Forums - Gaming Discussion - JRPG's are overrated?!

In all honesty why all the hype, why does anyone like them?

Imo it is just buttonbashing and/or random fights with slow battlesystems.

If you like the story just go watch a movie.

So tell me why do you like them? ( or why not )

Buttonmashing?? I have played a good bit and don't recall button mashing. Dynasty Warriors is not considered a JRPG.  The story is usually good and building a powerful party is pretty fun as well.



They amuse me. Let me know in the future if you require more detail in my answer.

For turnbased rpgs. I love the Character Development, Strategy(that is what everybody plays JRPGS for, and the story that most movies don't have. Not to mention alot of puzzle themes. Also ATB systems keep it from being slow.

ARPGs aren't really too much of button, but I see where you are getting it from. ALot of ARPGs use a mixture of strategy and action too. Such as casting spells.
ALso I could say the same for wrpgs. ALl you do is click and move.



Why do someone likes FPS? It is just shooting whole the time?
Why do someone like Racing games? It is just racing whole the time?


Etc (totally not answering your question).

If you insult anything that can be remotely related to Kingdom Hearts II, I will mail you an envelope full of Anthrax and watch you die a very slow, painful death.
