You seem confused on what the topic at hand is about.


This topic is about JRPGs, I'm asking you why you think those games are JRPGs.


Why do you think those games aren't JRPGs?


I already explained, they don't have the Elements required to be a JRPG, but they are Action RPGs.


So, in your opinion, that's what's required for them to be JRPGs. I think you're incorrect.

What makes a Role Playing Game:
The ability to choose how you want to play

Demon/Dark Souls allow you to do this (I can't speak for Dragon's Dogma). You can't change the definition of a Role Playing Game, a definition that has been around since D&D.


The fact that Dark Souls is a role-playing game is obvious, however, the term JRPG refers to a particular style of RPG. It references an era in which pretty much 100% of console RPGs were JRPGs, namely the NES, SNES, PS1, and PS2 time period. I think its difficult to apply this terminology to this generation of games, as genres are becoming quite blurry, and there are very few games that still follow the traditional JRPG format.


The terminology itself is flawed as it suggests that any RPG made in Japan is a JRPG, this didn't cause problems back in the day, because most console RPGs were made in Japan, but perhaps we should refer to JRPGs as CJRPGs (classic) instead. Like it or not, JRPGs are no longer the bulk of console RPGs, and it seems as though that era is a thing of the past.

Oh don't get me wrong. I was a fan of JRPGs on the PS2 but I'm not now. The only ones I like now are Demon's/Dark souls. I agree that it does need to be clarified about CJRPGs because that would mean that the classic JRPG would be exactly as I described.
