The point is action is a major part of the enjoyment of Gothic 2+NOTR. Learning the fighting is a major element in the game. Put crap fights in the same game and it will be a half interesting RPG. So I have the same point of view.

But I name action RPG the real time Rpg. I don't use real time RPG because nobody do. Diablo like games are Diablo like games. I think that some want use RPG for a game like Gothic and Action RPG for some other games, I imagine ME2 for example, because they think RPG need follow a strict definition that they know.

Well RPG tag in computer games has been used a long time before those younger was born and I don't see why change it because some younger believe to know the "truth".
