Dark Souls is, by definition, a Japanese RPG.

What you're thinking of is "JRPG", not Japanese RPG.

The OP clearly said "Japanese RPG", not "JRPG".


Right, he didn't say JRPG, he just said what the J in JRPG stands for followed by RPG. That totally isn't unclear about what he meant. Totally. Yup, no chance that it could be misunderstood. Yup.

What you're referring to is Japanese-style RPG's, otherwise labelled "JRPG".

What the OP is referring to is actual Japanese RPG's.

Learn the difference.

P.S. Even the "JRPG" style you're referring to doesn't have a clear definition. There are many different styles of Japanese RPG's, some of which overlap with Western RPG's, so which particular style do you mean?

lol

JRPG=Japanese Role playing game=Japanese RPG

Granted there is a distinction between the original sense (Japanese RPG) and the modern sense (rpg made inthe style of JRPG's

But to say a Japanese RPG=!JRPG is ridiculous.

There are two different ways of interpreting the term "JRPG":

1. An actual Japanese RPG

2. A so-called Japanese-style RPG

If the OP said "JRPG", then it could be confused for one or the other. However, the OP specifically stated "Japanese RPG", therefore there shouldn't be any room for confusion to begin with.

I meant RPGs made by Japanese developers, so not necessarily turn based RPGs.


Might want to keep in mind Japanese made RPG and Japanese RPG mean totally different things next time.


No they don't, stop spreading this stupid crap.

What you are thinking of is a traditional RPG(i.e. following the tradition that evolved from Wizardy to Dragon Quest to the modern games you are thinking of now). Yes, it was popularized with Japanese games, but it was established in the west.

JRPG = RPG made in Japan.

Also, Chess is a game of skill much like all gameplay only video games. So it is pretty mindless if you think about it.-mtjormitch

Septerra core was just released on Steam (Get the GOG version, its more up to date) but its not a JRPG, only styled like a JRPG.

How about you nerds stop with this useless argument and start counting RPGs?

Am I missing anything?


Nope. I own every Japanese game on Steam, and you just listed all of the RPGs.

I guess there's FFXI if you're counting MMOs, but other than that, no.


done and done.
