An RPG is a game where you role play a character into making choices that influence the game in some capacity. Some games have RPG elements like a skill tree, but that doesn't make them an RPG. For example: Spider-man 2 is NOT an RPG because no matter what you do, the game always plays out the same. If the player could choose to be Venom or Spider-man and make decisions with a good, bad, or neutral result, then it would be an RPG.
