Western RPGs vs. Japanese RPGs - CheatCC

"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?"

The story is too old to be commented.

rpgs, from the western side of the world catch my attention more.

JRPGs all the way. And not the extreme Japanese JRPGs (Tales), but the standard JRGPs, you know, like FF7, Xenogears, Legend of Dragoon, Wild Arms, etc.

It depends if its based on just fantasy and not that Sci-Fi crap. I like both WRPG and JRPG. I still think The Witcher is the RPG to beat this generation.

I like both. I prefer JRPGS but there are plenty of quality WRPGS out there. I'm looking forward to Mass Effect 3 just as much as Final Fantasy 13-2.
