How come guns always suck in Jrpg's and swords are usually stupidly impractical?

I'd think Phantasy Star begs to differ. Guns can sometimes hit whole groups of guys at once, swords are one of the best hit-to-damage ratio weapons, the main characters usually use swords (and thus use the "best weapon available" of Elsydion,) and guns can only be used by one or two characters.


Of course, I just might be a bit biased in that opinion. I like guns, swords, AND Phantasy Star.

Disgaea begs to differ. Aside from the 1 über sword in every game most aren't all that impractical, and guns are pretty much OP

I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

Theirs more JRPGs than just FF7 :/

And when an actual 6 foot claymore weighs about 30lbs. Up scaling a bit doesn't seem that impractical.

What? Huh? I'm talking Phantasy Star 1-4, not PSO and PSU's "swords" which should technically be labelled greatswords, as they're two-handers.

a claymore may be six feet long but it's not 3 feet wide and half a foot thick
