What is the reason for there being NO RPG characters?

There's a lot of stupid in this topic on both sides, but I don't think anything can ever beat somebody thinking that Darkstalkers is actually an RPG. It's almost a complete clone of Zelda and Zelda absolutely isn't a RPG.

The rest of this is pretty much people underplaying the impact RPGs have had on Playstation, which is really counterproductive. Fact is, Superbot goofed, and they can fix it with DLC later. Nobody needs to justify or accuse anyone of anything.

lol ratchet and clank? that's it? spyro, ratchet, rayman?

there are more people who have played RPGs than those who have played platformers in a Playstation system in 17 years of Playstation history. deal with it.

yeah a lot of people will know Ratchet than BoF.

oh look at that, there's expontentially more people who know of Final Fantasy than Klonoa and Tomba and Ratchet combined. see, i can do that too.


there were twice as many people who bought 2 Kingdom Hearts games on the PS2 than there were for 3 Jak and Daxter games. see?

I have a feeling Cloud and Snake are actually gonna make it as DLC for their 25th anniversary (although a little late). People have been requesting those 2, along with crash and spyro for a while.

Cloud, Snake, Wander and Crash may be planned for DLC, so Paul Gale may not have been entirely wrong, maybe his source just failed.

Darkstalkers is a much more popular franchise, so you can at least understand why he typed that way.
besides, in Darkstalkers you can customize your character's costumes before you play them, therefore Darkstalkers is an RPG, amirite? /sarcasm
