I love how the people who call the genre boring just don't have the mental capacity to understand the point of the game is not to run around and shoot everything you see.

Mass Effect is a RPG hybrid done right in my opinion.

What you said made no sense and was completely irrelevant. No one said anything about twilight. Another person just proving my point.

The problem with our modern era of gaming is that we have been flooded with very bland and generic games, and now people want to try and differentiate their games from one another now and all they do is tack on RPG elements and call it a day. My girlfriend and I are avid RPG "gamers" yet now people say "Oh you play JRPGS". (I play games like Final Fantasy, Xenoblade/Xenosaga, Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean, Lost Odyssey, etc.) People are giving this genre an identity crisis, because they use the term RPG so loosely now. When my friend told me "Yeah Mass Effect 3 got RPG of the year." I questioned him and replied back "I thought that game was more of a third-person adventurer." So the real problem is our modern day gaming society giving it an identity problems, not that the genre is dying out.

^this. With definition we use today, we could say call of duty is a role playing game because you role play as a solider.

^This. Like I said an RPG without twisting another genre will get super boring. Borderlands 2, Skyrim, Mass Effect. FPS and Shooters will get annoying, but toss in RPG, you got yourself a grand and well pleasing game. RPGs are made to be combined with other genres.

^all games you will be forgeting next year when the next entry comes. You ask people to day what their favorite game is and they will still say chrono trigger and ff 7. Regular rpgs just age really well. Why do you think pokemon is still around?
