Gameplay feature: Character development - Automatic leveling
Group DescriptionThe oldest form of character development. After leveling up, skills are increased automatically. This is a standard feature in rogue games and most early role-playing games. It is also nearly universal in Eastern RPGs.
- Since the vast majority of Eastern role-playing games have automatic leveling, for the purpose of space economization they should not be included in this group.
- Games which are party based on skill distribution, e.g. Baldur's Gate II, do not belong into this group as well.
