i see this new game called "knights of the old republic" is caled a "role playing" game, but i've yet to figure out exactly what that means.
i play all kinds of video games, and in them all, i assume a role, but this "role playing" stuff kind of sounds like you really don't get to play the game. do you just push a button and "things happen", or do you actually get to interact with the game environment?
i would consider "the legend of zelda" a role playing game, but i hear the final fantasy games are too. i tried to play one of these games, but was very bored. please tell me this game will be more like zelda and less like final fantasy.
