The question is @CraigheadPro When It comes to how gaming has changed over time. Is there any particular areas or genres that you feel like have kind of died? And if so, is there anything you wish would come back? #AskCraigheadPro
I like rocker propelled grenade launchers... oh you mean RPG games?.. Meh.
I miss those too! RPG FOR THE WIN!
Thank you! This is why I lost interest in modern gaming!
Nice to meet you!
So *that's* what been going on with me. And I thought I was the only one.
I can definitely agree with you. While there's a lot of games that have been fun lately, not being able to get lost in a 40+ hour RPG is disappointing. I'm tired of hearing about how they take too long to make too. We were getting games like crazy back in the PS1 days. Now companies release trash and milk it. A good RPG will sell. They just need to make one. It may not be COD type sales but it should be good enough. The souls games, ni no kuni, and others did well. Not the type of RPG I'm talking about but still
I blame modern gamers. They ain't satisfied unless they have gore, guns or fast cars. I find that boring. Nothing beats a good JRPG.
I agree to a point. But, I think there's a sort of "second mainstream" group, that's not quite as big as the first, but close. This group has been largely ignored for the last generation+. It's pretty easy money for someone who wants to put a little effort in.
With the PS2, RPGs fell into a design rut, so they failed to evolved when they needed to with the PS3. Which isn't exactly true. Given that dev troubles forced the Ps3 to fall out of favor, with MS also aggressively grabbing RPGs but not really caring or setting requirement for advancement. So that even a notable title like Lost Odyssey regressed the genera.
PS2 was freaking AMAZING!
Technically they didnt die.Just many were not released outside Japan since they would not sell very well.
Dead, right. So that's why there's so many "Tales of" games coming out. Xenoblade Chronicles X is going to be released on Wii U. We've got Persona 5 coming out next year as well, but before that there's Final Fantasy Type-0 HD in March. Not dead quite yet.
Did you watch the video?
I can name quite a few that would prove otherwise : Ni No Kuni, Tales, Child of Light, Persona, Xeno, Dragon's Dogma...
Did you watch the video...?
Nah I found the title to be a repulsive click-bait.
I asked because your examples don't match up with what he's talking about, other than Persona and Child of Light. And, I personally don't care for either of those.
Does this guy even use English?
