What are RPG games?
RPGs, short for role-playing games, are games in which the player acts out a specific role. This can be done in various ways. The gameplay of role-playing video games is inspired by traditional role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons. In most cases, you play an adventurous character that has a certain set of skills and follows a storyline.
What type of role-playing games are there?
The RPG genre is quite expansive, but can be divided into a few subgenres:
Action RPGs are role-playing games that take elements from action and action-adventure games. These types of games put a strong emphasis on combat. A few good examples of action RPGs are The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dark Souls III and Dark Souls Remastered.
An MMORPG is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game in which a lot of players play an online role-playing game at the same time. It contains the usual RPG elements like completing quests and making your character stronger, but with hundreds of people playing at the same time. The most popular pay-to-play MMORPG games are World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV. You will need a Time Card to play these games online. Another example of a well-known free-to-play MMORPG is RuneScape.
A sandbox RPG or Open World RPG offers the player a lot more freedom to move around and explore. These types of games have a storyline that does not have a clear path for the player to follow. It is up to you to find side-quests and complete them. Games like Fallout 4 fit this subgenre well.
JRPG stands for Japanese role-playing game. This type of game does not differ much from other role-playing games, but they do tend to lay a heavy focus on a solid storyline. In addition to that, it is often combined with a Japanese animated style.
