The "Tales of" series is the best jrpg series out there. That needs to get more attention, final fantasy has enough.

Maybe I have a different definition of jrpg, but I can't say I see them as underrepresented. I'm referring to the gameplay/style of the game, rather than the location of the publisher/developer.
I'm not even a great fan of the genre, but a number of series come to mind immediately.

Admittedly, I don't own any of the latest generation of consoles, but traditionally it has been jrpgs that dominated on those, as opposed to western rpgs, which dominated on PCs. If you're referring to the old school top-down jrpgs, they may be less common on consoles than they used to be, though I'd be shocked if there weren't many of them on portable systems at least.

Personally, I feel there is more of a need/lack of old school 2d games on home systems like Contra, Double Dragon, Metroid or Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but apparently the rest of the world just wants the shiny 3d graphics and don't care about these styles of gameplay, which mostly don't work as well in 3d. Not targeting jrpgs with that statement, btw.

i agree if tales games are noticed more by the public more of the games from the series will be localised

Outside of the odd game that catches my fancy for some reason (FFX, Ys Origin, Lost Odyssey) I find the genre to be severely lacking. The aesthetics generally make me want to bang my head against a wall and I find their cookie cutter characters significantly more annoying the cookie cutter characters from Western RPG's.

JRPG tends to refer to a style of game. And the fact they tend to do come from Japan.

The problem I generally see, is that the market is shrinking here in the West. Sure, big names like Final Fantasy could still turn a nice dime, but for the most part, it's becoming a much more niche market then the SNES/PS1 heyday. With sweeping open world games like Skyrim, Mass Effect, and Fallout much more appealing to the general Westerner (and our not so crazy sensibilites lol), it's no wonder the market has shrunk.

I haven't played a lot of JRPGs but I can definitely say they are better than recent western RPG. Skyrim, Fallout, Borderlands and even Mass Effect are so incredibly dull to me. I wish there were more JRPG titles overseas.
