RPG Games

Computer RPG games are digital renderings of the traditional tabletop role-playing games. The player assumes the roles of the characters he controls.

Character Creation

Thus one of the key elements of the RPG games is character creation system. It is implemented in the majority of the games of this genre. In the classic titles, we can choose gender, determine the outlook, skills, and the profession of our playable characters.

The Quests

The gameplay is based on completing the quest from the main storyline. A number of side quests is also available. We play the game as a lone hero or with a team just like in the pen and paper RPGs. The main quest most of the time is saving the world. The storyline has often many twists and turns.

Experience Points

Another important aspect of an RPG game is earning experience points and leveling up. Normally it means increasing the character abilities and gaining new skills is. The higher the level, the better gear they will be able to wear or use.

The Game’s World

The settings of the RPG games are usually fictitious. There are fantasy, cyberpunk, horror or science-fictions worlds. Often these are open-world locations that allow for unlimited exploration.

The Subgenres of the Role-playing Games

The game genre evolved bringing several subgenres such as:

  • Action RPGs where dynamic gameplay and the player’s skill play an important role,
  • Hack and Slash games where our goal is to kill hundreds of enemies in a short amount of time,
  • MMORPG games in which we play online in open worlds with many other players,
  • jRPGs – the games with many features characteristic of Japanese culture.

Each of these genres is different as far as the gameplay and game mechanics does but at the core, each of them is a role-playing game.
