Well, if only people who were familiar with the franchises reviewed it, they wouldn't be able to give opinions that are unbiased because of an infatuation with the subject matter. There are a lot of dud Final Fantasies that get fantastic reviews because the reviewer was too intimate with the franchise and gave it an unfair score because of past loves with earlier titles.

Just because someone is unfamiliar with the franchise doesn't mean their opinion doesn't matter, they might end up loving the game and giving comparisons and commonalities to other games the original niche fanbase might not be familiar of, and thus bringing a whole new bunch of people to the series.

Even if they say they hate it because it is of a certain genre, they are obviously not the sort of person you should be paying attention too because they are not giving it a fair review regardless. If they point out tired or ludicrous situations that JRPGs often find themselves in, or find the portrayal of epic battles unrealistic, these are fair comments but they can be just as easily disregarded by someone because they actually like that stuff.

I would also like to know what the best ones are. The series has always interested me and I would like to give it a go, but I don't want the first one I play to be the worst one and have its name forever haunting the series for me.

Worst of the decade:
Mass Effect

Woa...dude. You got balls.

Stupid balls, but they are big stupid balls.

I've never really understood the whole exploration part that people seem to enjoy in video games, Prime Mover,or rather, I just have never 'got' it. My idea of exploration is going to the next dungeon seeing the exit, but noticing there are a couple paths left unexplored, which might hold some awesome treasure, or an extra scene.

When I'm thrust into a sort of open-world enviroment, I feel a tad disorientated. I need a sense of direction, and I hate the thought of the dungeon just getting deeper and deeper while it's been about 4 hours since I last saw some story.

I'm not knocking those kinds of games, I'm just saying, totally not my thing. :D

Stuff like Cross Edge are beyond terrible, they're patronages to satan.

This is why God will lose the war, he is totally behind the times man. Satan is  smart enough to modernize and find new to ways create evil. I know bad voice acting is far more plentiful than goat sacrifices nowadays!

I have never seen a game get their audience so wrong before.

This doesn't look like it's going to be the game that introduces me into the wonderful world of MMO's

I was never dissatesfied with the amount of sidequests there were in FFX. You had Blitzball (Yeah, yeah, I know, not everyones cup of tea). There was the monster arena (I found this very fun), you could collect the ultimate weapons, there was an optional dungeon with an optional boss, the dark aeons, the Al Behd passwords/primers, and some unimportant ones such as lightning dodging and the cactuar thing.

FFX is linear, but I never thought 'God, this sure is linear", not like I did with XIII anyway.

The start of Robos Theme always makes me feel like i'm going to get Rick Rolled.

EDIT: Never mind, I read the comments on the youtube video after I posted and other guys totally already figured that one out.

I'm not into anime, it doesn't seem very targeted towards me, however Perfect Blue and Millennium Actress will always be two of my favourite films of all time.

- Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift (reminds me of spending most of Winter on the District Line... fun times)

I couldn't get into A2, I rather enjoyed the previous one for the GBA though. The auction system let you have powerful weapons well before you should have them IMO. I like my characters power to build progressively rather than jumping all over the place.

The graphics were nice though.

It's art. No, seriously. It's art.

Why was Firefly canceled after one season

It sucked.

Liesssss. I loved it.

Why are talented musicians not given the spotlight more than their vapid, saccharine friends?

Why was Firefly canceled after one season while Keeping Up with the Kardashians still haunts the airwaves.

The way of the world my friend.
4393  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: 71 year old sues her kids for parental support on: August 22, 2010, 08:38:10 PM
Torn on the issue. I have a great relationship with my parents, and of course I would look after them when they are old. To the best of my own ability anyway. Thing is, my parents are split up, and have new partners. That would be two separate drains on income for me, not to mention the age gap between my parents and myself is more narrow than I care to admit on here, so I would be an old man as well.

Hopefully my parents would be able to have the presence of mind to make sure they have at least the basics prepared for themselves when they reach an old age, thus leaving me to supplement their income so they can continue getting the pleasures in life without myself suffering to harshly because of that.

Maybe not a Social Link system, maybe more like "Solve the murders before this date" sort of thing.

No official source has said that it's a rpg AFAIK, it's an action adventure.

I know, I was just expressing my thoughts on it.
