Role-playing (RPG)

Role-Playing games (RPGs) belong to a varied game genre that focuses on character development. Additional aspects that are often found in RPGs are:

  • Amassing wealth
  • Narrative
  • Tactical combat

Character development in RPGs does not necessarily happen as in traditional stories, but means the main character(s) in the game learns new abilities or improves the capabilities of old ones. Character development also includes collecting armament and/or utilities of gradually increasing power.

If a game does not encompass major game mechanics of an RPG, but includes some of them (such as experience and character statistics) then add the Gameplay genre RPG elements.
