PostSubject: JRPG vs. WRPG   Sat Aug 08, 2009 3:46 pm

If you go on the Gamespot forums they have a topic like this, but I want to know your opinions. For those of you who don't know, JRPG stands for Japanese RPG and WRPG stands for Western RPG.

Examples of JRPG's

Final Fantasy
Pokemon
Kingdom Hearts
Dragon Quest
Etc...

Examples of WRPG's

The Elder Scrolls
Fallout
Fable
World of Warcraft
etc...

I personally favor WRPG's. The original Fallout was actually the first RPG I ever played and I loved it. That doesn't mean I don't like Pokemon though and a few other JRPG's. What kind of RPG's do you favor?

Well I voted JRPGs because I actually don't really play RPGs much aside from Pokémon, and occasionally Final Fantasy. RPGs just aren't really my thing I guess, but if I could choose an RPG to play, I can 90% guarantee it would be Japanese.

Definately JRPG, I play a lot of pokemon and Mother 1, 2, and 3. Im not sure if you want to count Mario for Western or Japanese but i play a lot of that too. There just overall better games in my Opinion

Yeah, the Mario RPG games are considered JRPG's, in fact they are some of my favorite JRPG's (Paper Mario, Mario and Luigi, Super Mario RPG).

That's like backwards of what I think sort of, I don't like a lot of JRPG's cause of some of their awful storylines or extremely unlikeable characters, I always tend to like the characters in WRPG's though (cause you can make your own ^^) and the storylines in a lot of them are pretty great cause you actually have an impact on them, but that's just my opinion.

Definitely JRPGs. WRPGs just dont seem like they put as much work into their games as JRPGs do.

JRPG's ftw.
I prefer JRPG's for many reasons..
- Greater Storylines
- More challenge
- Awesome voice acting [in original japanese, the dubs usually suck, though]
- Amazing Soundtracks
- Lots of Longevity
Honestly, I could go on.
The only real WRPG's that I've really enjoyed are Fable 2 and Fallout 3..

I would have to say Japanese even though Fable and its sequel are amazing. However, there are many more cool Japanese RPGs than Western...

I tend to find JRPG's to be boring and linear. The characters just seem to be cheep ripoffs from those of other games. Though I prefer a good fighter or shooter over an RPG, regardless of its origin.
