GamingUnion.net: JRPGs have gone stale in this past generation, at least according to Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare. Certainly, many will agree to this. JRPGs have been recycling the same formulas over and over again and, while I believe BioWare's not doing any better (but that's another story), there has been very little in terms of innovation or ground-breaking advancement for the genre. When was the last time a JRPG really grabbed your interest for a reason that isn't "but it's from my favourite series?" When was the last time a JRPG on a home console did really well, both critically and commercially? It's high time JRPG devs stepped up to the plate and delivered an amazing JRPG experience. But who can do it? Why, I do believe at least one developer has the credentials to do so, no it's not Square Enix, but Platinum Games.
