Some years ago, I was a huge fan of RPGs. I love games like Final Fantasy IV, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VII, Breath of Fire 2, etc. But in the last 3 or 4 years, I haven't played a single game of this genre (Except South Park: The Stick of Truth, but mainly because of the humour).
I've tried games like Final Fantasy X (Didn't liked it) and Final Fantasy XII (Good gameplay, but didn't went very far). I don't know why, but I've got tired of RPGs. Until last week, when I started Xenoblade Chronicles.
My save has something around 8 hours. I'm up to Colony 6, with some sidequests cleared in the way. I'm in love with everything in this game. The plot looks great so far, the soundtrack is beautiful, and characters like Shulk and Dunban are awesome. Also I really like how the game lets you explore the vast world while you get experience from it.
The battles are very fast and breathtaking, even when you are fighting a regular enemy in the field. Of course, the boss battles are way more exciting though. I've had a bit of trouble learning some of the battle and system mechanics, but overall, it's nothing very hard.
I'm really glad that I found some time and motivation to start Xenoblade Chronicles. It's not only one an awesome RPG, but it's also one of the best games I've played in the last years.
