  • Excerpt: The story is traditional RPG fare. Joe has grown up hearing stories of his long lost father's car battler exploits and dreaming of becoming a battler himself. Upon reaching the age of 16, he finds that his father has left him both a vehicle and a control robot. With his brand new driver's license in hand (complete with bad photo), Joe begins his driving adventures and a quest to track down dear old dad.

  • Excerpt: The sim-type RPG is a subgenre of RPG that features simulation elements as well as RPG elements. A good example of this is Harvest Moon, which combines farming-sim elements with RPG elements. It's an unlikely combo, but the game's fervent fan base cannot lie. Everyone I know who plays it absolutely loves it. The danger of sim-type RPGs like this is that mass-market appeal is limited.

While a gamer can do obsessive amounts of research by reading all the latest magazine and Web site content, putting down fifty dollars when the times comes is still very much a gamble.
