Adventure; by the title of this genre, you'd think something along the lines of Banjo Kazooie, but really, an adventure game can be anything that involves a good story, some good action, and an expansive landscape on which these things take place.
No I think along the lines of Monkey Island, Dark Fall, Myst, Grim Fandango etc.

Unlike a FPS shooter, you can play it again without following the same path.
I really like RPGs that let you choose to be evil or nice, after beating it as evil, you have to play again to so what happens when you get a nice rating. (eg. Fable)

RPGs are definitly my fabourtie RPGs, you can play them for hours and hours and there will always be something more to do, the amount of secrets in all teh final fantasy games gets you playing for hours, when really most of the ff games can be finished in about 25 hours, i played ff7 for over 100 hours and still wasnt bored, then i lost my game and never played it again
and whoever said teh story hardly changes... i agree partly but mainly disagree: i agree because you get the main character that goes off to beat the bad person who plans to destroy/take over the world (a bit dramaic yes) and in all final fantasy games they have chocobos, moogles and an engineerer named cid. but apart from that they are all
alot different, i mean they made over 15 final fantasy games, they are all the best games ever in my oppinion, and alot of people share the oppinion because the shops usualy run out of stock on teh first day they are released

What, too young to have played Fallout 1 and 2? Baldur's Gate 1 and 2? Or even Knights of the Old Republic? Plenty of RPGs have given you choice. You just have to find them amidst the other "game-a-minute" crap.
How many RPGs allow you to play as evil and nice? One?
. . .
and when fable 2 comes out... 2

Anyway I don't care.

RPG definitally. Adventures just dont have the Story down well enough.
BTW: Another game where you can be evil or good is called Jade Empire, where you can follow the way of the open palm or the way of the closed fist.

But when it comes to story lines for adventure games it has to be clever, interesting and it has to fit together with the game and has to make sense.
No RPG could possibly have the intellectual qualities of an Adventure game.

As for the RPG thing, they are so popular because of the large worlds, ability to play and grow as a different person, and open ended option to do what ever you basically want (well, some rpgs allow this). And there are a lot of games that allow you to choose good or evil. I can not name them all nor could anybody here, but it's not really a new idea. (I believe) all the Elder Scrolls games allowed this. The only problem with RPGs these days are they all seem the same: the same races, weapons, lands, so on and so forth. I just go tired of them and left the ground completely for space.
Anywho, I thought I'd chime in with this. Peace.
