Myself, I am into JRPGS, its weird for me because I would call my self a 'casual' gamer, I don't get heavily into alot games like most people I come into contact with on this and other sites, I can't sit there spending hours trying to get to max level on an mmorpg, I can't play for long stretches of time on games that we all know such as GTA, COD, Battlefield, Halo, Skyrim, and when I do try to sit down and play these games I tend to get bored pretty quickly.
However, I cannot figure out for the life of my why this doesn't happen with me to JRPGS. This genre tends to be very hardcore, difficult to follow and requires extra patience to enjoy, yet why do I enjoy these so much and not all the other games I just mentioned?
Granted, there are many games in the JRPG genre that I do not enjoy, but for some reason I can sit there for hours and play and enjoy games like Tales of vasperia, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Final Fantasy (Not so much XIII), Star Ocean plus many others.
So yeah, thats one genre I never thought I would ever enjoy due to my nature, my busy lifestyle and the fact that I can't get into all these other blockbuster games, I would of never thought for a second I could get into the JRPG genre.
So does anyone else have any stories to share? Any genres you never knew you would enjoy but some how do? I would be curious in finding out : )
