Let’s Talk About SRPGs!

There are a lot of different types of RPGs when it comes to video games. You have your JRPGs, your WRPGs, your CRPGs, your ARPGs and your SRPGs, which can also be TRPGs. And these are just genres: this doesn’t take into account the favorite “with RPG elements” moniker that can be tacked onto any genre. (It’s a racing game with RPG elements! What does that even MEAN?!)

Today I’m going to talk about the SRPG (or TRPG) which is probably not only my favorite RPG genre, but my favorite game genre as well. Mostly because I’ve recently been playing two very good games related to the genre and want to talk about them and why these games make me happy!

This may be the first part in a multi-article series about each kind of RPG – I’m not sure yet. I definitely love all genres of RPG so it wouldn’t be hard for me to wrangle up opinions on all of them. But I make no concrete promises.

Anyway, let’s get started and learn about SRPGs!

Episode 14 – Monkey in the Box

On this week’s episode of Make Me a Gamer, TMan and HarveyZ forego topical news to discuss some games they’ve been playing. HarveyZ has another XCOM 2 update, and TMan’s been playing Hitman 2 and a mobile game called Piffle. We also talk a little bit about Lady Gaga playing Bayonetta before diving into a very spoiler-filled discussion of The Stanley Parable, which both TMan AND HarveyZ had a chance to play before the podcast! (This episode was recorded November 27th.)

NOTE: For about thirty seconds at the 37 minute mark of the podcast, you may hear some audio disturbance. Do not panic, do not adjust your set: it was part of the podcast that was unable to be edited out as TMan is not a professional audio editor yet. There are a few other audio errors within the podcast but hopefully not as noticeable.
