You must choose /v/.
You must completely erase one of these series from history. If you don't No other RPG will ever come to the market ever again!
Doing so will erase every single game, and spin off, as well as every media branch, (Anime, toys etc.) It will be as if it never existed.
Which do you kill off, and why?
Final Fantasy. Because then Square would have died back on the NES and Enix probably would have filled the void with even more Dragon Quest sales. Leading to more support in the west. Not to mention the dozen or so other Enix properties which are now dying under SquareEnix thumb.
You had a nice run, FF. It's time to let you go.
Tales Of, not necessarily because I dislike it, but because I haven't really had any notably memorable experiences with the series beyond playing Symphonia like 99 times.
>FF:CC, FFT, FFTA, etc.
>SMT, Persona, basically the theming of the franchises as a whole
Erase Final Fantasy. The first two games were decent, but the rest felt a tad underwhelming. FFXIV is decent fap material though.
Pokemon would be close second if I considered only my current opinions, but I believe that Pokemon has its place in the childhoods of many, both in the past and present.
Yeah, 4 moves but a huge list of different combinations between 6 Pokémon.
Compare that to your typical jrpg, where you just stick to the real end game stuff and call it a day.
But there would be no SMT for them to be fans of, which would mean they'd never be fans in the first place.
In fact, they'd find other outlets like girl's cartoons because of the lack of emo weeb in their diet.
Congratulations anon. You singlehandedly gave birth to goth bronies.
Of this list, Final Fantasy is the only series actively hurting other series. Mostly stuff like Dragon Quest, Chrono, Mana, SaGa and anything else owned by SquareEnix that isn't Fina Fantasy.
Dragon Quest is doing better than it ever has. Just isn't getting released outside Japan.
Pokemon is crazy successful. But not really hurting other series.
I dislike Tales games for their mechanics and weak stories. But it also is such a small fraction of the JRPG market, its not even worth mentioning. SMT is also a niche series which doesn't effect much. Difference is, both these series still get western releases.
Pokemon. Erase Pokemon and you can prevent more kids turning into autists like the faggots in /vp/. It will also remove similarly annoying tourneyfags who take it too seriously.
>never played it
>so it should die
Dude, Tales of has over 20+ games, all the RPG series' listed in the OP do.
I wouldn't call that minor at all, only other thing to remotely come close is Atellier
You could trash all of them...
However I would be sad if somehow Trigger and Cross were effected by this
Dragon Quest, because why does SE get to have two reps?
Dragon Quest Monsters have all the things Pokemon has, but also allows your Monstersto learn any amount of moves they can. Add in the fusion system and you can have monsters with 100+ moves.
The whole 4 move thing for Pokemon is a weak form of balancing a game with 700+ Pokemon. And even then, Pokemon is still the most broken RPG out there. Where only about 100 Pokemon are worth using at all.
Digimon would rise to take its place, is that what you really want?
