To me, the newer sandbox games are providing more of what I expect from an RPG than the interactive movie genre. And, I'm having fun with them. I don't really understand how anyone expects to sell a game that's got nothing but cutscene story telling in it as an RPG when any genre can add that to whatever its core gameplay is. Seems a loser of an idea. What made RPGs unique in the past was depth and complexity.
It's quite simple times change. Kickstarter might give us some of that old feeling but it's gone. I quite bitching and moaning and just played what came out. Try it it works.

I play more than just rpg's so for me there is no lack of games. Just don't get me started on the over saturated reused fps games, and lack of rts games now.
