The fact that they're even discussing this speaks of a deep bias.

You bet your ass they are, now go back to playing your generic brown and bloom fps games.

The answer is Yes, JRPGS (in regards to the PS brand) are (or rather were) a fundamental part of previous iteration's of PlayStation. They are what the PS3 severely lacked this gen, and a genre which many prefer on consoles. It's too late for JRPGS to set precedence for the PS3, hopefully JRPG developers return to developing for consoles. (i.e. PS4.)

@Canary & @BuffMordecai: If you watch the video, they are actually fans of the genre.
