how come Heavy Rain was mentioned but not Red Dead?
... Did you even pay attention to the category's title before you posted? Or the description for it? RPGFan's covered graphic adventures for quite awhile, and Heavy Rain's similar enough to that style of game. Red Dead's pretty far from being like either, especially graphic adventures.
Yes I did pay attention to that, thanks. But some editors in their own lists mentioned heavy rain, thus making it open season for discussion.
I'm referring to the inclusion of heavy rain into the general realm of role playing games.
to start a time old argument about what is or is not an RPG...how come Heavy Rain was mentioned but not Red Dead? I've only played the demo of Heavy Rain but that gave me a solid feel for the game in general. But if that is considered an RPG then surely Red Dead can be if you look at it a certain way.
I'm not crapping on your list at all, just looking for some polite conversation
The book was a great adventure but the ending seemed to jump out of nowhere. I can buy the part w/ the green man since they explained how he appears at random to those in need. But all of a sudden Rand can summon the power and slay like crazy? Do they explain at any point that the dragon reborn would be able to use the power without going mad? If so I forgot. After 800 pages I can't be expected to remember everything :)
