Each gen's leading system seller won because of its quality and quantity of RPGs

SNES
PS1
PS2
DS
3DS currently wrecking the competition

So why don't developers make RPGs anymore?

Can't they just forego the fancy graphics and stick a ton of content in their instead, using PS2-level graphics? Everyone would win, except graphics whores, but nobody cares about them. Lower development costs + more content = happy gamers and happy developers.

Where do you live again? Please tell me cause I wanna join. All I hear about from people is multiplayer this and multiplayer that, the last of us, 1080p, fps, blah blah blah blah blah.

Anyways I agree 1000000% I couldn't even imagine what a Final Fantasy game from the ps1 era could be. Something better than FFIX would just be mind blowing. There are so many timeless classics.

What I wanna know is why everyone abandoned turn based, I love it! When you have one character left and have to revive and attack and magic and...anyways it's fun.

Square said they might look into it again...I have as much faith in that as this the this board and the ps4 board becoming friends haha.

Wish most gamers are like you TC

But then again it's the dudebros who are sustaining the gaming industry with their COD & BF4

It is the graphic whores who are buying 2nd son & MGSV, providing financial support for brojima & 1st party devs

I love RPG, wish there are more for last gen or even next gen. But without other games sustaining the industry no company can ever make an rpg

It's boring but all rpg fans have to do is wait
Kingdoms under fire 2
Shadow of mordor
Dragon age 3 inquisition
Lords of the fallen
Bound by flame
Witcher 3

Right now dark souls 2 & south park sot is as good as it gets, but they're not bad titles

The problem with of 360 is that its JRPGs didn't stay exclusive moreover, PS3 got enhanced versions.

There's definitely a huge market for jrpgs and some truth to this. What tips the favor in one direction or the other, is one will have jrpgs to cater to those that want them and it'll sell more consoles. Face it, both consoles will have their cod and bf and be on equal terms, but one particular console fails in japan.

Some of us grew up on sports and racing, those games have always gotten better with graphics, animation. I refuse to go backwards in that category, look at that pile of garbage Rbi baseball 14. CGI is ruining gaming, they spend more time making cgi to tell a story then letting a game tell it.
