With so many improvements to the original Xenoblade, does it take the crown as the best RPG of all-time?
What is the author on?
Lol, the Best RPG (not even JRPG) of ALL TIME?!! Don't get me wrong, it's an AMAZING Game, but hardly the best of all time, it doesn't have the best music, the best combat system, the best story or the best Characters, a really amazing game, but hardly the best RPG of ALL time
yeah, there's no way. I haven't played the re-release yet but Xeno 2 was phenomenal. However, even that probably doesn't make the Top 10 JRPGs of all time. And that doesn't take into account western RPGs such as The Witcher. Maybe I could slide Xeno 2 in the top 10 but I'd likely be hard pressed to. There's just far too many great JRPGs out there. Suikoden, some of the FF titles, Persona, SMT, Dark Souls, Lost Odyssey, Shadow Hearts Covenant, and so many others. Regardless of ones opinion that list doesn't even scratch the surface of classic, truly great JRPGs. I'm not going to argue the score. though I doubt I'd place a 10 on it based off what I've seen. At the same time Xeno 2 was, imo, a 9-10 so the original could be, at the very least, up there. But there's absolutely no way this is the best RPG ever unless this the only RPG one has played.
Excellent critical reception, excellent community reception(imo), and some of the highest user scores on metacritic(so far, based on sorting all games ever by user review score). Even critics give it a very high review score, despite it being full priced at 60 dollars and being already released on two other consoles with separate launches and despite the resolution. That doesn't just happen, there is something special here.
Must be bot reviews /s
User Scores lmao 😂
The greatest of all time. At the top of the highest mountain rests this game lol
Woah there I like the game a lot but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, it streamlines a lot of things that made classic JRPGs frustrating for new players but it lacks the depth of the classics.
I surprisingly still haven't played this game, but I'm hearing it's fantastic, so maybe I should. That said, to label something as the best game in *insert genre here* is not something to say lightly. So, you think it's better than the Persona games or Chrono Trigger? Heck, you say RPG, not just JRPG, so you also think it's better than the original Mass Effect Trilogy or Skyrim? You've piqued my interest though. With such a glowing review, maybe it's high time I give this game a try.
Errr... It doesn't take much to be better than mass effect or Skyrim tbh
"not something to say lightly Why? To me MGS3 is the best game ever made and I have absolutely have no problems in typing or saying those words.
Chrono Trigger was my favorite rpg ever until this replaced it.
Well it makes a change from witcher 3.
I clicked on the article and seen a pic of what I assume is of the game of some creepy weird doll baby mash up faces in crazy over the top costumes, that art style does nothing but remind me I'm wasting my time playing video games. If I can at least have an art style that pulls me in I can justify to myself wasting hours at a time playing with my little GI Joe figures on screen. Even Nintendo style does this better than the jrgp horeshit with a 35 foot sword.
Will wait for a sale before rebuying this, playing portable would be nice though
PFFFT! Best of all time? LMAO I can only assume whoever reviewed this hasn't played too many RPGs.
