All you fags who play Pokemon for the single player would probably be better off looking into other, similar RPGs focused on being a single player experience.
Shin Megami Tensei V is the best place to start. 60 hour main game, slaps. Works for everyone looking for something to play between now and November.

      Honestly, V is pretty mid story wise compared to IV. Exploration and QoL is a massive step up though. I can't even play III anymore.

      The main appeal of Pokemon are the monster designs, and nothing from SMT even compares to something like Gardevoir or Lucario.

      SMTs monster design has always slapped, arguably as hard as pokemon, it just doesn't go for the accessible market, nor play the quantity game.

        I dropped V at the demon castle due to the environments just feeling so bland compared to IV, and I didn’t fully understand the Magatsuhi system to make boss fights easier. Yes there’s a fairy forest and I believe the last few areas look nice but going from yellow desert to red desert to white desert, each with their own flavor of ruined buildings felt boring. I do agree that the actual exploration improved a lot, most of the maps in IV were relatively straightforward.

          Same. It's all deserts and differently colored square dungeons, no variety at all.
          The game also ran like shit so I'm waiting for the inevitable PC port. And also at least early on Normal mode was too easy and Hard was too hard, I fucking hate it when a JRPG is like this. SMT3 felt pretty challenging in Normal with no need to bump it up so it was disappointing.

        Don't listen to that anon, there are plenty of cool designs that aren't humans. A lot of the best ones are deities with human forms but because of the way the fusion mechanics work you can make a "weaker" demon that is just as powerful as the best ones, the only thing you'll miss out on are unique skills.

    I play pokemon for the single-player, but I only play shoot 'em ups and puzzle games for the most part. Most JRPGs are too long for me, I get burned out of them easily. If I want to experience a story I'd rather skip the gameplay and read a visual novel or book. Grandia I and II are great though, my favorites.

    Pokemon is a casual RPG, and that works well enough for me.

    >Blog Incoming:
    I was honestly done with Pokemon but my son was born Dec 2020 and when he got older he was a bitch to put to sleep. he wanted me to hold him while he cried and fought his sleep so in March 2021 I bought a switch as an excuse to play it while walking around holding him to put him to sleep.

    Even before he was born it was hell to complete games and now that I'm on my second kid it feels like the only thing that I CAN play are Pokemon games because they require so little mental processing and my brain doesn't need to pay attention to the stories. I want to finish Yakuza Like A Dragon so badly but it's stationary on my PC and I want to see what's going on in it. Been finishing the DLCs for SwSh and doing the post gfame stuff for PLA and it's so easy to put down and pickup in a way that Elden RIng and Yakuza, two games I want to play more of, aren't.

    most monster tamers that arn't just pokemon clones have a fusion system, which is pretty fun to play around with; SMT , Digimon , Yo-Kai Watch ,ect.
    the appeal of SMT is that you get to have tons of demons/persona's based on mythology & folklore of many diff cultures.

    There are definitely better games to play than Pokemon, though in my experience nothing really scratches the same itch. SMTV is a great JRPG but people who put it in the same category as Pokemon just because it also involves you collecting a team of monsters are missing the mark. The basic concept is similar but the mechanics are completely different, they're really not remotely similar games. Also, despite Pokemon having some truly bad writing, in my experience SMT's comes across even worse since it deals with such lofty concepts and still falls flat. V was a lot of fun but the story was a complete letdown, way more disappoining than any Pokemon narrative I've experienced. It's odd that SMT is such a better series in general but the writing is as bad or maybe even worse than Pokemon's. Whenever anyone says we should get a more edgy, mature kind of Pokemon story I point them toward SMT to demonstrate how easy it is to fuck that up.

    • 2 months ago

      What do you think SMT does wrong with the writing? The way I view SMT’s story is humans getting thrusted into extreme situations, and as a result having to take extreme measures in order to survive or change the world into what they see as ideal.

        NTA but the problem with SMT's major problem is that ultimately pretty much every game just boils down to "neutral/compromise good" and does so by presenting law and chaos in such a horrifically awful light that no reasonable person would ever pick them/making neutral endings be the 'best' endings. Most of the settings in the series also don't really adhere to any kind of structure and tend to have weird schizo fantasy worldbuilding where things just happen because they do and usually for the purposes of driving the law/chaos theme home rather than making any real sense (the Yamato Reactor sequence in 4 for instance).

        That being said hard disagree its writing is anywhere comparable to Pokemon. At the very least SMT sticks to coherent themes and ideas, every Pokemon plot is literally just "shove in random generic JRPG plot even if it clashes with the setting really badly and has no reasonable basis", Gens 4 and 6 being most guilty of this.

          Devil Survivor doesn't have this problem. Law and Chaos are both great in Devil Survivor. In fact Neutral kind of sucks ass compared to them.
          Law: Become the Messiah and help establish God's rule over the Earth. God isn't really a dick in Devil Suvivor and you can convince sinners to repent instead of letting angels kill them so it's a pretty chill deal.
          Chaos: Become Overlord and lead a demon army against God. You can either kill those who oppose you, making people fear you but eventually bowing to you, or be a king Overlord, making the people stand behind you against God. Either way, you intend on keeping humanity safe and never sick demons on humans, way better than Strange Joruney's Chaos ending.
          Neutral 1: Run away from the problem, angels are pissed off, demons run free, bad ending.
          Neutral 2: Give control over demons to the government. lol, lmao
          Neutral 3: Send demons away, things go back to normal. Boring.

            Devil Survivor I think has the opposite problem in that Law and Chaos are portrayed way too positively over Neutral. It also I think has the bigger problem in that the alignments and the lofty concepts being thrown around aren't explored, they're just given better reps this time around. There's functionally barely a difference between creating God's kingdom on Earth and being omnipotent good and taking over God's throne so you can being omnipotent good, it just depends on what side you take on Naoya's incel ranting.

            Ideally having a game explore in-depth the failings and successes of each alignment and how it relates to faith/belief would be the strongest way to approach what the series wants to portray. It's just easier to have the Neutral guy = good and then you go punch god, who's just unabashedly and overtly evil for no real reason, in the face.

            Because objectively even in that scenario, neutral 3 would be the best decision to make in our world. The makers of SMT's intention is not to radicalize people.

    I got into SMT through Devil Survivor and I really recommend it. Play the Overclocked version. The lockdown scenario with society falling apart is a lot more interesting, the choices you make are pretty important, and the game has great Law and Chaos endings, some of the best in the series. Even if its a spinoff the gameplay is still great.

    The first two acts are great and then decent.
    But the third act really shat the bed. The last area is probably the worst design in the franchise.
    They should start with a Megami Ibunroku Persona first, since that's babymode SMT.
    Then go to either 3 or 4A.
    5 was better than 4, but it had a very bad third act.

    JRPGs are definitely not for me, pokemon is just too easy. Sitting down and booting up the game to get good at it is a completely different kind of time investment than pulling up Ganker while taking a shit. Often times I ghost the game for so long that when I come back to it I forget my team strategy, what the items do, and even the plot itself. Still, I saw Marsh's video on SMT1 and that game was so crazy I wanted to play an SMT game. Accidentally ended up downloading a ROM of Apocalypse instead of the original IV. Fun for a while, but gets pretty boring afterwards. My only jrpg achievement is beating the main story of P4 a long time ago so this time I got Persona 2 on my phone. Been a better experience than Apocalypse so far. I have a small vacation coming in a few weeks so during that time I wanna finish P2 and maybe play Nocturne since the main guy looks so edgy. Still I'll probably never play games like Chrono Trigger, FF, Souls etc.

    Xenoblade chronicles and maybe spectrobes Beyonce the portals are maybe other good ones
    but I probably recommend some 3d platformers above everything if you just want to have fun (Ratchet, Jak, Spyro, Crash, the 3d marios)
    Metal gear Solid is algo a good franchise to get invested in

      I feel that.
      I recommend the fossil fighters series. First two are great but the third is sorely lacking. But if you like cars then it might be good for you.

      Also Monsterhunter stories2, it's on pc and switch. The combat is much more intense than pokemon but it still kinda has that autistic collectathon feel. I'd love a pokemon game that tries that combat style.

      I'm a massive fan of monster catching games but so many of them are either pokemon clones, or incredibly under developed. Trying to fix what doesn't need fixing y'know?
      They either stick to close to the pokemon formula, or try to hard to make a competative pokemon and miss the point entirely. Very few are willing to spread there wings and try to stand on there own.

          I am hoping we will get SOMETHING!
          Even if it's just a port to the switch i'd be quite happy. I think that Fossil fighters really deserves another chance.
          I just hope it's not a port of frontier.

          hmm, never tried fossil fighters, but maybe I'll give it a chance
          And YES definetely Monster Hunter is something that if you liked legends arceus you are going to enjoy
          last time I played tri ultimate, but I'm not sure

          First 2, skip the third.
          Also Monsterhunter stories, is a monster catching game. Not traditional MH. You raid monster nests steal there eggs and turn them into your pets. You ride around on them and fight monsters side by side in a rock paper scissors style combat system.
          While the Pet has it's own AI you can influence it to do attacks you want, and monsters normally come in 3 styles of Attack, speed, or technical.
          Really fun. The only downside about the game is it works on a quality system. So no matter how much you love your starter. You will eventually have to swap them out because a quality 3 monster is just trash compared to a quality 4. A thing i hope they address in the future games.

        Think I remember reading about that once sometime last year on Twitter. I highly doubt it'll happen, but we'll see.
        And if they keep Frontier out of this supposed collection, I'll be very happy.

          ocasionally i still search for news on the game but nothing yet.

          I respect the smt games but i only like a few of the monsters, which are shit tier ones.

          Are there any good modern monster collecting games?

    For the idiots that are too stupid notice. Fossils Fighters is owned and somewhat developed by Nintendo. And it was Nintendo decision to fuck up Frontier

    Given that fact that Nintendo is an anal company that like drop franchises (Advance Wars, F-Zero) for other in the same genre (FE, Mario kart).
    Why would they keep Fossils Fighters when Pokemon make them bank in the same genre?

      Probably not nintendo.
      Nintendo's whole gimick, is doing the exact same thing, over and over and over again as long as it sells.
      Frontier was probably the people behind it wanting to do something else and just doing a shit job at it.

      The game wouldn't have even been that bad if it wasnt for the piss poor AI and that stupid pikachu trex.

        I dunno, Nintendo is definitely conservative with how it treats its properties but just compare what Pokemon did when jumping to the Switch with where Zelda and Mario went. Imagine FE still doing what it did on the GBA

    I got bored of pokemon after sword and shield and I tried dragon quest XI out of curiosity.

The old games have their charm, but the pokemon mainline series as a whole is shit, the only saving grace of it are the pokemon themselves, but with the dexcut bullshit the new games kind of fall apart.

    It's impossible to talk about monster designs with pokemon fans because they think every series follows the same rules(that pokemon set up) and any deviation from it is seen as a failure to live up to said unagreed upon standards.
    They may analyze Sugimori's style and understand a the basic organic and biological framework Pokemon is going for, but they don't leave that at the door when they look at Kenji Watanabe's or Kazuma Kaneko's styles and why they appeal to the core fanbase, or the thought process that goes behind its monsters, and don't have any context for any "good" or "bad" design in those games. It's why you'll always have people who'll never let the "digital" part of Digital Monsters get into their head, or a lot of the design choices that not just go into SMT, but different intentions in different games, differences between artists, or evolution of a single artist.
    I mainly wrote this post just for myself

      For example, you can't shit talk Pokemon with other's standards. Frosslass is a good design because it turns a folklore trope into something that you can imagine as part of the flora and fauna, SMT has several different goals depending on the demon but here's one example where it's more concerned with being literal with its depiction of myth. Japanese myth isn't really Dragon Quest's forte,Yokai Watch's look originally stems from Doraemon so its way more cute, and ygo just is what it is nowadays
