I know this is completely an illogical comparison, but hey this SW and going beyond logic is a lot more fun sometimes. I gotta admit SW can be pretty addictive 8).. Anyway, I wont dwell in more details, I just wanna have some fun.. So lets begin.

BTW you are free to bash the FPS/JRPG genre as long as you can, just be careful not to get modded.8)

I'm voting JRPG. Why?

Because somebody gotta handle the mindless hordes that yearn for Call of Duty.

NeonNinja is HERE! And NeonNinja is an IMMOVABLE OBJECT AND AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE all mixed into one!

Over all the JRPG haters you can hear our laughter! BOOYA!!!!

fps easily... dont get me wrong.. i like jrpgs.. (mainly main pokemon games , ffx , all dragon quest games and wild arms) But fps probably one of my fav genres out there and most of my favourite games of all time are fps (counter strike , day of defeat , half life , timesplitters etc..) fps wins this round.

I agree. Now some JRPGs are ok, like Pokemon, but all that anime crap is just horrible

I've enjoyed lots of FPSs, but few JRPGS. Actually, Tales of Symphonia is the only one I can think of right now. Unless you count the Mario RPGs and Fire Emblem..

jrpg as a genre have been in the toilet for what now? over a decade? two decades?

fps have only been uninspired and derivitive for a paltry few years.

I much prefer FPS over JRPGs. I used to like JRPGs back on the SNES and PS2, but it was on the PS2 that I started to get really tired of the same old art styles, character designs and crappy combat systems.

I'd say the fps genre is more diverse in general. Besides, there haven't very many good jrpgs this gen.

Honestly unless the shooter had a strong, decent length Single player component I'd rather have a JRPG.

All im going to say to this is Lost Odyssey,Demons Souls,Monster hunter (can be classified as an action JRPG) those 3 especialyl go against your whole perception of the genre and you would most likely enjoy the latter 2 great multiplayer games aswell especially monster hunter.

Yeah, anyone who likes JRPGs is a weeaboo loser!!

But seriously, JRPGs by far, I'm sick of cookie cutter FPSs, they all feel the same with few exceptions. Most FPSs are just plain boring, especially on consoles. JRPGs have memorable stories, memorable characters, nice music, fun and unique battle systems, and they have really long single player stories that can take months to beat so you really get your money's worth. JRPGs are the best, they're SO MUCH FUN!!! I'm sick of the emo stereotype of JRPG protagonists thanks to Final Fantasy VII, that's the game everyone thinks of when they hear "JRPG." Try playing Tales of Vesperia or Dark Cloud 2.

I'm sure the only "anime" you know is Dragonball Z where yelling is what makes everyone stronger. Try watching some good anime like Fullmetal Alchemist, Eden of the East, Samurai Champloo or Cowboy Bebop. Good animes have an emphasis on story telling, not making the characters look cool/cute.

not really the Japanese resemblences do tend to come out in Lost Odyssey and MH in a few ways but just not as obvious as a franchise like say, tbh lost odyssey has a pretty varied variety of influences on the whole game theres some Indian type aesthetics in there and some more European ones aswell...star ocean or blue dragon on the other hand are straight up and down like Anime you love it or hate it.

Demons Souls is strange, its a Japanese take on the WRPG in some ways and none, partially because of its aesthetics and overall designs in some ways but still nods to the JRPG ethics in some ways.

Well they haven't been all the same but CoD has certainly had a negative impact on the industry.

JRPGs.

Since shooter-loves are generalizing, I will as well.

How is it fun to hold down the shoot button while running in a straight line?

Personally, I prefer FPS. Never could get into JRPG. Only one I remember liking was Chrono Trigger, and FF7 to some extent. I haven't played many, though.

I think the JRPG genre has an advantage, because it can include a wide variety of gameplay and storytelling; while FPS games are more limited.
