"They are both RPGS!"

No. Borderlands 2or 1 is an FPS with very very minimal RPG elements.

You call Borderlands 2 or 1 an RPG, you'd have to say all Call of Duty games are RPGs. They are not.


No I wouldn't have to say CoD is an RPG.

Borderlands 1, and 2 IS A RPG THOUGH.


Explain how. What, because of Skill trees? The token system in BL2?

Please. Do explain. Would love to hear this.


And what do you consider an RPG, then? Could you explain that, or should I start making condescending posts to attempt to make a point without actually saying anything of substance?


A straight up RPG does not incorporate elements from other games, such as First Person ones. Otherwise it's a hybrid and should be called as such. Much like if a Driving game incorporated XP and a skill tree system, it would be a Driving/RPG game.

By all means, say whatever you want.

I'm ending this NOW it's not an FPS or an RPG it's a role playing shooter That's what GearBox call's it and that describes it best.

2012 was the best year this generation if you are a RPG fan. We had games like:

Atelier
Tales of Graces F
Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
Borderlands 2
Kingdom of Amular
Guild Wars 2
Diablo 3
Mass Effect 3
XenoBlade Chronicles
Final Fantasy 13-2

Man 2012 was a great year for gaming for me. Hopefully this year we will get more quality games like Ni No Kuni.


And how could you forget Persona 4 Golden.

Wtf is an rpg in the first place, then? What does it actually own itself, since the way you put it makes it sound like the genre doesn't exist. Action/rpg, fps/rpg, strategy/rpg. How do you get a non hybrid rpg?? I mean the term role playing game more accurately describes games like CoD than it even does most supposed rpgs.

By his definition, games like Persona 3 or 4 don't fall into the RPG category due to the social sim aspects. Games like the Tales of series don't fall into the RPG category due to the action-based combat system.
