Why are JRPGs so damn boring?

I am always just waiting through long cut scenes and terrible scripts and the menu based combat of JRPGs just feels so outdated. Black Ops II on the other hand has you engaged the entire time, combat is awesome and so is the shooting. it also has fun multiplier. I find western shooters a lot more fun than JRPGs. The west knows how to make video games and Japan is still struggling to figure out how the west is so awesome.

Most likely. People these days have the attention span of a gnat.

I'm currently playing Shadow Hearts 3 ("From the New World") right now, and I just found out that the developers of this game were involved in Lost Odyssey too.


That's why I noticed so many similarities. The "ring" system. The camera panning of characters while waiting for your next turn. The CGI cutscenes presentation. The FF10 graphics and animation. The map system and walking over static backgrounds. The overall feel.


I had no idea. Maybe that's why it's so good. I'm currently enjoying it.
