There are many difference between JRPG and action RPG. let's start of with JRPGs. there are many reasons for JRPGs is the dialogue, the music, and the turned based system. like final fantasy for example. Remember final fantasy x? here's some reasons: Tidus is athletic guy u know. i don't remember playing that game. but i do remember the part when he played blitz ball and making love with yuna. battling monsters, riding chocobos, and even grinding on the rail up in the sky. damn. speaking of final fantasy, let's talk about action RPGs. there's a good reason for action RPGs. it has no turn based system, better dialogue, and better music. just like mass effect and fallout. I played mass effect 3. it was the best game ever. and it even has multiplayer. final fantasy should've got it. well, I think they do!
