Heh, just like the term "RPG", isn't it? Nowadays everything is RPG!

I had a guest appearance recently in a university and gave a brief lecture on games development. During the QA segment, one of the students stood up and said:
" I've got this prototype of mine."
" Excellent, and what genre is it?" I asked.
" It's an RPG, because the hero can do martial arts."
… and I nearly had a heart attack.

Remember. This was an university, and a fairly good one.
