The RPG tag stands for Role-Playing Game. RPGs are a genre of video games that emphasize immersive storytelling, character development, and player decision-making. In these games, players assume the role of a fictional character and embark on an interactive adventure in a virtual world.

Key features and elements commonly found in RPGs include:

  • Character Progression RPGs often feature a progression system where players earn experience points through completing quests, defeating enemies, or other achievements. These experience points allow characters to level up and gain new abilities or improve existing ones. This progression provides a sense of growth and customization for the player's character throughout the game.
  • Storytelling An important aspect of RPGs is their focus on immersive narratives. These games often have complex storylines with well-developed characters, dialogue choices that can shape the plot, and sometimes branching paths leading to multiple endings. Examples of RPG series known for their captivating storytelling are The Witcher, Elder Scrolls, and the Final Fantasy franchise.
  • Open World or Exploration Many RPGs provide players with open-ended worlds full of diverse environments to explore at their own pace. These worlds often contain side quests, hidden treasures, non-player characters with unique stories to uncover - contributing to an enhanced sense of immersion.
  • Tactical Gameplay or Player Choice Some RPGs incorporate tactical combat systems requiring strategic decision-making during battles. Players may have control over party members' actions or be able to customize their characters' abilities according to specific playstyles.

RPGs come in various subcategories such as Action-RPG, Turn-based RPG, and Massively Multiplayer Online RPG (MMORPG), each with its own unique gameplay mechanics and characteristics. Examples of popular RPGs include:

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim A highly acclaimed open-world action RPG known for its expansive world, deep lore, and immersive gameplay.
  • Final Fantasy VII A classic turn-based RPG that features a rich story and memorable characters within a fantasy setting.
  • Diablo III An action-oriented hack-and-slash RPG focused on fast-paced combat, character progression, and loot collection.

RPGs provide players with the opportunity to engage in epic journeys filled with exploration, character growth, moral dilemmas, and compelling narratives creating an immersive experience that can span dozens or even hundreds of hours of gameplay.
