Alright then PSO is like FPS and TPS then... since there's guns in it.

I think it it more like the differences in shmups.


Expand on this? Not sure what you're saying.


As in vertical, horizontal, bullet hell etc. Different flavors but still shmups.

RPGs are much harder to compare and use as analogies.

Halo and Gears are much more similar than Baldurs Gate and Zelda. Zelda isn't even an RPG.

Baldurs Gate is like Zelda as is Halo is like Contra.

the thread would probably gain even more steam if the episode were renamed the more appropriate "Podcast #65 - John's Just Wrong About The Whole Shooter Thing."
