I have but it was so long ago, I hardly remember any of the mechanics.

I've flipped through a few of the books, but never played really.

I used to play The Fantasy Trip RPG which was designed by Steve Jackson and from what I've read was the basis for GURPS. Fond memories of playing The Fantasy Trip were what inspired me to purchase HeroQuest when I first ran across it in Toys "Я" Us.

I knew several people who had used the GURPS system and they hated it. I don't know what the issues were with it though

I played GURPS back in the late 90's, my character was a half Ogre (Grunt, sister of Smash) who was obsessed with battle. She would grieve the death of her opponents that failed to harm her and beg the gods to send her worthy opponents who could send her to the hells to be eaten by her war god. She would go giddy in combat and grow morose if there were no combats during the day.

The system has some flaws, but it an RPG and that is the most important part. All RPGs' have flaws.
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.
