to me majora's mask marks a missed opportunity for the series. to me the masks was like having multiple playable characters. wich was something i wish they followed up on. if i recall in twilight princess link even joins a team that had the potential for this but it of course didnt happen.

The flying mounts thing has me puzzled and simultaneously intrigued as far as how one would implement such a thing in a game that has a lot of fade-to-black zoning and an inability to cross any watery areas that are deeper than a foot.  Guess we'll see.

That whole "they just don't make 'em like they used to" argument can be a precarious blanket statement.  Granted, I'm sure many of us feel that way about software, especially how we perceive the titan companies of our youth getting a little creaky in the knees.  Analogy: Michael Jordan in his prime was arguably the best basketball player ever, but if he were in the NBA now, younger stars like Kobe and LeBron would kick butt because they're in their physical prime and Jordan is past his.  Jordan's still a legend, though and no one can take that away from him.  

That being said, I do remember saying this about hardware in an old episode of the RPGFan podcast.  My first generation Sega Genesis had a 6 oz cup of cola spilt on it, and it still worked.  I don't have it now, but if I did, I could plug it in and it would probably STILL work now.  And we've all heard stories of people abusing the hell out of their old GameBoys and even Game Boy Advances- they take a lickin' and keep on tickin.'  Accidentally spilling cola on some of my current hardware?  Probably gonna get bricked.  

And I wonder if the OP might like Fire Emblem: Awakening.  

And, again, there's a treasure trove of solid stuff from smaller development houses.  Kinda like how we think music on mainstream radio is lousy, but if you dig deeper, there's some killer bands out there crafting great songs who are far from famous but are f'n good.  

except in the nba the number of teams doesnt decline and over generations the players get better not worse.

i would say rpgfan is a shell of its former self too. it was at it's best in the ps2 era.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs and the horrible path they follow on: October 11, 2014, 02:52:11 AM
i agree with the op. its sad when one of the best ps3 jrpg's is an hd remake of a ps2 game

kid and terra among the best rpg heroines...excuse me but i cant stop laughing hahahahaha.....it's like as your little user comment would suggest your intentionally saying things that will cause people to argue with you.

any respect i had for terra flew out the window when i played dissidia

The original VP was a disjointed garbled mess. A fun disjointed garbled mess, but still a mess.

In what way?
I'd argue it was one of Tri-Ace's better attempts at a story (which isn't saying much for them; and probably more based around the sheer tragic beauty of individual character moments).

Only thing that's garbled is explaining parts of the game and A-Ending requirements.

EDIT: Mongoose, you must do it!!!

Overly emotional/dramatic story that was basically just a bunch of campy and trite vignettes that were very loosely tied together. Sluggish control response in dungeons. Silly battle system that felt like "mash on attack, mash on attack, heal, repeat", no real antagonist until the very end (would've been nice to actually SEE an Aesir god in the 2 dozen hours before the B ending). TONS of essentially worthless characters you have no time to level up because of the countdown clock. A shoehorned love story. etc etc. etc.

Also it's been hyped TO DEATH mostly because it was so hard to find. It was just a big pile of meh that I still ended up enjoying somewhat.

Edit: I actually made it to the final dungeon for the A ending on hard during a second play through, but didn't care enough to do anything other than watch what happens on YouTube.

there so much wrong with this post i dont even know where to begin....
