I guess RPGs are mostly visual representations of imaginary concepts.

In most japanese turn-based RPGs there's a map-mode where you see a giant character who is the size of a city walking around a map. I don't think he ate an enlargement potion or that the outside of the city is smaller than the inside. And I don't think that the travel needs to be realistic and take one real time month. Also.. are all the monsters invisible until you face them?

The teammates usually enter inside the body of the main character and disappear inside it like if they were swallowed (from behind? ugh..). Most of the citizens you encounter repeat always the same lines no mater how much you talk to them.

I think that the important thing is the story behind the RPG, rather than the representation of it. Dink Smallwood has some original adventures, and there are a lot of cool DMODs.
