As it's almost the end of the summer, i think it'd be a great idea to go out with a video game bang by doing a marathon of a game where i just play nonstop and have all my favorite foods nearby. Problem is i don't have a good game to play, so i need some recommendations. I want an rpg with the classic swords, bows, etc. on the Xbox 360 or something similar to the Persona franchise. Any help would be appreciated :D
It's the only game I've ever been able to marathon, so that would be a great choice, amazing world with very good visuals and a great soundtrack, pretty alright story with okay characters and a nice combatsystem, overall one of my favorite games this generation.
Tales of Vesperia? It's basically a textbook classic fantasy JRPG with all the niceties of modern game design layered on top. IMO the best JRPG available for the 360.
SWTOR. Play it until you win.
There's a WarGames quote somewhere...
Also, Star Ocean 4 has bows and swords and scythes and whatnot, but it's, y'know, a Star Ocean game. So it's not really traditional or anything. I'd actually concur with Lost Odyssey.
I'm just gonna hop back in and say that I hated Lost Odyssey, or at least the 12 hours of it that I played before giving up. The general aesthetic didn't work for me at all and, more importantly, the battle system simply wasn't any fun.
But that's just me.
Dragon's Dogma has always been on my list but i saw my friend play through some of it so i was on the fence about it. Lost Odyssey has been brought up constantly, i might try that. I'll keep my eyes on Tales of Vesperia for when the effect of two straight play throughs of Persona 3 wear off. Thanks :D
Lost Odyssey is prime for this. Couple summers back I really got into it even though I almost gave up after six hours because I couldn't beat a boss. But the story is pretty dang compelling and I enjoyed the battle system. Not to mention all the flashbacks feature some of the best writing and storytelling I've had the pleasure of reading.
Why do you guys keep bringing up Lost Odyssey?
Sure the characters, story, world and visuals are all right.
But the combat and overall gameplay is the most standard boring innane flate crap I've ever played.
Tales of vesperia, Star ocean TLO and FF13-2 are great.
The Witcher 2 is on my top 3 games of all time if you're looking for a Western RPG
no death non lethal run of dues ex: HR ?
i tried this. wasn't as fun. like its not really much harder either. my first playthrough i only killed guys i KNEW were evil bad guys, and even then i rarely did it. but limiting myself to the tranq rifle and taser and takedowns felt, well. boring.
the most fun playthrough id id of that was with just a upgraded pistol and the taser. thats ALL i carried weapon-wise. it was awesome.
