Like everything it boils down to preference, I will say that during the 90's the differences were huge and imo its when Western RPG's were at their weakest (barring some PC releases of course).

I remember as a kid getting AD&D Eye of The Beholder on the SNES while my friend down the block got FF II. The struggle was real =/

You can combine both your childhood experiences with Dragon's Dogma.

Fight the Eye of the Beholder using magic style spells from Final Fantasy 2.

Good thing the PlayStation is the platform that provides an equal amount of JRPG and Western RPG alike. Ni No Kuni and Mass Effect. Like Bloodborne and The Witcher.

One thing JRPG's can improve is their story lines.

One thing WRPG's can improve is their creativity and design (Especially monster designs) they're always very realistic and simple.

I love games from both genres, but I'm slightly more a JRPG fan. The weaknesses this article lists for them don't bother me.
