I give you a thumbs down they're all action games not rpg everything is called rpg :( JRPGs that's the true rpg
LuckyDT (30 days ago)
DSIII over Bloodborne? Absolutely not... either way I love the inclusion of Valkyria Chronicles, it’s really a gem.

This is the Japanese shit Microsoft xbox dosen't have, and why this crap is selling so well the Playstation console. ??

I would definitely not say Fromsoft's games, nor Nioh are jRPGs, nor is Gravity Rush... Gravity Rush is more of an action adventure/platformer game... Hell, I'd say Horizon Zero Dawn is closer to a jRPG than Gravity Rush, and Horizon *definitely* is not. Souls and Bloodborne are 3rd person action RPGs. The fact the developer is Japanese doesn't matter, it's how the game plays that matters/determines it. Games like Final Fantasy, Grandia 2, Skies of Arcadia, Suikoden, Xenosaga, Tales of whatever series, Vagrant Story, Chrono Cross/Trigger, Golden Sun, etc etc... Those are jRPGs. Souls/Bloodborne have literally nothing in common with them outside of a leveling system, items, etc which most definitely do not define something being a jRPG. Maybe some people try to argue that Souls/Bloodborne are an evolution/extension of the jRPG genre, but as far as I'm concerned, they're aRPGs with a high level of difficulty... They're practically their own genre with other developers trying their hand at this style of game like Lords of the Fallen, The Surge , and Nioh with similar level designs with shortcuts to save points, resource system which you lose upon dying and can get back if you manage not to die and fight your way back, high learning/difficulty curve, etc. They most definitely are not jRPGs in any traditional sense.

What the heck, some games aren't RPG, Gravity Rush is an action-adventure game

Persona 5 is definitely best. Personally, id put ffxv in the top 5 as well. Frankly the world is beautiful and creative and the combat is exciting, though sometimes a bit clunky. The story needed work but the episode dlc's were quite great at filling the plot holes. Square also added massive improvenents via free updates. Its so much better now
Noctis Kami (3 months ago)
Just because the game is made in japan is not a jrpg lol
Jay Nartz (3 months ago)
Yuck action rpg. I still want the traditional rpg like tales of berseria, persona and final fantasy.

Kwstas Askotis (2 months ago)
hah , okay i will keep you posted
Shin Megami Tensei (2 months ago)
Kwstas Askotis Try it,you dont will stop liking fallout but of course u will agree that Persona is better.Comment here after u play the game please,i really want to see what u will say.
Kwstas Askotis (2 months ago)
i guess i will give it a try when i have some spare time . but i will still love fallout 4 forever
Shin Megami Tensei (2 months ago)
Kwstas Askotis Yes man,play Persona 5 and u will be Surprised,will love it. Do u know how a game have to be good for be Zelda rival????(wasnt exactly a Rival but in Goty prize was the only game who had a chance with Zelda).Dark Souls and fallout are excellent games but Persona 5 is Better,trust me i already played both Ds and Fallout and i Affirm that P5 is better.But for u discover it u have to play it. So stop losing time and go Play Persona 5,u will have hours of fun with some better stories in ever will see in a game.I Affirm it
Kwstas Askotis (2 months ago)
this sound really honest but is it even better than fallout 4 :0

Persona 5 isn't only the best J-RPG in years, it also one of the best RPG EVER, this game did so much for the RPG industry, I couldn't be more happy.. Well deserved RPG of the year award, I think that it was the only good one with Nier for the best soundtrack, the rest of the ceremony was a pure joke.

Anyone curious about dragon quest its beautiful game thats like having harvest moon on playstation again :D .... I was kinda hoping to find games that interested me on this list, not all the obvious overhyped mainstream games(except p5 and disg) =.=
SkyLizard MsArianna (7 months ago)
Jrpgs are the best games you can get for any these consoles. A lot of the modern realistic games get dull and boring including some the realistic warrior ones they snuck into this video just because is Japan. I avoid those realistic games all together. Bunch of cheap realistic iPhone mmo looks to them.

Do they have to use a Japanese PS4 version to play Japanese games
ShainCake (7 months ago)
Uhm... most of these games don't really look like JRPGs.
KimCheeWarrior (7 months ago)
i swear kids these days misuse the term "jrpg" way too much. just because its an rpg and its japanese produced doesnt mean its a jrpg, lol
Gareth Holloway (7 months ago)
I find DQ builders to be a bit tedious. Gorgeous to look at but tedious in many ways.

Gamers Arsenal (8 months ago)
why it feels like honorable mentions are the real jrpg than the one on the list. don't get me wrong all games listed here are fantastic it so sad that jrpg now becoming a niche genre for gaming...
MrHohum9 (8 months ago)
"And a sound track so jazzy, you'll never see it coming" i see what you did there. either way if you dont have Persona 5 yet wtf are you doing its amazing
Sea Level Cain (8 months ago)
Persona 5 by far. This is the ideal type of JRPG. But Dragon Builders is super fun too.
Franco Digi (8 months ago)
PERSONA 5.
TheRedX (8 months ago)
Bloodborne and all that other stupid crap are not jrpgs. They are two button games where the "strategy" is when to press the dodge button and when to press the attack button. Theyre action games with some rpg elements. If they are jrpgs then so is god of war because you use orbs to raise ur stats and improve abilities.
JMC JOSE (8 months ago)
I'm sure persona 5 is solid as well as some others but I just can't get over the gay ass 8 yr old animation. Characters look corny as hell and make it feel like a little kids game.

NoobZ LifeDXD When the game stops holding your hand and prolonging the game with several down time it's turnbased combat is fun.

What about persona 5 not very thorough
Linh Dinh (9 months ago)
I totally agree with #1 Persona 5. Haven't played such a great JRPG game since PS2 age. Been spending more than 100hrs in Persona 5 and still loving it. Nioh in my opinion is pretty good too. Reminds me of Onimusha.
Shin Megami Tensei (2 months ago)
Linh Dinh When u say since Ps2 games u are Talking about Persona 4,3,Nocturne and Smt spin offs right??? Relax im joking,Ps2 have a lot of great Jrpgs.But i like more Persona and Smt Series
Luis Rios (9 months ago)
I own a PC because I wanted to, a Xbox because it was the console all my friends had, and recently just got a PS4 Pro exclusively for Persona 5

XxDrJewxX (9 months ago)
Many people would not consider most of the games presented here as JRPGs, this is almost the same list as regular RPGs you already made a few months ago.

No matter how liberal our definition of JRPG seems to be, unfortunately, The Witcher III still doesn't count. :)

Action games are rpgs? :/ This video isn't accurate
whatoplay (10 months ago)
We made some mistakes on the categorization. We'll stick to game developer tags next time to be sure.
Phantom Joker (10 months ago)
Gravity Rush 2 isn't a JRPG it's more of an action/adventure type still sleeper hit of the year
Obito Nagato (10 months ago)
NieR: Automata is awesome. Can't get enough of it.
