I play World of Warcraft once in a while... does that count?
It counts as Video Game RPGs. Maybe I should have added MMORPGs as a separate voting option.
As for myself, I play video game RPGs and pen n' paper RPGs. Although I don't have much time or chances for either of them... but every then and now.
But last weekend I played rather interesting type of RPG. A card-based storytelling game. It's basically an RPG, but there are no character sheets or skills. Characters just have name, and a description of their personality and status. And there is no DM.
So how does it work then? Each player is a Story-Teller consecutively. First the Story-Teller decides a scene and the characters in it, and then the characters interact within the scene. At any time, any player may play a card and bring new elements and events to the scene. Once the scene is over, the next player becomes the Story-Teller and arranges an another scene with any characters. This goes on and on until the final scene comes, and the plot will resolve (in this game, it was an attempt of murder and one of the players was the murderer... and his/her identity remained hidden until the final scene).
It's all about improvisation. There are no "builds" or imbalances with the characters, since there ain't any rules.
As for roleplay games, I've done all of them. I've been playing D&D off and on for 22 years.
I would like to make one adjustment though. Proper roleplay games ALWAYS involve paper and books... those video wannabies are for those with low concentration spans and the LARP... obviously a back hander to extraverts.
Actually, the RPG-29 "Vampire" is the best RPG anti-tank system.
"The RPG-29, the most advanced model, which uses a tandem-charge high explosive anti-tank warhead to penetrate explosive reactive armour (ERA) is capable of destroying some modern MBTs such as the T-90. In August 2006, an RPG-29 round penetrated the frontal ERA of a Challenger 2 tank during an engagement in al-Amarah, Iraq."
