By that definition maybe mMHW can be scratched off but Nier Automata is about as JRPG-y as it gets. Hell, FF15 can't be classified as JRPG under that criteria. Nonsense talk.
I haven't played it mind you, but Nier sounds like it skews very action heavy for traditional JRPG standards. Regardless, I'd still call them all JRPGs, hence my thread title.
