Chirag Pattni talks about the prominence of the RPG genre in gaming. The different types of RPGs available and how the genre is influencing many games.
Now a days many role playing games don't have that much role playing in them
I don't consider every game that has experience points and a skill tree an RPG. Borderlands 3 is not an RPG, stop trying to shoehorn it into that category. It is as much an RPG as Diablo 3 is an RPG -- news flash, Diablo 3 is NOT an RPG and I wouldn't even call it an Action RPG. It's a hack and slash random loot game, and Borderlands 3 is a first person shooter/looter game.
Always been my favorite genre. I think that really sparked way back when with Planescape:Torment, then Morrowind, Kotor, New Vegas, etc. Now we're in the sort of Renaissance of classical crpgs with games like Pillars, Tyranny, Wasteland, and the coming Baldur's Gate. Good times.
