Role-playing and adventure games are distinctly separate story-based endeavors. Role-playing games emphasize the development of one or more player-characters, usually reflected by increasing levels or statistics. Role-playing games are often open-ended, and frequently rely on combat to develop the characters. Adventure games are interactive stories with novel-like plot. Story and atmosphere are the most important elements of an adventure game.
