Hrmm...lemme think far back for this one...Mega Man Legends 2-
This one first and foremost. Anyone who has any love for the sub-series knows what a life-time punch in the gut this one was. These days though...I think it's best left sleeping. MO#9 pretty much showed to me that old Keiji doesn't have the desire or ability to produce a decent story-plot for that kind of universe anymore. Time will tell with Bloodstained whether or not that applies to all genres or just his Mega Man-verse. And a Capcom version? No. Just...no.Grandia Xtreme
- Let's shove the elephants out the door first. Yes, the story was meh. VA was pooooor (even Mark Hamil didn't really deliver much of a performance here). And the character's were cookie cutter at best. Edge Maverick protoforms at worst (I'm looking at you Evan. >.> ). But the combat...mmm. Sure it might not 'look' as smooth as III's but it handled the best the series has ever done. Combined with fun bosses, rocking music, and a surprisingly enjoyable and deep level of customization per character...I'd gladly buy this again just for something to zen-grind. Even more so than any Disgaea game. So when I got to the end of the post-game 100F dungeon it was very much a "...where's the next 100? :( "Sonic Generations-
So much sadness on so many levels. Never was there as good a game as this, never will there ever be again for the poor hedgehog. Well...at least not until SEGA/Nintendo goes bankrupt and someone with actual common design sense decides to hold the license.Fallout: New Vegas
- Helped quite a bit coming off the heels of it's lesser brother. FO3's original and 'redone' endings both invoke a sense of "Is it over yeeeeeet?" by the time you get there through sheer burnout. But the time you finish New Vegas it's very much a longing for more stories in this region. New Vegas 2 would be highly welcome, although it'll never happen since FO games like to bounce from region to region.Any Civilization Game
- >.> ...fess up. Anyone who knows the 'One More Turn' feeling knows the worst part of any Civ game is when the victory condition hits. XDVirtue's Last Reward
- I have the opposite feelings of Ramza here. Plot Threads I can tolerate. So long as the localized story is wrapped up at least 90% of the way, I'm fine with that. You can tease any little things that aren't immediately relevant to the current tale so long as you wrap that bugger up. But VLR wasn't just a cliffhanger...it was a cliff-abyss.
Consider the whole game is essentially NOTHING BUT A PREQUEL/SET-UP. X-X
Let's not discount either this was a 4-year abyss. With at least 50+% of that being a time period where it seemed ZTD was perma-canned. That made VLR's ending all the more depressing.
