The Legendary Zoltan Posted March 14, 2015 Report Share Posted March 14, 2015 Mind Wanderer made a point to me in another thread about what is considered an RPG and that is really on my mind now. What exactly classifies a game as an RPG? I know it's an age-old question but let's talk about it here. Here are some games that everyone agrees are RPGs. Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, The Elder Scrolls, strategy RPGs such as FF Tactics and Disgaea, Tales of Anything, Anything of Mana, Breath of Fire, etc. Zelda games are highly debated as to whether or not they are RPGs, though people seem to agree that Zelda 2 is in fact an RPG. If Zelda games aren't RPGs, then Alundra isn't either. Any game with experience points and leveling up is often considered an RPG. Should we count Borderlands as an RPG? I'm not sure where I stand on Symphony of the Night anymore. There is plenty to think about. I look forward to answering the question of what defines an RPG.
