I've noticed that with the upgrades in technology there have been a few developers who have been trying to upgrade RPGs along with it. I mean, that much is obvious, why wouldn't they make RPGs better... but what I mean is that they're taking actions like melding RPGs with FPSs to appeal to a larger crowd.
We've already seen it happen in a lot of games in the past: FPSs where you can upgrade your character's weapon's and armor's levels. Skill upgrades, etc. Hopefully we can get more games out like Deus Ex, which I still quite enjoy.
