Thanks, i'll check this one out. Also I've never seen someone talking about FFVIII, I think it's just a love-hate vrpg. You instantly like it or you don't. Personally FFVIII needs a little bit of recognition.

Squall's journey is just really great.

>FFVIII
you only have to meddle a bit with the junction system and then it becomes an interactive visual novel (not a bad thing),
I really like how laid back the game becomes, such a relaxing experience

>Yeah, but DS is just too frustrating to play when you're playing retros or older RPGs because it's dual screen and especially touch screen
In Chrono Trigger you can get the old SNES style battle menu just by going into the settings and then pretty much forget about the touchscreen altogether. It's pretty much the perfect port unless you absolutely prefer the Woolsey translation or nitpick about the music not sounding 1:1 like the SNES version.

I played a free week trial. Here are my impressions:

Its mostly on rails mob grinding. You can even enable auto-pathing to the quest you are doing, and your character will run there on his own.

Then once you hit like 50 the xp gains slow down and you have to enable pvp to continue grinding to 60, if i recall correctly. Never reached higher than 50 myself.

At that point the game truly becomes a grindfest where u aoe grind.
The combat is good tho, and if u pick a fun class that you enjoy then its not so bad. In fact, the combat is the best part of the game.. or maybe its the visuals..

The world is fantastic to look at, visually the best MMO on teh market.

However the progression after this point was mostly about grinding and RNG-based loot improvement rolling.
This is where the p2w comes online. Like any MMO this game will steal either your time or your money, or both. Id say it requires about 200 dollars entrance fee to be competitive.

The price is a trap like that anon said. You'll be spending way more for convivences like pets picking up your drops and maybe some life skill boosting costumes. It's good if you wanna explore around without touching the cash shop for a buck.
>>
>>2202789
Real problem is there's no actual PvE content to speak of. You grind mobs and do some extremely token quests, but the entire game is geared towards PvP or life skills.
>>
>>2202789
if you don't plan to spend hundreds of dollars to stay relevant just accept you're a casual player and you might have fun with the game.

>You know this game beat the ever-loving shit out of other games for PS1, right?
I don't know if I agree with that because PS1 is just a very strong console for JRPGs. I played lots of great ones without even touching for example Xenogears or Suikoden 2.
But I will say Dragoon has a lot going for it. Because of the high standard it meets in many areas it is probably the closest thing in quality to the mainline FF titles.
I'd say its biggest strengths other than its audiovisual production are all the unique gimmicks it executes successfully and its engaging story.

in no particular order this is a list of games I'd like to play.
they aren't all RPGs but most are. a lot of these games I've started but never finished, so I'd like to go through this list and start fresh and actually finish them.
given my taste here, do you guys have anything to add? I may have already played it, but I'd love to hear your suggestions.

Avellone only worked on Fallout 2 and New Vegas. And even on Fallout 2 it was after Cain quit because of creative differences with Black Isle. I just don't know why he's attached himself so much to an IP he doesn't own and wasn't around for the creation of.

That's similar to what I was thinking. If I made a Fallout game I'd make it more post apocalyptic and do that simply by placing the game in a different location, further in the past. I could repeat some ideas and some themes of earlier Fallout games by having a vault dweller be sent out to get search and retrieve something vital for the vault. Then I could involve family and get it entangled with factions, a war, and cynicism. The game could be set earlier on when there are fewer living people and less developed society except for coming across other vaults. Oddly despite the lack of societies people aren't as far removed from civilization, since it hasn't been as long since the bombs dropped and therefor there's a larger seeming disconnect between how civil and educated the characters seem and their situation and their willingness to do anything to survive.

I ran out of games to play with my 3080 since all new games suck, so I discovered this cringey anime shit thanks to /vrpg/, hate it at first, but at 4K/120 the game looks quite nice now I'm a full blown weebo. I guess anime its an acquired taste...

I am reaching the end of Trails IV and feeling kind of traumatized. I have Tales of Arise installed, guess I'll play that next. Can someone give a definitive JRPG list, is Ys any good, where do I go form here

play Sengoku Rance first, as it is an amazing game in its own right even if you removed the H stuff. It will give you a feel for the series.
Then play the others when you want to fill in the rest of the overall story. I started with SR, then moved to Rance Quest, and am now going back to the older titles. The games are self-contained enough that you can play them in any order.

>You can't, like Skyrim, simply go "I shall be a warrior" and put on some armour, grab a sword, and go charging about
You can, though. Most skill trees aren't tied to your class, so you can use any weapon or armor type. Destruction staves also can be any of the three elements.
>>
>>2202871
To an extent, rending your class selection mostly pointless. Which is my point, that it half-asses its freeform gameplay, and half-asses its class system. Worst of both worlds. Spellcasters get hit hardest though because unlike something like WoW with its spectrees, you would have to create a new character to go from Fire to Ice, say. Or just use a different element staff, like you said, and simply ignore your inherent skill set.

It is unintuitive and ugly design.

People play it for the first time ask questions like "What's a Dragonknight mean to be" "What's a Nightblade?" and their answer is "Anything you want it to be" which again brings back the question of why bother with classes at all if each of them have no real identity. And so people drop the game because instead of intuitively grasping how to attain the playstyle or archetype they want they are greeted with an indifferent shrug.

I get that for a small group of people this works for them, but it lacks mass appeal and squandered the opportunity they had coming off the back of Skyrim's success.

>It is unintuitive and ugly design.
>If you want to be a fire mage, pick the fire magic class.
Is this just a "not WoW, therefore bad" post in disguise? The classes clearly have identities or else you wouldn't be complaining about them being good at different things.
>>
>>2202855
In this iteration of the universe 'pure' melee simply can't keep up, warriors can trivially augment themselves magically and not doing so makes them equivalent to an animal.
>>
>>2202898
The game should do a better job explaining to new players that classes give you some unique abilities but they can more or less be used in any major role tank, damage, or support. I think there should be some better advice as to what to play if you want your character be less magical seeming. You're right that quite a few people will want that. Ironically it's the sorcerer class that I find to have some at least somewhat subtle abilities that fit a warrior, like dark deal, critical surge, and the passive bonuses from bound armaments.

Every class does have an identity of sorts in that they have an elemental theme, they have certain unique strengths, and they can have a different playstyle within various roles based on how their unique abilities work. You can make a caster use destruction staff, mage guild, soul trap, undaunted, vampire, and psijic abilities, but a bunch of their abilities should come from their class (even if they don't have to) and therefor will be influenced by class.

It is actually well done. You seem to demand either completely classless so no big interesting choice of theme or completely class locked so very little further customization. While you prefer either of those extremes, there are people who enjoy a reasonable compromise between them. I found ESO extremely fun as a new player being able to just try out and explore different gameplay as I went along.
