Since when was Binding of Isaac a rpg...


Seems like a lot of those aren't RPGs.

Some people call Zelda an RPG too; it doesn't make them right either.


RPGs have evolved and it isn't a genre stuck with one strict definition anymore.

I use popular definitions on the internet and Borderlands and Monster Hunter-style games are often called action role-playing games.

I do not invent calling any of these games RPGs and if you go to for example Wikipedia you will find every single one one called something with "role-playing" or a sub-genre of role-playing except Toukiden which is a clone of the "action role-playing" game Monster Hunter.

Well if you want to play fast and loose with the definition of an RPG, then every game is an RPG:

Halo: You play the role of an an enhanced human being fighting against aliens.

God of War: Playing the role of a warrior on a quest of revenge against the gods

Gran Turismo: Playing the role of a race car driver/owner

I could go on but you get the point.

Actually, he wrote

"Then there are many games without confirmed localizations. If we can get one Tales game, God Eater 2 and one or two of the lesser known Japanese titles (Exstetra, a Generation XTH game, Mind 0, Conception II etc ) then the next year will be absolutely golden."

Second to last paragraph.

I used popular internet definitions. Had I left out Toukiden then people would have complained too.

No one calls Halo or Gran Turismo an RPG. Many people call Toukiden and Borderlands RPGs. That is why they're in this topic.

It is not by my definitions, it's by popular definition.

But Borderlands is classified as a FPSRPG. Isaac is a roguelike, Toukiden is action and Zelda is adventure...

Pretty sure this "FPSRPG" is a sub-genre of RPGs, I know roguelike is a sub-genre and like I said, Monster Hunter is commonly referred to as an action-RPG and Toukiden is a clone of that.
