The way I see it, the best JRPGs live or die by their characters.
I suppose the combat, gameplay, and the pacing also has something to do with it, but whatever!
Even if a JRPG has a horribly generic storyline, and a shitty combat system, I can usually get into it if it has some really great characters.
So, does anybody know what the characters are like? Are they interesting? Do they have varying personalities? Are they likable, or are the villains (if there are any) completely unlikable?
I NEED TO KNOW. o_o
