I was looking around and came across an RPG for Wordpress.  I thought it was interesting.  Neat project, but I was curious.  Why would someone use Wordpress for a game?  What about Drupal?  Does anyone do that (obviously text based games)?  Examples of any games online you know of?  Thanks.

I can't think of a benefit to useing Wordpress, Drupal, or other CMS, other than authentication.

Well, framework, here, is an overstatement.  But yes, Wordpress (or any other CMS for that matter) can be used to provide some features that you'd need in a game, like chat, private messaging, forums and authentication. It's relatively rare, but it's still something you can find on some community oriented websites.
