When I think about it what is it with RPGs and treasure chests? I mean who just randomly leaves all these chests lying around full of loot? Especially, most being located at the end of a winding corridor or dungeon. Don't get me wrong I love these games but what gives?
It feels good to open a chest full of potions and money or anything
that can help you on your adventure, is as simple as that. It makes me a sad panda when I don't get anything. It's like, I'm losing my time with this empty chest.
And now that I remember, Zelda and Ys might be the only series that glorifies this moment of opening a chest with epic music.Examples
