Not only does Pokemon outsell FF by a large margin, but Skyrim also outsold FFXIII, as did Fallout 3.
Gamefaqs has taught us that academic fields like literature don't exist because of teenagers that say "well that's just your opinion and I disagree."

Pokemon has been that way because of the anime.

I literally hear folks saying Pokemon isn't a JRPG.

Wow

Well as far as influencing the genre as a whole, Pokemon is pretty insignificant.

This right here.

My friend said he hated RPG's. I told him you played Pokemon and then he was like that was different.

FF7 basically carried the genre on its back.

What about them? Please understand that we're not all closed-minded like BkzIzu is.

I feel like people stop caring about what the main character looks like when they see a blur of explosions, guns, swords, teleport spam, and general awesome.

Anyone who denies this game of the title of manliness doesn't deserve his own manhood.
You can beat 'em up by any means or blow them all to SMITHEREENS, a favorite of this sentient machine!

I'd have to agree. Noctis and Prompto may not look like the manliest characters, but that gameplay trailer was incredibly masculine/manly.

Isn't FF still the biggest selling JRPG in the west? I don't think that's going to changing anytime soon.


RPG period


pokemon


Most people don't consider Pokemon a JRPG so I didn't say Pokemon.

As I've stated before, Final Fantasy is still one of the most successful franchises of all time, and it's number 7 in terms of sales, only behind stuff like Tetris, Mario, Pokemon, Call of Duty, The Sims, and something else I forgot. And even then you can take out Tetris since its not really popular at all anymore, so it's pretty much number 6.

Final Fantasy is the most popular RPG series in the world. Unless you count Pokemon.

The only Vita games really worth getting: Gravity Rush & P4G

lol even in Square Enix's "The Making of Lightning Returns" video, they call Final Fantasy the most successful role-playing franchise in the history of video games.
