What Does RP Mean?

RP means "Rating Pending" and "Role Play."

Rating Pending

The letters RP are used by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) with the meaning "Rating Pending" to indicate that a game has not yet been assigned a final rating.

Role Play

RP is also used as to mean "Role Play," as in the abbreviation RPG (Role-Playing Game).

"Role Play" is widely used outside of gaming, especially in educational settings and the theatre. In this context, participants change their behaviour (and sometimes appearance) to assume a role.
