RPG, shooter: what's in a name? Not much any more, BioWare boss Ray Muzyka's told Wired.
“Genres are almost a vestige of the past,” he said.
“In a way, a lot of the best shooters are RPGs as well, because they allow you to have progression, exploration, combat or conflict, and a story.”
He added that the definition of RPG is “broad.”
“The possibility space is almost limitless,” he said. “I see games like Grand Theft Auto headed in the same direction.”
So there you go. Thanks, GoNintendo.
