Some people dig the traditional random battle, turn-based JRPG. I know a number of people who loved Blue Dragon because it was the exact same game that has been around since the NES days.
I myself have pretty much lost interest in the JRPG genre. The last one I actually finished was FFXII and I haven't played even one of the current gen ones.
I guess after over 20 years of them, I just don't have the desire anymore to play through these 60+ hour games that are essentially the same game with a different cast. Despite how awesome Persona 3 was, I got 45 hours into it and got bored. I just tried a replay of SMT Nocturne which was my favorite JRPG of the last generation and I got bored after about 30 hours. I guess I just don't like em anymore, even the same games I used to love (FFIV, FFVI, Lunar, Earthbound, etc..).
That being said, I will still check out Persona 4, FFXIII and Chrono Trigger DS, but I don't know if I will finish any of them and I don't care about any of the other games in the genre coming out (even Including FFIV DS).
Our battle against the man has been brought to an end by Kung Fu Treachery. Brother, your death will not go unavenged. Fiendish Dr Wu, you done fucked up now!!
