What is RPG?

Interested in computer games and want to find the most suitable genre for you? Maybe RPG will suit you? Let's try to figure out what it is.

RPG (Role Play Game) is a genre of computer role-playing games in which players act as any characters in a fictional setting from the first or third person. The goal of the game is to improve various skills: strength, dexterity, etc., i.e. "pumping" the character and the fight against the opponents of the player - NPC (computer-made artificial characters).

Features of the genre RPG

A distinctive feature is that the elements of the gameplay are based on the structure of traditional tabletop role-playing games. If you compare, for example, with a first-person shooter ("shooters"), then the RPG has considerable freedom of action. If to compare with strategies, then in the RPG most often there is one character (perhaps, even with a pet). The plot and ways of development are non-linear. A unique feature of the RPG is that the player decides how to develop in the game world, which of the directions created by the game developer he will pay attention to.The player in some degree can choose the storyline: to kill or not to kill an ally, to fight with him or make an alliance. Regarding freedom of choice, RPG is closest to reality. The most successful implementation in terms of freedom of choice is the game Fallout, and the most famous game in the genre of RPG, perhaps, can be called World of Warcraft (WOW).

Live action rpg

Sometimes, talking about what RPG means, semi-theatrical actions with live players. This is a live action role-playing game. In this case, the players themselves dress up in costumes and act out the characters in accordance with the rules of the game. Such games are also called role modeling. They can be based on books, movies or computer games.
