@PrismaticMurder I don't understand. what tradition, whose tradition?
@aparrish traditionally jrpgs are made by the japanese. The slice of life aspect of a japanese school system is going to reflected in that.
Aside from that, game devs focus more on action games by default for the US. Traditionally those sell better. Not to say that there couldn't be a western company to make a jrpg style game in a western school system, but since it's outside the norm it's a financial risk.
