The world ends with you(ds)...my gosh do I hate that game and myself for buying it after seeing all those great reviews it got

give it another shot. I was like you, then gave it another chance a year ago and I feel much better about it. Neko takes a lot of patience to like.

As much as I love it, probably Pokemon.

would be impossible to give another shot as I long gave it away to a friend



Maybe Dragon Quest 1 since it barely has a plot. Most jrpg plots are kind of stupid so it's hard to pick, and this is coming from a big fan of the genre. Tales of the Abyss was pretty awful. I thought Grandia's story was bad, Lunar Genesis literally bored me to sleep, Omega Quintet is the most stupid shit I've ever played but what do I expect from a jrpg/idol game?

I actually like all those games listed above, it's just that the plots, like most jrpgs are pretty bad.



Pokemon comes to mind.

- Single parent approves of child's idea to drop out of school and travel the country/world alone with their pet.
And since the child in question has a tendency to speak with every adult stranger they meet, whether it is in a dank cave or forest, what could possibly go wrong?

Oh boy.

Dawn of the New World.

By itself is a really generic, unsatisfying story, with very badly paced character development, for some not at all, really lack of anything worth nothing RPG story.

But...

Is also a spin off/sequel to not only a Tales of game, but one to Symphonia, a title with a rich world, story and character development.

My biggest problem with this game truly, is that is a pretty bad Tales of story, is not a game worthy of that name, character interactions are there, but most are uninteresting, the Symphonia 1 cast gets zero extra development and they completely went against some of Lloyd's ideals that made him the character he was in the first game.

Added non sensical elements like the centurions and Ratatosk to the world of Phantasia/Symphonia, they don't add anything that wasn't there already, just an excuse to go on an adventure and in cases, contradictory.

And the new characters don't help, Emile is a poorly done Luke and Marta gets 0 development, annoying to no end protagonists and Richter was also nothing noteworthy. Complete waste of time.

A game that just trashes the legacy of one of my favorite RPGs. Badly done fanfiction the game.

I don't expect Game Freak to expand upon the politics of its world but I would really like to see how the school system works. Why do some kids go school and others don't? Is there schools that don't focus on Pokemon? What's the age to stop attending? etc etc...



i didn't play FF XV, but the trailer of 4 dudes riding in a sportscar is pretty laughable and I just can't imagine that it was very good. It gets my vote unless someone can defend that atrocious concept.

The Sun/Moon anime does have a school system ... I mean it's not in-depth or anything but it clearly seems like there's already infrastructure going for that effect. Actually, the first Island you're on in the game does have a school to.

I assume 10, as that's when you can get a Pokemon and leave home
