Let's just hope CDPR holds on to that thought in all the best and clearest ways, mechanically and thematically. This just goes to show how much the demo and its reception has... blurred the vision of people looking forward to this game (or is it the other way around... has it cleared it??). And the cynic that I am, I don't really believe they end up being all too wrong about it. A story driven shooter with freeroam sim elements... like Far Cry -- that's how it always tends go. Bleh.The game is not a shooter, according to CD Projekt Red.
As for the rest... I'll let you people tackle the "what's an RPG" topic this time around.
