I don't understand why "RPG" is in the name of this bundle.

Maybe because 6 of the 7 games in it are RPGs?

They aren't, though. They have "RPG elements," but that doesn't make them RPGs. Any game can be an RPG if you really want to be ridiculous, but that that point it stops being a genre.

You are essentially quoting my previous posts on the matter. I say the exact same thing every time someone calls Zelda an RPG. That doesn't mean there is no such thing as an RPG, as you seem to think. These games are RPGs. They have far more than just some RPG elements.

If a games damage and stat mechanics are based on random dice rolls, then they are RPGs. These games meet the criteria.

The Borderlands games are FPS/RPGs. Van Helsing is a hack'n'slash like Diablo, which is a subcategory of action RPG. WURM is an MMORPG. Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn based dungeon crawler, which is also a subcategory of RPGs. Endless Legend is a 4X strategy (the only one that is not an RPG).
