Blasphemy!

Just out of curiosity, have you played Vagrant Story or Final Fantasy Tactics? If yes to either what do you think of them?

Tactics is great,but i never properly played vagrant story.

I honestly never felt like the game required any kind of grinding. Just fight the battles you get into naturally and you're pretty much fine against all but maybe the most difficult optional superbosses. As far as the healing by defending goes, I can remember exactly two bosses in the game where I had to do that even in my first playthrough, and even then it was just because I didn't yet know how they should be fought. In the end, the only real issues I've ever had with the game are its awful voice acting, which was pretty much the norm at the time, and the graphics which are naturally dated these days.

When the combat is this plain i don't even want to do that tbh. And to be really honest, this game released after chrono cross,FFVIII and just some months before FFIX. The "graphics" were already not that good at the time. But i should have clarified this on the post, the artstyle is the problem here more than the shading and/or polygon modeling. Everything looks bland besides some parts of the opening.

Well, that's really a matter of personal opinion. The Legend of Dragoon is literally my 2nd favourite game of all time, so there's very little about the game that I don't like. The battle system is among my favourites ever, as it doesn't just sit you down passively selecting things from a list but actually demands you to do something in battle. As far as the visual style is concerned, I've always liked it a lot.

Fair, and i'm happy you could get enjoyment out of it then. I for sure didn't.

You know my biggest gripe with that era till the current era (playstation) is always going to be insane amount of load times and yes I do remember it being horrible. It really does need makeover for the modern era just make that bearable.

I've mentioned this before on this site, but as much as I enjoyed the PS, the loading eventually wore me down to the point that I went "all in" on the N64 in spring/summer 98' and sold my PS and games. I had lots of fun with it but the N64 was hitting it's stride, and covered everything nicely until the Dreamcast launched. Funny thing, I'm currently playing Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online on the PS4, and it has the most atrocious loading/boot-up sequence I can maybe ever remember. Tallying the unskippable boot-up credits and the nonsensical loading sequence, it takes roughly 4 minutes to get from the dashboard to the point that you're playing. In game loading is fast at least.

Which is why people shouldnt make light of the PS5 being able to load things like in 1/10th the time of the PS4.

In a thread here, someone was passing it off as a "meh thats not impressive" thing, but honestly massively reduced loading times is a bigger than than just slightly better looking games (imo), since games already look so darn good.

Quality of life improvement from loading times, shouldnt be underestimated.

Yes, it's a joke.

I mean, it's kinda obvious, really. It's like making a thread called "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an awful, uninteresting slog of a film and I don't like it" and expect people not to mention me. They're gonna joke about it, it's inevitable.

I just wanted to make sure because i don't trust people on the internet.
