Well, I wrote the article and I can confirm you are dead wrong. I grew up with the Ultima games, Neverwinter Nights, Fallout etc.

The article is written in the context of the console generation, so yes, its focussed on the 360 not, PC. While compared to many PC RPGs its an action rpg, as a console RPG it was very important in embedding console RPGs into the mainstream conciousness. You may sneer, but like it or not, consoles define the gaming market now.
