So here's the next part, about Role-playing games! Remember, only Computer Role-playing games and no MMOs!

The second poll question might be a bit unclear: Basically I was thinking about adding a third choice, but I'm going with the more obvious different types of levelling, the ones where you get points to spend on stats and skills after killing monsters or completing quests, or ones where you get higher skill in whatever weapon or skill you are using, which would be the more realistic type of levelling, although it's not as common.

This is about gameplay, doesn't neccesarily have to be what gameplay your favourite game has, but rather what you think works best for you. I know that RPGs often depend on their story, and for example with me my favourite RPG is Fallout 2, because of the true open-ended nature of the game and the many fully working features it has. I also love the turn-based combat, but I don't like 95% of all other types of turn-based combat I've seen (Like Final Fantasy). So, because since they won't make more isometric hexagon-based RPGs like Fallout 2, I think the future for RPGs lie in Real-time combat, like Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (<3)

I concur
What came first, the spamming or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids reading thousands, literally thousands of posts about anime, 4chan, flaming, goatse and emos. Did I make terrible posts because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I made terrible posts?

It depends on the platform, for PC/console I prefer real time RPG's, whereas for handhelds I like turn based ones better.

Daggerfall is still the best of the elderscrolls series, I don't care how buggy it is or how much better the graphics of the later games are it still pwns the series up.
