Daniel Erickson, writing director on BioWare's epic Star Wars: The Old Republic has said Final Fantasy XIII is NOT an RPG.
Speaking with Strategy Informer, he said: "You can put a 'J' in front of it, but it's not an RPG," he stated bluntly. "You don't make any choices, you don't create a character, you don't live your character," added Erickson.
"I don't know what those are - adventure games maybe? But they're not RPG's." We utterly adore Final Fantasy XIII, but we have to admit, he has a point.
Star Wars: The Old Republic will be out in Spring 2011.
