So, uhm, yeah...

I played my first RPG in 1994, I think. Up to 2000 it all went kind of slow, because of me living in Europe and the lack of internet all over the world. Then in the first week of Januari 2001 I got my chipped PSone and things went downhill fast. 

Oh, in case anyone wondered: I've kept I list of completed RPG's since 2001. Mostly because I like making lists.

I must be some kind of idiot for taking this long to mention Illusion of Gaia/Time (and Terranigma although that wasn't nearly as moving as IoG/T IMHO).


Poor Hamlet :(

Poor... well, pretty much everyone, really.

I'd recommend Odin Sphere, but since she isn't a gamer the difficulty might be too high.

My younger sisters really likes the Atelier Iris games. Those games have a lot of interesting gameplay mechanics without becoming overwhelming.

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter's ending. It was  beautiful and sad and then joyful. One of the most satisfying endings I've seen in years.

Other than that it's usually music that brings me to tears. I've noticed it's not neccesarily the sadder pieces that do this to me, but the music that conveys greatness, hints at something larger than life. Can't think of any examples right now, though.

Yes, that's a new trend or something. There was an article about the newspaper about it this week. It's a combination of mom-daughter-bonding, new age crap and sex ed. I had no idea they did things like play the "Pin the Ovaries Game", though. WTF?

1626  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon DS on: January 02, 2009, 06:39:47 AM
Yep, crap marketing and crap distribution. Releasing it right before the holidays was kinda suicidal.
1627  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Did FFVII ruin RPGs on: January 01, 2009, 04:21:54 PM
Exactly. Even if one Final Fantasy is not my cup of tea, the next one may suit my tastes better. I'll get a decent game for my money in any case.
1628  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Did FFVII ruin RPGs on: January 01, 2009, 03:58:03 PM
Doesn't every new Final Fantasy fuel some internet rage? It's kinda surprising the series still has fans left, seeing how many express their disgust and say they'll never buy another Final Fantasy again. Of course, fans a fickle and some simply attach themselves to that glimmer of hope that the next game will be like their beloved IV/VI/VII/VIII/IX/X/XII...
1629  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon DS on: January 01, 2009, 03:35:42 PM
I spend six hours in a train to play it and I was satisfied. Crappy storyline, but great gameplay.

BTW I just finished my first online mode team "Shining Force" (my second team "Ogre Tactics" is a work in progress and will have critical hit rates of over 60% <3). Friend Code: 3437-7297-5164

I think we more or less agreed that Final Fantasy VII had some influence in terms of presentation, but that it had more influence on the players than on the genre itself.

I also think it's insane to claim that genres and their landmarks don't affect other genres. Street Fighter II practically defined how a character should relate in statistics. It was the first time we saw a big character like E. Honda move as he should compared to a leaner character like Chun Li. That had a major effect on games as a whole.

Was that really new at that time? It seems more like common sense to me. RPGs have always had stats that match characters (IIRC this was already visible in Fire Emblem animations on the NES) Street Fighter II was just one of the first game to take advance of new hardware.
1631  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Did FFVII ruin RPGs on: December 30, 2008, 01:40:59 PM
And at the same time Street Fighter 2 did not have any impact on the RPG genre. Your point...?

If Final Fantasy VII wasn't influencial in one way or another, we wouldn't be talking about it, now would be?
1632  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Did FFVII ruin RPGs on: December 30, 2008, 03:36:08 AM
I wonder how many of the then old-school fans are still around. Most fans on forums seem to be in their late teens, early twenties and that's usually to young to have experienced that period. I know I was just old enough to gether enough money together to buy discount SNES RPG's. I didn't even know the games I liked so much were called RPG's. I remember the Final Fantasy VII commercials, but since I had never played a Final Fantasy I was more interested in Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I bought Final Fantasy VII two years after release. I'm considered one of the old-school fans, even though I wasn't really there when the shift happened.

"Graphics don't matter!"

Those people never got their argument straightened out. "Graphics don't make or break a game" or "2D is not inferior to 3D" would have made sense, because they were trying to say games didn't need (realistic) 3D graphics too be good. "Graphics don't matter" is like saying "Well, you like Final Fantasy VII's graphics? You're an idiot for liking something of no importance! Go play Lunar if you want a good RPG!" and forgetting to mention one of the reasons you like Lunar are the colourful 2D graphics.

1633  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What are some RPGs where you play as the Villain? on: December 27, 2008, 05:11:05 PM
Suikoden III has an extra chapter that lets you play part of the game from the antagonists eyes.

In one of Vanguard Bandits paths you can switch to the Empire's side (which is evil, of course), but you still end up being the good guy.

Merry Christmas!

We do a lot for other people the rest of the year and Christmas is always " family first, screw the rest!" for us. Which means we give eachother really nice presents :D

I got:
-a small sewing machine
-two kumihimo discs (tools used for Japanese braiding)
-Growlanser: Heritage of War
-Watership Down
-2000 Wii points
-Wii classic controller
-We always have or sin too (Engrish book)
-carrying case for my DS
-a hat

Fun things that happened:
-the dog left a surprise in the living room for the first time in month. My sister discovered it when she stepped in it, right during christmas dinner. It was a very watery surprise.
-Someone gave the bathroom a present. The tag read "Mom Bathroom"

Not so fun:
-Growlanser was accidently given to my brother. He was surprised, because 1. he got a Xbox 360 for Christmas and 2. he doesn't like SRPG that much. The game was given to it's rightful owner the moment after he received it. Thanks bro :)
1635  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Breath of Fire fans, got some bad news. on: December 25, 2008, 07:47:35 AM
I really like Dragon Quarter, but I think it might have helped kill the series just because it was so radically different from the rest. Had it stayed to the original BOF I-IV style things might be different today.

I doubt it. The series would have died a silent death of mediocrity. With Dragon Quarter, atleast it went out with a bang. What sucks is that Dragon Quarter had some really good and original ideas and now we will never see those developed to their full potential.
