Make your voice heard!
I like them both. A hybrid is fine too.
frig i meant to say i love both styles
(though i didn't like tactics to much)
I tend to slide off into the JRPG side, but I do go for SRPGs once in a while (Tactics Ogre!)
Jap for me!
I love 'em both
It's offending to say jap, you can use a word like JP or JPN.
How about just Pan?
SRPGs are more challenging.
And Disgaea + FFT are the two best game stories ever.
But pokemon was a JRPG and it rocks, so I say tie.
Fine I Personally prefer Pan pizzas... I mean RPG's
I love both, and I play both....
i love them both, but i guess you can say that i lean more towards SRPGs
I burnt myself out on RPG's of any kind way back in the C64 days. Anymore, when I try to play them, I just get bored, or I'll start playing them for awhile and then loathe booting it up again after playing a session or two. This happened to me with Zelda, the FF games and most of the other RPG offerings on the DS. In fact, I think Eragon was the only RPG (and that was an action RPG) I ever played all the way through on the DS.
I played EVERY Gold Box Edition D&D RPG for the C64, mapping out the dungeons on graph paper. Those were SRPG's. I played all the Questron's, the Phantasie's, touched into Bard's Tale, but couldn't get into it.....there was one from Epyx called Legend of Blacksilver that I enjoyed. Those were more traditional RPG's. There was an odd one called King's Bounty that I liked. There was even this one pretty cool one call Space Rogue that was loads of fun (fly through space like Elite, then land on planets and explore around like a regular RPG....it was sweet). I'm sure there at least a dozen more I've forgotten. I finished ALL of them too.
But today.....they just don't have the appeal they once did for me. Maybe it's the whole Japanese craze (super-deformed characters) that I just can't get into, I don't know, but the last RPG I really enjoyed was FF7. They just all seem like I've been-there-done-that or they bore me with blah-blah story that I don't care about and only bother with to find out where to go or what to do next. Possibly, it's the "pirate syndrome", maybe it's the fact that I generally just don't have the time to play a long drawn-out epic these days and by the time I get around to loading it back up, I can't remember what I was doing in it, or it might even be middle-age crisis hitting me or just a generation gap in the style that has become popular these days. I tend to prefer a nice shoot'em-up, or otherwise action-packed games now. Games such as Geometry Wars, Speed Racer, EBA, Bleach and the old-school arcade compilations are among my favorites on the DS now. If they re-made the old RPG's I used to love on the C64, with improved graphics and an American look to them, as opposed to that super-deformed Japanese style, I could probably get back into them.
So, when it comes to SRPG's vs. traditional RPG's, I really have no preference. The game just has to hold my interest and lately RPG's just don't seem to do that anymore.
But then, as I've always said, I have a very different taste in games than just about anyone I know. Probably has something to do with the fact that I've played so many games in my life and the fact that I'm 40.
I'm a fan of strategy RPGs
"love" is too strong a word for me to use but I certainly have enjoyed playing many of both types of RPGs.
SRPG, like Fire Emblem
I vote for JRPGs. I like them both, but I've got more fun from traditional RPGs like Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger and such than from SRPGs. I've loved to death FFTactics Advance, though...
Its a bit tough to decide. The story on SRPG's tend to be better but the game itself gets repeptitve quickly unless its exceptionally good (Disgaea) but Jrpg's tend to experiment a bit (FF12 comes to mind) with either battle systems or levelling and that keeps things interesting.
I'd have to go with Jrpg's though simply becuase I played more of them and really enjoy them.
SRPGs bore me to death!
Both genres are fine with me. I like SRPGs as much as JRPGs, though as to which one I like better...naaaaaah.
