  • Both are very good, but I think Japanese RPGs have a slight advantage thanks to Final Fantasy, Suikoden and Vandal Hearts.

  • I guess JRPGs because there's more "fantasy" involved in them. Pretty much, the less likely it is to happen or have happened in real life, the more I like it in a video game. WRPGs are cool, but the graphics are too realistic, and sometimes the plot isn't too unreal.

    I know these aren't rpgs, but this is an example. I'd rather play Super Mario Strikers (Soccer) than Fifa because Fifa is too real of a game. You get what I mean?

  • WRPG - I like to choose my own adventure, have a choice in what happens and exl+plore as much as possible. When I play a game I enjoy the side missions just as much as the main storyline missions.

    + the more side missions you do, the easier and more fun the main missions usually are --- in the games I've played at least...

      got a favorite series or game in the genre?

    • 2mo

      I'm a biiiig Pokemon nerd (even if the games are pretty repetitive :P ) so I gotta go with that but I also really liked Fire Emblem (and it's 3:49 am here and I am almost conked out but I am like 99% sure that that's JRPG)

  • Jrpg because western stuff isn't creative. Plus most that like it are gun fanatics.

      Not really at all.
      I want to write for a living and I cannot stand the terrible writing in Japanese games.
      And no its not the Translations fault

      @Waffles731 Think what you want.

  • My favorite RPG is from Korea... Why you no include Korean games? DX

      Do you feel jrpgs have fallen out in terms of quality in these days?

    • 2mo

      Yeah because they're trying to emulate western rpgs.

  • Western. I find there's a lot more variety in the settings and characters compared to Japanese ones. I've loved some JPRGs (Skies of Arcadia and Eternal Sonata among them) but even they featured the same tropes and cliches.

  • WRPG WAY over JRPG.
    JRPG has a tendency to spend WAY... WAYY too much time over exposition.
    Some WRPG does it too.
    The cardinal sin of show , don't tell.
    I want to able to deduce clues from the mise en scène.
    Don't tell me. Let me find out.

  • I'm a fan of dark souls which I'm dissapointed it doesn't show on anything. I must say dark souls is one of the best rpgs to date. So I have a bias for that reason alone.

  • JRPG's tend to have a better story. Most western ones are mostly open sandbox where you have to make your own story for the most part.

      Why would you say so?

    • 2mo

      The best JRPGS can produce just can;t compete with Bioware, Obsidian, Blizzard, and the rest of the Western masters.
      Sorry if you are an Asianphile or weeaboo, But it's the truth. I still love the FF games, But not as much as Dragon Age or Mass Effect.

  • Both have their strong points and weak points, I am a fan of both.
