Seeing as Fallout 2 is one of my favorite games and in terms of RPGs I've played more "western" ones. (I see them both as RPGs, I don't care where they were made) I'd have to go with the Western ones. I'd miss JRPGs though, cause it would mean less RPGs of any kind to play.
wRPG's and if you talked to me like maybe 6-7 years ago, I'd have told you JRPG's.
I'm at a point where I've seen it all, heard it all. played it all before. So what I'm looking for is just a solid gameplay experience to where i can build my characters, interact with characters and explore the game world.
JRPG is my most favorite genre, so it's an easy choice to make. The Tales series is my favorite series of all times, followed closely by the SMT series (and all of its spin-off's), and I almost never play any WRPGs. So it's JRPGs for me.
