If you used any Vocation other than Figther or Warrior, you didn't beat the game.

>What went wrong?
Doubling down on the open world meme instead of focusing on the game's potential as a dungeon crawler.
Doubling down on the open world meme and then using an engine that isn't built for open worlds and then not optimizing it to handle open worlds.
Not firing Itsuno and not putting Kinoshita in charge of the project.
>or right?
I think giving all of the vocations unique weapons was a good idea (I never played Mystic Knight in DD1). I like the improved physics from RE engine.

>no proper hard mode

>all the good loot is found primarly on shops, instead of the world and dungeons
>main quest relies heavily on the player knowing well the lore of the previous game and also doing plenty of side quests to learn about the state of the world (as the main quest barely explains anything about the lore and the characters)

are there any rpgs that have really good writing? the more I look at many of these rpgs and the classics out there, I realize that a lot of them just have really mediocre or bland writing. I see so many people claim that rpgs are mostly well known for stories or writing but I only see a few games that are well acclaimed for their writing. I already know of games like lets say shadow run dragonfall I think, disco elysium, and planescape torment.

Mass Effect series
Fallout series without Bethesda

In Japanese:
Xenogears
Final Fantasy 6-10
Nier series

>>3497492
I really think Final Fantasy XIV is underrated. It gets off to a slow start, but what appears at first to be a "power of friendship" story actually confronts the player character with some pretty brutal reality checks by the time Stormblood rolls around. I've read some books and I've seen some movies that capture the hero's journey, but I've rarely ever played a game that made me FEEL like a hero. Someone who carries on with little expectation of reward, who has a real connection with what he's trying to protect. It makes you feel the gut-punch when something you've been working for an entire expansion to build is ripped away from you. There's bits of this game that get PERSONAL. Even the most diehard "I never role-play my character" casuals change their tune by the end of Stormblood, unless they're WoWfags who skip straight to the endgame content and then spend the rest of their lives grinding forever.

Chrono Trigger. It’s a shame that game never got a sequel. But hey, at least that’s better than getting a really bad sequel with a half-baked combat system, dozens of useless characters and a story that deliberately tries to spite fans of the original. I’m so glad that never happened to Chrono Trigger.
>>
>>3500645
>and a story that deliberately tries to spite fans of the origina
That part isn't true.
>>
>>3500645
The funniest part of that is if you go into any game dev thread on this site or in indie forums in general, everyone who is actually autistic enough to sit there making any amount of game play all has the same natural inclinations that the Chrono Cross team had. Bloated "genre defying" combat that is an absolute chore to deal with, awful "deconstructed" writing tropes, character bloat out the ass when they don't even have 4 good concepts to fill up a single main party with, etc.

The problem with video game development is that it's full of video game developers. These tasteless spergs are more interested in coding than sitting there and thinking out what would actually be fun for their players, and inevitably they fart out a steaming pile of shit. Genuinely goos successful games are so few and far between because the personalities who know enough to focus on fun and easily understood playing experience first, defying genres distant second aren't involved in video game development or they're not in leadership positions to dictate what the game should and shouldn't have.

This is also why MMORPGs aren't actually RPGs, there is no consequence and no reactivity for any action.
Even the slightest differences in choice like one faction having paladins and the others not having them was too much for whiny players and lazy cut and paste tuning devs.
Even the racial choices were all but removed other than cosmetically, same with the crafting bonuses.

Just a twitch gacha grinder after a while, with bad action mechanics since it's still tab target.

So will it ever come out or is it a doomed project?
I just hope they'll make the role-playing elements more important than the fights. Let's hope the atmosphere will be as good as in the first one.

Building the whole thing on V5 might be unwise, though. Maybe I'm just too old-fashioned, loving the Revised Edition too much.
And one more thing: this time they better finish it...

The first game's success was lightning in a bottle and a product of a different time. There is a 0.0% chance any contemporary studio regardless of how many (or little) As it has can make a fun, well written, and memorable VtM game. It will have bland generic combat and gameplay full of FOTM mechanics that will age like shit, woke nonsense storytelling with shit writing, and zero likeable characters. Even if they hit it out of the park, gaymers have devolved so much it won't make a big enough splash for time+money invested and will be the permanent death of the series.

If it's a genuinely great game and a smashing success great, but it won't be.

Durge doesn't remember shit and Karlach was a retard before going to hell
>>
>>3500509
He doesn't remember biographical details, but he knows basic facts about the world so he would know about Sharrans. Karlach would for sure know, given that she was somewhat connected to BG politics serving as Gortash's bodyguard.

It's not as if Sharrans are obscure anyway, the only reason Lae'zel wouldn't know is because she hasn't been to the material plane before the events of the game.

Karlach is literally a retard. there is a good chance she wouldn't know and you can RP durge either way pretty easily about what her would or wouldn't know

You really wouldn't need a very high int score to know about them and that they're universally bad news, all you would have to do is look at Ketheric Thorm and the shadow curse.

I always found it weird that paladins had all the power removing strictures literally by in game mechanics but it's hard for me to remember clerics ever having that even though it would make even more sense for them.

Now it's gotten even looser with paladins literally getting their powers from their oath and no longer the gods like my paladin Jethrondrius of Family Dollar who promised to pay some nigger back tree fiddy before he dies.

As long as he gets the best five finger discounts and most gold to save up in the face of his fentanyl and pipeweed habits he will honor his lifelong oath and continue to smite orcs and 304s.

What's the best power fantasy RPG?

Not necessarily one with the best story, but just the one that gives you a template and really lets you feel like you can be or become the strongest motherfucker in the world?
Just completely unashamed "holy shit its him" rpg, the kind that will talk to you about legendary figures just so you can many dozens of hours later beat them up yourself for their title.
