Role-playing games are one of the most complex, diverse and rewarding genres in gaming. They offer a diversity of stories and intriguing mechanics that can pretty much be combined with any other genre for endless possibilities. Then again, a lot of those mechanics can often times make no sense in the context of reality. Let’s take a look at the 15 role playing game mechanics that make no sense. Prepare your cynicism.

Leveling Up

Leveling up is a core mechanic of many RPGs. It’s supposed to represent you getting stronger. However, it’s really weird when you think about it. You receive “experience” for killing enemies, completing activities or just exploring different locations and yet somehow this is supposed to make you faster, stronger and better than your foes? We can understand undergoing specialized training for skills or hitting the gym but gaining five levels in an hour to attain a huge advantage over foes is a little far-fetched.
