10 reasons why Dark Souls is an action game and NOT an rpg

#11hak145Posted 5/4/2013 8:49:03 PM
its one thing to say there is no story since i agree with that, but no background or lore? now i know your full of ****. Also it seemed like you posted nothing but negatives while hiding behind a tinted veil of *im saying why its not an rpg, not why its bad*. TC if you wanted to post a review of dark souls saying why its so bad just come out and say so.

10 reasons why this topic was created with ideas that were pulled from a festering ass -

Reasons 1-10 are pretty much the embodiment of wrong.
Provoking other users to respond inappropriately = Troll
Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.

1 reason why Dark Souls is an RPG:

1. It's an RPG
Keep calm and hee-ho

It's an action rpg which means it's freaking rpg game. Get it, TC.

There are over a dozen, close to 20 NPC's you can interact with.
There is a story. A beginning, middle & end. There isn't much in-between that, but there is a plot.

High level loot DOES matter. You can be overpowered in this game & you can over level.

That Knight that one shotted you was optional & meant to be fought later on.

Throws D12 at TC.

TC doesn't seem to have a damn clue about what makes a game an RPG in the first place.
Read the mania:
In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

It might not seem like a RPG to you TC but it is once, just under the more defined term of "action RPG".

You wanna know what really grinds my gears though? When people call shooters like Boderlands and Mass Effect RPGs.
Say no to EA and Ubisoft's online passes. Say no to Capcom and Activision's scummy DLC ways. Say no to NISA's terrible and unfaithful localizations.
