    Re: Turned-Vased RPGs?

    Hurrah, common ground!

    But yeah, I agree. From a technical and visual standpoint it's very impressive, and I think it had some nice ideas behind it (e.g. the Phantoms as a whole). But IMO, the...

    Forgive me Lord, for I have sinned. But if I may thus entreat thee to inform this lowly mortal about the Phantasy Star Universe sub-series, in order to cover all bases of the limits of my mind. Are...

    Final Fantasy



    Heh, got that impression from various users. Though to be fair, I've seen the "black sheep" label just as often applied to FF9 as well.

    Heh, another opposite I guess, as most of the assigned texts at school were ones I enjoyed. Only exceptions I can recall were Heart of Darkness and The Tempest.

    As for Fellowship, yeah, taking it...

    Anyway, don't suppose any of you have any experience with the Phantasy Star series. I have the GBA collection on my "to get" list, but given how rare and...

    Funny, the scenery never really got to me in contrast. Could be because I've visited New Zealand more times than I can count, so have seen the scenery up front. Heck, I've even gone on tours to the...

    Heh. Don't worry, I hope to do so one day. It's like Doom, another game I feel I should at least be able to say I played.

    Any other thoughts on the other FF titles? When people give their best...

    The hell? I loved it how the dialogue had some actual life to it, as opposed to the books.



    I'd agree with you if we were talking about the animated adaptations, but the...

    Wait, I thought this was grid-based, not turn based?

    Well, I can add another two words - Golden Sun. Oh, and Final Fantasy X I guess, but it's the only FF I've played. Enjoyed it thoroughly, but...

    Re: What Are You Reading?

    I can get that, actually. Certainly LotR kind of feels dated conceptually, similar to Dune, how in LotR's case, it more or less spawned the genre.

    For me though, it was the opposite. The films...

    I'd read The Lord of the Rings first, if only because Wheel of Time is wearing its influences on its sleeve. That, and the pacing of both sets of books is pretty similar. Main difference is that...

    It's a possibility, but as I've mentioned, there's no set relationship between how gameplay affects story. There's plenty of games I've played where playing it after watching a playthrough has given...

    Not the first time Dune has been discussed, and TE and TU more or less gave the same feedback. For myself, I've only read book 1 of the first novel (per its section divide). That section by itself I...

    I'll save us some time and agree to disagree with Kaise. Game mechanics aren't the issue here, so I won't drag it out.

    Not sure what "tat" means, but fair enough. But I found the mission styles of both games far more engaging than the SC1 style, which was so often a case of "here's a map, have fun." I can enjoy that...

    I haven't said it's unreasonable, only that I think it's a bit much to say it's a concrete fact.
