Title sarcastically says it all. I've never played the first one, Demons' Souls, so not to sound like a hypocrite... but I am allowed to make my own educated guess and ask a question. That's all I'm doing here. And from the gameplay I've seen of the old and new Souls games, I have to say that it looks like an action/adventure game. Period. I haven't seen any RPG elements at all, which begs the question: Does everyone call it an RPG for the two dumb reasons I sated in the title? And second, anyone here who has actually played the first one can say it is an RPG? Third, if so, please explain.
The biggest selling point of this game for a lot of people, me included, is the fact it is a "JRPG." If it, in fact, isn't, well... That's flat-out a loss of the game's biggest selling point. and not just a "oops," but a GIANT misconception based off idiocy and confusion.
