If you could only play one, would you pick JRPGs or Western RPGs?

So hypothetically speaking, if you could only play one genre of RPG (past, present and future), which would you pick?

JRPGs - Tales, Final Fantasy, Persona, etc.


Western RPGs - Skyrim, Mass Effect, Fallout, etc.

Personally, I'd probably have to go with JRPGs... but its a tough call.

JRPGs. The look of WRPGs doesn't appeal to me at all. It's why I haven't been tempted to play the likes of Mass Effect, Dragon Age, etc.

Ask this on a jrpg game board, odds are you're going to get mostly JRPG fans. And that goes for me too JRPGs all the way

Tales is my favorite series so JRPGs.

Tough call.

I play both, but I'd probably go with JRPGs, simply because there's more of 'em.

Plus, this gen I only really liked The Witcher series, New Vegas and DA:O.

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.

I honestly have yet to play a WRPG that can keep my attention for more than a day of 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.
