Legend of Zelda is not an RPG. And the FF series are not Action Role Play games: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_role-playing_game

By RPG I was kinda expecting something like Planetscape Torment or Xenogears.

Look kid, you seem to have found yourself some mould and come off to be desperately trying to squish yourself into it. It has to be the other way around. Your work has to reflect you. Which may still mean that it will lack objectivity and any real practical value to your readers, but will do so differently.

And sadly, it isn't the easy way. Finding your space in creative work is probably the hardest way to go, but it's worth it.

This thread is the New Coke of abrasive video game reviews.

It only serves the purpose of reminding you how good the classic versions are.

I think it was pretty good, it would get you a C at GCSE level if you took out the swearing

I admit I found his 'Aerith's retarded house' comment about the Hellhouse funny

The rest of it just makes me pull this face:

^ Yeah he had some good stuff going in the beginning but then it all sort of went downhill from there. Better luck next time - remember that in order to draw anime, you need to be skilled at the classic arts as well. Meaning - learn your shit, THEN start making fun of it

Oh, and

Alright I made an another attempt to get out of the train graveyard and this time I succeeded. I then climbed up the sector 7 plate to fight my second or third boss (alongside tifa and barret), a man in black or blue called Reno. Reno was setting up a bomb to collapse the plate onto the slums, which he does. Afterwards barret throws a fit and yells "this is all screwed up".

Ladies and gentlemen, Barret is aware, just like cloud. DUN DUN DUN!

I'm not into RPGs all that much, let alone weak-by-today's-standarts ATB system, but I still consider FF7 to be one of the greatest video games ever made, mostly for the epic story it tells.

For my last playthrough, I just used cheats to disable random encounters, maxstat the party and go through the story using default & canon weapons, lol.

ATB was horrible even in 1997. As the great Yahtzee says,

How about we just walk up to the enemy and press one button that bonks him on the head?
Especially true in a world where the elder scrolls exists.

So, you're basically complaining that the game wasn't of a different genre? Might as well be bitching that you can't perform a Hadouken in "Gran Turismo."

How can you find this game difficult, Umatbru? I'm baffled. I was a total noob when I played it and even I didn't die as many times as you seem to.

Seriously, the game is easy as fuck. I'd hate to see what you'd have to say about "Battletoads" or "Shatterhand."
