      It was already good. Everyone these days expects games to be a 10 or 1. There's nothing wrong with a perfectly enjoyable 6/10 or whatever. YIIK was a great time and genuinely hilarious, I'll never forget it.

      It'll never happen. It's just a thoroughly bad game. Dungeon designs are garbage, combat is garbage, pacing is garbage, the enemy variety is small as frick so you run into the same exact monsters you'd otherwise find in random encounters in dungeons as well, and of course the writing is garbage and full of god awful purple prose.
      The YIIK dev would be better off just investing his time in a new game rather than wasting his time trying to fix a dumpster fire of a game that's just beyond salvage

    All things considered, good on the dev for sticking with it rather than just dropping it and giving up. YIIK was a bit of a mess, and I didn't really like its story, but I guess it's possible he could fix some of its bigger issues if there are genuinely plans to revamp the gameplay and story.

      It's unfixable because the biggest flaw is the shitty characters. You'd have to start completely replacing the characters at which point just make a new game.

There is zero reason to be the guy who makes a good hour long video every 6 months. You will have made more money sweeping the parking lot at McDonald's.

            Yeah, people don't realize that ads on youtube used to pay way more, because it was a bubble and these companies thought they could eventually find a way to make the advertisement model profitable but it isn't possible. They need to sell subscriptions to actually make money, which is why they're now pushing streaming so hard. It's sad because it was nice having a bunch of edited, premade, higher quality content. Streaming can only be time killing at best, because the creator has to constantly push out new stuff.

        You notice that no other JRPGs have 1/3 of the major characters be black? you think that's total coincidence? At most you will have one token black person, that's it.

            I am talking about a video game right this second anon. It's a legitimate factor in the game's failure that a game focused around its characters made 1/3 of the case black. I'm not arguing whether or not it should effect sales of the game, but I guarantee it did. Diversity never helps sales of a game.

    I must admit it's admirable to see devs continue to work on a game that utterly flopped. In the same way it would be to watch Sisyphus push the boulder up the hill. Most devs would simply accept their failure and move on.

      Well yeah, as they should. Wasting your time trying to fix something that just can't be fixed is moronic. Accept that it's a frick up, take the criticism it received into consideration, and apply it to a new project. Nothing admirable about what YIIKdev is doing. It's just dumb.

    the "inspirations" option in the main menu, silent protaginst mode, wesker-sephiroth golden alpaca, stripped combat minigames, it all points to a wretched kind of "we listened to your feedback" attitude
    not that the complaints weren't legitimate, but the response feels like treating the symptoms (of an affliction that is a shit story with dull gameplay) and not a proper change to the core of the game

    It's sad to me the game is so bad because there are some actually really good things in it. In particular, the world design and art style is very appealing, particularly in the context of an RPG. It has a really nice atmosphere to it, and the music helps that a lot. But when you have an interesting world filled with uninteresting people it takes away all the value of exploring and interacting with it. In a great RPG, it makes you truly want to live in and explore the world, but I don't want to live with or do anything with those people. The only remotely appealing one is Vella and that's just because she's physically cute, her personality is still unappealing. It makes you actually kind of feel bad for Alex Yiik, even though he's a c**t himself.
