Role-Playing Games (RPGs) refer to video games in which each player assumes the role of a character, generally in a fantasy or science fiction setting. These characters can often be separated by classes that have defining characteristics (e.g. warrior, wizard, etc.) and increase in power levels as well as skills and abilities as the player progresses through the storyline of the game.
Although they originated from popular tabletop games such as Dungeons & Dragons, modern examples of RPGs in the traditional gaming industry are Witcher 3, Elden Ring, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
Examples of up-and-coming crypto gaming RPGs include Illuvium and Embersword.
