What sort of RPG player are you?

    I don't feel harvest moon is a real thing, or if it is, it isn't really popular...

    ARPG, the Souls series would be the best example. I also enjoy JRPGs such as Bravely Default and Fire Emblem. 

    Lots of people seem to have a problem with the Japanese art style, I really don't, too bad though, if you can't get past the art style you'll never see how great these games are.

    An RPG can't have any fighting whatsoever? That is probably the most stupid thing I have ever heard.

    No, I'm saying action includes fights, and about 99% of all RPG's have fights in them, so the term ARPG is pointless. :)

    I never said ANYTHING about ARPG. But saying an RPG can't be an RPG because it has fighting in it is stupid.

    "Name me 1 RPG that doesn't count as an action game.... and if you say something like the Sims I will internet pimp slap you cause that is a life simulator, you take no role in the game"

    Here he is saying to name on RPG that doesn't have action. I gave him three examples, which he dismissed since they have fighting in them. So therefore action = fighting, which the majority of RPGs have which by his logic, RPGs can't be RPGs if they have action in them

    Planescape Torment can be solved a lot less violently, if you don't care much for action. Did I mention it being the most immersive game ever? 

    I always try to find a different, non violent solution. Mostly because they seem much more elegant.

    I prefer the original ff tactics from PS1. The FFTA and FFTA2 story is a bit childish to me.

    I started off with Choose Your Own Adventure books like Jackson and Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy series. This led to table top rpgs like Rolemaster, D&D and Dragonlance 5th Age. I briefly played Pendragon but not enough to thoroughly understand it. Still, I'd love to spend more time with it because it forces you to roleplay. Sadly, I have no roleplay friends any more.

    My intro to video gaming rpgs was Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance for the original Xbox at least I think this was the first western rpg I played. I never could get into JRPGs. When KotOR came out it pretty much fulfilled all my dreams and I grabbed Jade Empire shortly after. It goes without saying that back in the day I was really looking forward to Mass Effect, and here we are many years later and I am still looking forward to Mass Effect
