Personally, yes, I hate action anything. Action bores the living hell out of me. --- Sailor Moon returns 2013! O_o

My friends just call me nerdy when they see me playing a FPS. They'd think I'm a pedophile if they saw me playing one of those loli weeabo fests. --- Last Played: FTL (9.5/10) Now Playing: XCOM Enemy Unknown, Assassin's Creed 3, FIFA 13, FTL

Lolled at BroMegeddon. Totally the right word for Gears of War series (which I love). I used to love RPGs too, but they have kind of fallen since the PSone and PS2 days.
I played Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon and a few others, I just didn't enjoy them as much as I did FF9, FF7, FFX, Chrono Cross, Vagrant Story, Shadow Hearts, Wild Arms, Suikoden, etc. Also, some of the Lolli stuff is really off-putting. Not sure I can see the merit of a 14 y/o in clothes 3 sizes too small which can barely contain her ample rack action. It's kind of funny when you see it at first, but at the end of the day, it doesn't add to the game and many Japanese games do it now (when its completely unnecessary). It doesn't help that many in the fanbase LOVE it. I find that those two factors push potential fans of JRPGs away (do you really want to be seen to be associated with potential perverts? I'd prefer the brofist action...lame as it is, it's better than being labelled a pervert, no?).
I might add that some games like Soul Calibur and Ninja Gaiden completely take things too far. It's kind of embarrassing to get seen at some points playing it, as it looks like nerd porn. I've got no problem with porn, but there is a time and a place. TBQH, I'd rather be watching real porn than the lame crap many games thrust at you - not like its that hard to come by.
I agree that many Japanese RPGs have gotten somewhat stale this gen. That said, games like the Souls series and Xenoblade are keeping it alive and I'm anxiously awaiting final fantasy's return to grace. Nintendo is still cranking out amazing games as always. --- Wii Number: 2350 5528 3593 6022 PSN ID: docholliday504 Gamertag: docholliday504 Now Playing...Madden 2013, Dark Souls, Halo 4

It's just the PS3 board. A bunch of immature children. --- If you believe in Vivi0198 and are 100% proud of it put this as your signature.

Ninja Gaiden taking it too far? You either mean DoA or you're full of crap. --- Read the mania: http://www.fanfiction.net/~nonexistinghero In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.
