    Well in region terms there are W(estern)RPG's and J(apanese)RPG's

    In genre terms there are T(urn)B(ased)RPG, Action RPG, Strategy RPG and C(ard)G(ame)RPG. Probably more I haven't mentioned.

    All of the western world. US and Europe.

    Card rpg's are those like Baten Kaitos, where attacks are based on the draw of a deck of cards.

    Alright that makes sense. I guess that Baten would it be similar to MGS acid or Yggdra union both used cards (but werent really RPG).

    I think Emerald has pretty much covered all the major types of RPG. Although I would add MMO and Dungeon crawlers to the list. I also would wonder if people would consider Way of the Samurai an RPG, I mean sure it doesn't have the exact same stat progression, but it has stat building through sword upgrades as well as you having full interactivity with the outcome of the world. In some ways it does a better job of jumping into the role of your character then most games.

    I actually think WRPG and JRPG are some of the worst terms you can use. It makes terrible assumptions about games and normally is a relatively outdated term.

    I would definitely say Way Of The Samurai series is a type of rpg. Very good games and also very underrated. Way Of The Samurai 3 was/is great, really looking forward to the fourth.

    Graphically the 4th looks terrible, BasementDude and rockstar were talking about these earlier. They're normally bigfans but seemed a bit put off i'll look into 4 when it gets closer to release, if we ever get it.

    Graphics aren't the be all of a game, if the story is good and the gameplay is good then graphics come 3rd. I've never been a graphics whore so this a minor thing for me.
    We are getting it. I was under the impression that Rising Star were publishing it but it's NIS America that are publishing it in Europe? How weird is that? lol.

    Graphics don't bother me, but honestly none of the games have had me as entertained as the original which is a huge shame. They need to think of a better angle.
