Danganronpa is not an RPG. Not even close. It's a visual novel and/or puzzle game. Couldn't really be much more different from RPGs if it tried.

Genshin Impact is highly questionable as a JRPG too. For starters it's Chinese. If you're treating JRPG as a genre/style to include it then that would make games like Elden Ring and Monster Hunter questionable inclusions instead. Although even then I'm not sure if Genshin Impact would fit the genre of a JRPG anyway (haven't personally played it so can't say for sure). If you're treating JRPG as being based on country of origin then it definitely can't be included.

Xcom 2 shouldn't be included as a WRPG either. It's just not an RPG. It has some RPG elements, sure, but most games do these days including things like GTA and FIFA, it's still very much a turn based tactics/strategy game though.

As for things missing, it looks like you've only got 1 game per franchise? Is that intentional? Otherwise there should definitely be more Tales games at least and Borderlands 2 in addition to 3! Also, Skyrim should definitely be included. It's been ported, yes, but so have FF14 and Diablo 3 which are both included, so Skyrim should be too.



I generally prefer JRPGs to WRPGs.
Ys VIII is my favorite.
