    Unironically yes. The last 5 years have been better for JRPGs than the 90s. Vanilla P5 is much better than Royal and Arise is super garbage though

    if Tales of Arise's cookie-cutter, bland, shitty cast is the best JRPGs have to offer nowadays then they should just stay dead

      This, I got Tales of Arise looking for more refreshing anime deliciousness like the Trails of Cold Steel series.
      What I got was barely a "JRPG" and more of a compromised, boring game that tries to be a grim Western rpg like Skyrim and ends up as a floaty, boring, play-it-safe unplayable mess

    Most of those games had better entries in the 90s or 00s.
    Abyss, Symphonia, Destiny R DC
    Xenogears, Xenosaga Episode III
    Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn
    Persona 2 Innocent Sin, Eternal Punishment.

    Not in the Golden age at all.

                I would add that it was "rejected" years ago, even before XC2 release, when it made sense.
                The I.P grew a lot since then, smash etc.
                Xenosaga WILL be remastered in the future for sure (I WON'T buy it).

    Twitter fag is right though. I've been playing games since 1990, and choice in JRPGs has never been better.

    The Ganker seething reeks of low IQ zoomers who spout 'new thing bad' in a desperate bid to mask the fact that they have no souls nor opinions of their own.

    Good luck to surpass SNES-PS1 double victory. I also include PS2 on the bunch, but most people would disagree. Things went downhill from 7th gen, imo.

    Nowhere near the SNES/PS1 golden era where Squaresoft was on a roll, but I'd say we're close to the PS2 era of JRPGs which is a big step up from the disaster of the PS3/PS4 eras.

    >Tales of Arise
    Haven't played it but from what I know it got the budget and visual busted the series desperately needed but that actual story and characters are weak.
    >Xenoblade 3
    Absolutely the best, and it makes Ganker contrarians and retards seethe because it doesn't choo choo train spoon feed them all with a 40 minute exposition dump so they can't pretend that they've played the game when they actually haven't.
    >Fire Emblem Engage
    Controversial hair color aside, the quality of the maps, visuals, colors and animations are such a ridiculously massive improvement over three houses and it doesn't have a route split either so I have a hard time believing it won't be good.
    >Persona 5
    Massive improvement in visuals, budget and the battle system however the story is by far the worst in the entire series (including 1 and both 2s) and the characters just put their all into making sure they unlikeable as humanly possible. Confidants (Social links) are easily the weakest out of the nu Persona games too.

    There's definitely been a lot more RPG releases in the past few years, not as much as in the 90s though, and there's still a lot of misses. Feel that devs still need to figure out how modern games need to feel while still maintaining quality gameplay, story and world/dungeon design.
    A classic example of a fuck up is the recent Soul Hackers 2, completely fails to understand what anyone wanted, gameplay that doesn't evolve or improve on anything, and utterly horrendous dungeon design, resulting into the massive flop that it was.

    It's wild how JRPGs have been so fucking samey and boring for years that just adding a modicum of gameplay and stylistic variety suddenly makes it the "golden age of jrpgs". A bit sad they're still years behind but hey progress is progress.
