why fuck up the poll by adding a second "yes" option?

Because no doubt there are people who will say "yes" because CP2077 may fit the bill of what an RPG has come to mean nowadays, but not necessarily what they feel an RPG truly is.

To answer that question, we need to first define what an RPG is.

So far it seems to be pretty clear, judging by the poll: "Not Cyberpunk 2077"

who the fuck cares what their reasoning is? why confuse the poll with a compromise option that can mean either?

Well I think it's telling that so far no one has voted YES.

It has undeniable RPG elements, so it is at least partly one.
Still mostly an action game. Just like Witcher 3 was.

Of course, being something like an Action-RPG it will just be called "RPG" by everyone...

More like Deus Ex cause you have a progress system compared to GTA.
More like GTA because it has scripted driving missions with enemies you can't kill until the game wants you to.
So a few minutes of content negate the whole game system thats clearly an rpg with stats and perks?
:interesting:
Everything has stats and perks nowadays. That's not indicative of an RPG, or of Deus Ex specifically. Even San Andreas had stats and progression.

Is Deus Ex one?
System Shock 2?
Elder Scrolls games?
Witcher games?

I think the question is: which one of those games would be radically different without its RPG mechanics? I think Oblivion, Skyrim, The Witcher games, all of those would play nearly the same.
Deus Ex and Morrowind? Not really. I haven't played SS2.

Well, from the screenies it seems like character building-wise it's closer to Fallout 4 than Witcher 3, which is an improvement for CDPR. Of course, I have no idea if those stats and skill trees actually affect anything.

Lol @ your retarded appeal to popularity.
Tell me about those deep Deus Ex rpg mechanics with which the game wouldnt work anymore.

Same with Oblivion or Skyrim. Just because a game is SHIT doesnt mean that they magically arent rpg anymore.
What is the difference for Oblivion in taking out the rpg system and in Morrowind!?
The rpg part falls very flat in both already.
You just dont want to admit that now because Morrowind is popular on this deluded site.

Agreed! And a "Fuck if I know option ???" Its more of one than say Diablo which is just kill/fetch quest clickfests.
