    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Finished FFXV (knowing about all the story that was cut months before release made it a very melancholic experience). Since that I've been switching between Octopath Traveller 2 and a couple of titles I got on sale. Octo 2 started of pretty good but due to the inherent design the story is very...

    SPOILERS Let's Review: Final Fantasy XVI (Contains Spoilers)

    It's suprising how terrible the hunt-based side quests have been in FF games when they did them so well in FFXII, yet they constantly fail to repeat or improve on them. About the gameplay, I had a feeling this was the case based on the demo. You have one combo and specials on cooldown, which is...

    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Finished World of Final Fantasy after a 3 year brake (had nothing better to do) and forced myself to complete Battle Network 3 (Those games aren't that fun imo). Now I'm kinda listless about what to do next. Finding a good RPG with a likable cast, interesting lore and cool villain hasn't been...

    Final Fantasy XVI General Discussion Thread

    Without going into spoilers, I've heard this game is bleak and has nobody worth rooting for. Guess my wait for that one good singleplayer Final Fantasy continues. Thanks for ruining other fantasy franchises 'Game of Thrones'.

    Focused RPGs

    I've been on an RPG mood for a while now, but finding ones that have a focused story/campaign with interesting worlds and lore has been a bit difficult. Most modern RPGs seem obsessed with having 80% or more be 'side quests' (how is it side content if it's the majority?) or have an 'open world'...

    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    I was playing Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Dropped it at around the 10 hour mark. I gave the game a chance despite my dislike of open-world design because everyone kept saying it somehow revolutionized open-world games, but I sure as hell didn't see it do that. A gigantic map that takes...

    Final Fantasy XVI General Discussion Thread

    All of this is quite promising. I hope this is that actual good single-player FF we haven't had for two whole console generations. I just hope it isn't open-world, cause then I'm not getting it.

    Your First RPG?

    My first RPG was Kingdom Hearts for action style gameplay and for turn based it was Final Fantasy X (saw the characters in KH so I migrated). I still remember the TV spot for KH back when I was a kid (about 8 or 9), it was so dramatic and cool: "Are you strong enough to raise the Keyblade?"...

    Fun beginner friendly Strategy/Tactics games?

    Thanks for the recommendations. I'll look into Wargroove and see if it's to my tastes. :-)

    Fun beginner friendly Strategy/Tactics games?

    Thanks for the recommendation. I have read good things about FF Tactics. I do own a PS Vita, and the online store should still be up so I might be able to get the remastered version digitally. :-)

    Fun beginner friendly Strategy/Tactics games?

    I've been getting into strategy/tactics games recently, and was wondering if anybody who is familiar with the genre has any recommendations. I do play primarily on consoles, so that does limit the available games for me though. Titles that are beginner friendly would be good. The gameplay can be...

    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Just finished with a playthrough of the PS3 Ratchet & Clank games for a nostalgia trip, had a lot of fun. Right now I've started a playthrough of the God of War saga in anticipation for GoW Ragnarök. It's cool to look at how the series slowly develops between the instalments. I feel you can...

    Dark Fantasy game recommendations?

    Mass Effect 2 is dark fantasy now? That website's list seems all over the place. Only ones I'd consider proper dark fantasy are Darkest Dungeon and Shadowhearts. The former is a bit off putting due to it's 'hard for the sake of being hard' gameplay and the latter is a rather obscure PS2 game so...

    Dark Fantasy game recommendations?

    I have played persona 3-5 and few of the smt spinoffs. I enjoyed them quite a lot. The settings are more Urban-fantasy than what I'm looking for at the moment but the occult aspect is there. Thanks for the recommendation.

    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Been busy with Daragon's Dogma Dark Arisen lately. It's a poorly balanced mess with bad quest desing, bad story telling and bad open world design. In spite of that I've been playing it for over a week so it has to be doing something right. Guess it's the atmosphere and occasional bits of...

    Dark Fantasy game recommendations?

    I've been in the mood for some dark fantasy recently, but I haven't had much luck finding ones that scratch that specific itch. I'm looking for a certain kind of atmosphere and mood, so I'm flexible when it comes to gameplay. Settings that deal with the occult and demonic threats, and the...

    What games are on your wishlist?

    Open world design is usually a major turn off for me. If I have ended up enjoying an open world game, it's usually been in spite of rather than because of it. I tend to prefer more compact game worlds where the content and quests are densely packed over massive maps, to avoid the open world...

    What games are on your wishlist?

    I recently got two from my wishlist: 'Elden Ring' and 'Stranger of Paradise'. One of them was a disappointment for me, guess which. Stuff still on my wishlist are: - Ghostwire Tokyo - Salt and Sacrifice - Dad of Boi Ragnarok - Bayonetta 3 (What's the hold up Kamiya?) - Legend of Zelda: Breath...

    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Finished up my first playthrough of 'Stranger of Paradise'. My feelings on the story are a bit mixed but overal my time with the game was quite positive. Tiamat and it's second phase can rot in Nalbina Dungeon though. I unironically had more fun with it than with 'Elden Ring'. I do wish the game...

    FFVII Remake - Sephiroth & Genesis

    I hope Genesis doesn't even get a joke reference. He's easily the absolute worst part of Crisis Core, and any scene he was in was nearly ruined by his smug face. He had way too big a role in a story that should have been about Zack, Cloud and Sephiroth and their history/connection. I also hated...
