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...

i cant even tell what the fuck are you talking about but im going to clarify exactly where your bias is like the caveman you are. first you said art bad, then you linked artist to vtubers and then you said vtuber bad.
there you have without funnywords if you really want to criticize the visual value of the game you cant say artist bad because thats wrong and seriously if you look at the trailer you can tell whats is wrong with the artistic direction

I'm playing Kingmaker right now as an Earth kineticist with pic related as my portrait and its pretty fun. I just love roleplaying as an Earthbender. Wish the Earth element was more popular in games. Lightning, and fire get all the attention.

Getting tired of Earthbros always being depicted as slow and trudging imbeciles. Avatar gets it right with the Dai Li. Extremely mobile fighters that slide on the ground, cling on walls and ceilings, boosting their jumps with rock pillars. Actually using their mastery over the Earth (Which is everywhere) to improve their agility and speed.

>lightning gets all the attention
The best games with lightning are also the only two games with good lightning, Infamous 1 and 2.
Just like with melee weapons, the simplest one gets all the attention, so swords and fire. Also earth is stupid strong in Kingmaker lmao.

>HURR DURR grinding is da point of JRPGs

False, grinding was inserted into lower budget titles for cheap padding. Otherwise people would just play shitty mobile games and say Brave Exvius is the greatest RPG of all time because it's 100% grinding. The appeal of JRPGs is that they merge anime characters, console style adventure games, visual novels, D&D *inspired* combat, creative boss battles, puzzle games, etc… all in one. It doesn't excel at any one quality, but when done well it brings a variety to the table that no other genre does. It's basically a buffet: none of the food is that great but you get to fill your plate with a ton of random stuff. Plenty of JRPGs have been criticized for too much of one element: Too much talking, too much walking, too many encounters, too many mini games, too many puzzles. It's all about balance.

Grinding is not challenging, it actually undermines strategy. Grinding is not fun, it is mindless tedium. Novelty is fun. New encounters are novel, repeated encounters are not. Grinding was never beloved, it has always been criticized even in Japanese reviews. Further more, no Japanese review has ever praised a JRPG for being more grindy than others.

Dear grinding defender: You are a braindead autist who doesn't realize how unpopular his opinions have always been; You became attached to something that nobody else liked, then mistakenly projected your views onto the rest of the players. You desire a tedium simulator, because you are a NEET who has never done real work. But you're not a high functioning autist, because even they crave novelty; you're an autistic midwit who can be endlessly entertained by mindless repetition. Go back to your mobile games and stop annoying the rest of us.

Long intro, lots of dialogue and cringe weeb moments, backtracking a big map, menuing lots of time in menus and inventory and non-gameplay. Music is good and some action scenes are nice in the cut scenes. It's also chill with very easy combat and some neat gimmicks. Overall lots of fun if you like slow burn games to chill to.

Once you shred away all the layers of irony and take them completely unironically and earnestly, otaku games like everything compile heart like fairy fencer f, trillion, mary skelter, death end and re:quest, omega quintet and other similar games like demon gaze can be very emotionally touching.
Mine is pic rel but it could be anything from a story moment to that one time a weird build finally worked in a DRPG.
Though probably it's easier to find something like that in dungeon crawlers which have more build freedom than a story JRPG.

>Boring and lineal fetch quests with no interesting background
>Totally lack of roleplay. Your skills do nothing in dialogue. 99% of the quest don't have any important decision to make, or any ramifications, they are just do A>B>C>End.
>Boring click spammer combat. 0 mechanical skill or strategy required. The only thing that matters is having good stats and having a lucky dice
>Broken and simplistic but tedious to min/max progression
>Lifeless NPCs with zero personality
>Crappy and unrealistic dialogue system. Instead of talking to someone it seems that you're searching in a database for information

Is this game just all about exploring its supposed interesting world? I get it is a good sandbox, but then why its elitist fanboys think this is a magnus opus in the rpg genre?

I never have the patience to get past the late levels of the game. Early game is usually the most fun but after you've tried most builds and even if you commit to one it's usually just a question of heavy grind until you get those level caps. And the builds that rely on early game cheese are too gimmicky and unreliable either.
There's also quite a few roguelikes too and they do not really transfer the skill you've acquired down the line. I must have played dozens for hundreds of hours and every single one still offers something unique but it doesn't lend itself to basically not try and exploit it.
Is there anyone here that plays roguelikes "legit" and grinds for days/weeks without exploiting something? How do you find the time, energy, willpower to do that? I can understand having a podcast or something in the background but if you're gonna grind in a singleplayer game you might as well just go play an mmo.
Do you even commit to one roguelike or do you have several? How do you manage time for all of them?

A friend of mine started raving to me about how big a fan of immersive sims he is and how Bioshock is his favorite. I called him a retard because Bioshock has never been, and will never be, and immersive sim. It is a spectacle shooter with very low interactivity.

Which one of us is right? Is Bioshock an immersive sim or not?
