    Black_Tiger, how much evidence will satisfy you? I'm not cherry picking anything. Let's look at Landstalker as an example. It's actually hard to find anything that DOESN'T call it an RPG.

    Again, my main point is not to argue how genres should be classified. I am arguing the reality of how they are/were classified.

    You have come up with your own genre classification system. Great....

    No, that's not at all what I'm saying. Trying to classify a game according to some single arbitrary variable (experience points) is pointless and overlooks the history of how the genre has been...

    I don't think the two of you understand my point, so let me explain it again: Back in the day, games such as Landstalker, Crusader of Centy, and Light Crusader (so-called "Zelda-like games") were...

    Yes, in fact, these games were referred to as RPGs back in the day.

    Look at this scan of upcoming SFC releases in Famitsu from 1991. #3 is A Link to the Past and it is clearly labeled as "Action...

    The 3:37 trailer shows the pro controller being used when the unit is undocked (towards the end when the pro gamers are warming up).

    I would put VERY little faith in that yakuza story. Szczepaniak's anonymous source is very questionable and tells some really fanciful stories. He provides no way to fact check and could very well...

    I don't really think it's fair to compare these indie games with such powerhouse devs. Many of these games have 1, possibly 2 artists working on them, which is a limitation of the budgets and...

    That doesn't describe many of the games listed on that page, which have some very beautiful, high-detail pixel art that blows much of the stuff from the 16-bit era out of the water.
