A solid list, but I'm fucking sick and tired of people using their opinions on the Knights of the Old Republic games to bash the Star Wars prequels. They were actually better reviewed than the original movies were when they were first release, and the original trilogy isn't that fucking perfect, either, and I could list a ton of plot holes in the original trilogy.

I enjoyed this game to the point that I did all the post-game content, my only complaint is the missable maps/items. Fuck the haters.
303  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The power of branding on: February 24, 2010, 12:30:43 PM
Just about any RPG with a big brand name attached to it, like Final Fantasy, Zelda, and Mario, will get inflated review scores, regardless of their true quality, and because of that, I don't find mainstream game journalism to be remotely credible.
304  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What feature in one/few RPGs should they all have? on: February 23, 2010, 09:27:31 PM
Just let us fucking save the game anywhere. I think the argument that save-anywhere features make games easier is a load of bullshit, since games like The Dark Spire and the SaGa series prove otherwise. I think it's silly to believe that Japs don't experience shit like power outages or freezes in their games.

Suikoden's the only RPG series I actually play for the story since all games but Tierkreis take place in the same world, and each new entry expands upon the game's universe.

As for linearity/non-linearity, I find that linear RPGs tend to have better-developed plots, whereas non-linear RPGs tend to be lacking in that area. I don't mind non-linearity but not the "OMG where do I go next" kind like in SaGa Frontier, and don't mind getting absorbed for hours in sidequests, although I really think sidequests should add decently to the storyline.
306  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenosaga Episode II - Why does everyone hate it so much? on: February 09, 2010, 09:16:03 AM
I think the fact that battles take forfreakingever contributes to the hate. Episode III's my personal favorite.

I don't think mission-based gameplay lends itself very well to good storytelling, as it often makes the story feel disjointed.
308  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Yoshitaka Murayama Returning To Suikoden? on: February 03, 2010, 11:00:33 AM
blah blah blah
I'm really fucking sick of you fantards talking about Suikoden IV like it's a rape case. Yeah, it wasn't perfect, but it wasn't ZOMG TERRIBLE and I've certainly played far worse RPGs.

At least Caravan Heart has a fan translation, which I'll probably check out sometime.

i dunno about you guys, but i would like to see a pokemon with these kind of graphics, though the classical is still good, im starting to get sick of it
Definitely.
311  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nintendo reveals new RPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi and Monado becomes Xenoblade on: February 02, 2010, 11:31:54 AM
Is Xenoblade actually a Xeno game or just a different series?
312  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: No Saga 2 outside Japan? on: February 02, 2010, 11:30:25 AM
SaGa's not a very good series anyway, so this can stay in Japan.
313  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 on: January 27, 2010, 02:09:00 PM
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker I can honestly say was one of the worst Dragon Quest games I played, but it was still half-decent. Hope this improves on the first, though.
314  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Grandia Series on: January 25, 2010, 03:33:35 PM
From what I hear, the Dreamcast version is the only good version of the game.
315  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Vagrant Story sucks balls y/n on: January 25, 2010, 03:31:35 PM
Didn't care much for the game myself, given the horribly sluggish interface.
