You guys need to look at this title as a stand alone title and look at it as an adventure game and NOT a RPG. Believe me you'll enjoy it like I am.

No idea how Super Paper Mario got labeled as an Adventure game and this didn't.

Calling it an RPG is misleading. It does have some light RPG elements, but many adventure games do.

It's an Adventure RPG, a really good one at that.
I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me

Well you get more HP, the ability to carry more stickers (hence packing more damage)......yeah, this is an RPG. It just isn't a traditional RPG.

Super Paper Mario was sort of an Action/Adventure RPG imo.

Sticker Star has turned based combat, non-real time combat strategy, health upgrades, inventory management, etc. In other words, it has many of the mechanics that people think of when they call something an RPG but without leveling, XP grinding (perhaps replaced by coin grinding), weapons, armor, or many of the things people commonly associate with RPGs.

It's definitely a different take on the genre, but there is a lot of fun to be had if people play with an open mind. You have to develop new strategies than ones you might have relied on in typical turn based RPGs but I've felt experimentation has yielded more rewarding results so far in this game.
I sense a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices groaned in disappointment and were suddenly biased.

Megaman battle network featured no experience but is classified as an RPG. Why is this game undeserving of that title

Gaining more HP and item slots would make Zelda and Metroid RPGs. They're not RPGs.
Nope, don't have a sig. Maybe later.
