I’ll be honest, I was never a big fan of Digimon. Back in the day, it was the Pokemon rip-off anime to me. Even though Pokemon was a kid’s show too, Digimon seemed to skew even younger and it just didn’t appeal to me. I did like Pokemon for a while, but eventually grew tired of that. That left no room in my world for Digimon.
With that said, I am a huge fan of turn based JRPGs. The industry now favors action JRPGs since that is what the fans seem to gravitate towards. Actions JRPGs are all well and good, but to me, real JRPGs are turn based and always will be. Because of that, I’m able to give the newest Digimon game, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, a lot of respect for bringing a classic mechanic back into the JRPG realm."
