So who started "If it doesn't have an RPG, then it's bad" crap?

I'm just wondering, because I've been seeing threads about "Hurr when will the Wii U get an RPG?" and "Durr the Wii U doesn't have a RPG so it sucks" lately.

RPGs used to be special. Then Skyrim came along and ruined the genre. Now every game, every developer, everyone has to compare every new RPG to Skyrim. Hell, even people are calling Mass Effect 3 an RPG.
It's just like FPS games.

Few RPGs (japanese or not) are actually good. Specially since the sixth generation.
I don't know why people use it as a reason to say a console library is bad.

Yeah, no kidding. Skyrim just continued what Oblivion and Morrowind did.

These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

Who said that?

Skyrim was horrible but it didn't ruin an entire genre.

Several GOTY awards and nearly universal acclaim by gamers and critics alike say it's good.

So it's good because other people say so? Must be a fact then.
