Please Stop Asking If JRPGs Are Making A Comeback

Kotaku - Every once in a while, someone must stand up and ask the Essential Question Of Our Time: are JRPGs dead?

Guess they forgot about ni no kuni which kotaku hyped so much about

There are many great JRPGs on Wii & 3DS.

Love Ni no Kuni but I don't think that's the point they're making. They're arguing that JRPG will never return to the apex that it rose to before the post PS3/Xbox 360 era. The reasoning is pretty simple, video games used to be a pretty niche culture that's not been expanded to a much more mainstream audience. It only makes sense that JRPGs would only be a fraction of that market, similar to anime or manga.

Actually I'll keep asking, and theres nothing Kotaku is can do about it!

But yea, I see wat they're saying... Jrpgs are alive... But there was an undeniable dry spell

We keep expecting them to come back, but they never do. We'll stop asking the question, when they ACTUALLY come back!
