Adventure RPGs

There is really only one word to use for this style: ZELDA. Otherwise called "Zeldaesque", this style of RPG is arguably NOT an RPG style, although by definition it certainly is. This game style blends elements of the Action and Traditional styles, but generally is broken down into two major play areas: battling enemies, and collecting items.

Famous Adventure RPGs:
The Legend Of Zelda, Neutopia, Druid, Dungeon Explorer
