an rpg is when u play as a character but he proggressors as a person and u control how he does that.
DooM3 u play as a character but u he does not progress as a person
Hl2 u play as a character but u he does not progress as a person either
Diablo2 U pick a character and give him a name and as u play he/she levels up and u can choose how he progressors that is an RPG
In FPS u are given a character with a name and already set "attributes" u cannot change him as u progress through the game.
HL2 u play as a character (Gordan Freeman) very much more than normal games because the fact that u live the cut scenes but u do he does not progress as a person and u cannot control how he does
so that is redicoulous that u could think they are RPGS
