    Those are all store/media links, and they basically categorize them by themselves. (I actually know something about this, I used to do it for a living). Again, why is there not one single mention of RPG or Role Playing Game on the Official Site? Seriously read it.

    Because they didn't mind putting it in there? Because it's common knowledge that Bioware games are considered to be (A)RPGs?
    Check EA's page: http://www.ea.com/mass-effect-3
    Genre RPG, Action

    That's exactly as I explained above. That is only a sales page, for selling EA's games. The genre they classify it under is merely cosmetic and it for sales only. Where on the official site for Mass Effect does it specifically market it as a RPG? I see nothing. If I missed something on there where it is specifically stated as a RPG, then please let me know.

    Electronic Arts' page classifies ME3 as an RPG. That's a store page.

    Mass Effect 3 has a "RPG mode" not an "Interactive Story" mode therefore Bioware still considers it a RPG.

    But two thirds of the game (story mode, action mode) are not RPG. Therefore ME3 can be classified at best as an action game with RPG elements.

    And two fairly recent articles:
    http://www.xbox360achievements.org/...teresting-Mass-Effect-3-Gameplay-Details.html
    http://www.forbes.com/sites/johngau...mes-and-unreal-engine-3-with-mass-effect-3/2/
    I'd say there's enough "Mass Effect 3" and "RPG" word association to consider it marketed as a RPG.

    :what: DU are you getting lulz out of this or what?
    Jaesun I got a fun idea, go through all RPG-lite games and search their offical sites for any that does not mention RPG, then move all their threads to general gaming. Try Diablo 3 for starters.

    Weren't these rules meant to avoid these tiresome semantics wars? UUUUUUUUUHHHH GUYS THIS GAME IS NOT 100% RPG

    I don't know if Jaesun is playing dumb, but if he is that's just childish. This just looks like part of the will of people who would like every RPG to be either isometric and turn-based or first-person and step-based, either with simple graphics with PnP handbook-inspired art for character portraits. Jaesun always flames that this or that game isn't an RPG or isn't worthy of his time to ever be played so he musn't be surprised if we suspect that it's him being deliberately obtuse.

    I have always maintained the stance System Shock 2 and Deus Ex have cRPG elements and should be considered as RPG's. In fact, they have better cRPG elements than the shit we get today. But my voice and fight died years ago when it was decreed it IS NOT A RPG YOU FAGGOT many years ago.....

    Why would it? He probably likes chocolate (come on, everybody likes chocolate), does that make it an RPG?
