Role playing has been around ever since the invention of the theatre in Ancient Greece. Heck, even Egyptians used to play roles at the pharaohs temples, impersonating the most ancient of all buffoons to keep the supreme leaders happy. As time flew by, actors began to turn professional and turn even the most impossible role into a reality… on the cinema screen, sure.
When it comes to video games, there’s probably not a single other genre of the industry that’s more inclusive and expandable than the RPG one. These games have been around from the very beginning, as players assume the role of one character and then battle through the hardships with them until the very last mission, boss, or confrontation. RPG games are king!
What Makes An Amazing RPG
What are the elements of a great RPG title? It all starts with the main protagonist, the one who you’ll be interpreting as a player, and go through with them over the story of the game. This character has to be interesting, as unique as possible, peculiar, weird, powerful, but also weak in part. It has to shine, but also has some unstable features to make him or her more relatable.
Second, there’s the world in which the RPG is happening. This world, usually massive, is made out of the most amazing environments and filled with characters of all sorts, which you’ll meet in a friendly or combative manner. Third, a great RPG should mix and match combat with strategy. Weaponry with thinking, and planning, and acting right. These are all elements of quality RPGs.

How To Beat Any RPG Title
Role playing games have a reputation for being extremely adventurous and interesting, but also hard, long, and a few times boring in between the most exciting parts of them. If you want to beat any RPG game, here are a few tips you should consider before starting your gameplay.
Study the story - First things first, study the story of the game. Role playing games come with extraordinary stories most of the time. It’s a pleasure to look into them, to study the events leading to the beginning of the game, the lore, the realm, everything surrounding the game it’s worth exploring. This is not just a fun way to pass the time, but also a great way to learn about the secrets of the gameplay. About how to overcome levels or defend bosses. By studying the story, the core of the game, you master the gameplay and will have a much easier understanding about how the game actually works. If you can do that, if you put in the time and effort to study the story, you will surely have a great time playing through it in the game.
Learn patience - One of the most vital skills you can comprehend when playing a role playing game, or any other game for that matter, is patience. For gamers, patience is not that easy to grasp mainly because games themselves are made to be fast-paced, filled with action, and sometimes crazy. This is why patience is so important. It’s one virtue every single gamer should strive to master. Or at least understand, in the first place. You need patience for when the game becomes “impossible”, or for when you keep failing at that nagging level you can’t seem to figure out. A lot of patience is needed at that certain boss that keeps whipping your party clean. In all honesty, if you can master patience, you can master any game.
Figure out the main character - Finally, a role playing game is all about the main character of the story, the one character you’ll be playing while in gameplay. If you can figure out the main character, with its strengths and weaknesses, you’ve basically figured out the entire game. Main characters have strong personalities, a core of skills and features that are unique, as well as some hidden powers or tools that make them into who they are. These traits are all important for when you truly want to get the game under your complete control. If you can master the qualities and avoid the weaknesses of the main character, there is nothing that will be able to stand between you and the victory over the game.
