I'm liking what they showed of the writing in this game. Never played the other games tough as I usually don't like adventure games. Still not really sure if I should get it. How important are the older games to understand this one? If I need to play those first I will probably until I can get them in a sale.

@stimpack: You obliviously shouldn't ignore them. I just think you shouldn't start with them now that we recently got modern, somewhat more accessible games that are similar.

@metalhammer: That's rather depressing to hear. Do yourself a favor and play Fallout 1 or 2 if this has your interest. While this is by no means a terrible game, it pales in comparison to some of the older CRPG stuff.

I see these kind of things suggested all the time and it just makes me think that people have some really rose-tinted glasses on for old CRPGs. If you can't stand this game because it's too "janky" you really won't be able to play those games today. They all have bugs and the UI is worse partly because they are made for low resolutions. They also won't have any real tutorials and expect you to read the manual.

This game is a much better starting point for someone new to the genre than any old game people recommend them to play instead. It's definitely not a bad game and it's getting great reviews. Maybe wait for a patch if you are really scared of bugs.

Console debut: Timed exclusive to one of the consoles but is likely coming to PC too. Sometimes it's just a port of some game that is already available on PC

Console exclusive: Coming to only one of the consoles and PC.

Only expect a game to actually be exclusive if they only call it exclusive with no added word, although sometimes even that is wrong and it will come to PC too (although most likely not). Sony will sometime say "Only on Playstation" which usually also means that it is a true exclusive. Otherwise always expect a PC version unless you are explicitly told that it won't come to PC.

This quick look made me want to catch up on One piece, loved it when I was younger. I read the manga until some time just after Franky joined.

This game is really good and I had grown sick of all these retro platformers. But this game is a really good game on its own and doesn't just feel like a cheap attempt to cash in on nostalgia. The fact that it's a really well balanced game instead of trying to be as "hardcore" as possible, like most other pixel platformers, is probably one of my favorite things about it.

Always online requirement probably.

They already said this wouldn't be the case after Sim City. I doubt they will mess this game up too much, they probably don't want to mess with the ridiculous cash cow that all the DLC and expansions for this game is.

@thegorilla: THIS IS KIND OF A TERRIFYING QUESTION.

Spending hours decorating their house and having them live their life only to kill them all when you grow bored of them is pretty much how you play The Sims.

There is a reason most expansions introduce new ways to kill your sims and new ghost types related to them. This is the best video I could find with most of the deaths in Sims 3:

Yes, wall heights and better window placement! Always was the thing missing to be able to build interesting houses.

I also vastly prefer the art style over the Sims 3, it feels more like a natural evolution from the first two games.

I would guess the catch is all the expansion and millions of overpriced DLC furniture, just like in Sims 3.
