        Final Fantasy was never good. Neither was Kingdom Hearts. Dragon Quest and other smaller titles (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Octopath 1 & 2, and Bravely Default) are the only things worth purchasing from Squeenix.

                The only spotlight DQ ever gets is from morons here using them for culture war bait or saying they're going woke.
                Nobody bought Dragon Quest Builders 1 or 2, despite 2 releasing on PC.
                Nobody bought Dragon Quest Heroes 1 or 2 despite the massive shill campaign for it and both being on PC.
                It took until what, two years ago, for Dragon Quest X to get a translation. It launched on the Wii, that's how old it is.
                Nobody bought any of the Dragon Quest remakes on the DS or 3DS.
                Nobody watched Dragon Quest Dai no Daibouken despite it being a major Toei production that ran for two years with all of their top animators, important staff, involved for a full adaptation.
                Nobody bought the recent Viz Dai no Daibouken manga releases, leading to that getting cut short at 5 volumes.
                Nobody bought Dragon Quest Monsters 3 or Dragon Quest Treasures.
                At best, Hero in Smash will get you a "Who's he?" followed by "I can't believe they put in another anime swordfighter"- the alternative is an absolute poser that goes "Yeah, he's Dragon Quest guy!" and doesn't know what the alt costumes mean.

                And Dragon Quest XI, the big western success from 2017, the supposed 'Year of Japan' back in the day, sold 1 million copies in the West. Really impressive, a shame that is 4 times less than Japan. Its peak player count is also unimpressive with only 11K (and only 4K for XI S, the heavily advertised rerelease).

                The idea that XI or DQ3 2D-HD will magically make this franchise a success is moronic. Here's everytime DQ was successful
                >Dragon Warrior (given away in Nintendo Power, doesn't count)
                >Dragon Quest VII (had to be bundled with a demo for FFXII)
                >Dragon Quest IX (likely due to it being one of the few DS games with 4 player co-op rather than versus multiplayer or some other gimped mode)
                >Dragon Quest XI (mostly right time, but it still failed to hit mainstream in the same year where Yakuza became mainstream)

                The gameplay is perfectly solid. Just like Pokemon, it doesn't have to change dramatically because it just works that well. DQ games have never had good overarching stories, but neither have Final Fantasy games. The good storytelling comes from the individual story segments. The main plot is just a vehicle to get you from good side story to good side story.

            Frick off revisionist homosexuals, FFX was beloved at launch. It also stays true to were FF was going at that time.

            Yes it was more linear, but that was a COPE from the development perspective as it's very well known that FFX was intended to have open environments. Blame the PS2 for it's shitty infrastructure, that took square till FFXII (which was also good btw) to understand. FFX at least opens up in the last third of the game and you can revisit as many of the areas as you'd like to get stuff done as there's a frickton of side content.

            Also, IX being the last good game? Not that slow as shit game. IX was an enormous step backwards from VII and Viii, and X at least kept that momentum going.

            Also, FF has always been loved by women lmao. DQ, FF and FE always had large fujoshi fanbase.

                FFX is just as linear as the other games. If you want to progress, you have to go from specified location to location. The environments might not be as large, and parts of the game cut off access to a prior location - but that's also the case with old FF as well.

                X doesn't need an airship. Nearly every location links to the next, where only a few can only be accessed by airship. You can run to basically every location in the game by foot, minus places lost through plot. They just wanted the game to feel more realistic.

                So bunk complaints.

    >"In Final Fantasy VII, we were able to depict these types of issues, like the cycle of life, through the concept of Lifestream," Final Fantasy VII director Yoshinori Kitase says. "If we were to depict it exactly as we experience it in the real world, it would not be very interesting. With Nojima-san's ideas, we were able to have this centered on Lifestream and the planet within the worldview of Final Fantasy VII. In this way, I believe the game and its themes remain relevant and withstand the test of time."

    >Though he feels the themes of Final Fantasy VII are still important today, he does have some regrets regarding the team's approach to those issues in 1997. "Considering the way to depict social problems, social issues, and cultural depictions, in some ways, I am a bit embarrassed by the original title," Kitase says. "In its expression, in some ways, it was very young and naive in itself. That is a learning for us, but at the same time, I do believe that perhaps that is one of the reasons why it was so widely accepted. It's not perfect, and it's kind of uneven and jagged in its young and naive nature of its depiction. Of course, after [more than] 25 years, there is a lot of personal learning, changes, and growth. But looking back on it, some parts of it, I am a bit embarrassed."

                It is, because any opposition to the elite is named terrorism. That's what it means. If you are opposing the current regime in any way, you are labelled a terrorist. Try paying attention to the world around you sometime.

                Terrorism is violence meant to cause terror in order to make the masses too afraid to oppose you.

                You know; like ANTIFA and BLM did in the "summer of mostly-peaceful protests" in 2020.

                The word you leftists are trying to define as terrorism is actually "dissidence," and unlike leftism is actually peaceful

                >The word you leftists are trying to define as terrorism

                Get some reading comprehension, dipshit. Leftoids are the regime, so opposition to their regime is labelled terrorism. This is the case under any circumstances. Anyone who opposes any regime is named a terrorist.
                Let's set a hypothetical here. America is taken over by an authoritarian demon king who forces everyone to live in pods and eat bugs. A violent opposition forms to oppose him. You think this wouldn't be called terrorism? You think that because he's supposed to be the bad guy he'll acknowledge the situation as such and won't call your resistance a terrorist cell?

                Words are created to define ideas. The word terrorism was created to describe violent activists who wanted to strike fear into the general public for opposing them.

                This is what you'd like to think it means because it's what the regime told you it means. They told you that they're calling certain groups terrorists because those terrorists are actually against you and not them and they're just looking out for you. This has never been the truth in practice.

                >opposing totalitarian authority is terrorism.
                No it's not. It's dissidence, especially since republicans are NOT out being violent like leftists are to where you leftists have to make shit up, like two MAGA-hat-wearing whtie boys in Chicago at 2 AM.

                Yes, I'm aware. I'm actually baffled that you somehow still think I'm a leftoid. My point here is that no matter how peaceful or targeted your resistance may be, if you are a threat to the regime you are called a terrorist. That's how the word is used.

                No, it's what the word means. It wasn't invented by the elites. It comes from the French Revolution and the period known as "The Terror" where leftists would go around killing regular people for not fully agreeing with them.

                >They told you that they're calling certain groups terrorists because those terrorists are actually against you and not them and they're just looking out for you. This has never been the truth in practice.
                This is just revisionist nonsense. Terrorism has never meant "opposed to the regime".

In reality, right now in the current year, you are a terrorist if you cheered on the Jan. 6 protest. Was there any violence there? From the regime, yeah. Not from the "terrorists". Sit down and use your head, take this situation as an example and apply it to what you hear about when you go to middle school history class tomorrow.

              It's not that hard. You can tell political stories without being a fricking preacher, media used to do it all the time. Now, if a character like Cid in FF7 exists, a solid third of his screentime has to be "BEATING WOMEN IS WRONG BTW, DID YOU KNOW THAT?". As if the audience is too stupid to realize this on their own. As if the story itself doesn't emphasize that Cid's abuse of his wife is wrong, and that he's doing it to hide from his insecurities. If there's a black character in media, he HAS to talk about how oppressed and downtrodden he is. He's not allowed to just be black, he must BE Black, with all the caveats that entails. Media has been used as a propaganda arm to preach to consumers for years now, and people are just fricking exhausted by it. You can have political media all you want, but the preaching has to stop - for one, everyone who's doing it is a complete shitheel at writing.

                The seeds for the energy crisis were sown by poor energy policy that forced a country with more oil than Syria to rely on international imports of electricity. All of Europe made the mistake of relying on Russia and America for energy when there's enough nuclear and fossil fuels on the continent for self sufficiency. Strangling out companies with high taxes in a time of need is moronic.

                And no, nationalised industries aren't strong. The NHS is the single biggest expenditure in the country and it's still somehow underfunded. 15% of the country is on an NHS waiting list. Just cut the damn thing loose and let it crumple under its own DEI initiatives so something better can take its place. Same with the BBC.

                I'm confused as to the value of these. The point of sex with a woman over jerking off is the interactivity, yes? The thrill of passion between both participants.
                One of the most universally complained-about aspects of sex from men is if women "just lay there" and you're paying tens of thousands of dollars (yes, these are usually very expensive) to get that experience?

                I'd argue porn is more "interactive" than this.

                Even mass produced, getting the weight and the complexity of the machinery down to a mass-production level would take years upon years if you want anything more than basic movement. Not to mention there'd be a ton of passive costs like cleaning, maintenance, battery/power and the network connection needed to maintain the voice AI. Considering most women not only pay for themselves (equality and all that) and make their own money through work it won't be long until it starts eating into you wallet I'd think.

                Of course the doll can't divorce you but you're not obligated to marry a woman either.

                A good sex toy costs 1% of what these dolls do currently, and it'll probably be closer to 0.01% by the time all the mechanical shit is developed, installed and functional.

                Did you ever have sex with a woman? It's not really about how good your dick feels since your hand will always be better at that but it's rather about the feeling of domination. If you can have a doll that can get warm, wet, make sex eyes at you and spew bullshit AI powered lines at you like "Frick me harder senpai, I love your dick so much, cum in me, make me pregnant, I want your babies" I absolutely guarantee you that real women would be over right away and all of them as a collective would scramble back to 18th century values in an attempt to make men think they have some worth.

                Adoption rate and availability is not the same.
                Availability is people's ability to actually get their hands on the thing, while the adoption rate is how many actually bought one.
                They're saying not enough people bought a PS5, in turn hurting the game sales.

              The first part sold 7 million copies in spite of it being a short game that's 5% of the original game with a whole lot of story padding. This game makes real progress, comes on two discs, and takes you from leaving Midgar all the way through at least Rocket Town and maybe Wutai. Because of that I think it'll do even better than 7 million, especially since there isn't a lot of competition beyond the Tomb Raider remaster.

    I'm pretty sure this type of talk comes up when it's about not only alternate political takes, but an attempt at adding more intrigue or depth to what is in the end, superfluous elements.

    The original cross dressing scene, back in the day, is a means to an end, where it doesn't linger and just moves on with it. Compared to Remakes cross dressing scene, due to modern trends, it's a "glorious scene" that embellishes less than straight laced attitudes such as cross dressing or sex work and attempts to humanize them.

    But then you have the issues, where it helps realize the world, at the cost of the story being a secondary fiddle to alternate story telling.

    What's going to happen to Cosmo Canyon? Is it going to be the little pitstop it was in OG, or will it become this haven in the wastes, where culturally accurate people in tribal outfits live and dance and it's all so much happier and livelier than the city (except for that place where everyone unwanted by society stands).

    It's really the only way both sides are shown nowadays, with upper class business oriented citizens being knowingly in the wrong but "they need ze money" or cartoonishly evil, and the lower class being this colourful cast who can do no wrong because they are "ze downtroden".

    Even learning Japanese isn't enough now. Japan used to not give a shit about wokeness and politics but they're slowly crumbing and giving in to western values. Atlus also cut scenes from the japanese and western versions of Persona 5 Royal and Catherine Full Body after pressure from woke western activists. The western market is too big for Japanese companies to ignore so they have to comply now.
