@Ralizah Well, to be fair, Dragon Quest is the game every other JRPG was inspired by. It "differentiates" itself by holding to its traditions. Just something to think about, since at no point will it ever "go beyond" what's expected of the genre, no real twists or wrinkles to the formula. Yet, personally, I also don't think that's a bad thing. It's more like Pokemon, where it just has to further refine that formula, rather than try to break away or reinvent it.

@CanisWolfred I don't necessarily accept the soundness of that reasoning in and of itself (games can evolve in significant ways without changing what they're fundamentally like), but I do think you're right that, with regard to DQ, it's probably pointless to discuss it. You either like the core experience or you don't, and they don't attempt to innovate much on what has already been established.

I probably just need to alter my expectations about what the experience will be like, and I'll be satisfied with it. The series is still selling a million+ copies at launch, so they must be doing something right.

If nothing else, at least DQ is immune from the sort of radical experimentation that created abominations like FFXIII and XV.

This discussion has made me realize that I need to get back to DQVIII (already beat the story, just stopped at a point in the post-game). Also need to finish up Little Battlers Experience before Samus Returns releases.

Don't feel bad; I still need to go back and beat the Master Quest side.

I'm playing Tales of Symphonia on the cube. Got it and completed when it first came out. Going thru it again is an absolute joy.

Hey same here! I am playing for the first time myself, though I used to watch my older brother play it so I generally know the story already.

I have to say, even after playing newer Tales games, I feel like the game has aged pretty well. Sure, recent games have made vast improvements to the gameplay, but ToS is just as enjoyable even if it takes a bit of an adjustment. I've yet to find any major complaints from it but hopefully that won't change.

Sav'aaq!

I'm currently mostly playing Fate/Extella, Gunbarich and Strikers 1945 on my Switch.

Gunbarich is really pretty excellent, it's like Arkanoid X Pinball X Gunbird.

When my girlfriend has time to play, we usually play some Super Bomberman R to grind for gems, there are still some maps and characters i need to unlock.

Went back to Persona 5. 84 hours in, and I've reached the point in the plot where the game first starts. Hoping to finish it this month, since I can't imagine I have more than 20 or so hours of game time left.

This is the game that made my PS4 worth buying.

Also planning on revisiting Mortal Kombat XL once I get my Fightstick, It's mainly for Street Fighter 5 and Skullgirls, but I'm a sucker for tearing my friends in half.

My friend brought back my copy of Digital Devil Saga l, now I can continue playing it. Really want to face the ultimate optional boss, just demon to demon only (No Red Star strategy crap).

Disaster Day of Ruin (Wii, 2008)

Basically a disaster movie simulator by Monolith Soft. The game feels like a very over the top Hollywood disaster movie, complete with cutscenes. The plot involves former American soldiers turned terrorists (like in a certain Michael Bay movie called The Rock) and every kind of natural disaster imaginable.

The gameplay is very diverse, one of the main segments are light gun sections where you fight terrorists and you can even upgrade your weapons, lots of QTEs and motion control mini games, set pieces where everything is being destroyed by a volcano/tornado/tsunami/firestorm and you still are able to escape, a bit of platforming and driving sections.
The driving sessions are my least favorite because you use the wiimote as the steering wheel and it feels way too sensitive IMO.

Even with its flaws, it's a very fun game that I found hard to put down.

The years keep coming and they don't stop coming.
