Interested to learn what quest in an RPG stuck with you for being truly fun and inventive: something far away from "kill five orcs" or "retrieve ten wolf pelts" and other, similar fetch quests which while staples, grow tiresome and certainly aren't innovative. What game was it, what was the quest, and what made it worthwhile?

Off the top of my head I remember Arcanum having quests that were challenging with little to no hints, multiple ways of completing them, and often working to flesh out the game's lore all at the same time

It may look like shit but it will offer a choice of real RPG (that is realtime) combat instead of strategy game combat, which is so rare these days. It also takes inspiration from the best RPG of all time, BG1. Hopes, fears, dreams?

Is there a reason why most JRPGs give you dialog options when they don't change the outcome of the story? DQ8 is a good example. If I say "No" the game forces me to say "Yes".

Most dialogue options in JRPGs affect scenes with certain characters. FFX for example, has a hidden meter that, depending on player choice affects who Tidus will have a cutscene convo with later in the game. But yeah, the devs want to tell their story. WRPGs are no different.

I'll add that these worst thing has to be watching my autistically trained up cats get fucking 3 tapped on those stupid ass trials. Completely resistant to any and all strategy other than hoping they don't get targeted before I finish setting up by turn 3.

They're not as frustratingly head bangingly difficult to use as FFL. But they certainly don't feel as good in that game once you get a couple of playthroughs under your belt and start routing through the few dozen permutations that are worth a damn.

>"why aren't you using a human".
Because it's an RPG and sometimes I do not want to use a human and prefer playing with monsters' mechanics, winning isn't important, it's how you get there that's fun.
>A cat with the best in slot selection ends the game with 38s and one 50.
True, but you also have people like Kina who have skewed defenses here and there like his enourmous Pierce defense, not saying they couldn't be balanced better, this is one reason why it sucks not having monster forms because you're hard locked to a resistance set that can't be meaningfully customized and more often than not it's only good for a vanilla run, which is against the spirit of this particular entry.
Not to mention, mechs do end up having better resistances, but require a lot more resource investment since they're tied to equipment, and they really don't get much in the way of actual resistances until several cycles in where you can rock fully upgraded equipment and/or strong unique items like a Lohengrin+2 or a Magellanica, mechs do win out in the long run but that's kind of its own situation that opens up many questions that aren't purely limited to monsters vs mechs scenarios as the hardest content in the game is exceedingly human biased.
>Then there's the eternal issue of not having protects, emerald union is no fucking joke.
Yeah, this is something that really riles me up as well because how you actually measure up against that varies A LOT on who you're playing as.
Siugnas has it easy because he can just rely on his brokenass Sanguine Gear that makes him a demigod, add some OD% boosters with certain weapon selections+Leading The People and you're looking at him instantly giving EVERYONE 30%+ ATK and probably triggering two ODs every single round, meaning you can outrun the Emeral Union clock pretty handily, everyone else is much worse off because they can't rely on anything as powerful as that, even with Siugnas as a party member since he's gimped by his 9LP pool.

This is why I've been saying that I want to move on from the current system.
Yes, it might be arguably more "strategic" and tight than what we had before, but it ends up too strict in terms of what is viable and what isn't especially when it comes to harder content, it kills the RPG side of the games when there's simply one or two objectively correct solutions and everything else is either wrong or horribly subpar, it doesn't feel like I'm making a team and roleplaying, it's more like a series of tests on whether I know what they wanted me to do on certain encounters or not and if I choose something that isn't the intended solution I get fucked for no good reason.
This is an even bigger issues in this game because races, by definition, cannot work by the same rules and cannot be too similar in what they do, otherwise what would even be the point of having them?
Such a system that is focused on very strict strategy doesn't really work well around that side of roleplaying, granted, some of the issues that are there such as the weird restrictions on monster skills available to us and how relics are handled are not directly related to the system's nature, they're just mistakes that could be easily fixed, but when you look at the big picture it's hard to make all the races viable in all possible configurations, the game is simply not designed for that sort of stuff at a basic level, from the fact that recruiting is way more convoluted to the basic battle mechanics.

Which I guess it's okay if you consider how this game really wants you to go with the flow rather than making long term plans, but it's hard to reconcile it with what we used to do in previous entries, and it's especially hard to accept when engaging with the hardest content in the game.
On one hand it's good to have genuinely well thought out battle mechanics that make you think every single round, on the other hand some inherent limitations of this systems are extremely unfun.

Which is weird, because Nomura got all of those SaGa devs to work with him on Versus XIII because they knew how to make combat work with multiple weapon types that wasn't just a blunt sword.

ARPGs are wonderful, and I tend to prefer them. They have a lot of numbers under the hood. The numbers are almost needed to define your character build as ofc without a character build you just have an action game. I suppose you can have categories etc. instead of numbers if numbers trigger you so badly.

You just described removing all the tactical build and engineering considerations of RPGs and replacing them with twitch mechanics and then deemed that higher IQ though. I don't think twitch reflexes are demonstrative of higher IQ in any way.
>>
>>3499764
Not OP but you're wrong. You project numbers onto everything that exists. That doesn't mean that they are numbers. You're confusing the phenomena with the models.
>>
>>3497416
The biggest problem is that character stats are a useful abstraction for resolving dilemmas. You could get away with a no stat system in a TTRPG, since the DM has the flexibility to adjudicate decisions without relying on character stats, but in a CRPG the computer is too inflexible. Your best bet for a video game would be some AI-powered "DM" with a built-in system of rules that are kept out of the players' view.

>The numbers are almost needed to define your character build as ofc without a character build you just have an action game
I think you could probably do something akin to The Witcher 3 perks. In The Witcher 3, you can only have a few perks active at a time. So if you want to make a magic build, you would need to sacrifice your melee skills. To make it as immersive as possible, you would want to remove any in-game menu. There are many ways to do that, but just as a quick example, Cyberpunk has body augmentations. Your body can only be augmented a few times, meaning you can't have every perk. It's the exact same system, but the perks are now integrated into the world rather than being selected in a menu.
>You just described removing all the tactical build and engineering considerations of RPGs and replacing them with twitch mechanics and then deemed that higher IQ though
I said fight IQ. Basically, player skill vs character skill. In Shenmue it's 90% player skill and 10% character skill. So if you're good at fighting games, you're going to be good at Shenmue. Ideally, an RPG would be the opposite. You could be a pro-fortnite player, but if your build is shit, you're going to suck at Fallout. Maybe Sleeping Dogs is a better example because every combo is just 3 buttons. This karate system could be translated into sword or magic combos pretty easily too. Kingdom Come had sword combos, but they were very complex. If it was just X, X, hold X then more people would have enjoyed it.

The shitty ending is the main character deciding to have children when the have spent the entire game hating their life and both her and her partner have had miserable lives that stunted them developmentally (as the game itself states).
