MGShogun, I hope you're ready to take the next couple of years off to play all of the games that have been mentioned ;)

AT2 definitely had some problems but I don't recall any major issues with the first one.  Been a while since I played it, though.

Can't find a copy of Alundra 1 for PS2 and I don't have access to PSN since I don't have PSP and PS3. X.X

I'm just going to go ahead and say it:  You should seriously think about getting a PSP.  They're not that expensive, and in addition to the fact that there are many great PSP RPGs, PSOne Classics are dirt cheap.  A lot of people have suggested PS1 games in this thread that will be rare, hard to find, and expensive if you do find them.  But a lot of these games are available for just $7 or $10 (for the more popular titles) off the PSN Store.  You might actually save money in the long run by getting a PSP.

I'll probably get it eventually but not at launch.  Too many other games keeping me busy right now...

Man, how many friggin threads are we going to have the FFXII discussion in?  It's a very divisive game, let's leave it at that.

P.S.: I liked it.

I suspect the real reason for the backlash against CC is that most of the people going into it had really strong memories of playing CT when they were younger and associated that game fondly with childhood and simply didn't like having something that they perceived as fucking with their childhood.

I hate arguments like this because there is no way to disprove it, but that doesn't mean it's right.  Cross has serious issues.  I don't think it's a horrible game or anything and there are a few things it does quite well, but that's no reason to gloss over the problems and attribute all negative sentiments about it to some sort of CT nostalgia.  CC has a confusing and poorly told story, way too many irrelevant characters who join your group for the flimsiest of reasons and are never seen again, and a boring and too easy combat system.  Personally I played CT when it was brand new but for whatever reason I never got around to playing CC until like 2008 or something.  By that time I could barely even remember a lot of the details about CT, let alone how CC fucked with them.  CC fails on its own merits.

VP games tend to ooze girl power

Wait.... wha?

My thoughts exactly...

Normally I can't stand over-analytical deconstructions of video games (or any other medium, for that matter) but I read through the whole Chrono Cross article (and it ain't short...) and really enjoyed it.  It's very well-written and I think it expresses a lot of the problems and successes of that game very well.  Thanks for the link.

1. I think I have a fourth nipple on my leg. That's odd.

Where's #3?

Unless you're totally fine with character/environment/UI designs, 3D modeling, and programming (that includes studying different languages or even studying architectures of a system), you're not suited for developing games.

Unless you are talking about a small indy project the people doing character design are not the same people doing programming.  'And' is not the right word there.

I agree with badsanta, actually.  P3's plot has a lot of issues, and 'symbolism' does not excuse sloppy writing.  I thought P4's plot was much tighter, and overall I enjoyed that game a lot more.

Mountain Dew or crab juice.

Check out Shiren The Wanderer, it's almost exactly what you're describing.  Each move you make is a turn, but they flow out of you as if you were playing an action game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISS30c_WVsI

It's called a rougelike.  It's a whole genre.  A very old genre.

I know that.  Baroque doesn't have SRPG style movement like Shiren, or else I'd have promoted that instead.

I don't even understand your comment.  Who said anything about Baroque?

This is officially the greatest thread ever.
