Hybrid RPGs

These are hybrid and cross-genre RPGs, including interactive storybook adventures. Others are puzzle, card or jewel-match games with certain RPG elements such as quests or special equipment you can earn. Others are essentially RPGs that use a puzzle or arcade mechanic for combat, or strategy sims with a strong RPG element. This category includes games that RPG lovers will probably enjoy, even if they're not exactly RPGs, or pure RPGs.
