Anybody else pissed that we have been robbed of turn based JRPGs on Playstation?

It's cool to reject everything and then complain when there's nothing left.

Thank Microsoft (for trying to steal the market in 2006 before the PS3 came out)
HD gaming (which has made it too expensive for smaller Japanese companies to compete against the big guys), game companies dissolving, oversaturation of FPS, Xenophobia, key creators leaving and lack of new talent, Westernization, and popularity of handhelds...

Protip: when people mention turn based JRPG, they mean something like Xenogears.

Actually most people mean both when they're talking about JRPGs. I don't blame you though.
It's not something I'd expect a casual gamer like you to know.

Why would anybody be pissed about the lack of turn based JRPG's on PS3?? LOL. What is it, 1997 again? Thankfully, JRPG's are pretty much dead on consoles.Turn based ones sucked even when they were relevant.

Why doesn't Nintendo make 8-bit games anymore? 8-bit games put Nintendo on the map. The Nintendo brand has stabbed fans of 8-bit games in the back by moving on to things like 3D graphics and optical media instead of cartridges and controllers with 2 buttons.

No, kid. If it were so, then games like Disgaea, FF Tactics, Tactics Ogre, Valkyria Chronicles, Jeanne D'Arc would not be in the subgenre, SRPG. Subgenre SRPG exists for a reason.

I have 3 Demon's Souls platinum trophies, Dark Souls plat, and am currently playing Dishonored on the highest difficulty with no kills and no waypoints.

I do not play casual games, btw. No gimmicks or watered down garbage or garbage shooters or anything like that.

Lost Odyssey came out in what, 2009? And that is the best JRPG this gen by a long shot, and that is turn based. So, your point is nothing.

I'm kind of with the TC even though I hate his guts personally.

Hironobu Sakaguchi has this undying hatred for the PlayStation brand and the man who made it what it is, so he's basically jumping the puddle and releasing his games for everything BUT the PS. Meanwhile, Namco is being stupid (and hating money) and refusing to release Tales of Vesperia for the PS3 in America, all because Microsoft gave them bribes to keep it exclusive.

**** this industry.

Sorry, trophy *****/casual.
Playing a couple difficult games doesn't keep you from being a casual. You have little to no experience.
You've barely played any games.

So sad that I speak up for all of us who love turn based games, and you still despise me for speaking out for you and everyone else who love this subgenre.

Not that speaking out about it has done any good so far, but if you have a better idea, how to reach video game devs directly and make a direct impact, I would love to know how.
