Have you played Kotor1 and Jade Empire then?
I've played Jade Empire. It was alright. I don't HATE WRPGs, they're just second rate to me. I'll still take a WRPG over a shooter anytime, any day. But I just grew up playing JRPGs--they're what made me a gamer. A lot of the younger generations didn't have that opportunity so they've fallen in love with action and button mashing rather than a tear-evoking, cut-scene filled story.
yea since SNES really had a lot of tear evoking cutscenes right?
You don't have to be a smart butt. I didn't say anything about SNES having cutscenes. Heck, I realize that--I'm 30 and have been gaming my whole life. I had an Atari and Sega Genesis, etc It was just a casual thing with buddies before I got ahold of FF. That was when I officially quit playing on the PC. The ps2 is over 10 years old now. That makes your current 13 year old teenager that loves his shooters and gore filled action games a little too young to remember a lot of the games that I played when I was in high school.
Eitherway, it doesn't matter. I enjoy the WRPG to a degree--but I'll always prefer JRPGs. Different strokes for different folks. Good for those that like WRPGs better--it doesn't matter to me--just putting my own opinion out there.
