The systems in these games are governed by rules from the pen-and-paper RPG Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. There have been many turn-based and action RPGs that have utilized parts of the AD&D rule set.
Some games let players customize their character (or characters). Degree of customization may vary, with some games simply allowing to choose between different types of clothes, while others provide more detailed tinkering of features such as the distance between a character's eyes or hair color.
In many role-playing games, especially Western action-RPGs and roguelikes, items can be found that are unidentified - the player can see limited info about the type of item it is, but not specific stats. Usually a scroll or spell is needed to identify loot.
These games are based off of established licenses, such as movies, comics, or TV shows. Examples are the James Bond 007 and Spider-Man franchises.
Game mechanics traditionally found in role-playing games that are incorporated into a non-RPG title.
World of Darkness is White Wolf's horror/fantasy universe in which all of their games take place.
After a long hibernation, White Wolf (now owned by Paradox Interactive) are making a strong push to making more World of Darkness games.
