How can Mass Effect 3 be considered a roleplaying GAME?

guys, stat and loot based games are rpg's. Diablo 2 is 99% a loot game and its 100% an rpg. In fact, some people consider it the greatest rpg of all-time.

No game video of PnP is an RPG this is an rpg.

Because you PLAY the ROLE of Shepard. And it's a GAME.

ME3 isn't a game. It's an experience.

Obviously some one never played it. Btw if its not a game then show me how far you get without pulling a trigger or walking. Better question is how are jrpgs considered rpgs when they have no ROLEPLAYING.

How many JRPGs have you played, dude? There are plenty of them with multiple choices and endings, it's just their outcomes aren't always determined by a choice in a menu.
