I would love to see some moral questions with no "right" answer. For example bandits capture 15 adults and 3 children. They force you to chose between letting the adults live or the children. If you take more than 10 seconds to choose they all die. If you get violent they all die.

In my experience in most WRPGs you are either a saint or a sinner.(ignoring The Witcher of course)

I am reminded of those stories you read about "True Names". It is a bit scary how much power you can have over a person by simply knowing their name.

Thank you for the responses. I think that has cleared up what I was wondering. I tried googling the answer before but they all seemed to turn ugly very quickly.

I really liked the first one although not as much as the majority of people. I hope they make it so that the Mage class does not totally outclass the other two classes.

Edward is more useful in the DS version although why you would level him up high enough I do not know.

I really liked the end game feature in the GBA FFIV where you could use the other characters.

Luminous Arc's easy experience gains for using non damaging skills made most characters without them kind of useless by the end of the game.

His abilities pose a great danger to earths very survival!. Imagine if he was in the possession of those who would use him for self gain.

I think I remember reading that by the laws of physics we should theoretically be able to see into the past and future as well as over great distances. I cannot remember where I read it so it may be all made up.

It's the equivalent of writing an article about seeing someone sharing a chocolate bar and then accusing them of being socialists.

This is kind of off topic but I have always been curious about the immense dislike many Americans seem to have for anything resembling socialism. I do not mean to sound flaming or anything. This forum seems pretty mature and I was wondering if someone could explain why.

I think for some people the internet may be the cause. Nowadays you see a lot of how do I beat X boss in X game. I find it more rewarding when you discover that on your own. Of course there are exceptions such as DDS Demi-Fiend or wondering why you cannot find Shadow in FF6 WoR.

Also a lot more people seem to be playing their first playthrough of games with the aid of a FAQ to have a "Perfect game save". Nothing wrong with that but it takes a lot of the fun if it is your first playthrough.

It is not only JRPGs that do this though. A lot of WRPG humour I just find unfunny. It may be because a lot of the time it just does not suit the atmosphere. There are exceptions to both JRPgs and WRPGs though.

I do not really mind if some of the jokes are off. There are some where either bad translation ruins it or it is just a joke we "won't get" over here. What I hate is when they create something that is really funny but keep using it again and again...and again until it gets really stale.

I used his Mighty Guard on occasion. Although not necessary it is useful in some places. I tended to only raise his overdrive and only bring him out if a new enemy was to be lanced or I needed a specific overdrive.

A character I actually despised was Umaro from FF6. I never chose him to join in the last dungeon with me.

Recently I have seen The Road and Eragon.
The Road was great and made me decide on getting the book. It had the most realistic post-apocalyptic earth I have seen in a movie.

Eragon was either terrible or the best thing you have ever seen. It is hilarious if you think of it as a parody of Eragon.
Things such as a baby dragon suddenly going "poof" and changing to adult size.
I was really surprised when it came to the time where the Ra'zac were going to kill Brom, He kills one and drives away the other. Five minutes later they give him the lamest death ever.

This has kind of happened to me. Generally I prefer charm over realism so it is a bit more difficult for me to get into a lot of current gen games. Usually I do not play anything for a while and then when I read a review online or some book, I get an urge to play a specific game.

Lately I have noticed I have stopped speaking to NPCs in most games (I mean just normal npcs, not npcs with a purpose like Persona 4). There are some games where I still speak to a lot if not all but with most games I end up ignoring them.

Usually I have quite a unique taste in games. What I enjoy others may find average or outright despise. Part of it has to do with hype. If some game is acclaimed to be the best thing since sliced bread I am usually critical of it whereas if a game gets poor reviews I find myself more lenient to its flaws.

Can you imagine what it must have been like for them?

Random person number 1: "Wow, thank you for the lemonade"
Girls: "You're welcome"

Random person number 2: "You are doing a great thing here"
Girls: "Thank you"

Jerk: "What the hell do you kids think you are doing? This is the real world, not your little fantasy land! Are you retarded or something? God, this is why I never want kids"
Girls: "..."
Brother: "So...how much?"

Is this guy serious? If so, it seems to me that he is overreacting. As Gale would say "I do not comprehend".
