I'll say its both since it is a simulation game, yet you can play a role so its a role playing game

Simulation?

It's an RPG with all that quests and stuffs. Most of the traditional Sims formula isn't even present so it isn't a simulation anymore.

It's both, the sims has always been simulation, but now with Medieval they introduced RPG features such as quests and different interactions between your sims, however it can get a little repetitive over the time, as with any Sims game.

I'd say simulation since the character you play is essentially yourself projected into the Sim-verse. There's no character history beyond what you create, so it's safe to say that your character didn't exist until you created it.

The new features are very RPG-esque, but the game itself is not an RPG by definition since you're not assuming an identity when you play it.

I'd say it's still simulation, but you can obviously see the RPG elements in this part.

A bit of both. Mostly Sim, with alot of RPG elements in it.

It seems a lot more simulation than RPG. The basic mechanics of every other "The Sims" game are there, moving, talking etc, while I feel like it misses the RPG "feeling" of freedom.
