As I get older, I increasingly think about how young kids grow up with a totally different set of "things that are cool" than I did. And it occurs to me that we're now well past the era of JRPGs being that new hotness, between them really coming into their own in the SNES era, then gaining cutscene craziness in the PS1 era, and then further refinement in the PS2 era.
The 360/PS3 era has seen a decline in JRPG notability in the West, as fewer of them made it to consoles, instead opting for development on the handheld consoles. So it occurs to me that people in, say, the 6-15 age range may not really have any memories of JRPGs at their height, and now that there are a bunch of Western devs making console and PC games, it makes me wonder whether JRPGs are even remotely on the radar for young people these days.
So feel free to answer the question in the thread title, and share any other opinion on the topic.
