    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.

    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.

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