Is there to much handholding in modern gaming? Or not enough.
It seems a lot of games have come to an optimal control scheme that is very similar. Do you think this makes a lot of games feel the same?
What do you think of status effects? Hard to balance them? Very few games can make them useful and not over powered. Smt comes to mind.
How rpgish is mega man legends 1 and 2?
Do you feel the complete game
Over is a valuable or outdated mechanic? I always found it interesting games like dragon quest never had a complete game over mechanic.
I often see people argue about which is better sci-fi final fantasy or medieval. While certain titles like the first 3, probably tended a little more toward traditional fantasy, the series has always been a combination of both to me. Ff4 and it’s towers is one of my favorite examples. What do you think?
More Yakuza Questions:
What do you think of the Yakuza series producer musing that he thinks Kiryu is probably still a virgin? I can certainly see that in Yakuza 0 (where Kiryu is too embarrassed to have a woman witness him purchasing pornography), but after all those games and all those hostesses that he spent “special time” with, do you think he’s still chaste?
After adding a cat cafe to Yakuza 6, what sort of current “fad” should the designers add to the inevitable next Yakuza?
Wheels, what needs to happen to actually get you to play a Yakuza game? Do stories of hunting giant tasty octopi to use as a bribe material to attract professional baseball players to your beer-league baseball team not sway you on Yakuza’s awesomeness?
What are some of your favorite examples of RPG urban legends, such as being able to revive Aerith in Final Fantasy VII or that there is a way to find Schala in Chrono Trigger (in the original release, at least). I’ve always been fond of the many Pokemon rumors during the first generation and the lead up to Gold and Silver’s release: the Pokegods, Pikablu and the infamous Mew under the truck, just to name a few.
Here is a picture I drew of robo in a sort of amano style. I did all the chrono trigger characters in the same style
