Are you retarded? Demon Souls is already out so listen up. In Feb, White Knight Chronicles, Star Ocean are coming out. March Final Fantasy XIII is coming out, God of War III too but that's not an RPG but that's not the point. All those sexy games make me want to spew baby juice. Don't forget the PS3 has Oblivion and Eternal Sonata and Tales of Vesperia and many more that I forget.

FF is a J-rpg. also known as a action adventure game with some RPG stuff in it. Like leveling.

You do not create your characters, name them, or pick your skills and weapons. You do not put your self into the game so its not a real RPG... its a J-RPG. Or Adventure game with some rpg aspects.
from what the other person said no FF was not one of the original RPG's. RPG's have been around back wen the Comodor64 was big.

Other Sample of real RPG's. Balder's Gate, Fallout 1, and fallout 2, or Two Worlds! Even Suikoden A series I loved more than most other game series... Is a J-RPG Or a adventure game with RPG aspects.

... No. Final Fantasy (all of them) are Role Playing Games. You are playing the role of the main character (or characters).In no way shape or form could you ever consider the first 11 final fantasy games as an "action game". They're turned based for goodness sakes.

It's been stated at least twice that the distinction you're making are between western and Japanese rpg.

You keep making the statement that Oblivion and Fallout 3 were "best sellers". They did well here in the US, but shockingly enough, not that well in Japan... And guess where most of the game developers are?

As has been said, there are several games coming out for the PS3 White Knight Chronicles, Star Ocean, and of course Final Fantasy. If you want to play games like Oblivion or Fallout 3, try Mass Effect 1 or 2 (I know it's not on the PS3 but the best way to truly enjoy those games anyway is on a PC)

playing the role of a character, is not a RPG.. other wise every game ever made would be a rpg. Because in Zelda as adventure game, would be a rpg because you play the role of Link. Nascar. you play the role of a race car driver, So no playing a role does not make it RPG... RPG is about creating a character and its role. SO no games like FF and Grandia they might be J-RPG but there not RPGs.
And Zelda is a action adventure game, does not even make it as a J-RPG.

RPG video game charactistics:

Generally, the player controls a small number of game characters, usually called a party, and achieves victory by completing a series of quests. Players explore a game world, while solving puzzles and engaging in tactical combat. A key feature of the genre is that characters grow in power and abilities, and characters are typically designed by the player. RPGs rarely challenge a player's physical coordination, with the exception of action role-playing games.

These games usually have a highly developed story and setting, which is divided into a number of quests. Players control one or several characters by issuing commands, which is performed by the character at an effectiveness determined by that character's numeric attributes. These attributes increase each time a character gains a level, and a character's level goes up each time the player accumulates a certain amount of experience.

What the hell!!! The best sellers and best games out there are Classic RPG style games like Fallout3 and Oblivion for the ps3. SO tell me!!! WHY THE HELL ARE they not making more games like that.. or even rpg's? Has the people who been making games for the PS3 lost touch with what is good and what is not? Or is it that RPGs are just harder to make and the game makers just do not want to spend the time making them (lazy bums).

RPGs you create the character and build there stats the way you like as you go along. The world plays around you.. RPG will have missions for you to do, but for the most part open ended / non-linear is needed to be a real RPG.



RPG = Final Fantasy

Enough said.

...Look at the red...
RPG mainly focus on the creating a character.
J-RPG Do not. that is the main difference of a J-rpg and a rpg.

Just so you know Using Wikipedia proves nothing... Because Wikipedia anyone could have posted that, including a 15 year old, with no real understanding of the word.
Just like if your to look up words Like Otaku, or Anime.. Wiki... does not work for proving anything,, At that there sasses rate with the facts is something like 50%

Anime is short for Animeeshun, the Japanese word for Animation. Anything Animated is counted as anime in Japan.
Otaku is a word used in Japan wen speaking of someone who is so obsessed with something that it can be counted as a sickness. Not a favorable thing to be called. (does not need to be comics or cartoons)

yes i read the red "typically designed by the player" not always

RPG, J-RPG both have the words Roleplaying Game ur merely splitting hairs just because u dont get to have an option to change the features of a character roleplaying is roleplaying that's that.

In essence even games that you define as RPGs arent at all for the simple fact as u dont create a character u merely customize pre-existing constructs with sets of elements like hair and facial features that makes an illusion of uniqueness when in fact you will not be the only one with that particular set

i used wiki just cuz it was quick, and easy not as concrete proof, my words wouldnt mean much to u. RPG is wen u control fictional character(s) regardless if u made it or not and proceed through a story leveling or just improving the character(s). Zelda has some RPG elements with the whole heart containers etc.

bottom line fenix ur not the one that gets to decide how a RPG is defined, it is the game developers who make it that define it.

ONE. my little brother is a game developer. We both agree on the RPG and JRPG differentials
Two. I been a Gamer for most of my life. Easily over 20 years.
Three. The the fact is that Zelda has no RPG factors at all. At that Any Gamer worth his hide in salt will tell you that Zelda is a strait up action adventure game with no RPG factors.

i'm not real big on rpg's, but i have a lot of friends that are.

i've heard demon's souls is a beast rpg, and it's been out for a few months. one of my friends says it's one of the best games he's ever played. does anyone know if there's a demo or something in the psn store? i want to try it out sometime.
white knight chronicles is coming out tomorrow. the japanese version got decent reviews.
valkryria chronicles has been out for over a year, and i've heard it's a very good game. you can get it for a pretty cheap price now.
folklore is another old game, and my friends seem to like it. i thought it was shit though...
then of course there's obilvion, fallout 3, borderlands (does it count?), and the new final fantasy (coming soon). everybody knows about these four though.

o wow two ppl think theres a difference... look at this thread theres lots more ppl that think ur wrong

do u honesty think that wat u say will change anything? i can go online and find dozens of games that would fall under ur "JRPG" pseudo-catagory but r listed as RPG u know y.... cuz its the same thing

on retrospect y does this even matter to u? It shouldnt matter how its classified if its fun and ur parent r ok with it.

Quick test Darkpheonix,

What does the R in RPG stand for?

After reading through the multitude of posts you're displaying a simple fact that you just don't get it.
