You can't do that! It's contrary to the specific levels of immersion and simulationism that I like!

@GMNoob The problem is that the phrase as we understand it is too specialized for OED to have much chance at it. For example, their definition breaks down for the sentence "In recent years, Call of Duty has begun to add RPG elements..." The word is simply too fractured at this time.

@GmNoob I'm not quite following what you mean here. I would hardly consider the OED to be experts on RPGs, nor is my personal definition terribly important.

@user15299 There is no single, official definition of the phrase "Role Playing Game." Therefore there can be no "evidence" of the type you are looking for (one way or the other).

comment What are possible ways to deal with a player who frequently switches characters?
Some players have the most fun creating new characters on a regular basis. It may not be a case of a player not finding what they want, so much as it's a case of a player wanting to change up characters on a regular basis.
