Why Are RPGs your favorite Genre?

    On average, I like RPGs for three reasons:

    1) The stories. They're nowadays aways unique and highly enjoyable.

    2) The music. It really sets up any mood you want. Final Fantasy has the best music. I mean, Nobuo Uemetsu is the god of video game music. If there were a religion dedicated to him, I'd be the Pope.

    3) Variety. Most of the time I play traditional Rpgs, where action is mostly outshone by story. But then there are games like .hack. The action drives the story forward morethen the dialouge.

    There are also games with transparent stories, where it is 95% action, 5% story. Aka, FFI and the early DW (although I really don't like DW). Here you get a basic conversation ("Get the Glorious Gong of Gonjira and the Fantastic Flute of Fiddlewinkle") then you have a long dungeon or two, where you usually have to build your characters up 5 levels before you can beat them.

    That's all I have to say.

    Just like most of the people here, my main attraction to RPGs are the stories and characters. I've always loved fantasy, and tales of epic battles and valiant heroes, and thus RPGs are right up my alley.

    I also appreciate the replay value that most modern RPGs have - with almost all RPGs being filled with mini-games, optional bosses, sidequests etc they can keep you entertained for a very long time, and really are worth your money.

    I watched a few people play Dungeons & Dragons, then I got playing. The Video RPG part came when I watched a friend play FFIV first. I lost him as a friend, so it turned out I ended up finishing the game he started. Then I restarted a game of my own. I was absolutely drawn into it. Then I realized my interests also were Mid-evil and Sci-fi. So everything fell into place.

    most importantly the story and characters. because these will definately leaves a deep impression of the game.
    second would be the combat system, the leveling up, learning new skills and spectacular attacks.
