RP/RPGs aren't really the same. o.o;

RP is roleplay, either a verb or a noun, to indicate that one is roleplaying. RPG, however, originates from the game that involves RPing, which somehow moved to a level of forum roleplaying. You realize video games aren't categorized as 'RPs,' but 'RPGs.'

Some people basically think of it as, when you roleplay, you basically take the role of someone, and that's about it, whereas a game usually involves a plot.

I have no idea how people began to classify RP and RPGs to their own preference, but it's alright at the end.
