    Maybe my brain isn't working, or my eyes, or I'm just dumb...all three are quite viable options but it sounds like you're trying to argue that ME is a fps? When it clearly is not. Gameplay is not present through Shepard's "eyes" like in Call of Duty or Halo. It is a third person view, with the camera being placed behind Shepard's shoulders. CoD has a third person game mode, but that doesn't mean its a third person shooter.

    To begin with, ME is an RPG and not a shooter in the way you should classify it, but there is actually a genre called TPS which stands for third person shooter, if the game have both its a multigenre game i guess. Gears of war is a good example of a pure TPS game without the RPG bits.

    Games can have multiple genres, e.g. Borderlands is a FPS/RPG.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    Classifying a game with multiple genres is just being an indecisive mellow prick.
    There is always a core element to what it is.

    And in borderlands case, its a FPS. With some rpg elements.

    There may be more than one core element, just as well as a movie doesn't necessarily have the one core character and a person doesn't necessarily have the one core trait.

    Let's take a look at Fallout: NV. It's certainly FPS. It's definitely RPG. It's by all means adventure. It can be called a single-player MMO. What is the "core element"? I guess it depends on the player and his/her priorities.

    "Single Player MMO" is a contradiction in terms.

    Also, in what way do you think Fallout New Vegas could be considered an MMO? It's not massively multilayer, or even online at all, and those are only 2 criteria for being considered an MMO.

    Well, almost everyone I talked to about my love for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning claimed it to be a "single-player MMO". So it's not my development.
    Since Fallout: NV seems close to KoA:R to me in terms of general gameplay, here we go...

    I wish, that throwing out the citadel god child would be possible as ending. Or sending Conrad Verner to control ending.

    I wish the ending was Morinth and Thane making babies in the afterlife. Two the most tragic characters partying hard would be the most bright scene I can imagine.
    And, after the check of reach and flexibility, Morinth comes back to the mortal world, knocks the Blue Child out the airlock with her heel and invites the Reapers to a party with cookies! Samara has to know how to bake them...
