That's why, for example, most people don't consider games like Planescape: Torment or Arcanum action-RPGs, but games like KoA or Divinity 2 would be.
Gotcha.

It seems that most games on consoles are action-RPGs. Can't really think of an RPG I've played that hasn't been centered around being in combat.
