I don't want to feel like the party popper but I do have a genuine question for Etrian Odyssey fans.
What makes this series good in say comparison to other grindy RPGs ?
When EOII, if I'm not mistaken, was released I looked it up and all and thought it might be good but then I found out it has a kick in the nuts difficulty, areas that are more like mazes and correct me if I'm wrong but high encounter rate, right ?
Sure there are a lot a people who enjoy a good classic style RPG, I do so myself, sometimes, but reason such as those were the ones that made me (in a way) not like a game that remembers me of EO, SMT: Strange Journey.
So, I'm all for opinion because if it's good I'd like to at least try it out!
