What kind of reductionist comparison was taken for the list creator to add them into the list of RPG's?

This offends me deeply.

There's just no pleasing some people. I got slammed for including hunter games in a list of non-RPGs.

It also says action games, but as far as I know vesperia chonicles on DS is turn based?

Hyrule Warriors is technically beatup action like Warriors series even though it has some rpg in this game, though. I dunno about Monster Hunter since I never play any of them.

Oh. I thought Monster Hunters was an action RPG. I guess I was wrong.

It's a matter of opinion. RPG purists would say it's a third person slasher/shooter.

Loot-based, missions from a mission hub unlock more missions. Statistics are based on equipment developed from loot.

No real story progression, no party creation, no levelling-up.

If Monster Hunter is an RPG, so is Earth Defense Force, Gundam Breaker, etc.

There are some hunter games, like God Eater and Freedom Wars, that are story-based, and have some form of party creation, making them hybrid hunter/adventures, or even hunter/adventure/RPGs.

Hyrule Warriors is more of a beat'em up game, just with tons of enemies and a level up system/aspects associated with RPG's.

The tone of one's post can make all the difference.

I actually consider MH a RPG more so than Kingdom Hearts, which is more of a hack and slash.

But all in all the term RPG doesn't mean anything and no game is truly an RPG anymore.
If you're so great then why do you corrupt those who are just as great?
