They're too broad of a set of categories. There's so many little subsets within those two categories.

Like, I don't enjoy TRPGs or RPGs like Ar Tonelico, Cross Edge, HDN, or most of the Atelier Series, but I absolutely love stuff like Eternal Sonta, Ni No Kuni, Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, and the Ys Series. They're all JRPGs though.

Same deal with WRPGs, there's a number of subsets within the category that I like, and a number that I don't.

I suppose I like more styles in the JRPG category than I do in the WRPG category though.
I kill because I'm weak. Too weak to incapacitate an aggressor without killing them. Killing is easy. Not having to fight is hard.

Mandatory jRPGs and wRPGs are not a genre, they're RPGs that are made in Japan/Western world. They are prone to having similiar themes and mechanics but are not limited to them ie Demons Souls plays like a wRPG but is in fact made in Japan therefore is technically a jRPG.

I like older RPGs from both places for the most part though I prefer modern RPGs made in Japan over RPGs made in the West.

Simple fact of the matter is that there are FAR more RPGs made by Japanese or Eastern Developers than there are made by Western Developers.

Simple numbers game.

JRPG, but I loved Dragon Age Origins and Deus Ex: HR and somewhat liked Mass Effect 2.

Wasn't the same poll posted a week or two ago by a different person?
All PS3 owners should boycott Bethesda.

I like RPG's.

I don't care if it is an Action RPG, a Strategy RPG, a PC RPG, a Console RPG, or what. I like RPG's. I may not like specific ones, but in general, I like RPG's.

I don't have a favorite. And until the whole issue of whether JRPG and WRPG refer to the "style" or the game's "country of origin" is resolved, I would encourage people not to confuse everyone else by using those two terms.
