"Is Persona 5 really an RPG" /s
Turn-based combat is an automatic qualifier as an RPG. I also failed to see any one respond to my question of how Final Fantasy XV or Kingdom Hearts are more of an RPG than Horizon Zero Dawn. So I'm gonna go out on a limb and say people that continue with the "is it really an RPG" nonsense are doing it because they can't find anything else to criticize about the game. Pickings are VERY slim for the people trying to hate.
