I like that you edited your post to say what's not an RPG. To which I was about to ask why does being an Xbox Live-only title discredit a game (Crimson Alliance) from being an RPG? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard. And yes, while some games didn't look like RPGs when they got announced - Dead Island, Heroes of Ruin, Dragon's Dogma to name a few - the fact remains that we were the ones who went to E3, played them and determined whether they were RPGs.
I was at E3 too. And dead island, heroes of ruin, dragons dogma just arent rpgs.
The truth is for me overall this E3 was down and alot of eastern and western games werent really shown that we know are in development and isnt really representative of things.
Hmm this seems to be getting volitile. I think my original intent was clouded a bit by anger.
Anyway thats all I wanted to say. If this topic could be locked. I would appreciate it. It was really only meant for me to give feedback and would like to apologize if anyone was offended. I just felt really strongly. Enough to even post.
