      I got that game with my PS1, it was just Beyond the Beyond and Battle Arena Toshinden for the like first whole year I owned my PS1. Really set my expectations low but its all I do. While most people will probably remember Toshinden as the better game but without any friends/siblings to play with a fighting game didn't hold my attention very long so I spent most of my time playing and replaying Beyond the Beyond instead.

      Later when I finally got some more games for my PS1 every single fricking one felt like a goddamn masterpiece by comparison. Final Fantasy, Suikoden, Breath of Fire, Lunar, Grandia, Wild Arms, Xenogears, every single one felt like I was playing the best games ever made and I attribute that to spending so long with nothing else to play besides Beyond the Beyond.

      A lot of people develop stockholm syndrome for that game they were forced to play during their childhood, but that was not the case here, going back to it now only reminds me of how awful it was and how long I was stuck with it. What a fricking dreadful game.

          He's overselling it. Its no where near that bad. Its just one of (if not the) first RPG on the PS1, and as such is just a gloried SNES game. The game itself is a basic b***h dragon quest clone with an obnoxiously high encounter rate, the combat doesn't do anything particularly interesting. Other than that its fine. If you play it on an emulator with fast forward like most people do these days its not even hard to get through. It has some charm if you're looking for something innocent, hopeful, and colorful but don't expect the worst game ever or a hidden gem.

          I remember someone had some cheat codes to cut the encounter rate in half while doubling the exp that probably helps a lot in making it palatable. The high encounter rate is the most glaring issue with the game.

    As much as I love portable Tactics games, the jank in this one was just too much to handle. The UI is fricking horrible to interact with, to the point that it's borderline painful to play even the intended way (although I tried to play it on the 3DS instead of the DS).

Wished there's a way to make the on-foot party members just as strong as the tanks.

      Isn't the vehicle modding in Metal Max 3 irreversible as well? Hard to optimize vehicle builds there, except would def want to nab a Vulcan Box and Sunbeam Gun to make the wastleland progression pretty smooth.

    Wild Arms 5.
    And it sucks cause I liked all the other Wild Arms - even 4 with how weird and janky it can be is at least somewhat interesting.
    5 is just sad to play. There’s no charm anymore, the combat is terrible and all characters are essentially interchangeable as part of that, and outside of combat all the characters are horrible. I hate all of them. They stripped out all of the good dungeon puzzles too, and what you’re left with is brainless.

    It’s no surprise the series ended after this

    1 was honestly pretty good. played it start to finish no major breaks. but as i got deeper and deeper into 2 i spent less and less time on it because every other encounter was just some frick shit that kills you instantly unless you have DM mastermind prep from having died 3 times already.

    cant even remember any major story beats leading up to where i stopped but I just finished some frickshit hellscape of biological bridges with pits on them that drop you into mob rooms. Ended up killing the beholder fairly fricking easily compared to the journey to it and i just decided that i cant be bothered being jumped by npcs offering me 4 quests every 2 steps im in the city. played for like 60hrs already and am no closer to actually making headway into finding Imoen because the side content is almost literally endless.

      kek you fricked yourself. you're supposed to do the side shit on chapter 6 after you've been through 80% of the main game. side quest is side quest for a reason, it literally doesn't matter if you finish it.

      you're playing a game that takes 300+ hours to complete 100%. 60 hours is barely scratching the surface. I'm 24 hours in and already 60-70% done the game

        frick me i guess, wanted to see where it lead the first 4 times someone came up to me i after i finished the Troll Castle and got back to Amn. Thought i figured out what the game was trying to do when i left literal pages of quests til after i finished what i was doing then it just literally didnt end, every new area of the city or major landmark i entered had 5 more quests in it waiting for me after i turned one in.

        I didnt drop it because its a "bad" game, its still BG its just paced like horseshit and feels like its entire chapters worth of subquests smashed into one- EVERY chapter

    Breath of Fire 4.

    The animation is great, the music is fantastic... but my god the story blows. The themes and concepts are fine but god damn does the pacing suck. Fou-lu would be fine but he keeps getting his ass kicked and having to stop and recover. Just let me play the fricking side story already, christ.

    Ryu's is... just the worst.
    You make a lot of progress getting into the Empire's land and through the Aqueduct... all to be sent all the way back to Ludia... way, way, way back... you lose so much progress...

    ... and then a whole lot of nothing of much importance happens for the longest time. The game even wastes your time. Spend all that time forging a new King's Sword just for it to be a waste of time and have to break Cray out by force anyway. And then just when things start to pick up a little bit, Cray reveals himself to be a gigantic douche. Ryu is selflessly trying to help Cray and Nina find Elena. Ryu selflessly helped spring Cray. Once Cray finds out Ryu is the legendary Yorae Dragon and that the Empire is looking for him? He gets the brilliant idea to just hand Ryu over in an attempt to barter for Elena's return.

    Nearly threw my controller at the god damned screen because of that nonsense.

    The final fricking straw was when you get stuck on an island and Nina, who has shown not one single shred of romantic interest toward anything? She just blurts out she has a crush on Cray. WTF.

    The writing is just painful. Agonizing.

      Completely understandable to the point where I'm actually shocked at how much praise it gets. I actually stuck with it and it's really probably one of the lower ends of the Tales of series, even the story isn't that interesting.

        It's not the worst game, and it was pretty good for it's time, but the real appeal of it was that the Gamecube has no RPGs and Symphonia was one of the few RPGs for that console. Kind of elevated it. Like kind of a lot.

            You're completely correct, I fat fingered an "s" instead of a "d" spelling "has" instead of "had." The Gamecube did have JRPGs. It's just that it existed right along side the PS2 and the PS2 had backward compatibility to boot so you had a 2 entire libraries of JRPGs and thus, at least in my circle of nerdom, the Playstation was the console of JRPGs and the Gamecube was that one console with Melee, Luigi's Mansion, and a surprisingly dark game by the name of Eternal Darkness.

            At least that's my defense.

              FFCC was conceptually good. But to get the full experience, you needed to play multiplayer. Preferably 3 or 4 player, cause 2 player is legitimately worse than just playing solo.

                The remaster for this game could have been so good. Hell, if they went really in on it, local co-op could have had you download an app on your phone for the GBA screen info. Online would just be seperate screens.

                Well, after the price cut, the GameCube was only $100, and I think the GBA was like $80 after the price cut. And I think the GC-GBA cords were like $30 each (I forget if FFCC included one with the game, but I know Four Swords Adventures included one). So, to play FFCC multiplayer, you had to spend at minimum $370 (a GameCube, two GBAs, two cables, and a $50 copy of the game).

                The remaster for this game could have been so good. Hell, if they went really in on it, local co-op could have had you download an app on your phone for the GBA screen info. Online would just be seperate screens.

                get this, the remaster is region locked anyway so you still need to have 3 REAL friends from your OWN region exclusively or otherwise rely on completely random people to join you sporadically and then get kicked out after the quest because get this- you cant form permanent parties of any kind, everyone gets kicked out after every mission and progress is only saved for the host

                I had all of this, but my IRL friends were FFXI addicts and only wanted to play that. I think I wrangled them together for a single session of FFCC and then they just went back to grinding crawlies in boyahda tree. So you also have to include 'that weren't already addicted to the Final Fantasy MMO' which limited the pool even further.

        I liked the premise in Persona 3 of an extra hour no one else knows about, but I thought the game sucked and I never played another one. Not being able to control your other party members was utterly moronic.

    Painful dialogue. No gameplay. Not "deep" at all.
    I'm happy a certain fit girl helped me out so I didn't have to pay for this garbage.

    I think I'm just super autistic with SRPGs in general. Generic units are usually a turn off. And now I've found out not knowing unit turn order is another thing that bugs me.
    A shame, because the game was the definition of sovl

      It is. They dropped the ball with that one; it was visually pretty good looking but thats about its only strongpoint. It didn't even have very good music outside of the one track I can remember. FF12 is one of my favorites, but it had bad voice acting/dialogue just like 10 did; FFs should stick to text-only.

    I seriously don't get how so many people seem to love this game. Tried to get into it so many time but just lose interest past the starting area.
    Uninspired setting, moronic armor system, le quirky reddit dialogue, schizophrenic quest design and exp rewards that requires you to either have be playing with a walkthrough or have prior knowledge to get the most interesting rewards. There's enough interesting skills that the combat *could* be good, but it rarely is because each fight is either just enemy spam or some annoying area-specific gimmick.

    The game also plays with the assumption that the player for some reason gives a shit about all the lore and is invested in all the characters which is a bit too much to ask for such a bland and generic setting. Even most other "deep lore" RPGs at least let the player ignore most of it and just focus on their adventure. Morrowind, with all it's books and dialogue (which actually do a much better job than DOS2 at getting the player interested in the lore) at least respects any player's potential disinterest enough to boil down the main quest to basic goals like "get all 3 great houses to like you" and "kill this dude living in a volcano", meanwhile in DOS2 I struggle to give a shit about the main quest but the game also doesn't seem to give you clear quest objectives that are inseparable from its shitty lore and characters after getting out of Fort Joy.
    I could tell BG3 was going to be shit when I learned it was being made by the same studio.

      You might be better off avoiding games with a focus on story. Morrowind is special in simply providing a world for you to experience as you please.

    I don't usually do that... But it takes me like 6 months to finish a single game. Took me 3 months to finish New Vegas and I'm playing Persona 4 G right now on my Vita, which will take me another 6 months or so.

    The only RPG I ever dropped was Omega Quintet because it had bullshit requirements for the true ending. I missed a quest called "Vitamin pills" which was missable and locked you out of the true ending.

        the game is fairly unremarkable and i say this as its one of my favourites, its the elevation of the stakes that makes it "good" in that you genuinely go from being an errand boy slapping goblins in order to be kept busy by red tape to eventually learning the King aint shit, the world aint shit, nobody is shit frick you, frick the dragon frick Mercedes i am a GOD

        its just a normal western inspired knight fantasy game, just like Dark Souls, the fanbases of "good" games just have a habit of aggrandizing them into masterpieces that they functionally arent. Its more of a Gurenn Lagann game than an EVA pseudodeep game if that makes any sense whatsoever

          I thought for a long time it was going to be a generic clone of a game, but it actually had brilliant bits. I have problems with the game, but I can see how it drew people in in very specific ways. If it hits, it hits hard kind of deal.

          It's more melancholic than Gurren Lagann for sure. Being "god" kinda sucks and the good ending is functional suicide or ego death or whatever. That's not really Gurren Lagann.
          That's really where the 2 games share the most, in the melancholia of the ending. Shame that the leadup to both is just so poorly executed that it puts a lot of people off. I've never suffered so much through the story of a game only to come out saying "that was pretty good, actually" quite like I did with DD1/2.

            in a way youre right but in the far flung future of the world that Simon saved hes an old man that nobody recognises and so his legend is functionally dead. You get to the very top of the universe in Dragon's Dogma by saying "i dont give a FRICK" and it ends in everyone but you being okay

            it was as loose a comparison i could make in terms of comparing it to something like Dark Souls being as misery as EVA in that "world ends, you didnt do shit gg". and on that note i also dropped Shadow of The Erdtree before even playing it because i heard that Fromsoft didnt learn a single thing and the difficulty and general design is still that of a prank rather than a challenging or enjoyable experience.

    I find it boring. The writing is so dry, and the characters hardly interact with one another. I also wanna strangle the guy at Square Enix that keeps forcing stagger/guard break mechanics into JRPGs because it makes fights much more of a slog.

      I'm 40 hours into the sequel and finding it hard to go on, there is a lot to like there but having to go through different stories for 8 different characters, only half of which I even remotely care about, is getting to be a drag. And the guard break thing...it was fun at first but by this point the novelty has worn off and it's just more tedium.

    It's unbelievable how much worse it is than Covenant. Party members are boring, and the plot is extremely basic. In combat, every skill is ridiculously over-animated, and battles take forever.
    I forced myself to push through it, but when I realized that the first boss of the final dungeon basically required doing all sidequests, I dropped it.

      SH1 and Koudelka mostly fall within horror with some wacky elements, SH2 goes more in on the wacky but still hits a decent blend of that and more serious beats, but SH3 just goes full in on the wacky humor and it just doesn't work anymore. It's unfortunate.
      Hope Penny Blood is more of a return to form.

    I have no idea why people find this piece of shit enjoyable. It barely qualifies as a game. It's tedious as well. I suspect people who "like" this game only say so because they've watched some youtuber play the game, or played with a wiki opened.

    I dropped FF3 at the cave where you fight nothing but enemies that multiply when you attack them with anything that aren't katanas/magic. The whole place felt like such a slog and then i woke up and realized that the excessively long final dungeon was not long afterwards and quit.

        I played the nes version with a cheat code to make class changing free. For how much they expect you to class change, it's downright insulting to have it cost anything. And I tried the DS version beforehand and they had a stupid as frick "adjustment period" after class changing. Why the frick would they even do that?

          tbf the adjustment period doesn't seem to affect much I don't remember it being an issue though I only class changed when a certain class was telegraphed
