Do we need this cat? Wouldn't the "Role playing game" cat be good enough for all RPGs? When I think of RPG I think of ones on consoles, it seems strange that there's a cat for console rpgs, what would then go in the normal role playing game cat? PC rpgs? what's the difference besides the platform. We don't have console FPS and PC FPS cats.

  • The argument for C-RPGs is most likely coming from people who argue that Console RPGS (Typically Japanese RPGs) that are different from traditional US/Europe designed PC-RPGs.

The terms "console RPG" and "PC RPG" themselves are flawed. For example, KOTOR is apparently more of a PC RPG but it's on the Xbox. So if anyoen knows something better to call them, please speak up.
