- Setting: Many Role-Playing Games start with a great setting.

- Exploration: Once you have your favorite character and proper setting, the first thing you would be excited about is exploring the game world. There are unique game worlds for every video game. From a strictly linear world, where the player proceeds to narrative fragments, or scenes, and isn’t allowed to turn from them to the zoned world maps world, where players gradually unlock the maps after completing their earlier maps.
