@Areus Exactly. It's a flawed philosophy. That philosophy basically states that it's only kids who play games - we know that's untrue.

In fact these days I would strongly argue its Adults keeping the likes of FF afloat. Ain't no way my kids circle of friends would be seen dead playing ff15.

Games genres fall in and out of favour over time I suppose, JRPGs could always make a comeback

@kyleforrester87 Yes they could if they could put the same amount of effort into there stories and characters that they do for their fan service most of them could even leave niche status

69 pages is impressive. Final Fantasy 12 had 46 Pages and ff13 had 51. but by the time we got to Final Fantasy XV we had no instruction manual. The same is true of almost all PS4 games. @themcnoisy

I’d say Nier is an absolutely awesome modern JRPG!

@themcnoisy I think it has more to do with the Japanese market. I remember reading somewhere that Japan likes to remember the more fun or carefree days of their youth in anime and games than they like stuff about adults.

@Jaz007 That needs to change. Kids these days get everything. Lol.

@Jaz007 They're right to a degree. I often shy away from playing games which feature something that could be experienced in the real world, generally favouring fantastical and more often science fiction based settings.

@kyleforrester87 JRPG's need to make a comeback. In the shape of Skies of Arcadia remake, specifically. I'd even accept a Rogue Galaxy remake at this point.

@themcnoisy I’m still young enough that it doesn’t bother me. FFXV comes across as young (or transitioning) adults to me so it feels like they’re about my peers or close enough.

I don't think there is a problem.

i just wish most jrpgs still had the charm and magic of games like Secret of Mana Threads of Fate Suikoden Skies of Arcadia Shadow Hearts or even Grandia and Wild Arms there are some Gems out today but not as many as we used to get

@Frigate i’d love to play SoA again 😬

@Kidfried I do agree generally, it’s not that JRPGs are bad these days, to me this topic is more about “why is final fantasy not as popular as it used to be” and that’s down to both changing tastes and SE being pretty rubbish with the franchise.

For me they are just too big. 100+hr games are just unreasonable for myself. Also nearly every other game claims to be an "rpg" is one way or another now mainly because of the grind and the, as mentioned, ridiculous amount of time needed to just play the story.

i'm another that thinks they're often just too big. for me, horizon zero dawn was just about the perfect length, and that had great combat. for skyrim, i got bored of it about 65 hours in.. the gameplay is pretty clunky imo, and even after 65 hours, there were just so many icons on the map, quests listed in the log, with no obvious means of telling which is the optimal order to do things without go back and forth over the map several times. i actually find having several quest narratives often struggles to tell a compelling overall narrative (that you might get from shorter or linear games), as the pacing can be all over the place depending on what you decide do. often the gameplay loop just isn't fun enough (skyrim, witcher 3, assassin's creed origins), in my opinion, to play it for a 100+ hours.

I agree with everyone that says time is an issue but I also find myself thinking about all the hours I put into PES, Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator, for example. I'd suggest it's more an issue of how compelling the gameplay is on a personal level.

Alot of Rpgs today are more of Collectathon and Grindfest Variety to mostly pad out game time and to keep you from finshing the game to fast
