Saw this image on Reddit earlier today. Wanted to share it, but cleaned up the artwork a little bit before doing so. OCD to the rescue!

    Lol totally agree with the RPG half of this comic! That’s all I ever play is mostly RPGs.

    Meh, making a custom character tends to be more available (and deeper) in Western RPGs, so I take issue with the Japanese on the box.

    Also, holy crap an infographic that isn’t going to start a fight!

    And then you play with the character for three hours, get tired of it and create a new one.
    Rinse and repeat 4-5 times.

    Then you actually start playing the game.

    And then you equip a helmet and some armor and never see your customizations ever again.

      The most important part in Monster Hunter is your character’s voice.

      You need something that won’t make you claw your ears off after 10 minutes.

    It left out the “100 hours later”, FPS: “Ooooh, Call of Battle 6 is out!” RPG:”Finally got my completion score up to 75%!”

    For most JRPGs, its more like; 4 Hours Later: "Yay! I finished half/a quarter of the prologue/tutorial!"…I'm looking at YOU, Final Fantasy XIII…
