Yes. RPG is such a broad term.
Is FFXIII really an RPG?
" @Vorbis said:It would be awesome as well as awkward as I paragon interrupt everyone." Mass Effect 2 was just a third person shooter with dialogue that let you pick the levels. See, I can be an ass too. "But what happens when Gears of War 3 has that? "
" Dicerolls do not an rpg make. Unless you are willing to concede that yahtzee is an rpg. "Board games and gambling games have combat dicerolls and saving throws based on stats? No? You're just oversimplifying shit you don't fully understand? Gotcha.
yeah it is an RPG, but I guess that what is throwing yo off is that the Final Fantasy series has always been traditional J-RPG stuff.
Tha goes for FF1 to 10, after those, when you think about it, FF12 and FF13 share a lot of things. The combat in 13 might seem to play itself but it just shifted the gambit sytem ( which was probably too complex for non hardcore gamers) into a Job system (like most uneven FF numbered games) which has predefined scripts for each job.
I'm not a huge fan of not being able to choose my party early on in the game but that goes out as a design choice.
