181  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which Final Fantasy Has The Best Story and Why? on: January 10, 2011, 07:25:16 PM
I think FFVII had the most injurious story to the series. It's like you have a velociraptor, and this velociraptor represents Square's fanbase. And you have Cloud, who represents FFVII.

Cloud is pounding the velociraptor in the butt. And the velociraptor is crying.

This is FFVII.

Wow, my brain hurts from the stupid. I'm going to have to go do something stimulating before I can come back and finishing reading these threads.

Edit: I should probably explain why this makes my head hurt rather than just sound like a troll. Your analogy has no valuable information in it, at all. What the heck does a velociraptor and Square's fanbase have in common? How does FF7's story "sodomize" (as you are essentially putting it) the fanbase? You sound like a child making such statements.

Hey, I've been playing through DDS part 1 using a guide because I am not in the mood for a challenge. However, I was wondering, about how long it takes to finish the game? I've been playing about 20 hours and am about halfway through the guide, so I'm estimating about 40-50 hours. Also, how about DDS part 2? The only reason I'm asking is to try and pace myself better. If it is only about 40 hours I'll probably try and finish it sooner since I have a lot of stuff to in about a month that will cut into game time.

So please enlighten me on who exactly this game is for and what it is going to offer. Because as far as I can tell, this game offers nothing besides wandering in a desert.

Good, you seem to know exactly what the game offers. Why is it so hard for you to understand that some people are excited about this? We seem to have absolutely no problem understanding that you think this is boring.

I'm talking about collectibles, intriguing and varied puzzles, awesome landmarks, and customization (Maybe different style of robes or hats, maybe even costumes).

I don't think this game is for you.

ROFL

As for the topic at hand, Flower is IMO the best game to be released in the last few years. Flow was great too. There is no way I'm not getting this game. Even if all the reviews tank I will buy it to find out myself.

Uncharted 2 was probably one of the worst purchases I've made in recent memory. The whole time I was playing it I was thinking, Is this it? Maybe it's because I've never been a huge fan of Indiana Jones. The game was ripping it off so hard it just felt so uninspired. The gameplay was all right, but it felt like many other shooters I'd played before.

I've gotten really bored of the Western-styled sandbox RPG lately. Unless I see a dramatic change in scenery (e.g. a steampunk setting, Lovecraftian setting) or I change my tune in 11 months, this doesn't interest me.

That gamespot review blew my mind, this industry isn't going anywhere with a press like this.

Over the last couple years it really seems like the quality of reviewers in the industry has plummeted. For years I've sung the song of how helpful a good review can be in purchasing decisions. As much I still hold this to be true, finding good reviews is actually quite a chore now. It didn't used to be this way =\

I wasn't paying attention to this thread and saw it at Gamestop yesterday for $15. Yes, totally worth it. Basically, if you have any interest at all and $15 is still too expensive for you for a brand new game then you have better things to be doing than playing video games, like getting a job that you can support yourself with or doing your school work. With that I wish you luck!

Frankly, I am surprised this game is getting the attention it is. It looks pretty sweet (though like a number of you I am concerned about it not being enough RPG), but Parasite Eve really didn't sell all that well in the US. Yeah, this is an RPG site so I can see why so many of you have played it, but as for these other sites.... Plus, the sequel was a huge letdown (yeah, I know some of you enjoyed it, that's fine) compared to the original. The intense excitement just seems a little out of place to me.

I wasn't aware selling 900,000 copies means it "didn't sell all that well" in the west.

Whoopsee :S For some reason I remembered it not being a big seller. Not that it was a bad seller, just not a big one.

Even with this new information, I'm still very much surprised by the level of press associated with it.

It seems like I need to get a hand held fast or I am going to be missing out on the best RPGs of this generation.

Also, a little off topic: RPG is an initialism, not an acronym ;S
