So why do people still call FFXV a JRPG? From the gameplay that I watched this game is even more action-based than the KH games.

Cause it's made in Japan.

Nah, it's supposed to have JRPG elements in it that action games don't have. Just like how you could argue Borderlands is not simply a FPS.

It's both...
Though I believe WRPG and JRPG are stupid terms.

Who ever said it was a JRPG? It's obviously an ARPG. JRPG refers to the style of the game not its origin

It's both. It's just that the term JARPG hasn't caught on. It's a JRPG because of its japanese style and whatnot. And it's an APRG because of its gameplay elements. The 2 terms are not mutually exclusive.

lol Since when JRPG = turn based ?
People say it's ARPG when they describe the battle system only nothing more nothing less

It's made in japan so it's a JRPG.
