I hate when people call Zelda an RPG. It's an Action Adventure. People who call it an RPG obviously don't play ACTUAL RPG's

absolutely not it has almost none of the classic rpg tropes.

I'd say it falls under the action adventure genres if anything.

Maybe they changed it now, but back then they were always labeled as RPG, even on their official magazine. Also, the category isn't labeled consistently on their site.

Just because Nintendo calls it an RPG doesn't make it an RPG.

I'm not saying that it is or isn't, I'm just saying that Nintendo says it is and asking if people agree with them or not.

Wind Waker is one of the greatest games ever made. Hoping the HD Remake does it justice.
