A Role Playing Game for the computer or the Video Game Consoles in which the protagonist, (or rather, the Player Character) has a lot of ground to explore. You are given a goal, with few if any clues on how to achieve that objective, and in fact there is stuff to do on the side, other than that objective.

That is, the storyline does not progress in such a manner that:

  1. You cannot go back to previous areas.
  2. All of the choices you can make are obvious
  3. The destiny of the characters is not pre-determined no matter what the characters do, short of dying.

Good examples of Free Exploration RPG's include:

  • Saga Frontier
