So when exactly did the whole jrpg and wrpg debacle start up?

Never really heard of this kind stuff until the 8th generation of game consoles. Before, rpgs were either "traditional" or "action rpg". Who set us up the bomb?

How is the wii u "7.5"? It's either gen 7 or gen 8.

It's gen 8 but it's only slightly better so I'm only calling it 7.5.

Wi u is 8. And no the underpowerd argument does not work or wii would have been sixth. Edit: I thought tc made the comment but did not, my mistake.

The wrpg and jrpg thing started when more PC gaming company’s moved to the consoles at the end of the last gen. Until then most of what is now considered WRPG’s were only on the PC so the terms were invented to distinguish the two styles it got high jacked by troll’s and the rest is history.

Who do you think started it? The same generation of gamers that set up a Petition on the White House website to have a game banned because the character has short dark hair and a new coat.
