Some people call Zelda an RPG too; it doesn't make them right either.
RPGs have evolved and it isn't a genre stuck with one strict definition anymore.
I use popular definitions on the internet and Borderlands and Monster Hunter-style games are often called action role-playing games.
I do not invent calling any of these games RPGs and if you go to for example Wikipedia you will find every single one one called something with "role-playing" or a sub-genre of role-playing except Toukiden which is a clone of the "action role-playing" game Monster Hunter.
TC, you forget Tales of Innocence R and Tales of Hearts R.
Actually, he wrote
"Then there are many games without confirmed localizations. If we can get one Tales game, God Eater 2 and one or two of the lesser known Japanese titles (Exstetra, a Generation XTH game, Mind 0, Conception II etc ) then the next year will be absolutely golden."
Second to last paragraph.
