Abandonware Role-Playing (RPG) games
Role-playing games share many features with adventures games but with more focus on the characters and the functioning world which they inhabit. Typically there will also be an element of progression as the characters develop skills and experience as they progress through the story. If you enjoy customising your characters and playing within a more detailed environment then role-playing games offer an immersive and fulfilling experience.
Role-playing games take many forms and crossover into other genres, such as the action and strategy genres. Alongside the traditional role-playing games, based on pen and paper games, there are action, first-person and tactical role-playing games as well a regional sub-genres such as Japanese RPGs, typically known as console RPGs.
Highlights among traditional games include the Ultima and Elder Scrolls series, while Diablo marks the introduction of the action role-playing game. Among Japanese RPGs the legendary Final Fantasy games are unmissable.
