    I don’t think there’s a “side.” For all intents and purposes, Squaresoft has been defunct since 2003. Enix was definitely closer to being the surviving entity. If I remember correctly, Enix was...

    If they knew that so many major franchises were unattainable they should have packed the thing with more entries from the franchises they did get hold of. They should have gone to 25 games and added...

    Ehhh. It's not bugs that makes that franchise suck. It's the brainchild of the guy who made Final Fantasy II, after all. I'd honestly take Oddworld over both SaGa Frontier and Parasite Eve. Comparing...

    In what universe is anything with SaGa Frontier “way better”?

    At this point I think we "deserve" to at least be told what is going to be on the thing in the first place. I wonder if the reason they're keeping mum is simply because they haven't finalized the...

    Gran Turismo is to the Playstation Classic what GoldenEye will be to an N64 Classic—100% necessary but sadly unlikely. Crash, Spyro, and Castlevania all have remakes/re-releases that complicate...

    It'd be embarrassing not to have Crash Bandicoot. That'd be like the SNES Classic not having Super Mario World.

    The PlayStation Classic is in a weird bind because if you include just the most popular games you'll only cover 4 or 5 franchises by the time you fill the 20 slots.

    True but Jumping Flash is on there. Now I like that game but it’s definitely more obscure than Lunar.

    Lunar on PlayStation Classic?

    Stop laughing.

    Just curious what the chances are, especially with some major classics being in doubt for various reasons leaving some space to fill (Symphony of the Night is being re-released,...

    I'm a firm believer that the more a strategy guide is needed the worse the game is.

    If we're talking just cover aesthetics then Cosmic Fantasy 2 is probably the worst. That airbrush nonsense is just awful. What a relic from the 80s. Gungriffon Blaze was also kinda average.

    Call of Dutys literally have better writing than most RPGs. No joke there at all. It might sound counterintuitive to a 90s kid but if you want a game with a good story today don't play an RPG.

    Nothing that specific. It's more the overall tone. There's a lot of overdramatized nonsense dialogue and scenarios in RPGs that feels super artificial and not in the fun ham and cheese artificial...

    The alternate Rayearth logo is neat to see. The game's manual even has a screenshot with it instead of the revised one which I can only assume was intentional to give people a glimpse of it. But if...

    I don't mind cliches or even getting the same product over and over again (I play Mega Man for god's sake). What annoys me about a lot of Japanese games is that they often lack self awareness....

    Genres themselves--at least the way we define them--are something of an obsolete concept. Game design in the 80s and 90s was--obviously through necessity--the epitome of reductive design. The goal...

    I think it was a silly twist regardless because it turns the story into kind of an idiot plot but what changes in particular?

    Complaints about dialogue dating Lunar are a bit obtuse since Lunar itself dates Lunar. It's a 16-bit isometric RPG with random battles. These games couldn't be more 90s if they wore JanSport...

    To be fair, having to pay to save your progress is incredibly inconsiderate of the player's time. Having to replay parts of a game because you couldn't save isn't difficulty--it's tedium.
