    i have only played 6 of the seirses shown here. Surprised Disgea wasn't on the list since it is a RPG/Strategy game. Some have gone 1 system only and that sucks.

    I only said Elder Scrolls because I've played Skyrim a lot most recently. I used to love Final Fantasy games (even played the remakes of the first 2 NES titles for PSP not too long ago). They are much higher quality than Elder Scrolls as far as game play, but I kinda like the open-ended style of Elder Scrolls. I also like Fable, but I wish they would put a little more effort into the story line. I haven't played Ultima since the earliest games, and most of the others very little or not at all.

    Probably Baldur's Gate for its time. Mass Effect and Fallout aren't bad either. Fable is just a joke, however.

    If we're talking sales and being knowN for pushing game systems to their fullest capability then FF is at the forefront. But I also love the Mass Effect series and Fallout. The rest are good as well, but those are my favorite three.

    No, its an action game with rpg elements. Its not the same as an action RPG.

    In my opinion (am not saying it's fact) Diablo is a hack'n'slash dungeon crawler. Which would most definitely be classified as a strain of action-rpgs methinks.

    Its an action game with RPG elements. ROLE PLAYING is part of a RPG game. RPGs started off as adventure games which were centered around the story and had a stat system. You aren't role playing in Diablo. It has zero point. This is how diablo plays.

    Fight monsters, get loot, level up, sell loot at a town. Continue the process until you become overpowered and can kill enemies in about two hits.

    Well, I don't even like Diablo or dungeon crawlers much (fighting a boss requires little to no strategy) - once you've played one you've played them all in my opinion - so I've no reason to, I don't know, DEFEND the genre or something ... but I think you're wrong in that what Diablo can be defined as is up to interpretation.

    In my opinion (and I cannot stress those words enough) Diablo has MORE RPG elements than it does action elements. In fact, I would go so far as to say that is HAS no action elements and that the only thing separating it from being a good and proper, full out RPG is its distinct lack of a few particular and significant RPG elements. For me, this would classify it, and other dungeon crawlers, as an action-RPG (for being, in the word's purest sense, somewhat more 'action' focused than standard RPGs) and as belonging to the RPG family.

    In contrast with this little discussion, below here I argued with Black Poison that Zelda games are NOT RPGs or action-RPGs, but are action-adventure games with RPG elements. So, as you see, I am not all for throwing everything with RPG elements under one blanket.

    In any case, I can't prove you wrong and you can't prove me wrong because genre assignment, in video games at least, is totally arbitrary.

    Mass Effect 2 ROLE PLAYING elements that diablo doesn't. You play as a CHARACTER and its not always about the action, which diablo lacks. You start to connect with the characters, and feel emotions for them. Some of the Legend Of Zelda Games are RPGs, while others are hack and slashes. Gothic II, my favorite hardcore RPG of all time is centered around the story, your decisions, combat, and so much more. Lets compare Mass Effect 2, my favorite Sci-Fi Action Game with RPG elements to Diablo.



    Diablo lacks ZERO depth, is brainless, and you don't care for the story or main character in any shape or form. Its just an action game with RPG elements. You don't connect to the character, you just don't care and only care about the ACTION in the game. End of discussion.

    I try to state facts over opinions. Especially do to the fact I'm a competitive gamer who owns all the current consoles(yes even the Wii I know it was a fad, but its a VERY good dust collector). Please excuse my renegade tone, but facts overshadow opinion.

    I'll excuse your tone. But I do think you take yourself a teeny bit too seriously. I ALSO own all the current consoles (and some not so current) - and I'm not in the slightest ashamed to say that I friggin' love my Wii, because as well as its standard fair it has some awesome 3rd party gems that unfortunately didn't get too much attention. This much can be said for MY gaming style: I'm not a Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo fangirl. I couldn't be considered competitive because I prefer single player games (mostly RPGs and strategies, but not exclusively), I think Nintendo's and Sony's handhelds are as legitimate as their home console counterparts, I find the use of the word "hardcore" amusing, and I have interests outside gaming - which doesn't make me any less of a gamer.

    As I said previously no amount of facts (or rather, attributes that you have observed) will amount to Diablo being proven as belonging to either the 'Action' OR 'Action-RPG' genre because what constitutes either genre HAS NOT BEEN DEFINED (you may find many a forum where some neckbeard has decreed what defines any particular genre but there IS NO authority on this subject). Genre classification in the gaming industry exists to provide convenience to its consumers and for no other reason. Though there can be gene...

Though there can be general agreement on what constitutes, say, an RPG, because there is no set in stone criteria to be met in order to be classified as such, genre classification IS, as I have said, totally ARBITRARY. Therefore, based on your knowledge, experience, and interpretation you are free to classify Diablo as whatever genre you wish and I will not object.

    I apologise for the wall of text. :/

    The genre of RPGs originated from Adventure Games, but it has stats, BUT they're suppose to be heavily story driven. Action RPG, also known as an action game with RPG elements, are defined as Hack n Slash games.

    I'm starting to wonder if you comprehended that last paragraph of mine. Regardless, the RPG genre originated from PEN & PAPER DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. That much IS fact. Unless you consider THAT an adventure game (as you are at perfect liberty to do so despite my opinion) I will have to disagree with that statement.

    It also might interest you to know that the terms "hack 'n slash" and "dungeon crawl" both came from pen & paper Dungeons & Dragons as well.

    I couldn't be bothered to find what you might consider a more credible source to retrieve a quote from so Wikipedia will have to do. Here it is:

    "Hack and slash made the transition from the tabletop to video games, usually starting in D&D-like worlds.[2] This form of gameplay can now be found in a wide range of action role-playing games, including games such as Lineage,[3] and Diablo.[4] Distinct from hack and slash role-playing video games, the term "hack and slash" also began being used to refer to early weapon-based beat 'em up action games, such as Golden Axe.[5][6] The term "hack and slash" is today used to refer to a distinct genre of 3D third-person, weapon-based, beat 'em up action games in the style of Devil May Cry,[7][8] including games such as Onimusha,[8] Ninja Gaiden, Knights Contract, God of War, Heavenly Sword, and Bayonetta.[7]"

    Well if your gonna quote wikipedia
    "An adventure game is a video game in which the player assumes the role of protagonist in an interactive story driven by exploration and puzzle-solving instead of physical challenge.[1] The genre's focus on story allows it to draw heavily from other narrative-based media such as literature and film, encompassing a wide variety of literary genres. Nearly all adventure games are designed for a single player, since this emphasis on story and character makes multi-player design difficult.[2]"

    Yes there were Table Top pen and paper Adventure games. But RPGs are LITERALLY Adventure games with stats. I'll give you an example.The Gabriel Knight series is an adventure game. Gothic II is a hardcore RPG. Diablo is a hack n slash, also known as an ACTION game with RPG elements.

    Back up. ARE YOU ACTUALLY TRYING TO TELL ME THAT RPG's ARE IN FACT NOT RPG's BUT ARE ADVENTURE GAMES???

    Oh my god. I'm sorry, but I don't think I can continue with this any longer. This conversation is descending into the realm of madness. /abort
