JRPGs are deprecated and have no place in modern gaming

The main draw of JRPGs were the ability to draw great narratives that were not possible with other genres do to hardware limitations. The turn based battle system that is common in most JRPGs is also ancient game design.

JRPGs are so dated that they should no longer be a part of modern gaming.

Well, that's just like... your opinion, man.

Dated how? In that they worked back then and still work today?

Or just because you don't like those mechanics?

JRPGs shifted to handhelds where gamers appreciate them more.

You realize not every JRPG has a turn based combat system. Hence demon souls/dark souls.

That word does not mean what you think it means.

...And apparently none of the other posters here picked up on that. For shame!

"And you see where that can lead you, into what mistakes and absurdities, when you are dealing with a man like Arsene Lupin."

Almost every time I see a topic made by the TC, I can't help but think "no wonder his wife beats him."
