Seriously, how is Dark Souls NOT a Jrpg?

JARPG


^ I could actually go for that classification, because it is a NEW one.
Basically you are saying that it is a Japanese Action RPG...

It is a different classification than JRPG, which is genre specific to games like Final Fantasy and Star Ocean, yet still classifies it as an Action game, but still acknowledges the Japanese flair.
So I could accept that.

This thread has really illustrated to me how senseless all this micro-classification semantics nonsense is.

The J refers to the style. Dark Souls is NOT a Japanese style RPG, it's a Western Style RPG (despite its origin). Or to ignore this stupid and tired debate it is an Action RPG.

^ You should be more careful...your troll side is showing.
Just because you consider it a "JRPG" doesn't make it so.
Even the Developers themselves say that it's an ARPG, and have even stated that they dislike the genre of JRPG's.

Dark Souls IS a JRPG, and not because it was made in Japan but by the style.

Dark Souls uses a vague style of storytelling and character presentation, similar to JRPG's. I know many of you are familiar with the whole linear save the world plot in JRPG's but that's just bias, there are plenty of lesser known series that are NOT Final Fantasy that uses a vague non linear structure. If those games are classified as JRPG's, so is Dark Souls.

Just look at the lore and world setup and you can clearly see similarities between it and other JRPG's.

So King's Field is also a JRPG?
