Well, also keep in mind that you can't beat opening systems where the development moves are nearly automatic for the first 12 moves. It was rumoured that Pal Benko used to like his 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 b5 because he was able to quickly rattle off the next 15 some moves without any real need for thought. So what if it takes you some extra moves to equalize as long as the position is solid and you have chances for counterplay.
