Vagrant Story is definitely in my top 10 favorite games. However, there are a lot of aspects of the game that are not user friendly at all. e.g. combining weapons and armors, balancing enemy type and elemental weakness, and how important certain spells are to use. Given the difficulty of the game, these issues can make it very difficult to get into for many players. However, The dungeon exploring is top notch. Definitely a worthy game in the genre of Metroidvania. And the plot is so good, even if much remains unexplained upon the conclusion.
