Demon's/Dark Souls and Dragon's Dogma have been ***** slapping the 3-Bs, 3-stooges, the so-called premier Western RPG makers; Bethesda/Bioware/Blizzard, not one of these developers know how to make RPG with good mechanic

and yet WRPG fanboys only want to make fun of loli JRPG, they don't dare talk about the Souls and Dogma games

why?

Because those 3 (J)RPGs you mentioned borrowed heavily from WRPGs.

The bias is strong with this one.

Those games have a more western style despite being made in Japan. There is a debate on whether those games are JRPGS because they're made in Japan or Wrpgs because of their style

Depends on how they're using the term and defining what is a J or W game. I personally see WRPGs as more D&D-style affairs, where stats and skills apply outside of combat heavily. In JRPGs, typically all stats and skills apply exclusively to the battle system - having 300 STR won't make your attempt to intimidate Person X any better or worse.

JRPG doesn't stand for Japanese RPG, it stands for Japanese-style RPG. The Souls games are WRPGs... Western-style RPGs. Where they're developed means absolutely nothing.

Because they're not typical JRPG's.

Just like King's Field, this series was inspired by european folklore and western styled RPGs.

It's completely different to Atelier, Ni no Kuni, Star Ocean and the like. And it's most similar to games like Drakan, Baldur's Gate, Diablo.

This, King's Field and Shadow Tower are W-Rpgs.

Because they are great games that were influenced by WRPGs.
