      Because it doesn't actually mean anything in specific other than maybe "anime art style game"

            Yup. If something tastes like an apple, it's probably an apple or apple flavoured

                JRPG is more about the pacing than a handful of mechanics.

                Rpg elements. Not an rpg. The only rpgs are ff / dq and their clones.

                Megaten is also JRPG, so are Tales. Tales is a JRPG with action mechanics.

                RPG element? You mean the entire fricking gameplay?

          Do Kingdom Hearts and Dragon Quest play the same?

          A “JRPG” just means a hand with anime style where combat involves stats to some extent.

        It means an rpg made by Japan. A very useful label for people who exclusively play Japanese games.

        I imagine only western troons would want to get rid of it because it lets people know to avoid their own products

    I mean, considering how broad the term is and just denotes the place the game comes from (which is still irrelevant because of Western JRPGs), yeah i wouldn't mind retiring the term since its so vague.
    At this point, a jrpg is a game with stats and an anime looking aesthetic.

    The only AAA JRPG that exists in 2024 is a chinese mobile gacha.

    the entire genre is dead and gone if you don't see it now you will in 5 more years. It's been downhill since FF12 (the peak)

    The PS2 era really did a number on gaming discourse huh. And no JRPG has always been a derogatory name for clear anti-Japanese bias. The japs admitted they saw it as such. Fricking Phil Fish’s infamous “Japanese games are shit” rant to a Japanese man.

    Jarpigs are not real rpgs, so no.
