no, i don't think so.
i enjoyed old jrpgs on the snes, but nowdays the genre is just a cashcow. developers aren't willing to try anything new beyond adding arbitrary combat modifiers, designs are usually about adding lots of useless accessories like belts and zippers on the asymmetric costumes of bishounen type characters (in order to make the game popular with yaoi fanwhores) with childlike shounen main mentalities. grinding itself seems to be some sort of shounen stereotype, since i always feel like being on the way to namek while walking up and down on the map in order to fight some monsters. plots are cheesy and overly melodramatic, usually with some coming of age romance between teenagers thrown in. playing modern jrpgs feels like watching bleach, maybe mixed up with a bit of code geass or gundam seed destiny. and i can't even do anything about my main character's retarded behaviour, i have to endure it for the whole game. no, thanks.
