My Game of the Year 2019: Death Stranding https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFHK9zXyXsw&feature=emb_logo

Cant wait of FF7 Remake/Last of Us 2/Ghost of Tsushima

Great Sales for the best JRPG this generation! Highest reviewed exclusive JRPG as well. I can't wait to play the Royal edition on my Pro.



We did it! 3 Million copies sold! And to think the bet I made was only for 2m.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Switch lite really screwed up my Switch prediction this year! Looks like it's going to be about 19.5m-20m for the Switch in 2019, 14.3m for PS4.

I remember when people said that Persona 5 would not go much further than 1 mil because it is a "niche" game.



Nintendo Switch Friend Code: SW-5643-2927-1984

How much must a game like Persona 5 have costed Atlus to make, disribute and market?? 10M $, 15M $ tops???.

This game has been super succesful financially and with P5 Royal (which is basically 90% of the same game at full price again) they're going to add another million, at least to that sum.

The game did not meet my expectations after Persona 4 Golden is one of my favorite games ever (is still a very good 8/10 game though), but i'm still happy about this news.

Persona franchise is basically and officially now the 3rd biggest JRPG franchise in the world after Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, not bad. Persona 6 needs to happen and take the next step in the franchise like P3 did back in the day.

Isn't Pokemon a JRPG? How about Fire Emblem?



Pocky Lover Boy!

Fire Emblem is an SRPG (Strategy RPG), Pokemon is eh... maybe? But it's not a more traditional JRPG like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Persona, Chrono Trigger, Xenoblade, Kingdom Hearts etc.

edit: Wiki says it's "Tactical RPG" not sure when that happened. I swear games like Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics used to be called Strategy RPG's.

Lol Pokemon...that's true. Pokemon is so far ahead that sometimes i forget that is technically a JRPG too, maybe not much in the very conventional term of what a JRPG means but it is one nonetheless.

As for Fire Emblem....is it a JRPG though???. Is not more close to another genre like strategy with bits of an RPG here and there?, like Valkyria Chronicles for example. If we consider Fire Emblem a JRPG..., well i think both FE and Persona are about neck and neck then, but i would not consider FE a JRPG if you asked me.



Pokemon and Fire Emblem are BOTH JRPG's. Nipping that at the bud now. It very easy to forget Pokemon because nobody plays Pokemon because its a JRPG. No Persona is not the 3rd biggest JRPG series.

EDIT: Action, turnbased, tactical are just branches. JRPG is just an RPG developed with the Japanese formula

I find it funny that you consider Kingdom Hearts a "Traditional" JRPG considering how much influence it draws from action and action-adventure games.



Love and tolerate.
