Power Gamer

You can power game almost any other tabletop activity, maximizing your chances for success and memorizing the best tactics. But tabletop RPGs are the only type of game to really involve roleplaying, the element of acting and adopting a persona. RPing is the unique element of the game found nowhere else. It’s interesting that few people really play up that aspect. Players will spend weeks looking up new feats and designing builds but how often do gamers spend time reading books on improvisational acting, rehearsing to capture the character’s unique “voice”,  or learning how professional actors get into character.
