    i was on gamefaqs and all i saw was either people bashing jrpgs for no reason,people complaining about certain rpgs not coming out and bitching about jrpgs for having quote on quote loli apeal


    so do people ever actualy praise jrpgs anymore maybe its just gamefaqs thats like this i dunno but jrpgs as a ganre get alot of hate from people for some reason


    i mean the amount of hate ive seen for atelier is staggering i mean sure they aint perfect but i woudnt call them bad


    so what do you think do jrpgs get to much hate on forums or is it just the forum im on?

    Because a lot of them suck?

    They're convoluted, boring, and poorly written. There are exceptions but a lot of them are outdated fan-pandering.

    yes but heres the thing

    i can understand that but maybe we are to negetive on them and maybe we should be positive about the ganre for a chance look at the good jrpgs instead of the bad i can name a fair few worthwhile rpgs so yeah

    Because different people have different opinions?

    Also, it depends on the forum. Tons of people on GBAtemp will rave about Xenoblade Chronicles, The Tales Of franchise, the new Final Fantasy games, etc. until the cows comes home.

    a lot of them are kinda formulaic with the "chosen one world / universe is in peril and quickly rushed love interest who most likely will need rescuing by the end of the game" crap

    Cause the people that actively play them are weeaboo's and hate on other games whilst the people that hate JRPGS hate on weeaboo's

    In all seriousness, I cbf about those people.
    I play whatever I want.

    You can't really ignore bad now can you? Especially not if it is the bulk of the output, at least in a given gameplay style, of a game development powerhouse like Japan.

    1. hero who doesn't know they are a hero finds out they are needed for something.
    2. goes on epic journey to solve problem (problem with universe, spirit world etc) most of the time love interest who we are also introduced too will join hero
    3. questing insues.
    4. other individuals (if it's THAT kind of RPG) will also join with heroes quest.
    5. hero finds out love interest may also be a "chosen one" and is a key in making the "problem" happen and is captured by evil to make sure plans happen.
    6. Hero goes after evil to save girl and destroy the evil causing the problem before girl is used for evil
    7.hero destoys evil. saves girl and universe / world is safe for another day until the sequel.

    not ALL are like that..but you have to agree that there is SOME type of formula like this to JRPG's story. maybe not as rigid but it is out there

    I love pixels. I wish more games were created with pixel art than all the polygons.
