I recommend watching the following video, listen closely to what she says, word by word. It's 20 minutes of someone who knows and explains to the viewers and especially to those confused (who appears to be many), what ROLE-PLAYING truly is; AT GODDAMN LAST! someone who explains this clearly!! I scratch my head everytime someone says CP2077 is a poor RPG, even clueless youtubers saying Cyberpunk 2077 is not a role-playing game.
I only watched the first few minutes because she is already wrong there.
Choose what kind of person your v should be, but there is no real choice to make.
So lets compare:
Even in Mass Effect you can make bad/evil choices make your character a real ahole and this will give different est of choices through the game and Mass Effect isn't heavy on the RPG side either but at least it is there and it has consequences even in main story missions, like screwing your allies over and just leaving them.
Even an old game like Baldur's Gate series that is more of a full RPG game you can become badass evil and screw people over. Same with the old Kotor games.
This also makes you feel more good/evil or even neutral if you want.
On the other hand games like Borderlands you shoot you kill everything in sight more or less and there is some character development, but there is no way to play nice or bad or neutral or anything else you just run around and kill stuff and explore for better loot.
But according to her definition Borderlands is RPG and not a looter shooter and any game where you can define your character by increasing some stats or skills is an RPG, she seem to have no clue at all.
The definition would make Overwatch and Quake RPGs because in quake you can choose what wepon to use and pickup armor to increase survivability thus making it an RPG because you made a choice to go pickup the armor you are playing a character .....
