i believe video games are art. however i believe it's a mistake to compare videogames to books or cinema,or even paintings and the like. instead i think a better comparison is architecture.

i think its more about acceptence than any thing else.

Ebert: He is right again about me. I believe art is created by an artist. If you change it, you become the artist. Would "Romeo and Juliet" have been better with a different ending? Rewritten versions of the play were actually produced with happy endings. "King Lear" was also subjected to rewrites; it's such a downer. At this point, taste comes into play. Which version of "Romeo and Juliet," Shakespeare's or Barker's, is superior, deeper, more moving, more "artistic"?


i disagree with this because when multiple ending are well done in video games it not as simple as good ending/bad ending 2 great examples are valkyrie Profile Lenneth and um castevania(the one for gba where the main character uses a sword) also if there is multiple story arcs it doesnt cheapen things because the one that resonates most with my own life will mean more too me. as an example in arc the lad twilight of spirits Darc's story meant more to me than Karg's because i know what its like to be the victim of racism and/or intolerance.

If anything, the story in FFXII is a break from the norm. Of course I donít think itís entirely successful. I would have liked to see more characters get fleshed out, especially since the characters only seem to interact at the begging and end of dungeons, which can be quite lengthy. But I still think itís a step in the right direction.


Yes, and no.

One thing I thought was interesting was the story had an emphasis on crystals again....which we haven't seen since.....what, FF6?



i realize most people here have not played it but FFXI has heavy emphasis on crystals. there is even a conflict in the ffxi backstory known as the crystal war. in the next expansion we get to go back in time and experience that war :o imagine that a game by members of the chrono cross team featuring time travel.

if anyone is interested in reading about the ffxi storyline

Eusis he/she may be refering to the fact that OGS was delayed by nearly a year. OGS was announced months before Super Robot Taisen W but came out almost half a year after W.

i hated the DQ8 overworld but a lot of that could have to do with the fact that in my experience with the game any random encounter could wipe you. wich likely resulted in me being afraid to travel anywhere but the next location to advance the story. skies of arcadia overworld was indeed great. its hard for me to pindown what exactly made it great though. while not an overworld i liked how FFX handled things because it gave a feeling you were traveling on a journey. also any form a travel wich results in a different variation of combat wins. i was a huge fan of the horseback battles in wild arms 3.

ug.... i got nothing wrong with rpg's for the DS but i prefer my action rpg's on a larger screen.

looks at prime movers post...

yes because clearly the fun battle system had nothing to do with it?

- Protagonists will be Raul and Folka
- Ryusei will begin with ART-1
- Bartoll and Mironga aren't gone.

theres a cool looking card minigame as well. possibly a replacement for tsume super robo strategy game that some SRW's have.

i'm deeply offended. when i was a child (27 now) i watched mr. rogers daily. i'm getting sick of how this country is trying to push math and science on kids at the cost of the arts :(

summon a tier 1 summon then aspir/osmose it. summons dont use mp for their moves/magic. i think you can also revive characters that are on standby.

(Seriously, I've never played an MMO that had an fFish battle system. I imagined FFXI does, but, er, I've never played that, and it's apparently not indicative of the genre as a whole. i've seen WoW being played and WoW combat looks NOTHING like FFXII combat).


ffxi and ffxii essentially use the same battle system(and probally the same game engine too) except ffxi uses the job system instead of the stupid lisence board. theres some other small differences too like limit breaks not consuming mp and summons not sending party members away or consumong all your mp. the only use i found for summons in ffxii is so out of the box i didnt even think of it till after i got rid of the game.
