The "souls" games, while good, are not RPGs. Unless, of course, anything with an inventory is counted as an RPG.


Then NNK isn't an RPG either.

I always get a laugh when people put demons/dark souls in the same category as jrpgs. Sure they are rpgs from japan but they are base around western rpgs. It's just silly to put them in the same category as final fantasy or persona games. If anything demons/dark souls goes to show how much jrpgs are bad cause it had to play like a western rpg to be good.

The term is console style rpg... Not JRPG.

JRPG, RPGs developed in Japan, it's that simple. Actual gameplay is irrelevant

What makes it so special is that it combines an epic quest, interesting cast, and originality.

Can we stop using JRPG as a genre?
