"[EarthBound]'s the only Japanese RPG I've ever played right through to the end, unless you count Mario & Luigi or Paper Mario RPGs, which personally I don't, because to my mind a JRPG just isn't a JRPG unless it ends with teenagers using the power of friendship to kill god."

Paper Mario/TTYD has very light JRPG elements and might be good to see sort of what they're like.

Chrono Trigger is to my mind baby's first JRPG, or at least it was the first I ever played and I thought it was a very good foray into the genre.

And EarthBound parodies elements of the genre in a 20th century Western setting, and is pretty easy, so that might be a good entry-level choice also.

Except 1) Mew is never explicitly referred to as a god, 2) You couldn't legitimately catch Mew until Gen 3, and 3) Pokemon "ends" when you defeat the Champion, who is not a god, nor does s/he use "God-Like" Pokemon. Closest you get is Pseudo-Legendaries.

But you could though, it was given out in game events and you could even do it in game.

Mewtwo was the final boss of Gen 1 just like Red was the final boss of Gen 2.

No, both are post-game content. Games end with the credit scroll.

And Mew was an event-exclusive pokemon until Gen 3. You don't catch it; it's given to you. Not the same.

Final Fantasy XIII also counts in this too.

a JRPG just isn't a JRPG unless:

>it ends with teenagers

Lightning is 21, Snow is 21, Sazh is 40, Fang is 21 (although 521 technically), and Vanille is 19 (519 technically). The only teenager among them was Hope who was 14

>using the power of friendship
Alright I will give them that one.

>to kill god.
Orphan isn't a god. Orphan is a wheel-like fal'Cie and the source of Cocoon's power, who rests within Orphan's Cradle in an area known as Narthex Throne. Residing within a pool in a deep sleep in a state of unbirth, Orphan is the main power source to fal'Cie Eden, enabling it to siphon power from other fal'Cie to keep Cocoon afloat.

So a lot of that doesn't fit Zero Punctuation's though

Why is Yahtzee so biased against Japan in general? He abhors anything that comes from Japan, not limited to video games, even things like anime. Did he get raped by a Japanese guy as a kid or something?
>>
>>256675371
Orphan's a machine. Not a god. Something that is a god is along the lines of Kefka at the end of FF6. Or Izanagi in Persona 4.

Saying that Orphan is a god is like saying that Skynet in the Terminator series is a god.
>>
So what can be considered "God"? Do they have to be super powerful or what?
>>
>>256675584
It's an being beyond normal power and comprehension which is all mighty, all seeing and all knowing. Kefka from FF6 and Izanagi from Persona 4 would fit this.
>>
>>256671695
Yeah but he's not a teenager, is my point
>>
>>256675520
From his other podcasts he seems to be a closet weeb desperately trying to hide his powerlevel, no one else would think of watching Gankutsuou as a go to Count of Monte Cristo adaptation, or know random stuff like how Kouta Hirano started his career with Cowboy Bebop doujinshi.

In this game, they don't use friendship, because friendship would require one of them to have some sembalnce of personality. No, they just use the plot device sword and Sveta's literal plot armor to kill a dragon that came right the fuck out of nowhere. Turns out that nothing you did mattered and the villain got away. Oh yeah, and the plot point that was dropped 10 minutes in reappears for no fucking reason. Fuck this game

>they aren't jrpgs because they have a unique story not always seen in jrpgs
He's so close-minded. Is that why he says he hates "all jrpgs"?
>>
>>256683457
His stance doesn't make the statement any less true.
Most JRPGs in history are about teenagers finding their destiny and love.
Most today are the same idea just with more wifiu bullshit.
It's sad really.

Lost Odyssey.

It's about a group of old people and 2 kids rekting what is essentially a power hungry dictator.

Cave Story isn't a JRPG in the slightest, nor an RPG at all, it's an action-adventure platformer.

Speaking of which, we really need better names for this shit, action-adventure is just too broad.

>>256669530
Oh yeah because Chrono Trigger doesn't end with you killing a world-eating god monstrocity with your buddies.

I didn't want to sperg out on the guy I quoted, so I said it in a less assertive manner in the form of a question.

>Lavos is treated as a god.
When? I just recall Lavos as an alien that blows shit up. I don't recall any Lavos worshipers, and even if there are, that doesn't make it a god.

Did anyone watch his new video?

Apparently the western anime boom came from nintendo taking over the home console market after atari went to shit. Which is understandable but just plain wrong.

It doesn't. Lavos is nothing more than a hungry alien.

That's a common conception of what God is, especially in pretentious Japanese works. And who's to say that view of God is any less valid?

The American 'father' version is the original concept, not the other way around, the brother version was added to appeal to japanese later
>>
>>256684753
Sure there were.

And the word "god" doesn't necessarily fit your WASP upbringing, Lavos definitely has supernatural qualities.
>>
>>256685516
Doesn't matter.
That concept, whether you think of them as a god or not, is what Yahtzee was talking about all JRPGS having.
You can say those aren't gods, and that Yahtzee was using the wrong terminology, but it's still a common thing in JRPGs.

I don't think spess fewneral was kawaii enough or had characters they could project their headselfs onto.

Or whatever it is that draws the homestuck audience to shit up indie games. Thank god for that.

Can't say the same for YN. Rip in rip.

There are no gods at all in anything because a god is ultimate and infinite, qualifiers which zero video game characters attain and zero worldly religions achieve.

Now can we please go back to referring to gods as beings powerful enough to have complete control over at least one sphere of reality who are revered by lesser beings as a result of their ability to do so?
>>
>>256685360
IS Space Funeral even a complete game?

I've seen a few playthroughs of it but I remember none of them really ended. They go to that part where the guy takes your blood and then tries to get more but if you give him more you die
>>
>>256685761
That's a stupid way to put it. Simply because the act of killing god is supposed to be about rebellion and that link up with teenage angst that people think JRPGs have thanks to FF.

Beating up a really powerful thing is not a cliche. It's simply an event. That's like saying using a sword is a cliche or combat is a cliche
>>
Did half of the people in the thread misread the thread challenge? In persona 3 you do pretty much kill a God with the power of friendship.
>>
>>256685849

I don't think so.

You wouldn't happen to be a cicada, would you? You wanna go back to my place and meet my kids?

I think you guys are taking what he said just a little too literally.

>>256686229
In the video Yahtzee admits that even though EarthBound is the only JRPG he likes, he's never played Mother or Mother 3 because he refuses to pirate them.

Mother 1
Earthbound
Mother 3
Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced
Quite a few Final Fantasies
Most Dragon Quest games

I still need to beat Abyss, I just feel like it really should have ended like five twists ago. I've gone through like four of five dungeons that felt like they were totally the final dungeon, it just seems like the story is stretching itself out at this point.
