God Eater Resurrection: The camera is freaking terrible, and has often cost me missions, especially when fighting against multiple boss monsters.

Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! - I have the whole game world opened up to me now and have had a good fun exploring and battling other trainers.

Still working on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and have been having a lot of fun doing sidequests and such.

Also working on the Minion Quest in the 3DS Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and while a bit grindy, it's actually been rewarding with the story and all.

RPGamer's article on this said Persona 5 was released exclusively on the PlayStation 4. Yeah...

(Edit: They corrected it, finally.)

I look forward to new information that will eventually come.

I played through Let's Go Pikachu! and blazed through the endgame battles since I saved all my power-up items for the end. I definitely enjoyed it more than other mainline games in the series, and actually liked it more than Breath of the Wild. Not quite the Fire Emblem: Awakening of the series, but it sort of comes close.

I'm also working on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, and IMO it mostly does open-world gameplay right.

Sometimes the classics age horribly.
Very true. I managed to beat the last boss by spamming kicks (he was short, so they worked), since trying to execute moves just got me constantly beaten down.

I'm playing Shenmue as part of the PS4 collection with its sequel, and it's somewhat hard to think it was one of the most expensive games ever made, since it feels horribly unrefined in many aspects, like its red-herring plagued plot and direction, and subpar English voicework with horrible timing and bad writing.

I played The Banner Saga on Switch a few weeks back. Definitely had a good time except the lack of manual saving.

I deem the original Final Fantasy definitely to be unplayable by modern standards. At least its remakes would make it slightly more so.

I finished all four episodes of .hack//G.U. Last Recode, and am definitely glad it's over.

Still working on Toukiden: Kiwami, and just got to Chapter 9.

I didn't think the original VC was that easy, either.

I beat Vol. 1 of .hack//G.U. Last Recode, and my initial impressions on it largely remain unchanged. The Avatar battles really kept me on my toes, and some of the music is good, but I really hate having to sit through voiced cutscenes, the story for me seemed to go nowhere, the translation often seemed direct and the dialogue horribly redundant at points, the voicework was hit-or-miss (the females like Atoli seemed to get the worst VA), and the graphics I didn't think look all that polished.

I'm still cruising along in Toukiden: Kiwami, which is a tad repetitive with having to fight some of the same bosses over and over, but I really dig the soundtrack, and different equipment changing the protagonist's appearance is a plus by me.

I decided to invest some of my money into better armor for some of my characters in Romancing SaGa, and I think I've got a handle on some of the more powerful enemies.

Still waiting on next story missions in Kingdom Hearts Union X. Hope they wrap the storyline by the time KH3 comes out.

Right now I'm dividing my time among The Chronicles of Narnia, the Eve of Redemption series by Joe Jackson, and The Wheel of Time saga. I'm going through Narnia chronologically and finished off The Magician's Nephew; not sure if it could be adapted well to film unless they included tons of filler, but it was still a good origin story. Eve of Redemption centers around anthropomorphic dragon characters, and while I'm intrigued, I have a bit of a hard time remember what the characters actually look like. I'm through The Fires of Heaven in WoT and actually understood

, and am liking them more than I did previously.

.hack//G.U. Last Recode - On the first game right now, and I have to say, boy am I glad I didn't play these games during the PS2 era and waited on buying the collection on the PS4 for a discount, since while the gameplay's fine by me, the rest of it seems really phoned-in. No lip movement during most cutscenes? Unskippable text during most story scenes? Insufferable voicework? No real visual upgrade other than being made widescreen? Sorry, that's not my idea of a "remaster." Zodiac Age did it way better.

Romancing SaGa - All my characters have skills that hit all enemies, and I'm having a blast. I finished the quest regarding getting a feather from a giant bird's nest, which necessitated upgrading my climb ability.

Toukiden: Kiwami - On Chapter 7, going through the side-missions before taking on the story missions. I think the defensive playstyle is my favorite, since I get a little gauge that takes hits instead of my character's HP.

Saw a key plot scene for Claudia in Romancing SaGa, and ended up losing both her animal companions. Luckily, I was able to fill in the gap with two story characters, which now entirely compose my party, after finding I could actually travel to a large variety of locations.

In Chapter 5 of Toukiden: Kiwami, and am taking my time with side missions.

Played some more Toukiden: Kiwami, but am still in Chapter 4, despite spending more time than usual with the game.

I recruited a lizard man in Romancing SaGa and actually finished a quest to get a monetary reward, and I'll probably keep him since I sparked a powerful ability that hits all enemies for a good amount, alongside Claudia's bow skill that hits all foes.
