Relative Proximity to Girth. RPG occurs when a group of the opposite sex is comprised of larger, average looking people, leaving the least chunky person, by default, more attractive. This person tends to get noticed disproportionate to their actual attractiveness. Thus, the RPG effect.
Is that girl hot, or is it just the RPG?

RPG stands for "Role Playing Game," and refers to any of several types of interacive games in which the player assumes the role of a character in the game. There are two main types of RPGs: Videogames and Table-top.

RPG Videogames follow a set story, and are usually layed out in a similar fashion. Your character and comrades that you meet along the way fight badguys and monsters together, meet people, help people, uncover plots, and usually end up having to save the world. The scope of most Videogame RPGs is almost comically large. Battles are usually fought in a very unrealistic, menu-based manner, in which a certain number of your comrades (usually three) takes on a certain number of enemies. These battles normally happen at random intervals while traversing hostile territory. Personal statistics, like attack power, defense, and life, are displayed as numerical values on the screen. Once all of the enemies are defeated, the battle ends. An RPG videogame is like a novel: its replay value is based mostly on the player's desire to wittness the story unfold again.

Tabletop RPGs are much different. They are played by a group of people who take on different identities for the game. There is usually one person, the Game Master (or similar title) that creates a story and provides the narration. Battles are fought using rolls of dice, or other means, which represent unique attacks and abilities created by the players. Characters in tabletop RPGs have stats as well, and just like in VG RPGs, their attributes increase numerically with their conquests.

Example RPG videogame: the Final Fantasy series
Example Tabletop RPGs: Dungeons and Dragons

Rocket Propelled Grenade: a shoulder fired, man portable, light anti-tank rocket.
The RPG7 entered service with the Soviet forces in 1962, and is massively used by former forces of the USSR, the Chinese Military, North Korea, as well as by a large number of countries that have previously received weapons and training from the former Soviet/Communist Bloc, like the Arab countries.

A Role-Playing Game is a game in which you create a character and have relative freedom in choice. The best RPGs are tabletop/pen-and-paper style, closely followed by those run on IRC channels, because computer RPGs are incredibly limited in choice due to the relatively small amount of information they can contain.

Contrary to popular belief, the more recent games in the Final Fantasy series were not RPGs as such, because you had very little control over the storyline, and the character. I'm not sure at this point in time what genre they were, but despite the level-up system, the games weren't RPGs.
Dungeons and Dragons is a perfect sword/sorcery style RPG, while Spycraft fits the bill for anyone interested in espionage.

You may have thought an RPG was a Role-Playing-Game, or even a Rocket Propelled Grenade. Something fired at tanks, or clustered into an IED. And you'd have been right.

But no longer.

Now it's a Ridiculously Photogenic Guy, or Ridiculously Photogenic Girl. People who have the BSE. The Barney Stinson Effect! Someone who, no matter what situation they are in, are pathologically incapable of taking a Bad Photo,

RPG (Report Program Generator) is a programming language that originated
as a report-building program used in DEC and IBM minicomputer operating
systems and evolved into a fully procedural programming language. Its latest version, RPG IV, is supported by IBM's leading minicomputer system, the AS/400. Historically, RPG has probably been the second most used programming language, after COBOL, for commercial applications on mid-range computers.
"Boy, I can't wait to get to my AS/400 to program some RPG!"
