What are RPG games?

RPG stands for role-playing game. These games usually focus on a single character or a small group of characters. Unlike other games, where a role is there for the sake of gameplay, RPG characters make their way through a story. In most cases, you gain experience as you fight, allowing you to upgrade your characters and improve their strength. Other types of RPGs are more passive, where the player explores by pointing and clicking, solving puzzles along the way.

History of RPG games

The original Role-playing game was called the tabletop role-playing game. It is conducted through discussion not through physically performing the characters' actions as is the case in live action role-playing games (LARP). The game master decides on the rules and will make sure that all players play according to the rules. In 1974 a version of Dungeons & Dragons was released through electronic media. These computer RPG's were influenced by electronic gaming and can be divided into single and multiplayer games.
