The definitive flowchart for every JRPG ever made
Village festival. Encounter! Androgynous bad guy. So much win in this.
For once I actually lol'd. This was f-ing awesome. 'Enter a name'. 'Good morning, you have amnesia', this really does summarize every RPG ever.
Eh, not at all. Tons of RPGs where you don't have amnesia. Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Temple of Elemental Evil, Oblivion, Fallout, etc.
This article is about every (J)RPG out there...you just named a whole bunch of Western developed RPG's
@ak3nji: I was responding to "this really does summarize every RPG ever. " posted by dchalfont. I was even ignoring the erroneous title since they mention JRPG in the article. Even then, it's not applicable. Folklore and more than a few FF games, off the top of my head, don't have the protagonist having amnesia. Gotta get a chuckle at people disagreeing with facts.
Imo tis harsh to pick on JRPGs though... I mean fallout is such a horrible cliche... Oblivions main plotline could be little worse either.
They need to change this to Every JRPG Ever. "Save Data deleted by younger relative."
Final Fantasy 10 didn't even follow this. Maybe every generic JRPG...
Thanks to this i don't have to play FF13 Versus
This list only covers around 3 Final Fantasy games, Legend of Mana, Chrono Trigger and Dragon Quest...
a couple Zelda games also, even though they aren't RPGs.
Maybe Skies of Arcadia a bit, as well.
Really should at least cite it dude
I see very little Suikoden references there. I wonder if that is a good thing.
the Shadow Hearts games for example...
Definitely the best RPG i played last generation, Judgement Ring ftw! =D Also on subject, you can do a similar list for movies/stories - Rocky(how many times can he beat the odds...5 or 6 movies later...), any Romance/Rom-Com movie(She can't find the right guy, he stumbles into her life, he's a jerk...some circumstances forces them to spend time together(a bet), she see's another side to him, they fall for each other...she finds out his nasty secret(the bet), they stop seeing each other, her friends tell her he's leaving...if she doesn't get him back he's gone for good...epic rush to the airport, only to see the plane leave...she is crushed...but wait...he missed the plane because he lost his wallet or some crap, she confesses her love, blah blah blah, the end!!!) Actually i can't be stuffed writing anymore, go to this link and you'll get a good idea on how stories are made. http://www.divineparadox.co...
Loved Shadow Hearts, especially Covenant. There needs to be more RPGs with battle systems that keep the player involved. Shadow Hearts and Legend of Dragoon are probably the only turn based RPGs I've played that I actually wanted to get into battles.
Funny stuff and true You are... The mana tree, somehow haha
