After a tremendous 2017, Japanese role-playing games were due for some regression, and that’s exactly what happened this year. There were no all-time classics like Persona 5 or Nier Automata in 2018.

Yet it was a decent year for the genre, and we got some JRPGs that I enjoyed quite a bit.


From Tales to Dragon Quest to a brand flippin' new Persona, this has been a stellar year for Japanese role-playing games. We've come a long way from the dark days of, like, 2012.
