    They had me up through Ultima V. After that, I lost interest.

    Thank god, someone agrees with me...

    > and pen/paper ones sound cool (never heard of it before!).

    Go buy a book and read them - look for D&D, Vampire: the Masquerade, GURPS, or maybe Legend of the Five Rings.

    FF 1&2 were quite cool... played them on my trusty b/w Gameboy

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Then what would you call it? I think it is definitely a role playing game. You gain levels, spells, etc. Every aspect of the game is role playing. It is definitely not a strategy game. A strategy game is like Legend of Zelda.

    It is not an action game. An action game would be like Metroid. It is not a sim. A sim (aka FPS) would be like Doom, Wolfenstein 3D, Flight Simulator, etc.

    So what would you call it? I think it falls 100% under the role playing game category.

    Sorry, I'm gonna stick to my guns - they're not open-ended enough, by my definition... Definitely more of an RPG than Zelda... I'd call them adventure games (same place I'd put Gabriel Knight)

    The best role-playing game out there involves me, a can of whipped cream, and my GovtCheez doll.

    Dammit Deckard - how many times have I said - we're not allowed to have fun at work! Laughter or glee of any kind is strictly prohibited!

    Whoops. I thought I had you, but my research concludes it is actually "Cheese the Doll".
