  1. I hear JRPGs games are much more combat focus.With rich and innovative enemies and more linear story.I hear JRPGs have really long main stories. The JRPGs more story-driven.

    Where WRPGs are more about quests and better open world..But lack rich and innovative enemies.

    JRPG's typically take 50+hrs to play, and is turn-based combat, with minimal graphics emphasis. Western RPGs are just 'RPG' as you know them - e.g. Skyrim, Fallout.

    Pretty much what stickman said, but I wouldnt agree about the graphics necessarily, JRPGs are a lot less popular than they were between the days of SNES and PS1/2 so there arent as many to compare to westerns rpgs like skyrim

    JRPGS generally follow a linear story line with story driven characters. They are also usually turn based games. Usually they are told more like a story or movie.

    WRPGS are usually more open ended with more choice making and character interaction. Game mechanics can be much more similar to other genres (With exception of games like Neverwinter Nights and Wizardry), Mass Effect 2 could be considered a Third-Person shooter

    Wrpgs use the same formula for everygame. its all the same with just diffrent skins and genre
    jrpgs change the battle system and try different things with it.
    wrpgs change nothing and its all the same.
