"There's been some heat recently between the fans of Japanese RPGs and fans of Western RPGs. Some gamers of the Western world have been saying that JRPGs have declined in quality over the years, and some have gone as far as to say that JRPGs aren't RPGs at all. Over in Japan, many RPG fans consider those of the Western variety to be of inferior quality. Since role-playing games largely originated in Japan, wouldn't they know best? Or is BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk right to say that JRPGs are stagnating?"
