RPG drivers

  • Plot-driven
  • Character-driven
  • Sandbox
Currently, I find myself preferring character-driven games. Note, however, that the NPCs are characters too.

There’s a follow-up in the works.

It'll be interesting to read the follow-up! I find that sandbox games almost naturally fall into the character-driven category. With no plot to drive them anywhere, it's the PCs themselves that move the game, which encourages role-play, etc.
