    Holding off for Ganymede DLC, can't believe they went for Titan, so overdone by now.

    This is a silly argument. Your point was that combat is integral to cRPG gameplay, not choice and consequence. Saying that a game must have zero combat to prove that it is not combat-oriented is silly. It is obvious that Unrest is not a combat-centric game. It's all a matter of degree.

    I said no such thing, you just lack reading comprehension, all I said was that there are no cRPGs without combat.

    But nice moving the goal post

    But that's a weak statement and does not help me decide whether a cRPG should be combat-centric or not in order to be a genuine cRPG, or a good cRPG at all. The point is whether cRPGs should be about combat. Saying that all cRPGs have combat does not prove that point.

    If you want to argue with your imaginary version of myself, you're free to do so, but don't expect me to join

    Yeah, probably a good thing it lost traction right away. I'm working around the clock on a patch. The game is unplayable for a lot of players due to some really, really stupid mistakes on my part. I've already fixed the most glaring game-breaking issues, but I don't want to roll out the patch until I made sure.

    I've got a few games to clear through first, but I'm looking forward to playing this in the next few months.

    Saying that a game isn’t an RPG because there is no combat and the proof is that no other RPGs lack combat is a circular, illogical argument.

    That is all.

    That's the principle of charity. I'm arguing with an improved version of yourself because you are too stupid to make a compelling case for your point.

    Have you ever heard of the "no true scotsman" logical fallacy? How about bandwagoning? Composition and division? Maybe black-or-white? What I'm really trying to get around to saying here is that I think you're an idiot.

    Titan Outpost. Now you’ll say Titan Outpost can’t be an RPG because it doesn’t have combat so there’s no point to your question.

    Disco Elysium will have a few fights (I think they’re optional), though the combat is supposed to be mediated by the dialogue menu. But you could easily use their same system to make a CRPG with no combat, maybe a game where you’re a diplomat or a spy rather than a cop.

    Harvest Moon is an example of an RPG without combat.

    Well, the developler himself said it has a conflict resolution mode, I would have to play it myself to see whether its a rudimentary combat mode or not

    Seems like a legit example, like Alter Ego

    For some reason I don't see romances in that list of bulletpoints. Perhaps you just accidentally failed to include them?

    Why is the guy doing the voiceover slurring like he's really, really drunk but trying to act sober?

    A non-combat RPG built by a dutchman... Tough choices with real C&C include deciding whether to use your land for cattle to produce cheese or using it to grow tulips.
