Feels more like a movie, given how often you 'watch' what has been decided that you WILL do!
One hell of a long movie (43hrs ish so far) but a movie ...
So Baldur's Gate is not an RPG?The only real rpg's are the paper one. Everything else (including video games) can have at last common things with rpg. And video game "rpg" genre because of the fact it's not real can mean anything. There's no solid definition, so all gamers have their own vision of "rpg". And that's the cause of arguments online whether CP77 is an RPG or is not, while the answer is in the middle. The closest game to CP77 is for me Mass Effect 1, but on steroids. Your character is V, and just like Shepard V has past, he/she is not 100% your character, but by playing you can choose path for him/her. There are (mostly hidden so you have to predict if it can affect story) choices, usually little ones for a player, but important for a game (like death of not important NPC), but sometimes these choices can have huge consequences. The action actually is more focused on rpg elements - enemies are typical bullet sponges for low level / poorly developed character, while high lvl, well developed character can be too OP even without using guns. Loot system is... Meh? Not that bad, but not good either. And lots of people sucks at being stealthy / netrunning, so they say it's poorly balanced etc.
Well that was back on June 12, 2018, two and a half years ago, back when that's what everyone thought the game would be, and what CDPR has always said it would be. That post in particular wasn't about that though, it was about the uproar from fans after CDPR announced the game was first-person. Anyway, they have since amended the description/genre since release. Go to the GoG website and click on the RPG category and you'll see Cyberpunk is not found on the RPG page:
