Was being sarcastic. I don't see how the Prime series is part RPG.

Super Mario is an RPG because the fireflower gives you a new ability :^)

Is that your final answer?

Actually the two aren't mutually exclusive, and it was both.

Yeah, but you don't keep it. It's more of a power up than a character upgrade. In Metroid you permanently upgrade your gun, your suit, gain the ball ability, and they're all used in navigating the environment somehow. It's been like 10 years since I played it so I'm probably forgetting a bunch of other elements.

Ah yeah, your role is to play Samus ;)

Gran Turismo 4 is an RPG because your role is to play racers.

No it's not.

My argument has been crushed, but Metroid remains a shooting/adventure game with RPG elements.

Couldn't every game be considered an RPG?

I had a GameStop employee tell me that Pokemon wasn't an RPG at all, and that "X and Y are great because they add RPG elements for the first time in the series".

That's why your store sucks. Among other things.

No. Only games I say are RPGs.

Perhaps 'Adventure' game would be more accurate. By 'part-RPG' I mean that you are 'free' within certain boundaries, to explore the world as you see fit, ignore the main quest and spend your time hunting Lore or finding hidden upgrades. Either way, it's a great series.

I have fond memories of playing the old-school Pokemon games.  I would usually name my rival something like "Shithead."

That it is.

I need to replay all three. I know there's a trilogy steel-case set out there for Wii, but it's a bit expensive.

On the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend, I've begun playing Borderlands.  So far, the game feels like an MMO, particularly with the world and quest design.  That's not a good thing.
