...in some old school gaming? AD&D 1st Edition or maybe AD&D 2E (sans all the additional optional rules).
What I mean by Old School is that back when we originally played D&D it was a roleplaying game...we roleplayed everything. There were no rules for non-combat conflicts aside from a very basic +/- modifier for reaction.
While we had dungeon crawls sometimes, that wasn't all there was. We played for years without a need for rules for everything under the sun.

What I'm proposing is playing in a campaign where we explore a setting, get in some sandbox adventuring and just have a good time with it.

Something pulpy and gritty would be nice.

Just want to concur with valleyviolet on having the right GM for this - and add that having the right players is important, too.

Your fellow players will need to be comfortable with the amount of latitude that is given to the GM where no rules mechanics exist. Players used to regarding the GM as an adversary to beat may have difficulty with this.
