I say "Japanese Origin" because JRPG is its own genre now apparently and Dragon's Dogma and D. Souls are apparently not JRPGs as a result.


Before you say things like "Where's mah Enchanted Ahms!" I went down the list on Metacritic and grabbed the ones closest to the top.


I also left out non-RPGs like Folklore and Valkyria Chronicles.

'doh...

I forgot that one.

And for some reason it's not under the RPG genre on Metacritic...

What's up with that?

Voted for the Souls games but I have trouble calling them RPGs. When you think about it, if Demon/Dark Souls are RPGs then shouldn't Ninja Gaiden and God of War be RPGs as well?

For more traditional RPGs from Japan I'd vote Tales of Graces F, though Ni No Kuni might change that in the next week.

Wait, have you played Demon/Dark Souls?


There is definitely a level of character growth there indicative of an RPG. While it's not required to beat the game, it certainly makes things much easier.

While NG and GoW have RPG Elements, you can't spend 4 hours grinding souls to make a boss easier.

It's not an RPG.

It's a turn based strategy game.

Apparently games with stats and a level up system aren't RPGs and apparently Dragon's Dogma is one despite Capcom explicitly stating it's not.
