer the option of a different tool. You are insisting on a rules-based solution to change your PC's mindset. As it is an RPG, not a board game, rules serve the story, not the other way around. Your plan to "work with the story to combat the mindset" is the correct approach. Adding rules may not be necessary. Just a thought :)
