JRPGs. I do not understand the appeal of androgyny and grinding. Funnily enough, I enjoy both of those in porn...Wait, did I just say that out loud?
Seriously though, I don't get it. I don't understand why somebody would spend twenty six million hours levelling up to defeat one enemy. I suppose if that's what you enjoy, great. I just wonder who the first person was to think they would create a game that required this because they thought people would think it would be fun.
Funkymonk, I can understand your problems with Ico/Shadow of the Colossus, but you have to understand that the HD remake only exists because of nostalgia. I still place SotC in my top three games ever (God Hand and Okami are the other two, since you ask) but I can appreciate that it, and Ico in particular, must be very dated by now. I still love Ico, but it is ten years old, and the "unimaginative" puzzles were still new at the time. I'll give you that on the camera and controls, but to me hating the game because of that would be like shunning Scarlett Johansson because you didn't like the way her hair was on the first date.
Are you with me Dr. Wu
Or are you really just a shadow of the man that I once knew?
Are you crazy?
Are you high?
Are you just an ordinary guy?
Have you done all you can do?
