You should have listed your favorite WRPGs instead, of taking a shot at JRPGs (you did with the 'Generic' take). It was clear from the first post that this was a discussion about JRPGs mainly. 

Alright, I'll remember the "taking the shot" comment any time I see someone not preferring RTS games over TBS next time. Instead I'll treat it as some form of personal attack, rather than a simple and personal pref.

Uhh, also, the title says "what are your fave RPG's ever", not "what are your fave JRPG's ever?". Nowhere in the OP did it mention that this topic should and always be about just JRPG's , nor does a few talking about JRPG's make this a JRPG only thread. OP even states: "Again you can list whatever sub-genre or not".

So, why not state your own list and move on? You had to make the "generic" comment, knowing full well that you were attacking a certain genre that was the dominant genre in the conversation. Everybody made a list, you took a shot, then claimed there is a personal 'beef' against you when you were called on it.

I have to ask the two of you the same thing. Why not just move on, instead of taking direct offense to my own opinion on what I like.

I've too many a WRPG to list, and at this moment in time, I'm not exactly going to adhere to demands, simply because it'll then fit in with the "now ya'll can move on" desire.

You cannot be wilfully ignorant, to suggest there is no such thing as a generic game, generic art, generic anything. DO not be that guy, who defies stupidity for no good reason. There are generic games in both categories of RPG out there, some that were reviewed badly, and some that just didn't do well at all, nor stand out. 

It's amusing that you cite it as a direct "attack", as if the genre has a personality, a will of it's own, despite myself knowing full well that both sides have their own generic assets and styles. I just happen to prefer WRPG's over JRPG's, but you two cannot accept that it seems.

It's personal beef, because I'm not adhering to your shitty demands. Twice this has happened, because two people didn't like what I had to say, yet are absolutely guilty of saying shit that others didn't always agree with,. Do not shove hypocrisy down my throat, boy. Do not even begin to claim you're not guilty of saying stuff others didn't agree with.

Only one person has resorted to cursing, and name calling. Ironically, the one person who complained about this forum not being "twitter". This wasn't a thread of agreement or disagreement. It is a discussion in which you are asked to list a set of your own personal favorite games in a genre, something that you have yet to do.



-Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 + 2
-Valkyria Chronicles
-Mass Effect (1)

If counting MMORPGs too:

-World of Warcraft (Burning Crusade - Lich King era)
-Star Wars: The Old Republic

I feel like I'm drawing a blank on any other ones atm (kinda tired), but these come to mind so easily since I've reviewed most of them. Not sure if I've put them on this site yet.

I still have a major soft spot for Final Fantasy IV. I still rank it as my favorite JRPG ever. The 16-bit era as a whole was to me the best generation for JRPGs as a genre.

And yet it has already veered off course, thanks to your continued last word on a subject that isn't a part of the OP.

Also, I told you before as to why I didn't list, but I'm not ehre to adhere to what you find acceptable/not accessible.

Some of my favorites:

Final Fantasy VI -- this, to me, is the best turn-based RPG ever made and the best SNES game (which is saying a lot)
Deus Ex -- the emergent gameplay and player choice in this one is phenomenal
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind -- a remarkable, lived-in open world with so much to do, see, and decide
Xenoblade Chronicles -- a near-perfect mixture of mechanics, battle systems, mission design, character progression, exploration, story, and sound



Dunno about all time but def some of my faves last gen were Kingdoms of Amalur. Dragon Age Origins. Deus Ex Human Revolution. The Last Story and Blue Dragon.

Fallout 3 and 4, and Pokemon. Those are the only ones I've played and enjoyed. RPGs are maybe my least favorite genre, because they tend to focus more on story than gameplay, which just isn't my style. I do eventually want to play a Kingdom Hearts or Fire Emblem game, but that hasn't happened yet.
