I agree. I read through the Codex thread and one thing that became apparent is that people instinctively object to the term "CRPG definition". They then go ahead and try to prove that a certain game…

Indeed. We may have a good mix in our Setting group, too.

Let's take VtM Bloodlines, for example. I'd describe it as follows:

Some points are too long now. I'd rephrase them slightly to make them concise and fit the format of the others, i.e.:

The point, then, is to get attached to the characters and setting, I guess. For example, if you haven't seen Doctor Who or Red Dwarf, you're missing out. ;)
