/vrpg/ is a place to discuss all types of role-playing video games, including single-player, multi-player, and massively multi-player, turn-based and real-time action, western-style and JRPG.

Does this mean RPGs are banned on other video game boards? No! /vrpg/ is just a separate board specifically focused on RPGs where discussions about your favorite games can thrive.

Please familiarize yourself with the rules and remember to use the spoiler function where appropriate!

Please note that, like /v/, "Generals"—long-term, one-after-the-other, recurring threads about a specific game are not permitted on /vrpg/. Such threads belong on >>>/vg/.


Post truth’s people don’t like to hear about a specific series, and or an individual RPG.

yeah no. funny how actually nothing has changed in terms of quality writing and today's standards haven't evolved in many cases. if left unchecked it will stay a shit story and cretins who chime in with their shitty ideas will make it only worse. a good narrative needs to be carved down from a block of marble like you're making a sophisticated figurine out of it. already can't wait for cringe TEStards to flood the thread and tell me about "le ebin lore" of TES.

Any game where the role is meaningful rather than self-imposed, so basically every game, as these features have degraded further and further with each new entry.

Are the complains against Fire Emblem Engage's artstyle legitimate or is it just ironic weebs complaining about an anime game looking too anime for the millionth time? Maybe it's because I'm used to JRPGs but I really don't see it as that different from the rest of the modern FEs...

Fine here you are

1. Children are weak, vurneable and easy to manipulate and taken advantage of by adults
2. Children barely understand themselves, are emotional and impressionable and have only some control over their actions
3. Children have barely any responsibility ot maturity, being children and all
4. Children are weaker and have no chance of defending themselves from an adult
5. All of these amplified when a child nears puberty and mostly thinks with its hormones

If you're a pedophile you're scum, simple as

"B-but people used to fuck children in the past and it was legal!!!"

What are some of the RPGs with the best marriage system for the player?


>pic related, skyrim marriage system was not awesome, but its cool that it had the option to marry
82 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>2789117
To be precise rather than wanting to rule, I want a trophy wife that is a trophy because she brings a right to rule or something like that instead of just looks. In case of pathfinder there is ruling and romances, but like already mentioned marriages are just an epilogue thing and more importantly a vast majority is in reality a downgrade where you as a king/commander marry one of your underlings ("companions"). Both games have one romance path each that could be seen as marrying up, but they are very specific and put a lot of limiters on your other choices.
>>2789122
Yeah, that works, but the feature is rather underdeveloped (courting is way more developed than the actual marriage where it's basically having a seneschal to take care of feasts and gifts, plus a relationship bonus with brides family that doesn't really lead to anything) and as such feels quite shallow as you can't marry into royalty or make meaningful alliances based on marriage. Does Bannerlord expand upon it?

The cabbage is the actual best because it's a nice romance with a narrative. Goats romance is literally just the red one trading in sex favors in exchange for protection until the end of the game where suddenly both declare they love you. Except it's so late in the game you don't even get to fuck the blue one and you get exactly one single conversation as a couple (as an ACTUAL couple in red's case).

Edgerunners got me thinking, would a cRPG/WRPG with a JRPG aesthetic work to have it break away with the more boring anime-ism tropes while keeping the anime feel intact?

So a JRPG where you are treated to a softcore sex scene or moral ambiguity associated with the Witcher or Cyberpunk.

It appears that lots of people didnt exactly understood the question. To answer - yes, yes it would work. It might work even better, since this aesthetic is easier done via 2d, or rathere "simple" 3d, thus leading to decreased resource expendature on fucking photorealistic textures of dirt under the nails of random hobo.

I think from my second DD release I learned a lot. For example if you let people move the camera away from units in a top down game they'll scan the entire map for shit that might not have spawned in yet and then wander aimlessly.

Group combat is one of the better parts. You can easily be overwhelmed by two people as they don't just take turns but rather try and swarm you. Positioning becomes the most important thing to try and limit how many can engage you at once.

The real signs of the dueling simulation crops up in the group vs group battles because the AI will break up into duels.

I think you just brushed up against Varg's autism, the fixed camera is to emulate concentrating on one person so enemies can and will get you from the back. The combos being useless is because that is true to real life, the fancy combos only work on people you don't need to use them on while the ones you do need can see it coming and block you.

What do you mean "How is it not?" Is tying your shoes complex? There is nothing present in SMT that cannot be easily figured out by a child. I had always assumed the difficulty meme was to give edgy kids better self-esteem. I was not aware that grown adults genuinely believed it.

I can't wait until you move there and see that it's nothing like Anime or persona and all but the same nightmareish dystopia of skyscrapers, concrete and dozens of ads and billboards as the western world or even worse, then you'll slowly die inside once you realise every gook is a souless bugman that lives only to slave away and spend most of his wages on escapism and consooming media, everyone expects you to suck off anyone who's above you on the social ladder and that you'll be constantly hated and discriminated for being a foreigner (and probably autistic) too, especially once they see you trying to get it on with their women.

Survivalist isn’t really the same as farmer they are simply the class that us most effecitve for gathering due to natural instinct.
Farmer was more involved than that because they have an entire kit built around take/chop/mine uses, ariadne thread as an ability, abilities to increase rare material gain and the ability to eliminate encounters entirely. These abilities all stacked making their design as pure material gatherers very clear, their combat side was good debuff support if you cared to actually take one in your main party, which would have the trade off of a slot being wasted in a character that can only provide decent support while being able to gather materials efficiently as you explore.
The early EO games rewarded you for exploring earlier floors again with a gathering team to gather resources, newer EO games made gathering a much simpler process so you don’t have to bother making a gathering team. EO3 was great because it gave you combat study in order to actually do this process without having to do an annoying grind for a team you won’t use to explore.
The issue some of the anons have in this thread is that they want to play the game with whatever class they want without having to resort to making a second party for activities such as gathering, its a vain and subjective argument but understandable. I wouldn’t call EO3s design bad in anyway since Farmers are perfectly useable in an exploration party. People need to get off the mentality that every class needs to perform similarly otherwise the game will truly be boring.

>The issue some of the anons have in this thread is that they want to play the game with whatever class they want without having to resort to making a second party for activities such as gathering
Indeed, which makes Nexus a game for them to seethe. Imagine not only being forced to make a 2nd party for gathering but also being forced to "waste" an equipment slot for the Memory Conch? Guaranteed 2000% Anger.
