It's easily one of the best looking PS1 games. The sprites are amazing.But why is the plot so dull? They put so much effort into everything but making it interesting.
>>9280407Wave Warrior EXE is canon.It gratuitously copied this game
RPGs don't really have interesting plots.
>>9280416I remember really enjoying the plot of Breath of Fire II but it was a long time ago and it's the only one I played.
>>9280407This. 3 was interesting all the way from beginning to end, but 4 I had to keep pushing myself to get through. Eventually I just gave up once you reach the area where you're at the highest point of some tower trying to escape on a kite canoe thing.
jrpg plots are written by people who were considered too awful to write for anime. let that sink in
>>9280473>3 was interesting all the way from beginning to end, but 4 I had to keep pushing myself to get through.Opposite for me.I actually didn't finish 3 because I got bored shortly after the lighthouse.I've replayed 4 a couple of times.
>>9280407The key is to focus on the fishing.
nah sorrybest graphics go to silent hill
>>9280407I found it boring until about 10 hours in, so maybe give it some time.
>>9280407Just play III instead
>>9280407I must admit that it is weaker than the previous three games
>>9280416They often make for cool summaries, but suck while playing. Good mechanics and art make an RPG
This game has been on my backlog for so long. I love III. Hearing it's boring takes a big burden off my shoulders
>>9280473>>9280485I liked neither 3 or 4.
>>9281509The intro is too long and slow, I tried replaying it and even with a fast-forward button on my emulator I couldn't bear the tedium.>but it gets good after 8 hours!!!Ok no
>>9280478ROFL I need to write that one down
Is the entire board full of offsite faggots now?>PS1 JRPG is slow at the startYeah no fucking shit. Take your ADHD meds zoomies.
>>9280407Bad translation. The Japanese original is a good game. This is very common.
>>9280478lurk moar newfaggot
>>9280485>>9280473Half of 3 was completely pointless.
>>9281760>>PS1 JRPG is slow at the startthat's a legit flaw and sign they haven't aged well, many older 16bit jrpgs aren't bogged down like that and newer jrpgs have "quality of life improvements">meds if you don't like flawed crapstockholm syndrome
>>9281765how is it a bad translation?
>>9281810Don't bother. Someone ran out of bait to post in the EOP thread that's up and now they're crawling for scraps on the rest of the board.
>>9281509well 4 is more polished and does things better than 3 does. It's more serious and has a darker tone than 3 so I definitely would check it out if you really liked 3.
>>9281778this there's no reason jrpgs should be slow and fans shouldn't not condition themselves to endure garbage pacing
>>9280478You told on yourself with "let that sink in".
>>9280407that one scene around the end when rei had to killed elina invoked some emotions in me ngl. first and only time a game did that to me.
>>9280407>>9280473I liked them both, don't remember being bored.
>>9282019>fans>don't actually like the games as they are and want to change themRope yourself.
>>9282265I had similar reaction in 2 with Nina’s sister
>>9280407I think 3's gene system did a lot to keep people interested. 4 dragons suck
God forbid half the people in this thread attempt to read a book.
>>9281760I’m convinced the majority of anons here have never played a real PS1, let alone anything older. They came here primarily to talk about how PS2 looks “so unique” or something equally retarded and false.
>>9282513Yeah but the combo magic and the fact you have all 6 members with you at all times makes for a lot more fun combatThe gameplay of 4 was definitely more enjoyable than 3
>>9280407Worked for me when I was a kid because of the super cool combo system. Loved to spend hours on end grinding combos on those trees at the endgame.BoF games were always kinda childish storywise, it's a mark of the series as a whole.
