I should say I'm not a big fan of JRPGs at all, as I just can't see the
appeal in the anime and weird art style that these games have. This is
of course a personal thing, as I know there's millions of JRPG/anime
fans out there. That being said, I DO lof course love RPGs and have played so many of
them over the past several years. I really like getting new powerful
gear and unlocking skills/talents on my character.
I've been looking at playing either Yakuza: Like a Dragon or Dragon Quest XI, but not really sure if either of them will suit what I'm looking for. I keep hearing that some of the unique selling points of Yakuza is that it's "whacky/hilarious, and doesn't take itself too seriously" but it's not really a unique selling point for ME. It's neither here nor there for me really, it doesn't provide any more of an incentive for me to play something based on how "whacky" it is.
Is there anything in particular about either of these two games that is different from other RPGs, apart from the fact that they're JRPG/anime style? Or are they just your basic RPG with a different coat of paint to Western games?
