@SeekerI'm interested in knowing YOUR views on ME2 with regards to how much of a rpg it was.If this continues, soon every game will become an "rpg". After all, you do role play in almost every game.I agree that we should play and enjoy games irrespective or genres. But that doesn't mean we can compare games of two different genres, or for the sake of comparision, pass a game of one genre as belonging to another. Just as we cannot compare Crysis to Witcher, or we cannot compare Dirt 2 to Witcher, we cannot compare ME2 to Witcher, for the **** simple reason that neither Crysis, nor ME2 are rpgs. I love Crysis, and I thought ME2 was a decent game too. But I never compare them to rpgs because you just can't compare games from cross genres.ME2 might be a more"fashionable" rpg, appealing to a wider shooter crowd, but it sure as hell isn't a true rpg. Even Bioware said they wanted to make ME2 first and foremost a shooter, with rpg elements. Just check their press releases if you're in doubt. And still, it's the fans who incessantly keep calling it a "new-age", "improved" rpg.Classification is not important when you're playing a game. It should not matter what genre a game is for you to enjoy it. But if you're offering comparisons, or critical appreciation, you need to be mindful of the classifications as well. If we don't, very soon even Gears of War (a game I love BTW) will become an "rpg".
