How difficult is this game? Would the average 100 IQ (aka me) player be able to finish it without a guide?

When I was 7 I biked on the freeway across town, to get to Target, and buy the PSX version of the game. On the way home I waved to a police officer who told me biking on the freeway is illegal. He took me home. Keep that level of intelligence in mind when I ask my question.

I remember getting stuck at some point. Does the game allow for grinding and grinding to get past stages you're stuck on? I remember how hard this game was for 7 year old me and it's put me off of trying it since. I see everyone seem to love this game though so I'd like to give it another go. I am, however, a retard.

If you would like a SRPG for beginners I would definitely recommend Shining Force 1 and 2 for the Genesis/Megadrive. Excellent games and perfect entry points for people new to the genre. It allows you to leave any battle with a spell your main character has, you retain all experience/levels you gained so you can keep retrying the stage until you're leveled to the point where you can just brute force it instead of needing strategy if you want. Same happens if you fail the mission, there's no permadeath, you can revive all teammates.

Your picture is FFT Advance, which is not the same game as the PS1 and PSP FFT. Personal opinion, but I think the story of FFT Advance is pretty fucking lame. Enough for me to prefer the PS1/PSP game. Either way though, I think Disgaea is way more fun than any FFT game

>tone down random battles
>add some kind of fast travel (submarinemon and digmon do this terribly)
>provide a map of the circuit boards, downscale them or just remove them altogether, especially in the post-game
>make the post-game actually available in the US version, not just every other version
>make the legendary weapons less demanding to obtain in the normal part of the game
>make the legendary weapons not almost impossible to obtain in the post-game
>make different digivolutions not require an autistic grind
>don't make obtaining other starters dependent on your current digimon's level because it's possible to get locked out this way
>card game it great, but holy shit tone down the difficulty

I don't hate the game but so many mechanics in it are complete bullshit. I'm half convinced it was envisioned, designed and created as some generic MMO themed rpg and Digimon were shoved in after the fact. If you were to remove the franchise the story would be completely unchanged and the game would be at least 95% the same.

The intro for the N64 game is great:

I didn't think that the game was too bad in itself. It certainly did have its moments that pissed me off. LOW is a better game.

why is it so loved? i am not a big racing fan but this is advertised as a racing rpg and did pretty mediocre even by 2000s reviews.
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.

>>7645734

It's not loved. It's very obscure even in Japan, but its seeing a little bit of a revival now, for some reason. By revival I mean I've seen people post it 3 or 4 times instead of 0
>>
>>7645734
I tried it, apart from it being very stylish the racing didn't do much for me. I love a lot of racing games from the era, there's some awesome Saturn ones in particular - and so many on the PS1 but Racing Lagoon apart from looking slick doesn't do much in its first few hours. Maybe if it's properly translated it'll reveal a compelling game underneath; it is square after all. It's likely that a lot of people are attracted to it for its style and visuals however.

There's many more import only PS1 games you could keep an eye on. As for racing, it's a simpler game but Running High is a great time if only for short sessions.

It's an obscure game that's untranslated and only known because of being an oddity like a racing JRPG with a very stylish nighttime late 90's aesthetic
I'm actually surprised to see it posted

The DC used a battery, as did the Saturn.

What's weird is how dogshit they were. The Saturn had it easily accessible, because it only had a 2 year battery life at best. And the DC, for some reason, used a rechargeable battery with a lifespan of a few fucking months without power. But hey, it had that VMU bullshit with the constant beeping too, I don't think Sega understood power at all.

I've never had a CMOS battery fail in any other device during a reasonable lifespan.
