If you are going down that road then nothing is an RPG because you are always forced down 2-3 roads

Being allowed 2-3 routes is better than being forced on one, like JRPGs do. And because Japan doesn't understand RPGs, no other aspect of the game is made serviceable to delivering an RPG experience in the slightest.

Most of the games on the west are boring brown and bloom Skyrim clones. Most of the games on the right are the exact same kawaii anime garbage repeated ad nauseum. Only a few exceptions exist, like maybe Paper Mario and Earthbound. But nothing else.

Western RPG's haven't been good for over a decade. They've lost the great character building, roleplaying, immersive worlds and good quests that made them good, so now you're left with dumb action games with open worlds. And japs do those sorts of games far better than the west ever could because the west sucks ass at action games.

Precisely. That's the same boring, pretentious theme that 99% of RPGs share these days, eastern or western. it's gotta be about the cinematic journey, or love, or working together as a team, like this is an ABC special running after school. And there's nothing inherently wrong with the idea, but it's just been overdone and underutilized, not only that but it drains out other potential ideas.

As an example, I'll point you to pic related. Notice how all the western and eastern high profile RPGs are down in the lower ranks? That's because they're shallow and all about the spectacle, instead of having substance. The best RPG of that given year was a very simple one, that didn't try to push some garbage message, or preach to you, or bore you with cinematics, or some cheesy romance. It actually had FUN gameplay.

Not a fan of Wasteland 2 or PoE but you do have a point with games like Underrail and Age of Decadence coming out. Hopefully the trend won't die.

But isn't the point to debate whether or not the game development culture in each country tends to produce games of higher quality?
>>
>>323976478
Even though this is a bait thread it does kind of raise a good point.

Why do western developers have such a hard on for generic high fantasy settings when it comes to RPGs?

Is it because of Dungeons and Dragons and Lord of the Rings?

Why does it seem like there is so much more variety in settings with JRPGs as opposed to WRPGs?
>>
>>323981950

The way I see it, the age we live in there is always going to be games of X genre being made, as there is enough wanna be game devs out there, with increasing accessibility to decent tools.
Now, doesn't mean we're going to get works of art GOAT releases for every genre regularly, but as long as we keep our eyes out the occasional gem should show up.

The list in general is my picks for "best game of 2012". Apologies, I forgot to trim the non-RPGs from it. Let me trim it down real quick.

>Desolate Hope in 8/10
>Hyperdimension Neptunia and Dust in 5/10
>Xenoblade in 4/10
>FF13, Paper Mario and Kingdom Hearts in 3/10

As a general note, the less story your RPG has, the higher it ranks. Why? Well, RPGs have always been inherently flawed by relying so much on a heavy story. Xenoblade in particular has 10 hours of cutscenes, what the heck man. And no, there's no amount of gameplay that can justify that. It's inconceivable why someone would do that.

An RPG that can be interesting without a bunch of garbage story is one noteworthy of praise.
>>
>>323981929
This thread wasn't good to begin with but now it's unsalvageable.
>>
>>323982175

That's a silly argument from my view. When people within that culture make a game in a way that goes against the tropes of the culture, you still get people that judge it purely from where it came from. So if the W vs J argument was within the lines of what you stated, it may have some worth, but reality doesn't represent that very often at all.
>>
>>323982206

Well the issue isn't really western developers but western development (american not european).

So many kids have gone through uni and got 'Game Development Degree's' and have got WAAAAAAAAY to large. There's two major issues with this. Firstly it's harder to change ideas with a larger team. So it's hard to add or change features past the beggining of the development cycle. Secondly western dev teams are sometimes in the hundreds they have to pay these people and thus are forced to make a game that will sell, not one with creative or developed ideas. They bet on games that have large appeal, which are generally games which are easily marketable. These tend to be large games that include a bit of everything but unfortunately nothing worth while after the first 20-30 hours or so.

Until there's a huge collaspe in the AAA western industry, we will still be getting over hyped extremely average games that don't excel at any one area.

>>
>>323982175
I think that highlighting differences in development culture is completely valid, anon, but western devs can produce trash just the same as eastern ones.

Being predisposed to hating a game for the sole reason of its country of origin though is completely garbage.

I'm not claiming my opinion to be fact, but what I AM doing is basing my findings on sound reasoning. Now, tell me if I'm wrong here:

>a video game should involve you playing the game
>a game with a heavy emphasis on story involves you NOT playing the game, but instead watching the game as it plays a fancy cgi cutscene every 5 minutes
>erego, a good game will never waste your time with more story than necessary

Is this wrong? And if you would argue that "it lasts a long time, so the cutscenes are worth it!" let me remind you that, again, xenoblade has not one, not two, but TEN HOURS of story. Honestly, the game could have 1000+ hours of replayability, but that wouldn't justify a cutscene every single moment of the game.

I'm not saying the game shouldn't exist. I'm just critically analyzing it.
