Jrpg's this gen are pretty much rocking in gameplay and replaybility, no wonder most of them releasing this gen are critically acclaimed as well. Finished Nier Automata yesterday all 4 Routes and im very satisfied with Nier Automata over Mass Effect Andromeda (Two rpg's which i completed recently).

I want more high budget JRPGs that push the envelope in terms of story and mechanics. I don't want another linear grindfest with cutesy graphics.

As an example I'll mention Resonance of Fate that we god last generation. The combat mechanics are amazingly deep and very different from anything else out there. The story feels half-told and unfinished but at least it was something different in both content and way it was told.

As for lack of linearity, that's harder to find in JRPGs but Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor does this well.

I wouldn't mind a few more myself, preferably traditional turn-based ones, so I say yay.

Meh.

I hate JRPGs and I have never enjoyed even a single game from this genre so I personally could not care less if there was never another JRPG ever released again, but I also have no problem with them being released for the people who do like this genre.

I don't play them. But, on the PC, it's not like they're fighting for shelf space. So.... Bring em on. Choice is good.

So long as they have their own genre to fall under so I don't have to sift through them.

We need more non-Square-Enix JRPGs. Square-Enix hasn't made a decent JRPG in like forever.

@omnichris: FFXV was fun if you watch King's Glaves. Nier Automata isn't bad either. Bravely Default and Bravely Second are pretty great.

Sure if by Jrpgs you mean Japanese made RPGs. Go ahead, as long as it is within the studio's talents.

But the typical traditional jRPG model sucks. Avoid that.

I really dislike the direction most JRPGS have gone in these days. Back with turn based combat, we had complete control over all our party members and the strategy that went with that.

Please give control back to the player.

Now most JRPGs are action based and the other 3 members of your party are controlled by AI. I seriously can't stand that. Last time I tried that style of gameplay, it was Ni No Kuni and I just couldn't go through with it.

Agree with this, I dont like the direction most newer JRPGs have taken.

Its like an awkward hybrid of action/turn based (new final fantasy, Tales of games etc) I prefer an RPG to be one or the other, full action (Dark Souls, Skyrim etc) or full turn based (Older Final Fantasy games )

Don't ever talk for me, because you look like an arse, well more so then you usually do.

Yes I would like more RPG's from Japan, not going to use that useless JRPG term.

Totally agree, most "rpgs" these days are more like hack and slash games.
