The Tokyo Game Show 2014 Visitor Survey Report released today by the Japanese Computer Entertainment Software Association included some very interesting data on the favorite genres between attendees.
As do I, an American gamer.
and me as well, even if I'm not American :D
and so does this European/American gamer! JRPG's need to dominate like they did in the 90's and early 2000's. hehe Well, we are still getting quality RPG's but most of them need to be released out of Japan.
The thing about JRPG's in the past 5-7 years is that they have mostly become 1-3 different types of JRPG's. There used to be a wider variety and more JRPG's that appealed to more people. * That and a lot of JRPG's remain only in Japan....some of the best ones. That whole LOH series + others. We are missing out on like 30 of the best RPG's ever created. Good to see Japan still likes them though....that means they will keep being made.
I agree with the Japanese gamers JRPGs are my fav bring 'em all to North America
They probably just call them "RPGs" though right? :|

I just wanna start a study group for learning Japanese at this point, it is the only barrier that stops me from enjoying a whole lot of these amazing games. I am certain several gamers are suckin' on sour grapes because some Japanese rpg's have not been released in EU/US and we are all dying to play them. Anyone knows of a good crash course? lol
I would start a study group as well, but it would be full of weird people who tell me about their waifus and other unnecessary stuff.
People do here too. Which is why we've been begging for them.
Been a fan of of JRPGs since the PS1 days, and still a fan of them even now.
I want to see what Level-5 is up to these days. They did say that they started working on a PS4 game sometime ago. I also really need to see P5's gameplay; I hope we do before the year ends! @Fullmetalevolust, yeah I also would like to learn Japanese so I can play more JRPGs!
Can't wait for Xenoblade Chronicles, Persona 5, Tales of Zestiria and a new game from Level-5. Square-Enix could see this survey, a lot of people loves jrpgs.
In other news, Americans love hamburgers. More obvious news at 11.
Still my most favourite genre too. I'm ready for Tales of Hearts R, Persona 5, Disgaea 5, YS, Legend of Heroes, and more. Hopefully, legendary series such as Suikoden, Wild Arms, Legend of Dragoon, BoF, etc make a revival on console. Honestly, i'm really tired looking at pubs/devs saturated the market with FPS and yearly games.
Man, what I wouldn't give to see a Wild Arms on PS4. Shoot, I'd take one on Vita at this point. Just... I just want a new Wild Arms... Third game was my favorite.
Agreed, I'd love a new Wild Arms.
The Nintendo DS killed J-RPG's existence on consoles. More or less, NDS is to blame...
It's a pitty that the jrpg boon was replaced by the fps boon on the ps360 gen. I feel like a genre's orphan sometimes. Not to say that it is extinct, as I know that there are still some really good jrpg's on ps3, but they are not nearly as much popular now as they were back then. Anyhow, I've heard a yummy rumor that open-world will be the new popular kids this time, and I at least can appreciate that more than fps. But still, I really miss the jrpg fever.
