Comment on Square Enix Back in the Red: “Expect Even More Remakes!” by Anonymous:

Should have I added “” to my comment? It appears not to have been clear enough to some.

It was meant to showcase just how hollow, baseless and useless the “westernizing” comment was, since RPGs are a western born idea that dates back to 1780.

What is really needed is not fancy graphics nor a complex battle engine… But a good story to identify yourself with so you enjoy partaking in it development, linear or not.

Examples?
Chrono Trigger. Basic menu-driven battle engine. Nice (for its time) graphics and basic visual effects. But packing a whole lotta story, multiple paths and party configurations, a “secret” character, killer (still) music and a cast anyone can relate to.
Chrono cross tried too hard to envelop those ideas into 3D and fell short even though it had many times more characters and endings.

Final fantasy 7. Had comedy, tragedy (Aerith… Sniff) a basic fighting system but a complex magic/materia system, etc.

If Square/Enix wants our attention back, then lets ask them to re-do Chrono Trigger from the ground up and give it Darksiders’ or Tales of Symphony’s combat system just to keep with current trends (while making your buddies control Robo, Marle, etc over the net). THAT would sell like crazy.

    How very Christian of you. I’m sure Jesus would be so happy about how caring good-willed you are to your fellow man.

    Let’s all be American and go over and do it, all of it, and just watch them all react fakely for fun.

    You have to admit the urges and face them. That’s what happened when I analyzed them. Deny them and pretend it’s not you, it consumes you. Admit that it’s what you like and simply ask ‘why’ and you realize you’re like just about every other guy out there who has a sexual fetish built up from an event when they were a child that snowballed into whatever it is now. Keep pretending it’s wrong or not you, and it’ll become you whether you like it or not. Accept it and look for an outlet to let it be …

    Yet a handsome man doing so is a compliment. So if a creep who doesn’t fit your taste photographs you in a naturally beautiful pose it’s voyeurism, but a handsome douche photographs you drunk, it’s flirting. It’s just the truth of the matter, so I don’t give a fuck anymore.
