Welcome to Gaia! ::

Besides the Fables and Harvest Moon?
This is kind of a dumb and random question, but for some reason I really like that aspect in a game.
I know there probably aren't many though.
Educate me. mrgreen
there's Rune Factory, but thats a Harvest Moon spinoff

What the hell else would you call it? You are essentially playing a role. I guess.

I love how everyone uses the literal words to their "advantage"

I'm sorry to say, but RPG's MUST have micro-management. Weapons, armor, stats, and possibly a few other things.

This is what keeps Zelda from being an RPG and ONLY an Adventure/Action game!

Actually, according to basic definition of an RPG, as stated by the industry. An RPG must have micro-management.

If there's micro-management in HM, then please point it out.

Simulation. That is what Harvest Moon is.

As for a generational-type RPG, it's an old one, but a good one. Phantasy Star 3.

Don't give me that, I was wanting to hear your own words.

Now what's the difference between Terranigma and Zelda?

I do believe the spinoff Rne Factory has Micro-Management.
Edit: Rune Factory.

Ah, that's easy! it has leveling up! There's also items that you can use to increase your health, as well defense (new armor) and attack (new weapons) I think there might be a few items that increase those things as well

To a certain extent, but the game's still more simulation than it is RPG. More importantly, the game's a spin-off and only one game in the series. You can't judge a whole series on a single spin-off.

Exactly, leveling up. That's what defines an RPG.

Zelda doesn't have new and more powerful armor and weapons? That's news to me. Also, Zelda has Heart Pieces which increase your Health, so that one doesn't work as well.
