Or maybe you are burned out and should take a break from JRPGs or gaming in general. For me, JRPGs are as fun as they were 5 or 10 years ago.

Eww! God of War!

This post (taken from the game journal) I think sums up a great deal of why many people get their favorite types of games shit on.  I've seen quite a few RPG fans who are completely apoplectic when someone suggests that they play something that's not an RPG.

I'd guess that more than a small portion of the fans that feel like they've been placed in the JRPG ghetto have said (to the people that they feel are making them outcasts) something that's hateful toward "mainstream" gaming, or whatever you'd like to call it.

I think that you're going to get uninformed statements back at you if you make them.  I don't care about God of War (or the aforementioned post about it), but it just made me think of this thread.

Honestly who the fuck cares? They're video games.

I don't play these things to climb any social ladder. I play them because they're fun.

Yeah, this is a little bit like saying football is better than baseball or whatever. People are gonna play them and like them regardless, nothing you say is going to change it.

Bingo.  I'm all about playing nice and enjoying what I find fun.

If you said that, you'd be wrong.
I like all kinds of games, but I tend to hate on 3rd person button masher/ddr hybrids like God of war. I love Gears of War, but hate FPS games. Love platformers. Love Elder scrolls games but hate most other western RPGS.

Hell, I like what I like and hate what I hate, and frankly, I don't give a shit what's in style these days. It's going to change next month anyway. When I was a in HS FF7 was the shit, now it's not. Despite my displeasure with ff13 I did finish the game, I just didn't love it. I borderline hated it, but I was able to tough it out. Same with all the games I mentioned earlier. When ff7 was over though, I remember thinking damn, that's it? I want more! That was after like... 70 hours! I miss being hooked like that.

So far Radient Historia is getting me what I was looking for, we'll see if it sticks.

[Edit] dammit Dyeager beat me...
Well go Yanks anyway!

I have no idea whether or not you just agreed with me or said I was wrong.

This is probably the most intelligent statement made in this thread.

BTW, I like JRPGs and God of War!  What's with all the God of War hate? ;)

Opinion's a bitch like that.
Mongoose, disagree on baseball, agree on the rest.

God of War's a little bland for me. I prefer Bayonetta or, for a more similar game, Lords of Shadow. I did like II more than I though.
