each one is different, even remakes and remasters of remakes differ from the originals, the turn-based jrpg combat is the best in the genre, the music is great, the character designs and overall atmospheres and vibes and aesthetics are on point, the stories are impactful (pretty sure saga 1 was the one that began the killing god jrpg trope, and saga 2 and 3 kind if continued it but in those games the "god" you kill wants a fight to the death whereas in saga 1 god is caught by surprise by the willingness of the party to fight him) and because it's comfortable, i know what to expect from a saga game, conversely i don't know what to expect from a kiseki game other than being an incredibly overglorified dating sim visual novel with a jrpg hastily tacked on last minute and that every single entry in the cursed legend of heroes franchise are the worst most bland milquetoast run of the mill middle of the road middling fucking boring ass jrpgs in the history of man, bar none

Nah. Despite what your friend says, he still would have bought it even if it was literally just OG Metroid Prime upcaled.

Your hypothetical fails because the reality is when put side-by-side, he'd still prefer a dolled-up remaster over the OG if given no other option. You underestimate the average intelligence of NEETs turned normalfag, anon.
Ironically enough, he's in the Airforce as an IT guy and fiddles with PCs, but can't into emulation. He's a consoletard "mature games for mature gamers" type at heart.

>People who act like that don't actually have any "real" opinions on anything, they just go along with whatever is new and hyped up and will whatever they need to to justify that.
He just lacks perspective and a critical eye in terms of art, as all average people do. He's been like that since I've met him 2 decades ago. Also this might be me projecting, but this is coming off like 2 parents discussing their child's shit tastes. kek

Don't feel too bad anon, it's not your problem, it's the dev problem 100 percent of the time.
Let us consider simple things like intimidation always being tied to charisma and never strength, or perhaps even dex in the case of an assassin or omae wa mou shindeiru death touch monk.

This is utter bullshit because the 20 str/dex combat monster is guaranteed to be more intimidating than the 20 cha fruity bard.

Other mistakes keep coming up constantly in this similar vein such as religion skill being tied to int and not wis.

They are wrong in making certain stats so utterly dominant outside of combat and it points toward underlying creative bankruptcy when it keeps happening.

Why does this matter? It matters because people shouldn't feel so locked into one way of having a 'face' character. There is absolutely no reason to make a game be a slave to 'realism' because it will never be real so you should instead go for robust opportunity cost tradeoffs that let people succeed with more diverse character builds. It's entirely plausible that wisdom would make you have more of a knack for a religion skill due to direct connection with karma and the gods vs. only a pendantic interpretation of rote memorization of dogma for example.

>it won't be (anywhere) as strong as other builds BUT YO CAN
its because in other games such as this I asked if it was possible to always keep the MC in the party and the usual response was; 'oh you can, realistically speaking it won't anywhere near as powerful if you just went with the usual all-girls team BUT you can!'. In short, its possible but not effective so I was wondering if I could get both in Honkai.

I'll download to check it then, thank you.

I'm genuinely mad about the penacony story because it contains all the elements of a top notch arc, with the falsification of history and the melancholy of forgotten heroes who's land has been overtaken by eternal complacency. Could have been fantastic if told properly.
Instead the way the game tells its story works completely against it. Most of the background information about clockie's cartoon and the official version of history is told through a fucking side event that unlocks after the story is already completed, an entire patch's story has to be wasted on adventurine, a character that's pretty much completely secondary to the plot, because he's the newest character they're trying to sell, and the game's lack of forward thinking prevents us from seeing important members of any of these families beside the only one that turns into a boss later, making the worldbuilding feel artificial.
When aventurine and ratio flatly commented on the trial that has just taken place offscreen, I got so mad. It was a perfect opportunity to show how the family handles justice and politics, but instead of seeing it we have to be told it happened because the game can't spare the budget for such a cutscene. It's pathetic.
HSR and Genshin share the same problem in that they are trying to present a story that is apparently way outside the scope of their budget, but instead of focusing their attention on a few select cool scenes that tell meaningful story beats, we get to walk the streets while NPCs talk at length about things we will never see. It's a problem of their presentation, it's way too wasteful in trying to represent these large 3D spaces that don't really serve any story purpose, so the story ends up being poorly served by the environments and models available. Games that use VN-like portrait dialogs with CGs have an easier time creating the illusion of places and people.
It's a shame.

You don’t do it at a reasonable pace though, that’s the issue. Sometimes the drop rates for things are so poor you’re not going to get them until way way after they become available. The difference in availability by level (when you theoretically get an arte) and by eres stones (when you actually get the arte) can be fucking huge. And there’s a lot of artes you want right when you unlock them or you’re putting yourself at a big disadvantage until that if you don’t grind. Putting them off until you’re in the second half where you might actually get them is just masochistic

Norma a cute. Best girl on the PS2 by a mile

There is a reaper that is destroying all the ships attacking it. Any sort strategy that isn’t focused on destroying it could mean dooming the galaxy. Shepard sacrificing the alliance fleets to help the destiny ascension escape has him put the lives of three politicians above the lives of the entire galaxy. And it’s supposed to be a paragon option. Saving a few of elites is the good boy option. So dumb. The choices in mass effect make nonsense. Just like curing the genocide all because you care about making your friend happy rather than making sure the galaxy wont be engaged in a war to stop the krogan after the reapers are dealt with.

He didn't die, Cerberus had a ship nearby that recovered him and was able to keep his brain alive. I don't remember exactly what explanation TIM gives for the Cerberus ship being there and it would be unreliable anyway. Most of his crew also doesn't survive, you can go back to the planet he got blown up over, go down to the wreckage and recover the dog tags of the crew from the first game that died in the attack.

Paragon/Renagade isn't suppose to be goodboy/badboy (at least in 1). Its more of an idealist/pragmatist dynamic. Yes sacrificing a small number civilians to save the galaxy is the more moral decision, but its also the pragmatic one.

EO4 as that other anon said is good. If you want to try out something more classic in the genre Wizardry Tales of The Forsaken Land is another good starting point imo. Easier than some but still challenging enough for newcomers and vets. If you want something that isn't turn based, check out Legend of Grimrock 1 or 2, both are good. Also Path of The Abyss is a great starting point since it's pretty easy and very enjoyable.

It's a toss up of shallow writing and lazy graphics.

Their characters are all 1-dimensional. There might be 1 brief story segment where they tease potential for depth. Reuniting with a long lost family member or something. No. That's exactly what the formula is. Mileage may vary.

The other component is some invisible grandeur. In Isekai Rando, the villains are piloting an "Asura" statue. Something like that deserves a parallax background, a shadow, a giant foot, or something! But all you'll see is a small blurry 4-armed icon on a map. Then you go into the statue as a dungeon, and it's just more cave, forest, and brick tiles. The later dungeons are always lack luster. BOOOOO.

Use your imagination? Sure. Except there is "The Dungeon" which the bad guys wanted to destroy. But what is "The Dungeon"? I have no idea. It's just a series of areas connected by warp circles. In other games it would at least be a giant tower. I know what an Asura Statue looks like, but I don't know how it was going to attack a nebulous trans dimensional construct.

There's no such thing as the perfect role playing ga—

Why does offensive magic suck so much? What's the point of using it when I'm better off getting a Monk and punching the enemy harder than some mage's dinky fireball or ice shards? At best you can use Sap, but that misses a lot against the stuff you'd actually want to use it on.
It's not even just DQ3, it's all the games.

>>3502105
Magic is incredibly powerful if you experiment with it and develop strategies for efficiently clearing enemy groups. Enemies have resistances and weaknesses to certain types of magic and you won't know it until you experiment with different encounter groups.
The Defeat/Whack line of spells for example often get memed on for being every useless but it took me a bit of playing around to realize that there are certain types of enemies very susceptible to being hit by it (usually "dumb" or physically strong types of enemies), and this stuck with me for every game since DQ2.

i think people are very hesitant to experience with magic in dragon quest purely because mp is such a precious resource with so few ways to recover it in the series.

Even with hitting weaknesses, it feels like you'd deal more damage just smacking the enemy with a sword. It simply doesn't seem worth it for how squishy mages are and for how limited MP is.
>>
>>3502150
Some enemies are resistant to physical attacks. You're also able to attack groups of enemies with magic early on in the game.
