Since when Zelda is a RPG.....
It''s just a shoot''em up with some poor dialogues in it.

A RPG is a ROLE-playing game. In Zelda, you are playing the role of Link. I know that this definition could be used on basically all games, but in this game, the story changes and roles are introduced, a story emerges, etc. It does not have poor dialogue what-so-ever, and it is nearly in no way a shooter, the games is based on puzzle-solving and fighting, action-style. These games are AWESOME action-rpg games.

(*realizes his flame sucked...shrugs* Ehh.)

BTW, I prefer turn-based...but real-time can be cool if done correctly.

Zelda: Save the princess.

Mario: Save the princess.

Both games you assume the role of character. A story emerges. Is Mario an RPG? No. Is Zelda? No. Zelda was an adventure game, with dialogue.

So what is a role playing game, if it isn''t you playing a character, who is on an adventure?

An adventure game (to me) is something like Monkey Island, where you have a lot more puzzles

Mario is just an arcade game.

Shadowrun for the Genesis - my favorite RPG of all time. It was action based. LufiaII - The best role playing story I've experienced. I don't want to mention that I actually cried at the end of it. lol .. But it was turn based. Of course the battles were not as interesting as the story.

It does seem as though turn based RPG's have better stories. Anyone else notice that?

By the way, I consider role playing as story + character upgrading. It's just the way it's been. I consider Zelda to barely be an RPG, with little upgrading.. Though now that I think about it, Zelda had little of either. I guess it's text dialogs are enough to show that it's at least trying to be an RPG.
