I never had to grind in FFX.  I'm also pretty sure I played through the whole game without dying a single time.  That game was difficult how exactly?

The Snow Mountain Mega Seymour boss fucked me up the first time I fought him

Glad I wasn't the only one then

The only place I remember having to grind like crazy in FFX was before the Seymore fight on Mt. Gagazet. Though the save points also fully healing you came in handy for that.

I'm not sure I want to read that wiki page, if it's more messed up than the Human Centipede. My imagination tends to get the better of me.

That list is a perfect example of why democracy doesn't work ;)

You're right, this is now a dictatorship. :)

The best game of the decade is Digimon World: Data Squad (lowest score I could find).

Anyone who disagrees will be taken to the re-education center immediately.

Disgea? If you consider the Item World grinding. I do.

Maybe the question should be clarified: require grinding to beat the game. You could avoid most grinding in DQIX for example, if not all, and if you can't you can kill a few of the appropriate metals as they pop up and rocket in levels fast enough that the tedium is barely there at worst (unless you're unlucky with spawns anyway), but the post-game definitely requires long grinding even with all metal floors.

You still need to grind, regardless of whether or not you do the Item World. You will never be able to just do one map once, and then move onto the next one. You will need to play the same map 3 or 4 times to get the necessary levels and magic skills to tackle the later ones.

I made one using RPGmaker for my little sister as a birthday present. She liked it, and it wasn't hard at all. It just takes fucking time.

That's awesome!  I have this vision of making games for my children.  I usually hate on RPGMaker because the groups who use it are so well organized, they ought to apply that energy to a homegrown engine... but making games for family is an awesome idea.

Thank you! You're right, it's really personal. Kinda like making a card, if the card had a plot and took you three months to make. I am proud of it even though it's kinda cheesy. It was about a girl's brother who gets into an accident and falls into a coma, while he's unconscious a latent psychic ability is awoken inside of him and it allows his sister to enter his mind. Defeating the monsters gets the brother just a bit closer to snapping out of the coma.

The battle system was a bit simple, kinda Pokemon-ish (as it was the only RPG she had played at the time). She could summon friendly monsters (incarnations of the brothers positive memories) to help her fight the monsters. The music was just bits and pieces of various video games, classical artists I like, and an original piece I wrote for her after finishing primary school.

The graphics though I just had to make do with whatever came with the program, because I cannot draw. Not even a stick figure. I really can't draw to save my life.

I've played a lot of RPGM stuff, some bad, some good, and I'd recommend a lot of what previous posters have suggested. But there's two titles in particular that I feel one should really check out; Last Scenario and Exit Fate. They're both freeware and made by the same guy, but I feel that they're both excellent titles, in both the gameplay and story areas. The latter is even largely a Suikoden homage, and a well done one at that. You can find both titles at the link below, and if you have the time to spend on these lengthy titles, you may get a good deal of enjoyment out of them.

Checking out Exit Fate right now. Thanks for the suggestion badsanta.

We'll see when it comes.

For all I know I've just bought a POPstation from China.

I fell asleep watching it.

Which surprised me because there sure are loads of loud 'splosions.

I just won my first ebay auction ^_^ So I got a psp now.

ohhh, how much was it?

It ended up on 62 Euros...which is about 58 (Please,don't make me figure out what that is in dollars). It came with a memory card, and some crappy football game I plan on loading off on a cousin I don't like as soon as possible. (I seem like a nice guy, he seems ungrateful of my generosity.)

It would have been 52 Euros but some mean lady bid on it at 20 secs, but I was watching for it. Hah, take that mean lady.

I assume it was a lady, could have been a transvestite from the bidding history.

The most decent RPG's always come out mid-way to the end of a consoles life, from my experience. Or until one comes along that sells massive amounts that encourages others to market RPG's more heavily for that console.

Right now, i'd say there isn't really a winner for the unofficial RPG console.

Handhelds on the other...erm...hand...

Thanks to the constant pressure from the time constraints I find myself not saving very often when I play this game.  I guess it's because I want to be sure that I have enough time to do everything I'm planning on doing  before saving.

This is a baaaaad thing when the game locks up on you...

Can't you create a second save? One as your "permanent" save and the other as your "temporary" save?
