Last time I trusted /v/ on a "good" JRPG.
>expect something different
>my character is a spiky blonde haired emo
>my first team mates are a ladyboy elf and a cardboard cut out of a weebs waifu
>go through the game grinding in turn based combat literally pressing two buttons nt even looking at the screen
>other teammates are a powerful magic loli that can't even talk or walk well yet
>a flirty THICK!!!! elf mage (her THICK!!! gave her more character than all the other characters combined)
>the edgiest mother fucker in the universe complete with scythe and black red clothes
And at that moment I knew I had fallen for memes and that /v/ just has shit taste in games 95% of the time.
When someone suggests JRPGs to you feel free to ignore them because they probably like gobbling down shit as well.
It was some hipster trash I had to import because I didn't get localized.
I don't even remember the title at this point. It now lays in a bargain bin somewhere.
The only reason I gave it a chance to begin with is because I wanted to give the genre a last chance.
If you are going to give the genre a last chance, I'd wait to see how this year goes at least. There are loads of solid looking JRPGs coming out this year, with Dragon Quest, Ni No Kuni, Bravely Second and whatnot. If this year disappoints, I'm going to be set back on JRPGs as well
>/v/ tells me Agarest Generations of War is good
>/v/ tells me tales of Zestiria is good
/v/ will eat any shit up as long as there are anime characters in it. Like, for /v/, to turn a mediocre game into a "good" game you just have to make the characters "cute" and add plenty of fan-service.
Neo-/v/, Game-play out, Waifus in
>/v/ recommends me the Hyperdimension Neptunia series
>expect an underrated RPG that gets blindly shot down because of waifubait characters
>the series is extremely mediocre
>the monsters are all forgettable looking cute blobs and references I don't care about
>90% of the dialogue is DUDE BOOBS LMAO
But /v/ also recommended me Suidoken and the SaGa games and those were fantastic.
How can /v/ have such polar tastes? Could it be...
/v/ is not one person
Anon, you don't know true pain yet.
>Bosses give enough exp to get you through game with zero grinding
Holy shit, its like weaboos have the worst taste ever and people make shovelware moe shit to get easy otakubucks.
Mate they already ruined anime as a whole, the fuck do you think you are doing, talking to those people and taking them seriously?
>In a dungeon
>left path and right path
>take left one
>it's long as fuck
it's a dead end
Wish I would've seen those. Could've bought something good
>the game gives you the option to turn off random encounters
Bravely Default had a great idea that I've never seen done in any JRPG before - Being able to turn enemy encounters up or down at MY discretion instead of wasting money on items to do that job, along with difficultyas well, that was a breathe of sweet fresh air.
I'll be honest though, I still unintentionally grind when I'm looking to fill out a map, I'm like lvl 48-50 and I'm only in chapter two.
>play a western cinematic experience
>take two steps

>walk n talk psuedo cutscene
>continue the fight in the upcoming dlc!
Why would you want that? Anime tier character designs are what makes JRPGs so good. Go back to your manface gay nigger simulator Fallout 4.
It's people like you that ruin perfectly fine genres.
>Has random encounters
>Has a symbol that changes colors the sooner you are to having a random encounter
>Allows you to prepare for fights
I like random encounters in games like Pokemon or SMT where you make enemies join your side.
You just described Star Ocean 4. You're retarded though, combat isn't turn based at all and requires much more than to press 2 buttons. Sounds like you didn't even play it but watched your favourite internet attention whore play it for you on youtube.
>Enemies that appear on overworld rather than random encounter
>They follow you, but then hightail it away from you the moment you're the strongest in the area.
>play Kamidori Alchemy Meister
>it's the best JRPG I've played since the PSX era
>challenging and interesting SRPG battles
>funny, interesting, and genuinely touching storyline
>it's an eroge
I don't understand the universe
