Thread title. Here are my reasons (None are related unless specified): 1) You forget to save for a few hours and end up dying, which takes you backwards nearly a whole three dungeons. 2) Second playthroughs are too easy because of the bonuses you get with New Game + and because you know the whole game at that point. 3) Random battles often become tedious and boring. 4) If it's voiced, it probably has bad English voice actors. 5) Often times, the story is very stereotypical and not compelling enough to make you want to finish the game. 6) Number 1 happens and all of the cutscenes you've already seen aren't able to be skipped. 7) All the RPGs you want to play are Japan-only. 8) Number 7 happens and the RPG is for a region-locked console. 9) The game is a sequel to a Japan-only game nobody in the US has heard of, and incorporates things from the previous game that aren't explained for the US audience. 10) The game is a remake of another game, and changes the game from an RPG to an Action-RPG.
