Character progression, combat, and loot.

Story, gameplay, and character progression are all important to me. I also heavily favor menu-driven RPGs, because that way my thinking is more important than my hand-eye coordination.

Because RPGs generally have better gameplay, stories and far more interesting characters than games from other genres, character progression, exploration, greater replay value and character/equipment customization.

Sure some non-RPGs have some of the same features, but RPGs <u>usually</u> do it better.

The same reason why some ppl play PAAGGs. It's fun for them.

But Agri, PAAGGs are not fun tho, so you have me confused...

Because they are incredibly relaxing and can be engrossing.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

They have depth, they get better over time, unlike other games that diminish over time.

Well, you and I are certainly too sophisticated to find PAAGGs entertaining, but believe it or not, there are those who do.

Kill time, good soundtracks/artwork, feels good to perfect a character's stats
