Altina is the best party member in the entire Cold Steel sega. Not only in terms of usefulness and utility but also character development.

It's just like the people who describe themselves as "into femdom" but are really just lonely vanilla dudes who fantasize about a girl doing all the social/sexual heavy lifting. Mention any femdom hallmarks and they'll squeal about how disgusting/off-putting it really is to them.

1-5 are great but I think 6 is when they really started to get ambitious
They didn't succeed in all areas, like you said the Esper system is half-baked and ends up devolving gameplay to magic spam and undermining the individual character abilities, but the operatic theming, sheer amount of content, Uematsu going ham on the soundtrack, all of it comes together

Technically true I suppose, but Humans do exist once interbreeding between clans dilutes their heritage too much, or they "renounce" their clan inherited powers.
Everyone from Ryu's village in the first game are technically human since they gave up their dragon powers, and Nina's entire race took a hit when she fucked the original Ryu and their mixed kids all lost the ability to turn into giant birds which spread throughout the entire wing clan.
I don't think Nina even has wings in BoF5 because they degenerated so much.

Kimahri's a mixed-role character in a game that has great rewards and absolutely no punishment for specialization - he gets outpaced in pretty much every role he can fill.

What I mean is, they never tackled anything of the scale that a fully open world, first person immersive RPG with custom player characters would imply.
Witcher has some good element of choice, but Geralt is still his own person. The open world in Witcher 3 is large, but you can barely interact with it in any meaningful way.
V having a voice actor and the way he talked in the first E3 trailer is what threw up big red flags for me.

Haven't picked this game up in three months. I remember liking the combat, and Geralt's pretty badassm but the whole "fetch me ten drowner dicks from the swamp" sidequests over and over again just burnt me out. Only reason I picked it up in the first place was because I heard the second game was way better, and I wanted context for it before I played it.
>>

>fully open world
No true Scotsman?

>first person immersive RPG with custom player characters
Geralt was 'custom', if fact, he is way more custom than any bullshit character you could make in Skyrim, for example.

>you can barely interact with it in any meaningful way
This means fucking nothing.

Anyone else have a soft spot for the first FF protagonist to actually have a personality? Given the limitations of the SNES/Super Famicom he didn't really quite get the exposition that later protags would get but he's more three dimensional than even many modern RPG heroes. He may not be the FF hero but he was an important one.

He's my favorite FF protag.
>>
>>1649557
True, honestly the Cecil arc is fine as it is. The Kain act is the one needs to be cleaned up, currently he flip flops too much. He needs one clear betrayal and one clear redemption instead of three small ones.
That or weave the small betrayals better into the story, and make his arc about how you can't always shake the sins of your past and the demons that haunt you in a single spectacular act, but that you may need many small attempts and false starts before you can finally break through.
>>
Cecil felt like one of the few fully realized adults in the franchise and it was shocking to learn he was only 20 years old. Just an amusing contrast to other protags who are around the same age.

That said, and the usual notion of "japan cant into age" aside, its hilarious and interesting imagining his growing career as a fucking child soldier + dark knight. Then again, we have FF8...
>>
>>
>>1649701
FF8 is not that bad? Squall is just graduating from military high school (really should be college, but this isn't so egregious). He leads a squad of basically equals because he is the top scorer among them. Quistis is too young to be a teacher and this is an actual plot point. Squall being made to take charge of the Garden during the fight with the other one makes no sense and that's also pointed out.

yeah you are always going to miss some story related cutscenes/quest i think they are not yet implemented but there are mods that can let you choose some origin characters and they have new scenes, like the vampire fag having a nightmare where he remember (dreamt?) his master and beg to spare his companion

Why do semi-boss enemies in this game have like +18 attack bonus when you can with martial class reach +7, AC of 27 when you can have 21 with tower shield and fullplate and spells that minimum deal 50 damage when your maximum HP is 45 on high hit dice?
I have completed the game using minmax builds but anything other than minmax seems to be assblasted on solo.
