^You are making the 'idiot' part of your profile an unironic statement.

So all in all, this is mainly centered around the nitpicky nature of geeks and their inability to separate their own brand of issues with the work at hand.

Having said that said, I'm sure that what I said above is gonna get twisted somehow or interpreted as some kind of drama because the world works backwards, or something to that effect. In any case, I'm looking foward to the World of FF despite that it looks like I'll have to get on it if I can later with DX: Mankind Divided and Final Fantasy XV being much more of a priority to me than the chibi adventures.

Perhaps it's the 2D vs 3D?

Nah. There is an active avertion, with weird double standard sometimes with different kinds of games and movies, on the West when it comes to colorful and cute designs in comparison to visuals that go for the dark and gritty with a sense of realism to them.

My avatar is categorically not chibi, in even the slightest way.


At least can you tell me why so that way I have point reference to understand your view better?

@Dincrest: *checks out channel*

I rather stick with Shoe0nHead's channel when it comes to this sort of thing.

@Andrew & Arvis: There's not a right way to say this, but, have both of you guys seen your avatars? Do you notice the irony and lack of self-awareness there is by showing a dislike to chibis and have a 2D chibi sprite in your profile?

I'm not trying to be judgemental. Is just that, that's why I'm seeing and I find it a bit curious.

The chibi look seems to come right out Pictlogica Final Fantasy. I've always had a soft spot for chibis, so the more I see an FF with this look the more I notice how this is something that I never knew I wanted. Hopefully I can get around to get into it sooner rather than later.

Don't Listen to Rap Music If You Just Broke Up With Someone.

Valkyrie Profile was excellent, but that game took itself way too seriously sometimes.

Understatement. Honestly, I think the reason I've always been turned off VP1 was because of how intense it is from the word 'go'. Even Nier didn't set itself up to be quite as stern-faced and dreary, and that game starts at the End of the World!

I mean, VP was setting itself up to be a tragedy, and considering the Norse mythos, especially involving valkyries, it makes sense...but it quickly became heavy handed after a while, and I couldn't really take it seriously, no matter how much it wanted me to. I'm trying really hard to not call it "melodramatic" since that implies that the subjects weren't worth taking seriously, but I still think they overdid it. It didn't help that the voice acting sucked, that added to the cheesiness, honestly.

While you two are talking about something that falls on the player's shoulders how to perceive, Valkyrie Profile's setting and tone didn't pulled anything away from what it wanted to be as an RPG and as well as a narrative. Is one of the few RPGs in fact from tri-Ace that is incredibly hard to dismiss in any regard.

@MonCapitan: Common sense tells me it could eventually be made available digitally.

And even looking at gaming culture nowadays, mobile/tablet games are popular and the most popular of those don't have flash explosive graphics.  Heck, it's simplistic games like and that are digital crack to kids these days.  Because phones and tablets are such dominant gaming platforms now, the newer generation of gamers aren't quite the "graphics whores" of yore.

Mobile gaming in is cheapest form is convenient and inoffensive. And the space for simple free games of dubious quality is all about that. At the same time, that same space has taken on different forms for a very long time, and its appeal has never genuinely been visual fidelity.
