why do people associate the power of hope, love, and friendship with JRPGs?

Masterchief uses the power of energy shields and plasma rifles.
Marcus, uses the power of chainsaws
Drake uses the power of acrobatics
Kratos is just an actually tough guy
Shooter guy uses the power of automatic weapons and kill streaks


I dunno why?

I've never actually seen a game do this outside of Kingdom Hearts.

Because of the way it's implemented.

RPGs tend to use it in the most corny, silly, sickeningly embarrassing way they possibly can. They've even been known to make fun of the way they themselves use it.

Other games that use it, you don't even realize they did, because it's use is so subtle, or it's masked from view by another theme. (Like with Kratos in GoW on many occassions) (NOT the ending of GoW 3, that's more like a JRPG's implementation, there are other examples that are less obvious and more profound)

Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.

Western games pretty much are "Kill them all until they are dead."

I think in a personal opinion from me..it might have to do with the fact they like to focus on positive emotions...(though I wish they tone it down in more subtle ways).
