Personally, I don't mind at all about the site covering non-RPGs. There are plenty of hybrid action games with some influence from RPGs, and some of them are quite fun to play: the DayZ mod for Arma2, Dishonored, STALKER, Mount & Blade, RAGE, Deus Ex, Borderlands, the Thief series, etc.

I would imagine as we transition to a new generation of consoles with more memory and better hardware, we will probably see a lot more of these hybrid action/RPG games, and many of us eagerly await some of these titles. I don't even know if, for example, a game like Bioshock Infinite is an RPG or not. As long as there is at least some minimal opportunity for RP, some kind of influence from the genre, I'm interested in reading about it.
