This may sound stupid but what differentiates the JRPG?

I always see people getting triggered over this term I'm not sure why.
I mean I can understand games like Mass Effect being developed by western devs only but I hardly think that's a reason to make to categories of a genre.
It's not like we say WPlatformers

>> No.3744813


to tell you the truth is hard to define a JRPG. But usually the concepts most people use are: turn based combat, linear history, parties of 3-6 members, some fantasy setting usually a fairy one. But then faggots will come and tell you "BUT THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR DOESNT HAVE 1-2 THINGS YOU MENTIONED" and you will realize that idiot is full of shit.

I think the biggest genre difference between JRPG's and WRPG's is customisability: JRPG's tend to be quite fixed in terms of characters and storylines (at most, you might have a couple of different endings or something like that), whereas WRPG's give you more options and freedom in exchange for less direction.


You've might have played it already, but if you love FF7, you might love Xenogears too. The gameplay is different, but I feel like they're similar in terms of tone and atmosphere (with Xenogears being a bit more consistently dark). I played it recently, and over the course of disk 1 it gave me the same feeling that FF7 gave me back in the day.

This doesn't even make any sense you faggot, what the fuck is "a fairy one". And Phantasy Star is a JRPG, that's sci-fi not fantasy. Nigger.

Xenogears was originally pitched for FF7 but was considered too mature. Also the mechs would be out of place for FF series.

Either you are false-flagging(with good reason because you are a horrible poster) or this is legitimately you waifu-whoring. You shit on everyone else's favorite games but when someone says something remotely bad about bof2, you shit up the thread with kat spam. bof 2 is really underwhelming, but nice progression from bof 1. Dragon transformation being the worst point, considering that is all the BoF series has to differentiate from other jrpgs

why do you get to say the n-word but i get a warning if I say it?

The most significant factor is one is made by Japan and the other in the west. That is about the closest we can get to consensus without resorting autistic shitfests

good stuff, your post was fairly neutral as well but ended triggering someone anyways.

>popular for a reason
I'll back up your sentiment. I never liked JRPGs growing up and have heard two decades of FF7 hype, and finally got around to playing it this year, and I'm pretty impressed. It's a slog until you get out of Midgar, and Junon ain't that fun either, but after that it gets out of its own way and it's pretty great. Music is excellent, graphics and atmosphere are top-notch (i love the pre-rendered backgrounds despite hating them as a kid), and the materia system is one of the better gimmicks I've seen in an RPG. Fun to customize, but not tedious or intrusive. Throw in the serviceable story and flashy FMVs, and it's really easy to see why this game had the impact it did 20 years ago.

That said, my favorite is right here >>3745217.

I got to say BoF4 purely for it's smooth sprite animations. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
Even outside of battles, the characters had all sorts of little gestural animations.

And they didn't ruin it by zooming - causing the graphics to scale and look all wonky.

>> No.3745998

What? Midgar is the best part

>> No.3746019

Misnomer. Its a category named after the style of rpgs that came from Japan. Being made in Japan doesn't make it a jrpg.

As a genre, it comes with more than few conventions.
If I had to whiddle it down, I'd characterize it as party based combat with command menus. Distinct from Action-Rpgs that are single character combat, with actions mapped to controller buttons.

>> No.3746027

I think maybe if you have nostalgia for it, but honestly it's just WORDS WORDS WORDS WORDS WORDS WORDS. I understand there's worldbuilding going on in there, but it could have been a LOT more efficient. There's too little actual gameplay during that segment, and I felt I was struggling to get a hold of the flow of the battle mechanics simply because I wasn't being allowed to play as much.

I admit the atmosphere was glorious, but given that I only had a little bit of time to devote to playing the game every day after work, I felt like I was sitting down and never actually accomplishing much. Pacing was awful.

And not to be confused with Action-Adventure games like Zelda that have no character progression. Even though they might have adventure elements - using items to navigate the environment.

You'd be surprised how many people don't know video game genres are distinguished by gameplay.

CT tends to be the favorite of people who haven't played very many jrpgs. Thus it is very well loved, but on a board like this where there are a lot of enthusiasts of the genre, there tends to be more diversity of favorites.

Why do you samefag so much? What do you get out of it? You have been exposed many times before, just accept who you are. That is the first step.

Sprite animation is awesome

Can you explain why? It is easy to discredit me with memes but you as the Kat poster are universally hated for the kind of detraction you do when someone disagrees with you. Hell you cannot even formulate a coherent response in most your posts. Then again discussion seems to be secondary, primary objective is to talk about Kat.
