Re: What games are you playing currently?
A lot of WRPGs - and honestly, my favourites - have a heavy emphasis on plot. Most everything put out by BioWare, and the better recieved Obsidian Entertainment titles are indicative of this. I play their games pretty exclusively for the plot, and they're generally pretty good at providing games where I feel like I have impacted the plot in a meaningful way.
That's how I feel too. When I'm in the mood for an RPG I'm only truly interested in the story and characters. When I was younger RPGs used to be my favourite genre, but with a job I just don't have the patience to deal with the terrible pacing and inevitable padding. I have at most 1-2 hours to play games in the evening, so I want to accomplish more in an evening than configuring my party's equipment and killing some rats in the bar's basement. If that's all I do I feel like I wasted my whole night.
