Y'know what I really fucking hate? People coming to me with this absurd idea that Action JRPGs are "evolution" of turn based JRPGs.

That's a load of shit. I play the two of them for 2 completely different reasons.
Turn based is more methodically, more on strategic and thinking, and has RNG, something I can play at a leisurley pace.
Action is more fast and instantaneous with no RNG.

The two are very different, and should be allowed to co-exist, it'd be much better than these hybrids between the two where we have full 3D movement and shit, but attacking is still done from a menu, and attacks can still miss even though my sword CLEARLY cut through that dood.

It's cool to not like that and all, but there are people who like it, so you're sort of falling on deaf ears here..

Fine whatever, keep the hybrids, but this idea that they, and action jrpgs are the evolution of turn based, it's causing less and less turn based jrpgs to be.

Like, besides Pokemon, Dragon Fantasy, what other turn based jrpgs came out last year?

Dark Souls?
It has RNG can can be played leisurely?

I know I know
I'm just pointing out it does exactly that as an action RPG.
In a turn-based rpg you have to learn and memorize attack patterns as well... soyeah


THAT SAID...
I WOULD LIKE TO DROP SO LOVE FOR

SHADOWRUN RETURNS
A CRPG THAT WAS FUNDED WITH KICKSTARTER
YET IN THE END NO ONE REALLY GAVE FUCKS ABOUT.

No one plays Hyperdimension Neptunia. Dammnit, Tana.

I, for one, prefer my turn based systems. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Fire Emblem: Awakening and Pokemon X are all games with spots on my Top 10 Games of All Time list. Kingdom Hearts II, Skyrim and The Last Story are not.

Excuse me? Then what, pray tell, makes an RPG an RPG?

Because I sure see a turn-based battle system in Fire Emblem.

I have no idea what a WRPG is.

You command a large amount of units on a grid where you must position them to attack foes right? That's a turn based strategy game, as opposed to real time strategy games like Starcraft where there is no grid, but rather an open map where units can move freely.

WRPG=Western RPG like TGN said.
