T/F: Jrpg fans "Ive played a 1 hour of GTA and it was boring and not good"

I play any games and genres except GTA. I can handle Red Dead Redemption, but GTA is pretty dumb IMO.

if you don't play this game, you ARE part of the f***ing problem.

It's because Jrpgs hold your hand throughout the entire experience whereas something like GTA allows you to go about as you please.

Kind I like taking a guided tour vs. wandering around on your own.


Didn't get this vibe with Xenogears which is one of if not the most revered JRPG this gen

They should admit that they don't like GTA. It's as simple as that.

For instance, I don't like soccer games (brazilian here). I don't like Fifa 2013. Do I say it is a bad game? Of course not.

Now in the other hand I have a thing with SRPGs, no matter how grindy or silly they are. I like Disgaea. Do I go all willy nilly telling everyone that it is a good game and they should try it? Of course not, I realize it's a mediocre game that I just happen to like.

JRPG fans are generally confused by open world games, as they're often used to having the game play itself for them and the "story" spelled out for them, even though most JRPGs don't give much consideration to story in the first place. Games such as GTA don't appeal to JRPG fans because they expect too much from the player, and the story may go above their heads.

I hate it when people here very casually pass off sports games like FIFA, NHL. NBA2K, Madden etc. just because they are sports games. There have been times this gen where I've had more fun and spent more time playing sports games then what people here would consider actual games.

I buy most yearly installments of sports games and they have been the solid anchor to consoles this gen, not the exclusives, time and again.

JRPG fan here and I found GTAIV to be a good, if somewhat sobering, experience. It was far from the days of GTA III though, once the story was over I was basicaly done.

In before regionally challenged rant.


There wouldn't be a regionally challenged rant if it weren't for the regionally challenged and their abnormal regional mentality.

You wouldn't understand that because of the abnormal regional mentality though.

I know you're looking for more material to mark. There's nothing the regionally challenged dislike more than having their agenda questioned especially when they know it's weaker than a wet paper bag.

False. I've played Vice city, San Andreas, GTA 3 and GTA 4. Didn't really like them that much. For my open world crime needs there is Saints Row. A game where I can use a sewage truck to decorate the city. And I'm a JRPG fan.
