    I prefer JRPGs to Western ones. They just seem more fun to play, for me.

    This could have been written by Yahtzee (in fact I had his voice in my head when I was reading it).

    I find it strange how some westerners are so hostile towards Japan. First with accusations of nationalistic capitalism in the form of boycotting xbox (could it possibly be that Japanese people don't always like FPS, hyper-realistic sports games and other "western" styles of games?) and then with articles about how RPG's need to change into Western RPGs.

    If you don't like something, don't buy it! Simple as. It's a practice people have been doing for quite a while.

    Nice article. What's your opinion on JRPGs?

    the only things i would change are the plots, cutscenes and the main heroes. other than that everything else is good even if its wacky

    I read the whole thing.

    EPIC. FREAKIN'. LULZ.

    "Given the choice between learning a big fireball spell and the ability to even very slightly explode butts, I think the choice is obvious.

    Ah, this was precious. Although I don't really play RPGs anymore... but I remember all of these points and can sympathize. No doubt it's only gotten worse!

    I'm taking this article as a satire, and I think the cure for him would be FFXI ; )
