Wind Waker HD will be the best RPG of this generation.

It wasn't even the best of anything on the PS2/Xbox/GC gen.

yep, of course it's a RPG.....guess what:

- Zelda is also a FPS, since you shoot stuff from a FP-perspective
- WW is a sailing simulator, since you sail
- Zelda is also one of the best Fighters, since you fight in it
- it is also a puzzle game, because there are puzzles in it
- also it is a very elaborate platformer, due to the platforms
- in the end it is also a visual novel, cause you read stuff

oh, and its an action-adventure.....cause thats what the genre is called....


Uhh so you can't do any of that stuff in an RPG? Riiiiight

Hey, it's your logic; I'm just using it so you can see how ridiculous it is.

You don't know what it feels like to talk to a bird girl.


Ugh Chocolina.... I'd rather know what it feels like to kick her in the face.


I was talking about an actual bird girl, not a hot, but very annoying cosplayer.

Hot & annoying seems to describe multiple FFXIII characters... Sera and Vanille come to mind.

Something being classified as an "RPG" has do with far more then just a genre. There are essential game play characteristics and mechanics that are the basis that comprise of games that people label as part of the "RPG" genre.

Especially when you factor combat devised around character statics that attribute to dice role / rng to calculate damage, defense, evasion, etc.

Zelda does none of these things. In fact there are tons of games that claim to be "RPGs" but don't also follow the concepts established back in the origins of the genre dating over 40 years when they were simple table top games

A fan is confident in the game they prefer being able to stand on its own merits.
A fanatic attacks the opposing game showing insecurity in the game they like.

Game Informer ranked it #1 game that whole gen, dude. Just like SMG2 is the best game last gen.

I'll objectively say while Wind Waker was good game.

Subjectively however one sources opinion is not a concrete conclusion to claim a game "best" for an entire console generation.

Usually something to be considered as such would require it to be near universally praised. Very few games do this at all, if any.

And don't tell me Zelda is not a RPG.

Yes, yes, we know why you really created the thread. You're big on transparency, aren't you?
