Why hasn't japan made any 1st person RPGs of the, and may Allah forgive me for using that term, "immersive sim" style when it's obvious that's the next step in the evolution of the genre?
Why are 1st person RPGs comparitevly rare in general when you factor out the bethesda brand of bland blandness?

First-person games in the modern day are a lot more expensive to make. Since you can see everything up really close, a high fidelity of asset is required to maintain immersion. The more zoomed out the camera is, the less fidelity is expected as the individual assets become harder to see - in fact, low quality assets may be beneficial and help the game to run better.

This is why, since the current gen started, you've seen so many shitty licensed tactics games (Peaky Blinders, Dark Crystal, Narcos) - with how zoomed out the camera in these games are, they can get away with a lot in terms of asset quality and reuse.
They are filthy consoleniggers and games with 1st person on consoles are harder to play and prove that gamepad is inferior.
I've observed that styles of RPGs fit pretty nicely into Orson Scott Card's MICE quotient (http://www.sfcenter.ku.edu/Workshop-stuff/MICE-Quotient.htm). As such, I propose we rename the genres accordingly:
JRPGs and most JRPG-likes: ERPGs (Event RPGs), as generally speaking they focus on an idea or ideological conflict
WRPGs and most WRPG-likes: CRPGS (Character RPGs), as they most often focus on building a character and fulfilling a role
Eurojank and most Eurojank-likes: MRPGS (Milieu RPGS, Milieu meaning world or setting) as they tend to focus on exploring a world and its worldbuilding.
I think those cathegories are too general and there's too many exceptions to have them in consideration. At the end we have our perception conditioned to what games we had here and were succesful in our market, so FFVII becomes some sort of standard when it doesn't necessarily had to be like that.
I read once that you can find more differences between two japanese rpg's than between a jrpg and a wrpg and the more games I know the more I tend to agree. I preffer to use more words or refering to other games more than using labels that are too limiting.

Is this a good entry into FF? My only experience with the series was playing a bit of VII a while ago.

XIII is not better, shut the fuck up. I'm not saying it's bad, there's worse games in the series for sure but it's not better than X
What does it matter? None of the games is connected anyway, except for a few exceptions.

ITT: games that let you play as a psionic

not sure what you mean by character grinder
Underrail can be hard if you make a shitty build (spreading your skills too much). However pure PSI builds are very easy to play and really strong. So strong that they are going to be nerfed in the coming update, so might as well experience them now.
Fireball is a spell that creates fire. Pyrokinesis is about controlling fire that already exists.
that depends on how lazy the game designers are
Would you consider cipher psionic?

Looks a whole lot better than it did. Cyber samurai kino may be possible now.
I play a decent amount of racing games but even I still need to play a game myself to get a real feel for the handling so I won't know how it really feels until it's out and I can try it myself or final comparisons can be made.
Yep, Refused is just not on the level. Why the fuck did they take such a memorable melody and made it into some throwaway screaming song?
Any news about VR support yet?
they want the zoomer audience.

So SoA is pretty fun. Burned it cause I heard it was one of the best rpgs for the dreamcast. Is this true? I havent played any other, any good rpg recommendations for the dreamcast?

The soundtrack in that version is ass though. Otherwise, I would recommend that. It really just depends on what you like more.
I really liked this game as a kid but going back to it as an adult I have to admit how bland and generic it is.
you can mod to change the soundtrack
That's the appeal though like Legend of Dragoon they don't make it like this anymore.

All good
Is anyone else bugged by the lack of acting by the characters in the released gameplay? In the first Bloodlines, every character was mad expressive. They moved their faces, hands, bodies.
Meanwhile the B2 characters shown were just standing there, their faces barely moving, their bodies and hands still.
I hope they're working on that.

>Might makes right, survival of the fittest
>Believe in tradition/the old ways
>Hierarchical power structure based on age, wealth, power

Unironically a weird setting to try and make woke. The first game had solid writing to fall back on, that's my concern. I don't care about the politics of a game if it's written well but I have zero confidence in the writing being competent.
Nah I noticed it too. It just seems like bad mocap this time. Source engine did face animations really well so it's not surprising that it's not as good this time with them using UE4 instead of Source. Pretty disappointing since the great character animations were something that people still talked about and brought up when talking about how modern games have gone backwards.

What's your favorite ARPG?

Mine is kingdom hearts 2 final mix. But I'm hoping that SMTV will be similar to the smt raidou games, would be fun to break the turn based cycle again

>Mainline action game
Take it easy on the alcohol bro.

But as a real answer to the question, of all fucking things, Code Vein. Somehow I ended up enjoying that more than every platinum game, DMC and KH2FM.
its not an RPG if you cant make your own character and are forced to play a premade one, like in witcher or uncharted
Nioh was fun but Nioh 2 is so much better it’s not even funny. The nitty gritty autism in character building puts most modern RPGs to shame with its depth and potential, all while being a fairly deep action game in and of itself.

Anything you want out of Bravely Default 2?
86 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
same thing I want from all FF5-esque class systems: unique and weird abilities from each class
I thought BS2 had some pretty well-designed random battles in parts, and shit ones in others. There were a lot of places where there was a good mix of difficulty and counterability. The best part about it was that Astrologian had an ability to prevent ambushes, which removed the most frustrating aspect of BD's fights, getting oneshot without a chance to react.

Then they ruined it by including random unavoidable fight chains and counterattacks on completely random enemy types. Why is it sometimes the katana that counterattacks and sometimes the shield guy? Nobody knows. Hated the fucking hot spring cave, too. So much potential for cool battle modifiers, and two of them are just "kill the enemy in 1 turn or lose the fight". And the fucking berserk area, my god.

I never felt that single battles were unrewarding, but it was hard to argue with the results when you could do two battles and get the effect of three. Certainly made me feel more incentivized to turn encounters off, skip through the dungeon, and do 3-4 fight chains right at the end.
I just want it to be playable on PC with a decent interface and not cost $95 and ship with six layers of DRM.
I dont really understand, is Bravely Default like a Final Fantasy spin-off?
It was meant to be a sequel of FF the four heroes of light but it became its own thing halfway through the game's development so yes and no. It's meant to be the equivalent of oldschool FF games.

Melia has a stick so far up her ass she can't even arch her back while taking it from behind and Shulk is too easily caught up in his own thoughts and needs someone to pry for his input.

Fiora is the nosy kind of person who can open up Shulk like a book and have him pour out honestly.
wouldn't it be easier to just admit that you're projecting yourself onto shulk instead of making an idiot out of yourself by trying to win an argument by namecalling
You think Egil would be cool with Dunban fucking he sister? Like after he decides to live in peace with the people of Bionis.
Sure, why not, I mean it is Dunban

Say what you wantabout Final Fantasy, but at least they're always trying something new.

I can guarantee you the next Shin Megami Tensei game will revolve around a blank slate avatar and exactly 3 other human characters who will be generic Law/Neutral/Chaos stand ins and will have no personality other than "hurrr look who lawful/neutral/chaotic I am". Gameplay will be the exact same shit it was since fucking Megami Tensei 1.

Square is right: the West has exactly zero tolerance for turd-based combat. It's objectively proven by how much """better""" turn-based becomes by skipping attack animations.

It's almost as if turd-based fans want to play an action-based combat where their button timings don't matter.
Where’s the FFXV combat system webm?
>Falcom game talked about more
I honestly have no idea what you're talking about so I'm going to assume it's some autistic general thread that has 3 people obsessing over said game 24/7, and you're very likely one of them.
