What is an RPG....?

- you create a character, you choose what its stats,and skills will be like and its name.
- EXP.. You level up as you go along by doing things like killing shit.
- the world plays around your choices.
- freedom to play the character as you see fit.

At least thats what RPG's used to be like. Today people are mistaking action/adventure games as RPG's.





Blue Text is just my rant.


'Yes I love Non-linear games do to the fact the Idea behind a rpg is to put your self in the game, create your character and they play around you and your choices. Thats what they need more of. I don't even consider Final Fantasy real RPG. How I see it its a action game with some RPG background. Other than FF3 and FF tactics. They can be counted as RPGs.
I find it funny people think Zelda is an RPG! How the hell can you call Zelda A RPG its a Action hack and slash thats all. You do not create your character, you do not level up. You gather harts that are used for Hitpts like all Action/adventure games. '


What is more to say?

'A Good RPG story is built during the game play, using what you did in the game to create it. So a good RPG has no solid story it fallows, but instead develops a story as you make your choices through out the game.

At least thats my opinion.

As for Adventure/rpgs go I have to say I liked the Suikoden series a little more than the Final Fantasy series.

this is only partly true. A Western Rpg generally revolves around choice making and such for a character of YOUR choice (the kind you like with freedoms) and a Jrpg should be about the story as the Creator tells it and you play HIS character(such as Final Fantasy obviously). But Zelda is in NO WAY an RPG its and Action Puzzle game and Platforming(where the story is to do one thing and nothing changes along the way EVER)

I believe RPG's are somewhat similar to your definition. To call a game an RPG, the video game must have:
1. A plot
2. A main archenemy
3. A leveling/stats system
4. Equipment for specific characters
5. A main character
6. Spells/abilities
To me, these are the top 6 things an RPG MUST contain.

RPG's are Role Playing Games. You fill the role of a character that either you create or has been provided for you, to either accomplish set objectives or ones you set for yourself.

While Sandbox games are fun, and loosely an RPG, I think you got the perspectives of the types switched.

Even in Dungeons in Dragons, where Role Playing games started, unless you are the Dungeon Master, you are still following a story set down by another for you to discover.
