Gamers are by and large some the most opinionated people in the world. In GeekBack, we try to ride that lightning by asking you a question about the industry or gaming media. Think of it as an invitation to voice your views, give us feedback, or jump down a stranger’s throat on the Internet.
Once upon a time, the Land of the Rising Sun was once considered the undisputed king of the role-playing genre. While there are more than a few people who still consider that to be the case, Western RPGs (that is, RPGs made pretty much anywhere outside of Japan) have been taking the spotlight more and more in recent years. There are a lot of reasons for this, and not all of them are simple. So, the question we pose to you today is:
Do you favor JRPGs or WRPGs? Tell us why you think Commander Shepard could beat Cloud Strife’s whiney ass (or why he couldn’t!).
