whether the device worked perfectly is not the point. exploring fucking sucks unless there is some type of reward. nothing pisses me off more than being stuck because i cant find out where to go next. and if you think it wasnt worth it all i have to say is lol......even at the end of the game i could easily spend all my cash upgrading weapons and/or armor and the statues were a nice source of cash.

i actually kinda liked the evolution games when they first came out on dreamcast. but by the time words came out they had aged and thier novelty was gone.

segment breaking fails unless a reward for doing so. example star ocean 3 rewarded the player for exploring each map. however it doesnt have to be that obvious some dungeons have nice treasures if you stray from the path that leads to the goal. also guys dont forget videogames are entertainment before they are art. one of the more artistic games imo shadow of the colossus barely has a story but is still highly entertaining. also these themes you speak of most likely fly right over most gamers heads. when i was playing valkyrie profile 2 i wasnt thinking of any themes. heck i dont even think of them in a game like crono cross,but i do love connecting the dots between CT and CC. i can be quite content accepting things at face value.

i like any villian or group of villians that are not inherently evil to the point where if you were put in the same situation you might join the villians team.

yeah i posted that after only reading the first paragraph. i think the last adventure game i played was full throttle many years ago when i had a mac.

good golly miss molly that is a massive wall of text.

On the flipside, RPGs are highly underdeveloped in their ability to inspire us and force us to think about things.

i dont want them too last time i checked video games werent al gore's medium of choice. i wanna be like ZOMG did you see that damage! i doubt a videogame is gonna convince someone that racism is bad or that being a homophobe is wrong though i dont think any rrpg has even attempted anything on that front. you know there was this point in xenosaga 3 where i was asking myself. do i really need to know about kevin and shions past?

i was reading about OG2.5 on gamefaqs and boy does it go out with a bang. i love the inclusion of D originals also. i too hope atlus brings this over they could even remove the voices all together and i wouldnt care. even though it would be quite amusing to hear some of the hot blooded females voiced XD

Its very unlikely Sony will catch up hardware-wise any time soon, if ever. They know their bread and butter, and that was  Blu-Ray as a long term profitable venture and using the PS3 to push it. The price barrier is just too high, and not enough games are coming out for it.

Japan IS Nintendoland, no doubt about it, and I guarantee you the PS3 will never catch up there. Ever. Sony has a good chance in Europe, but with GTA4, Halo 3, and the better versions of football games being released on the 360, it won't capture the casual jock crowd of the US. And don't underestimate sports games, remember it was those games that helped the PS2 beat the Dreamcast in the times of old!

after your comment about dreamcast i disreguarded your entire post.

also E3 is coming up next week so that will be very important.

i think shining tears is great if like me you have a high thresh hold for repetition and have someone to play it with.

theres also phantasy star universe, 2 baulders gate games, 2 champions of norrath games. ive only played one of the .hack games but at the time i played it i found its combat to be inferior to phantasy star online(is was the first game in the series that i played).  hmmn could valkyrie profile 2 be considered realtime?

But I must say... I don't have much of an excuse this time, my cue has run out... I'm sorta looking for games to play, especially now that my playthrough of Valkyrie Profile 2 has sorta fallen through (it's a great game, but I was terrible at it, and I would have had to grind for hours just to get anywhere).

just to clear something up. if you suck at VP2 no amount of leveling up will help. the main reason to level up is to learn new attacks and get points for setting skills. to key to success is in sealstones. more often than not you can become near invincible via sealstones.

ahem sorry for going offtopic there VP is a series i cherish >_>

front mission was pretty difficult as far as srpg's go. its almost like super robot wars without seishin. so i wouldnt be suprised if the drop in price was from a lot of people trading it in. i liked FM4 but never finished it because i lost interest near the end of the game.

Same, I got to the end and suddenly lost interest. The plot was going nowhere and the battles lacked flair near the end. I hovered on the though to finish up the game for over 6 months, popped out a codebreaker from my neighbour, winged it, saw the ending and traded it in. -.-;;

In the meantime, FFXIII and FM5 are the last things I'd care about. I didn't even touch Dawn of Mana, and I traded in FFXII.

I'm too hooked to Super Robot Wars Original Generations to care anyways.  >.>

i really hope that game comes out in the states i really liked the R originals,and i'll finally have something better for Leona than the Guarlion Custom/Wildwurger L :o
2580  The Rest / General Discussions / AMA may label 'Video Game Addiction' as disorder on: July 03, 2007, 07:58:10 AM
i think videogames are a strange addiction since its not like smoking where you will smoke the same cigaretes your entire life. i play about 6 hours a day more on my days off but i dont think im addicted and if i am theres supplementary factors. also if i had to give up videogames to break a supposed addiction id probally replace it with something else such ass a ccg or something,and i wonder if i could function without them since a life without them is hard for me to fathom.
