Cmon..Rob.. If I wanted to be like Spoony I could tear FF6 apart, any game/movie really.... Sorry for the strong language but well I just can't, it's one of those things that just makes livid..
I like you.. but be consistent, it's not like the JRPG's you worship don't have a lot of the immaterial, inconsequential things Spoony likes to obsessively nitpick about for the lulz.
Let's just use here a quick example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCAWW2PCvvA
I could spend 30 minutes being a snobby pseudo intellectual talking about how stupid that is. But im not gonna do it because you know.. it's pedantic.. and other things..
Also FF2 for all it's balancing issues, it's a game ahead of it's time with amazing music, great artwork, atmosphere and a rather impressive story contextually/historically.
And let me use an example of one of his complaints to demonstrate how shallow his reviews are:
He complains about Yu Yevon being a tick and a ridiculously easy "last boss".. But he is completely missing the point. Yu Yevon is a tick for story reasons, it's not likle they decided "HERP DERP LETS MAKE YU YEVON A TICK BECAUSE WE ARE MAKING A STUPID GAME WITH A BAD LAST BOSS ON PURPOSE ASKJDASHNDAS".. It's to symbolize that he is a parasite to society, it ties in to the whole theme of FF X about ignorance, dogmas and corrupt religion. Besides he is not really the last boss in a gameplay sense you can't lose against him again, by design choice, kinda like you how Cloud Omnislashes Sephiroth to death(in his mind) at the end of FF7... because he is a parasite and the characters were able to escape the cycle of ignorance, acceptance and despair of Spira, it's sort of a battle of wills and principles. These brave characters who decided to go against the dogmatic teachings can't possibly lose to such a parasitic, pathetic being who refused to admit defeat and die back in the great war a thousand years ago out of pettyness and other things. It's symbolic and it's extremely well thought out and a perfect culmination of everything the game set out to do.
Very cynicism, such review, wow.
Also I started to play Dark Souls, partially because of how you guys talk about it every time. Im loving it, currently in Anor Londo, melee character, I ain't "cheating" :P
