Yep, let's make a unique genre streamlined into something the west likes because fuck diversity. We already had an atrocity called FFXV, we don't need that again.
That said, I wouldn't mind action gameplay for the remake. It's a remake after all, they can do with it whatever they want. The original sucked anyway so it can only go up from here.
You can blame western gamers for growing out of the JRPG tropes and outdated mechanics and i think FF7 is a good game just not as legendary or the best FF game, much less one of the greatest games ever like many others claim.
Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled. Great story, graphics and all, but the random encounters are way way WAY too often, like two steps- encounter.
Thanks for the warning, i won't touch that game.
I like pokemon but cave + zubats + dark is just not fun. It's just annoying.
Random encounters are fine for me in a game once a year, but i wouldn't play ten rpgs in a year like this any more. Currently there's no reason to make games with random encounters any more, i find this mechanic outdated.
I use to like Turn Based RPGs when i was playing Pokemon Blue, Golden Sun and FF7. I feel as i got older that genre seems less appealing to me now. Its just not as fun as i use to remember
Every system has flaws, which can be mitigated by good design or exaggerated by bad design. There is no perfect method that everyone will enjoy.
Personally, everything being an "action RPG" now has pretty much killed what used to be my favorite genre.
You can blame western gamers for growing out of the JRPG tropes and outdated mechanics i think Kotaku did a whole article on why Western RPGs are better than JRPGs and i've got to admit some of their points were true.
Ni no Kuni is almost perfect. You not only can avoid enemies (unless when they're standing on a too narrow path) but you don't need to avoid weaker enemies, they just run from you. So when you need to go back to some area you've beaten, you don't need to care about the useless weaklings.
Yeah i still haven't played it i'll be sure to check it out some time.
