    In this short survey (5-10 min) you will be asked a few questions about your opinions on certain aspects of JRPGs. As an aspiring RPG developer (only as a hobby at the moment) this information will help me determine what kind of games people like to see. As this is information that would be interesting to a lot of people, after a few weeks I will post the results on reddit.com/r/jrpg and rpgmakerweb.com forums.

    Your data will of course handled anonymously. Thank you so much if you decide to fill out this survey!

    Here is the link to the survey:

    EDIT: The survey is now closed, so that I can focus on analysing the results. I will let you know what I came up with in a few weeks.

    Thanks both of you. Responses are coming in from Reddit and this forum in larger volumes than I could've hoped for. By the end I think we'll have a pretty insightful set of data, which I will of course post here.

    There, finished it for you.

    Though, to be quite honest... I'm not sure why there's even a distinction. For me, RPG's are RPG's...

    I filled in the survey as well. I'm curious about the results!
    (Also, the first question is the hardest. I need to choose one?! :stickytongue:)

    I think that some of the questions (like "which features/qualities are important" or "how long should a JRPG be") are highly dependent on the game and its goals, with some answers being absolutely right for some JRPGs and completely wrong for other JRPGs.

    Having said that, maybe it will still be interesting) to see which aesthetics of play people naturally gravitate to (especially interesting will be whether there is a high correlation between peoples' favorite series and what they think is "important" in a JRPG).

    Took the survey, and it will be a pleasure to check out the results when you release them! :)

    Done. You've covered a lot of aspects in this, ranging from story settings to game components to gameplay mechanics, so that's good. I came to realise that a lot of the staples of JRPGs as far as mechanics go are so overdone (grinding, random encounters, job system, etc). I don't think I've given a score of 5 to any of them.
    Would be interesting to see the final results. :)

    Looking forward to the results.

    Filled in. Good questions and, above all, good choice of answers.

    Filled as well, although I mostly played a lot more WRPGs than the J counterpart. So if everyone here struggle to a pick choice for the first question, me here not sure what to pick.

    Good luck in your investigation, I love polls and I am especially curious to know what is the aesthetics of the game that interests most people.
