I just recently got into the final fantasy franchise thanks to kingdom hearts. The first game I decided to play is final fantasy x on the ps2. I'm really enjoying it so far and I wanted to see what your opinions are of the game?

Its the last good one FF, you could already see the sings of a downfall here. World map is not there, beautiful prerendered backgrounds mostly gone (there are few actually) in favor of 3d that doesn't even do real 3d (fixed camera most of the time).

But there is effort put info this game, a lot of it. It was first FF with voice acting and as much as you could argue that games only improved on that later, I think here it was best, because it was a bit awkward, but also had soul, effort and didn't completely shit on music.

Soundtrack is kind of a mixed bag, but you can still hear some Uematsu here, not in his top form anymore unfortunately, but still great.

Seymour was good villan, I liked how he didn't straight announce the to the whole world that he is evil, which happens all too often in these stories.

>Seymour was good villain
Even FFX fans agree that Seymour is one of the bad things about it.
>>
>>3500438
I would have said that at the time. But looking back he was okay. Good voice actor too.
>>
>>3500438
What's wrong with Seymour? I thought he was great. The perception of him developed in a neat way throughout the game.

>Commander Monkey Shepard

I was mocking Legion's autism relax I already said I'm not a bot and I already said I'm not working for the Geth. Right?

>depending on how you handle Javik
I suppose so. He kills himself if you let him activate his memory shard. Interesting part is what would make it more grim is how if renegade Shepard did intentionally suggest Javik activate his shard with the hidden genocidal intention of wanting him to one day kill himself, Javik would be well aware his Commander wants him dead because of his semi-telepathy. Plus you can essentially ensure he goes through with his suicide by refusing to shake his hand in London. One of the most cold blooded renegade things you can do in the trilogy is refuse the paragon interrupt for his handshake. Like even if you're roleplaying a goodboy type Shepard who outright disagrees with every ultra machiavellian af statement Javik says in the whole game, it really is pretty fucked up to still refuse to shake his hand after all you two had been through together fighting the Rapers side-by-side across the stars. I mean If I was Javik and hadn't gained an ounce of my commander's respect throughout the whole game I'd wanna kill myself probably
>>
>>3500558
Also worth noticing how a simple mod to fix ME3 would be to voice splice anytime Javik says "Primitive/Primitives" to instead say "Monkey Nigger/Monkey Niggers" for immersion. Javik is a hardcore chud (like TIM levels of space chud) not some pansy Hanar diplomat plus he is very pissed off his race went extinct so he isn't exactly in a mood to be excessively polite and isn't going to use PC language anymore

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.

>>3501085
It's hard to define, so I don't know truthfully. Video game writing is usually too full of cliches and the sentiment is too adolescent. There is no "Ingmar Bergman" of video games, but you have lots of Ridley Scotts and Darren Aronofsky's

barring that, planescape torment has some choice lines like pic related.

DQ3 is Japan's favorite DQ. I think the worldwide favorite DQ is 8. Which is why I think they stuffed so much DQ8 into DQ11. I concur with DQ5 getting a high-budget remake. Not enough people have played it and it's downright the sorta story they could make a Hollywood movie about and peoples' mouths would gape over how incredible it is.

Sort of. They’re significantly worse than the sprite-based games in the Trails series but they’re still fun. The main hook is world building. Almost every single NPC in the game has their own character arc they go through and there a lot of them. There’s actually a very interesting story based on late 1800’s/early 1900’s European political and military history going on beneath the surface (on of the characters is just Otto von Bismarck) but they cover it up with every stock anime cliche in the book so the children won’t get bored. Seriously, every anime cliche you can think of is in these games. That’s not an exaggeration.

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.

You're still engaging in the story, as you are navigating and in a sense, creating dialogue trees. You're choices don't affect the PLOT though. Story and plot are two different things.

II looks great, I eventually didn't hate the sister even though she basically bricked my save with some bug by making me take her when I went to do the dragon shit. Jowy's writing hurt it. but holy shit Tyr's life is bleak.
III is a nice culmination of things previously built on with Harmonia/Luc. Chris has the weakest chapters/supporting characters. Thomas and Geddoe stand out. Hugo is okay.Game forces way too many unwinnable because story needs this to happen fights.
IV Felt more like a budget spinoff, feels like MC is really isolated unlike previous titles. I didn't hate it. I don't get the MC's edgy boyscout look.
V built up the characters nicely and was pretty engaging. This series has way too big a boner for their tacticians though, everyone goes on and on about how brilliant they are then they just either do the most basic shit then are somehow omnipotent and know how everything will turn out.

So you've probably all seen the free trial meme by now. It's been about two years since the big WoW exodus. The next expansion is looking to take the story in a brand-new direction after Endwalker wrapped up the story that's been going since 2010.

So, anons, no bullshit, why haven't you tried this game yet? Why haven't you made it out of your starting city? Why won't you be upgrading from the free trial?

I did.

The dungeons are all the same, only a few of them have hazards or environmental threats (stalker tonberries and corrupt crystals to name two), everything between the bosses is just "Get everything's attention and spam AOE" and the bosses rarely have gimmicks to worry about. Equipment boils down to "Stack skill speed to tier and max crit" since no equipment has no special traits like elemental damage, lifesteal, ailment chance, or other RPG staples, they're all stat sticks and stat shirts. Did you know materia is nulled when items are synced? For some raids it's optimal to equip low-level equipment and load it up with materia.

The story, though good when focusing on the primals, empire, or the fate of the cosmos, has very few stakes. Anyone who does die was either basically sidelined, was absolutely hated by the fanbase, or you met them 5 main quests ago, if they give an optional quest at any point they have basically burned the death flag. Speaking of the main quest, several details that are brought up later are either immediately forgotten or they are so insignificant it's little more than a callback, making the tangent an irrelevant waste of time. You could remove 50 quests from ARR and the first two expansions each and it would STILL have worse pacing than Higurashi. I've said in the game several times that the whole main quest could be filled with shortcuts that lead straight to primals and major dungeons, the whole bullshit around saving Minfilia from the teapot lady could've been reduced to "Kick down the front door and raise hell".

The fun content in FF14 is the raids and the bosses, but there is so much boring bullshit between them that by the time I get to it I've lost more and more of my motivation to keep playing.
