There are specific styles of RPG's which may or may not be turn based.  It's like you have the kingdom of computer games.  Then the Phylum which is RPG's then you have Class.  Using TRPG as an example it would be a Flash game. Then you have order which is Indie game. next is Family which would be Steampunk . Genus is Strategy and the Species is Tactical.

If you have any edits to this classification then feel free to share :P
Kingdom-computer games
Phylum- RPG(type of game)
Class- Flash(method of production)
Order- Indie game/one-man army(group who makes the game)
Family- Steampunk(generalization)
Genus- Strategy(specific group of game)
Species- Tactical(Main concept of play style)

And yes, I did just pull all that out of thin air .

heres a free verse poem I wrote for school
You never know
Just what you will find after you
Lost your favorite thing. But
The important thing is that the
Game you play will help you to get by.
