The thing about the Witcher 2 is, that while the screens look great, it really starts to shines when you see it all in motion.

This may sound strange to some of you, but Id actually like to see some modern games remade into retro styled 2d sprite based games or "retrofied" if you will. Suikoden 3 with a Suikoden 1-2 style and battle system would be great for instance.

I don't think its a matter or naming their favourite games, its just that games people like are easier to think off. Its a matter of differently interpreting what "modern fantasy" actually is.

I'm actually considering it. Thinking about SFIV arcade edition as well, since its not that expensive. On a side note, do any of the Capcom fighters use an online activation code like MK or will a used copy work just fine?

This poll essentially proves that gamers, as a collective, are the equivalent of an eight year old little princess throwing a temper tantrum over not getting that pony. That's right, if you combine these people into one being, they form Kanye West.
I'm going to go ahead and credit Activision Blizzards high rating to WoW nerds, upset over some "horrible injustice" their blue text oppressors inflicted on them.
EA, well...no surprises there, nor do I particularly disagree on that one. Its a reputations that took years to build up.
What I find as hilarious is that Sony, for instance, leaked millions of credit card numbers and private data, yet Capcom is still higher. Granted, Sony did handle the situation and apologized, but Id say negative backlash towards something like that is a lot more justified than crying over a game that didn't get made.
Capcom is no saint, and they've made some poor choices the last few months. I for one have complained about a lot of these issues and will continue to do so, but lets not get crazy here.

I think he meant the post he was quoting, not the entire thread.

Eh, sure, why not. Though with all cameo characters floating about fighting games these days,  they could put Barney the Dinosaur or Gumby in, and I wouldn't be too surprised.

I'm still wondering if I should do my first playthrough.

Bastion?

Its a matter if personal preference I guess, but I still say MM Legends isn't worth all the fuss. This is basically an invitation for Capcom to make a half assed game and overcharge for it because people will now blindly buy it just for the sake of "getting their way".

Dam you all, I may have to dig up my copy of FFIX and actually play through it. I HAD OTHER PLANS!...

I'm well aware of what was available during the "golden era".  But no I haven't gone into the archives and made an excel spreadsheet side by side comparison.

You don't need to, its fairly obvious even at first glance. A jRPG used to be something you dug through a pile of just to find the good titles, now its something you look for just to find anything at all.
748  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 1UP: Why the Golden Age of JRPGs is Over on: July 22, 2011, 05:28:20 PM
jRPGs are alive and well in Japan, they just stopped making it out of their motherland. The few that do are the streamlined piles of disappointment that I whine about every so often on these forums.

Then you obviously haven't been following the DS and PSP.

I have, and I consider handhelds as the last bastion for commercial jRPGs outside of Japan. You however, don't seem to understand how slim this selection actually is compared to what I will lovingly refer to as "the good old days".

I still say BoF is more "fantasy" than it is "modern".
Id say that Wild Arms got closer to this kind of setting with every game.

This applies to the AAA big budget titles that is. There's a ton of old school indie jRPG style games floating around the web. A lot of them are bad, but they still get made.
