          Is anyone else made uncomfortable by this sort of thing? Not the e-girl rape itself exactly, but the fact that they add sexual abuse undertones to an otherwise lighthearted fantasy series. Japs seem to love doing this shit and it rubs me the wrong way every time.

            The dark stuff hits harder because of how generally happy the series is. Cold Steel did away with the dark aspects almost entirely and it feels toothless and lacking in realism because of it.

    The first game was fun enough. The second was boring and went full edgy shounen (I made it to the murder e-girl and noped the frick out). Unfortunately, the first game's ending is a cliffhanger, so it's not like you get any satisfaction from pretending the first game is the only game. I give the whole series a 0/10. Go frick yourself.

          I've always felt that as well even as someone who likes Cold Steel. I didn't mind the high school setting for one game but getting away from that in 2 and then immediately going back in 3 just felt like the series was spinning it's wheels which is a hell of a thing for a series as verbose as trails.
          Rean even acts like just another student most of the time so it doesn't even play off that aspect well cranking it to Musse was the only thing that kept me going.

            CS really makes wonder what the ratio of well-planned to impromptu ideas was for the series at the time. I know the Erebonia arc went through multiple revisions and was something that Falcom had been trying to do since FC's development, but I can't imagine the final product being anything like what they initially conceived.

    breasts: FC is good if you like slow burn stories. Has one of the most unexpected twists I can remember and SC was good too. I don't remember much about the third game outside of the e-girl rape. I liked them mostly for the characters and writing, the gameplay didn't stand out to me. I haven't had the courage to play past that because I remember the reception Cold Steel got years before the haha posters existed and it still doesn't look particularly good, and all I've heard about the story makes it sound like it jumped the shark years ago.

    It is a pretty devisive series that you will either love or hate. Hell, even amongst fans, individual arcs are pretty divisive as well (I personally think some of these people go a little too far).
    It is basically a long running, multi arc shounen anime in JRPG form. Yes, it is anime, yes, it is tropey. Different arcs have different decades/styles of anime they tend to take inspiration from.
    Additionally, the story/plot DOES get inreasingly ridiculous and convulted, but how could a 1000 hour anime JRPG series plot not?
    Another barrier to entry - this is not a series where things are constantly happening and the plot is advacning. I personally wouldn't call it filler per say, but yes, there is a lot of time spent just on slice of life stuff. The characters hanging out and intercting with each other, maybe going on a vacation or something.
    Another unique point of contention, the NPCs. Nearly every single NPC has 1-2 lines of dialogue that get updated after every single time the story advances. Most of these are named, and you can follow thier (admitedly pretty normal) livrs throughout the games. NPCs who appear in literally the first game, Sky FC, appear in Kuro 1, the 2nd latest installment.
    Honestly despite people shitting on it for being a so called "generic" anime series, there simply isn't, for better or for worse, another JRPG series that offers quite what Kiseki does.
    It is inconsistent, has huge ups and downs even with games... But if you have the right kind of autism, it is pretty much some of the best shit out there.

    Needless to say I love it despite its flaws. I say give it a chance, but know its not for everybody.

        The setting is nice, but the story feels like filler to setup Crossbell and the larger Erebonian conflict. Doesn't help that the game has an open ending where nothing gets resolved and the villains simply run away.
        On top of that, the villains are kinda boring and don't really have good reasons for what they do.

    All the arcs are good and have postives and negatives. Don't let miserbale pieces of shit on Ganker influence your opinion. The average poster here will never admit it, in fact it is likely they weren't even here when it happened, but Ganker loved the first two CS games when they were released because the franchise wasn't popular enough to attract jaded shitposters.
    Some people prefer Sky, some people prefer Crosbell, and yes, some people prefer Cold Steel.
    Despite what people may claim, almost nobody on this website has actually played Kuro, take anything you hear with a grain of salt - though the shitposters will come out in droves to claim that they did.

      Unreal hack slop activists like this chud who loves Slopma and Rehashbirth make this comment.

      Kiseki has been the soul of JRPGs and keeps it lit.

        This schizophrenic comment is incoherent, much like the rest of the /vg/ sloppers.

    I've enjoyed every game ive played so far and I've played 6 games of them. The only real complaint I've had so far is the villains aren't great.

    Yeah that's a hard no from me dawg. There's like 15 fricking games and they're all extremely long. I literally LITERALLY don't have time to waste on something that's probably 6/10 across the board.

      Why not just play a hentai game? People tell you to play the PSP games because those are the good ones.

    First two games (sky first class/second class) are good, rest of the series ranges from shit to ok. Not worth the investment, just play the games that inspired it (Suikoden 1/2 and Xenogears)

    Comfy adventure? Grandia is better
    Mechs? Xenogears is better
    Politics? Suikoden is better
    Dating Sim? Persona is better

    Trails is mid at best

      Correction, Ys 1-6 and Origin are the only good Falcom franchise. The party Ys games are an embarrassment and a fundamental betrayal of the series' identity

      Literally nothing that happens in the games is "kino." It's lowest common denominator slop. You see booba, you like booba. Absolutely terrible franchise compared to literally anything else in the genre. Other than Nepshit.

    The first breasts entry is the only one I played, and I wasn't too impressed with it. The massive amount of time it spends fleshing out the setting would be great if anything about the setting was remotely unique or interesting. Instead, you have characters spending ages explaining how the adventurers guild is the exact same as every other stupid adventurer's guild that ever appears in Japanese media and such. All the hints of political intrigue also fail to go anywhere, and instead you get silly villains with mind-control powers as the driving force behind the plot.

    Series is kino. I would say that in terms of world building, it's among the best games at it.

    Play for 90 minutes. If you like it, keep playing and enjoy a great story and better than average turn-based gameplay. If you don't like it by 90 minutes, you never will so just refund it.
    Anyone saying the game is "slow burn and peaks X hours in" is correct, but games are supposed to be fun for the entire experience.

    Fine up through Zero.
    Azure introduced many of the elements that people complain the most about in CS but at least that was 1 game. CS is the most poorly paced set of games I've ever played.

    These threads always get raided by the transcord activists because its one of the few franchises left that hasn't bent the knee yet to ESG.
