can we remove Eastern rpgs those don\'t exist lol no one calls them that. theyre just jrpgs
Can we REALLY get rid of that "quote"? Seriously, that link to whatever the hell it is is a douchebag mess of sloppy fanwank and bitter regret.
No one calls these "Eastern RPG" they call them "jRPG"
I agree with this. Can anyone name even one RPG from Asia with a substantial following that wasn't developed in Japan?
I fixed all the mentions in the text, but couldn\'t seem to edit the article\'s title
I would like to add a point to the distinctive features list about how Eastern RPGs tend to concentrate heavily on combat (with most quests culminating in killing things), while Western RPGs try (or at least pretend to) give you alternative approaches like diplomacy and stealth. But maybe I have just been playing wrong Eastern RPGs—I admit my experience with them was rather limited. Has anyone made similar observations?
Shin Megami Tensei has an alternative to fighting where you can recruit monsters by talking and convincing them to join your side. Would that example work?
(Oops, somehow my comment ended up on this page, instead of the one I intended it to be on.)
