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?
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.

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. --- He who stumbles around in darkness with a stick is blind. But he who... sticks out in darkness... is... fluorescent! - Brother Silence
