You don't earn experience, per se, but your power does increase as you gather items and defeat boss monsters.
Omigod … thread derail imminent!

In the Final Fantasy games (admittedly I've played only the first 6 on GBA & DS), you *do* gain actual power. Zelda games you get extra hearts, but not actual strength. I think they are pure action/adventure games …
