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.

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.

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
322  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?
323  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.
324  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.
325  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.
326  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.

Plus, you can always fall back on your Dragon powers if you're having trouble at points.
328  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Grandia Series on: January 25, 2010, 10:33:20 AM
Supposedly Grandia Online is in the works, but I haven't heard anything otherwise.

I personally found the PSX port of Grandia to be incredibly sloppy, given frequent freezes and slowdown, and the awful voice acting, but then again, my discs were a tad scratched.

I actually think it got delayed to early March.
330  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play games a day? on: January 25, 2010, 10:31:44 AM
I actually have a very methodical system of playing games, I try to play each I'm working on for at least an hour a day, and I work on other hobbies such as art, writing, and reading.
