    I loved all of those golden era JRPGs. Earthbound's dialogue quality is right up there with Planescape Torment for me.

    Agrul I'm gonna need you to play Chrono Trigger and FF6 if you haven't. Most modern JRPGs are anime trope trash unfortunately, but Undertale is worth playing.

    i played a fair bit of chrono trigger a few years ago on an emu. never did ff6 though, and never finished chrono trigger. i should go back to it / play ff6 for sure

    the anime trope thing is exactly why i got bored of the first 3d legend of heroes game. the first few games followed some reasonably unique characters with decent story arcs, but right after the graphics upgrade it's set in a literal fucking high school and you play as a nice guy with a dark secret slowly building your anime harem. all the characters were just so god damned bland and cookie-cutter

    also maybe i wasn't crazy about the switch to 3d, kinda dug the old-school isometric look

    This is why I can't do modern JRPGs. Persona has decent writing but it still feels like you're in a young adult novel filled with anime tropes. Western RPGs have their own problems of feeling like shitty LOTR/GoT clones.

    Have you played FFT? That one holds up too. It's basically a violent Shakespeare tragedy and the mobile port is actually good.

    I'm currently playing through persona 5. While I enjoy the game mechanics, I dislike the story and setting of the game.

    The mechanics are keeping me playing though

    Super mario RPG is def better than FF7, but since they're remaking ff7 and not Mario RPG I'll still buy it.

    I've never played a ff game but I can state with total confidence that the story is awful

    As somebody that has waited ~20 years for a resolution, I'm just glad that it's over. It was originally supposed to be a trilogy...

    Didn't they outsource the directing of the last season to Hollywood? No wonder we got an action-packed but incoherent ending.

    The directing was mostly good. It was the writing that was terrible and became more problematic as the plot advanced beyond the books.

    Big GRRM has subverted our expectations yet again by working on that new Dark Souls game (Elden Ring) instead of finishing his god damn books.

    GRRM has been dead to me for years. I'm going to sound like a broken record, but I really hope they improve the gameplay in the next Dark Souls. It was a fun concept, I enjoyed some old skool RPG difficulty. However, the clunky combat, where you were locked into long animations and one rash move could kill you, really got old. You also want to feel powerful and go on the offensive at some point in RPGs, but in Dark Souls you were always on the defensive.

    u mean to tell me that dodging and dying a lot isn't fun?

    I should really play a full DS game to judge. MHW was fine. Had the clunky animation locks and punishing difficulty, but there were some fast weapons so you could get your shit in and still feel powerful.

    I like how this Dead Cells game does it. You have to time dodges, but all of your combat options feel responsive and satisfying.

    Dead Cells is so fucking smooth, one of my favourite combat systems.

    dark souls gameplay is fine you're just not good at it lol

    sekiro's controls are completely different, it's a design decision and no being all powerful is the opposite of dark souls which is a battle against being overwhelmed.

    Serious Sam on harder difficulties is also a battle against being overwhelmed, and it is much more enjoyable. Dark Souls is more of a survival horror take on RPGs.

    I'm betting that's a miscommunication or mistake rather than how they actually planned to announce their next big game. Seems way too random.

    Regardless, I don't have any interest in fighting games. The only modern one I've played is Smash and that was mostly for the RPG-like story mode.
