Morrowind pluses: Lots of freedom, non-linear, lots of fun getting different items, going on different quests, exploring different worlds, etc. etc. etc.
Morrowind Minuses: To run it, I understand that you need some kind of super-computer with eight tonnes of memory and a graphics card that they only manufacture in Area 51 and on the larger Jovian moons.
Is there any RPG where a Chicano is represented in a positive light? The only game I can think of is OB64, and im not too entirely sure that dio is chicano, and even then he seems to conform to stereotypes. merci boucoup senor
When it comes to ethnic diversity, the first game to make most everyone's short list is "Chrono Cross" An Austrailian theif, a German mermaid, a French Harlequin, an eastern-european mad scientist chick, and a fat, black woman who defeats her enemies by sitting on them. While not the most sensitive stereotype, it's certainly a step up from Square's "Tom Sawyer." (You don't want to know.)
Since many of them tend to not take place on earth, we don't see very many ethnic groups represented in games. Most characters seem to fall into that anime limbo between Caucasian and Asian. The most postive latino character that comes to mind is Paco "El Puņo!" from Anachronox. He's a superhero who joins your party. There's a really sweet scene of him rescuing a young girl from the security system of a military outpost.
I was playing Suikoden, and I saved it on the world map, and when I went to play it again, I had no idea where I was supposed to go. I did the same thing with FF8, and that's when i stopped playing it.
|I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. hate, hate, hate, HATE when that happens. In any game, I find myself wandering around on the world map waiting for some triggered event to occur. All RPGs need to include either some sort of automatically updated journal, or some sort of radio that you can use to communicate with someone who knows what the hell is going on. (Think "Wild Arms 2")|
The Last Laugh:That's all, kiddlets. Enjoy your video games responsibly.
