I find Monster Hunter to be too much like an offline World of Warcraft. The series has never appealed to me.

Thing about JRPGs is that they don't seem to have any normal human beings.


WRPGs don't seem to have any creativity in their character designs or settings....

similar issue on the flipside

No normal human beings was an issue? Always considered that to be one of their biggest strengths. A bunch of human minds in supernatural worlds. Where they don't need to wear traditional armor because perhaps their skin is already hard as steel. Or those crazy buckles/pants have supernatural elements that could outperform even our best traditional armor. Tech so advanced that it has function and style.

also, Tales series has plenty of character that look normal
Sheena, Lloyd, Genius, Zelos, Yuri, Tear, Jade Curtis, Hisui, Kohak, Alvin, Rowen, Dio, Mel, Cress, Claus, Farah, Chloe, and possibly many more...

End of Eternity has normal looking characters too.

Persona?

Valkyrie Profile?

Radiata Stories

i'm pretty sure Trusty Bell has fairly normal wear as well.

How come nobody wears anything functional in JRPGs like armor?


Tons of JRPG characters wear armor.

Just because it may not look functional at first glance doesn't mean it isn't.

I think anime style characters are too how should I put this...

"clean" looking. The way they dress too is typically just too rediculous. How come nobody wears anything functional in JRPGs like armor? Instead they wear schoolgirl uniforms, guys have all these pointless buckles and baloon pants I just can't stand it.

Thing about JRPGs is that they don't seem to have any normal human beings.


There's a reason we refer to them as Jrpgs....key letter being J.

Dark souls and all those, btw, not jrpgs.

Aside from Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, and Dragon's Dogman. I've already played those and I do like them.

What I don't like is the anime art style as well as cliched anime stories.

Are there any JRPGs that don't have anime sutff in them?
