Sure. Although many "RPGs" are exactly the same, just in a (typically) fantasy setting. Do you kill the orc with a sword, Magic Missile or Call Lightning? Anyway, as I said, I'm not very far in but I'm not trying to suggest Bioshock is an RPG by any reasonable measure. Just that if you take SS2 as somewhere along the line of FPS<———>RPG, then Bioshock is definitely (a lot?) more to the shooter side.
