Sleeping Dogs
« on: August 21, 2012, 01:45:52 AM »
This amazing game needs to be discussed!, andI do believe this to be an rpg.  it has both exp and lvls.

Sleeping dogs was just released by Square-enix, and tells the story of wei shen an undercover cop in hong kong.  This is an open world game with an amazing story, and an even more amazing local (hong kong).  Not to mention the best voice acting i've ever seen in a game, it even features emma stone the love interest from the latest spider man movie.

not to mention that this is the closest we are ever getting to shenmue 3.

If the Yakuza games don't get placed in the RPG forum then there is no way this should.

I'm not objecting, and I'm not saying that Sleeping Dogs is or isn't a RPG (since I know very little about it), just saying that using "you play a role" is about as all-inclusive as "you play a part in a conflict of some sort" or "you shoot a gun" or "you swing a sword."

Nope. I'll need something more substantial, and given where Yakuza stands you'd need a lot.

A progression system doesn't really mark what an RPG is, it's simply an element.  God of War has a progression system.

That aside, I really enjoyed what I played of Sleeping Dogs.  I hit a guy into an aquarium and then beat him with the fish that popped out.

People tend to let their grandpas get away with crap they wouldn't allow for someone younger. A few Zelda games like OoT being released with RPG slapped on the front helps though.

Oh, yes, seems there's a demo on the PSN. Think I'll give it a try later.

Well, does Yakuza have experience or levels?

My friend described this game as "way more fun than GTA4" so I really want to play it now.

It has experience, levels, HP, equipment, random encounters and quests.
The line is thinning.

So why don't people consider Yakuza an RPG?  I haven't played it so I don't know.  Thanks.

They probably figure it should have a teenage main (main) character if it seems really questionable like Yakuza.
Even though that was already done.
And it does have (skill) leveling, just a lot less defined/emphasized than a regular rpg.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.
