Retro Encounter 182 – Job Search

Retro Encounter Generic Arrow Background

Character classes! Job systems! From Wizardry to Final Fantasy to World of Warcraft to Octopath Traveler, many RPG characters are defined by player-selected classes and jobs. In today’s episode we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of job systems in RPGs, mostly concentrating on Japanese RPGs in general and Final Fantasy in particular. There was so much to discuss that there are plans to record a Job Search Part II.

Get a job, sha na na na, sha na na na na, wa-hoo.

Featuring: Michael Sollosi, Audra Bowling, Greg Delmage, Peter Triezenberg
