I actually never really wore helmets unless I knew I was going into a heavy combat situation. Makes me look more heroic.

Hoods are better, IMO. They're badass and generally have some sort of magical ability.

I never wear helmets for that reason. I spent an hour making that ************** face, I'll be damned if those NPCs don't see it

That's what I loved (one of many things) about Dragon Age: Origins. The "hide helmet" option, but still gave you the effects of the helmet.

Especially when it doesn't allow for spaces, or the name you've got in mind needs more letters than that is allowed.

Pic little bit related, it's (sort of) my character in an RPG when I reach highest level.

But amegaara said that jrpgs are the ones with no customization options
User avatar #47 to #44 - Nihatclodra (04/09/2013) [-]
My bad, I misread his comment. And technically, an RPG from Japan is not necessarily a JRPG. They are 2 different Genres (though some people don't think so): so it's possible that he was talking about JRPGs as a genre (Final Fantasy, Persona, Devil Survivor, Lost Odyssey, etc), rather than simply RPGs from Japan.
User avatar #518 to #516 - Nihatclodra (04/10/2013) [-]
The main difference between them is:
1) JRPGs tend to have a set storyline and characters.
2) JRPGs tend to have little to no Customization of characters. Usually at most a palette swap and custom name.
3) JRPGs tend to have anime-esque graphical art.
4) JRPGs tend to have turn-based combat.

Then don't die. The game is fair and only has one or two cheap deaths in it. Pay attention and be cautious.

Actually, I believe that JRPG isn't used for Japanese games, but for the style. This is just a RPG, not a JRPG.
#270 to #183 - azraelthemage (04/09/2013) [-]
JRPG literally stands for Japanese Role Playing Game.
User avatar #286 to #270 - vicsix (04/09/2013) [-]
I know. I mean, that even though Demon Souls is Japanese, it is not a JRPG, because JRPG is based on a style, not by region.

No it's not, It's a cartoon.

You're logic is flawed.
You're logic is flawed.
User avatar #368 to #353 - vicsix (04/10/2013) [-]
They're two different genres. Your argument is flawed.
User avatar #380 to #368 - guitarassassin (04/10/2013) [-]
By that logic, then Mario and Crash Bandicoot are two different genres because they're from two different regions.
User avatar #386 to #380 - vicsix (04/10/2013) [-]
Video games aren't cartoons.
User avatar #389 to #386 - guitarassassin (04/10/2013) [-]
Then tell me. Why are JRPGs and WRPGs separate genres? Better yet, why do you think JRPG is a play style rather than a reference to who made it? By that logic, LotR: Third Age is a JRPG just because most JRPGs are turn based.
User avatar #391 to #389 - vicsix (04/10/2013) [-]
It's the art style, the turn-based combat, and the inability to change your character.
User avatar #407 to #391 - guitarassassin (04/10/2013) [-]
That is the stupidest argument I've heard. Borderlands has stylized graphics. Like I mentioned earlier. LotR: Third Age is turn based, and I'm assuming you mean changing the look of your character aesthetically. In which case, that's a design choice, and WRPGs have done it as well in the past.
User avatar #530 to #529 - Nihatclodra (04/14/2013) [-]
... that wikipedia page is for Japanese Tabletop RPGs... not videogames.
User avatar #532 to #530 - guitarassassin (04/16/2013) [-]
Still applies.
User avatar #541 to #532 - Nihatclodra (04/30/2013) [-]
Let's just agree to disagree. I know I'm right, You know you're right: thus neither of us are willing to concede...
User avatar #534 to #532 - Nihatclodra (04/16/2013) [-]
"JRPG" can be used for any RPG from Japan, but generally it is used to describe types of RPGS that are generally unique to Japan: like ones that have anime-styled art.
User avatar #540 to #534 - guitarassassin (04/30/2013) [-]
No, the term "JRPG" is a reference to the games origin. Same goes for the difference between Anime and Cartoons.

When ever I make a character in Saints Row 3 or The Sims 3, I make them look awful.
But in Fallout 3 and Skyrim, I make them look badass, even though in Fallout 3 and Skyrim you barely see them. And in Saints Row 3 and The Sims, you see them all the time.

Well games like Bioshock and Fallout 3/NV combine the two genres. But if I had to pick between the two genres I guess I'd pick RPGs. Most FPS games get boring pretty quick, I have more fun running around swinging an axe at stuff, than just shooting at stuff. But a bad RPG can be just as ****** as a bad FPS. I guess my real answer would just be neither, I just play games I think are good I don't worry about the genres.
