More Terms You Should Know (Console and Japanese RPGs) May 31, 2012

Posted by Maniac in Uncategorized.

Given the subject matter of the next site video is classic Japanese Role Playing Games I thought it was time to talk about a web page that for over ten years I have personally cited back to as the encyclopedia all gamers and game developers should be aware of.

The Grand List of Console Role Playing Game Clichés is a web page which details all the major and minor clichés you will find in most classic role playing games. The site’s focus is on console, or Japanese RPGs, not western, live action, or pen and paper, but just that one genre alone has spawned so many games just reading the clichés almost feels like you’re reading a history article about the whole genre.

The site stopped updating around 2005, and the webmaster stated that he felt comfortable he had found all of them. While its no longer updated the site is still up and active for all to see, and I think it serves as a perfect time capsule for these games and the memories we have playing them.

If you haven’t read it before, check it out. If you have read it before, but just not in a really long time, take a look at it again it’s a great trip down memory lane.

You can expect a new site video later today!
