The Reason as to why JRPGs are in their current state

#171ExodiverPosted 2/5/2013 11:20:20 PM
agrees with Lucilli....don't forget, gamefaqs is pretty much american based.

and besides, who in this blue earth think JRPG is on a decline? most people only sees it from American perspectives, which is pretty much western. while all around the world like Asia, South America, japanese games are generally more popular, especially in asia. Problem is, in the past there were too many piracy going on in these regions which makes the industry suffers, while the western kids still bought their original western games.
And it's pretty understandable since gaming is a quite expensive hobby while most develping countries can't really afford original copies.

Hopefully this issue can be fixed in the future, where legal gaming can be affordable for many more people.

Nope, absolutely not.

Is there a reason you believe that traditional RPGs are being passed up because of moe/loli games?


Well, just look at the stuff NISA/Aksys chooses to localize!


Just because these games exist doesn't mean they have anything to do with the relative lack of traditional ones though.

That's like saying there is less traditional JRPGs because Nintendo chooses to localize more SRPGs and Pokemon games.


So then why are *these* types of games being chosen to localize instead of the more traditional ones on handhelds?


Which traditional ones were passed up on handhelds?

Final Promise Story is the only traditional RPG(by your standards) that those companies would be able publish. Square and Namco Bandai don't usually go to other companies for publishing.

Tales of the Abyss got a 3DS port too, and there's reason to believe the portable exclusivess(at least the DS one) may be coming over too.

What about Sol Trigger? That's not by Square or Bamco! The Kiseki or Falcom games wouldn't have gotten localized either if it weren't for XSEED.

Let's face it, most of the publishers are just stupid this gen.

Correct.

This should just be /thread.

Seriously, at this point, it is just EurAsianNotAGirl flapping her mouth because she wants attention.

I C Whut U DId Thar. Believe me, I am a girl but then again why should I have to prove it to you? Believe what you want.

And sorry as a JRPG gamer I want to play more QUALITY JRPGS this gen. Sorry, that the slim pickings aren't enough. What? Can you not handle that I bashed your favorite publishers? Oh go BAWWWWWW some moar! Companies exist to service the customers, if the customers aren't getting what they want than that leaves the company open to criticism.

Sol Trigger is Sci-Fi, and therefore doesn't meet your criteria. Also, that just came out in October for PSP, which is now more or less a dead system outside of Japan. I wouldn't expect to see any more PSP games getting released(at least not by physical distribution).

I don't think NIS or Aksys has localized any Imageepoch games. Maybe the companies just don't want to do business with each other.

Yes it does, like I said a traditional JRPG takes place in either a medieval or FANTASY world. Fantasy includes Sci-Fi, it just shouldn't take place in the modern/current world.

And yeah, they don't because they only localize animu loli games, apparently they don't care about the serious gamers.
