Nintendo's Giftpia for GameCube, the game is classified as an "alternative RPG", as it does not have the concepts of battles or raising levels. In this game you play as a teenage boy, who must raise 5 million dollars himself so that he can become an adult in the forthcoming Adult Festival in the village. In the quest you must help out various characters in the village to earn money, such as a middle age woman who wants to become a teenage girl; or a girl who wants to become a famous actress. Giftpia is scheduled to release in Japan in April.
They think they can name whatever they want an rpg. Fucking excuse me but you didn't start this genre. Where the hell did you get the right to redefine it? I have been tired for a long time of companies/mags(aka the industry) categorizing games as rpg's or as a new never before seen rpg hybrid just to make a few extra bucks or fans categorizing their favorite titles as rpg's to gain some kinda fucking elite status.
