Ni No Kuni is the highest rated and overall BEST JRPG this gen

Souls are unbareably boring, not for me I guess.

Also how on earth can you hate on a game you haven't played based on it's style, also it's Studio Ghibli.....how can you hate that?

JRPG though called japanese is a refenerce to the game play not the place it was made. Thought that was obvious.

It's definitely not obvious.

To everyone saying Dark souls / Demon Souls plays like a WRPG, it doesn't follow the full wrpg side of things, did you know Dark Souls is only following the style Kings Field had? This was far before anyone even termed the phrase wrpg. Kings Field to this day still remains one of my favorites due to it's exploration. The graphics were pretty horrible, the story was almost non existent but the combat and exploration was amazing. They have stuck to that style for a while and perhaps even started it before any western developer even got to it. So if anything you might even say wrpg's copy kings field's formula which is from the same developer that makes dark souls.

So lets just drop the "dark souls isn't a jrpg because of how it plays" when they perhaps invented that formula that wrpg's use. I may be wrong, but I know they have been using it for over 15 years now.


Ultima called. It wants its 30 years old crown back.

Demon's Souls/Dark Souls isn't even a JRPG in the slightest.


But, wait, please! Don't give so many reasons at once! We are barely able to process them at the rate you're throwing them at us!

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.


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


Sure. Gameplay is irrelevant to a genre category.

He's clearly not using the term as a genre classification. Lots of people don't. Because it's a really stupid name for a genre.

I know Ni No Kuni is very good. But I still think Xenoblade is the RPG of the generation. Once I get a PS3, I'm getting it right away!
