@Jaz007 That Depends on what you are comparing it to. you would think for a final chapter they would go all out on everything. but still i think its the characters that drive everything forward and considering most of the characters didn't get alot of screen time and there were no final fantasy characters that upset people the most

@Areus The characters got as much screentime as before. Kingdom Hearts has always been a 20-30H per game series. They did go all out by the end, also tradition to have the end of the game be the craziest part. I cried at the resolution it gave, which is a huge achievement for it.

@Jaz007 They tried to force most of the story into back end of the game after finshing all of the disney worlds rather then from the beginning through a big missed oppotunity was they could have let you play as both Riku and Kairl kinda like what they did with birth by sleep

Ha ha thanks @Heavyarms55 glad someone liked my kinda rambly post! I'll happily swap ages if you want! (Is turning 38 this month) 😉

@TowaHerschel7 I agree with you that jrpg's usually have a more intriguing or interesting set up/story then most western rpgs. But it all comes down to the execution that really makes or breaks it, which both (and all genres) can easily mess up

And that's ok @Areus no problem!

I'm currently rather busy with work so apologies in advance if I don't reply to your post til a few days later or seem a little less talkative then usual!

I do appreciate it though!

@Areus The resolution picked up a lot at the end, but as I said, that’s the pacing of almost all of the games. A big build up with a bombastic last few hours. They had Riku’s story building in a similar manner and Dream Drop, And Birth by Sleep had a similar patter you just went through it three times, so those games also dropped their big bombs at the end too.

@Jaz007 And you completely ignore the omission of Final Fantasy characters who were more important than any of the Disney characters outside of Donald Duck, Goofy, and Mickey Mouse and possibly Yen Sidd and Merlin.

@TowaHerschel7 That was dumb and a valid criticism, but that doesn’t stop the story from being amazing.

To be fair. I don't think Goofy has ever been in a good Story. Or Mickey Mouse.

Disney might have all the well known characters but Warner Brothers kicks Disneys iced up carcass in the charisma stakes.

Give me Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam and Speedy Gonzales in my party any day.

With JRPGs my #1 issue is the teenage perfect-looking characters you can only play as. I would rather play something more cartoony-looking, like No no Kuni and Dragon Quest. There's only that much simplistic and unecessary teenage melodrama I can handle to keep my sanity intact. Although I understand that, in Japan, the market for JRPGs consists mainly of teenagers. That's who they make these games for, predomintantly (not exclusively).

My other major issue with JRPGs is the grinding. I don't have the patiance for that anymore: "can't beat this boss? grind here for 10 hours...". Thanks but nope, not doing that.

With Western RPGs it's the generic Fantasy that is the main problem for me. It's not easy to find something that truly stands out, as they follow a very similar formula of story, enemy types and characters. However, it's not a problem that's serious enough to ever persuade me to not play a game like that, it's just that I wish this area was more creative.

Another problem I have with Western ones, is that the bigger titles are getting too influenced by MMOs and action games for my taste. Not to mention tredning genres like survivalism. I basically just want KOTOR, Eye of the Beholder or Baldur's Gate as far as gameplay goes

About ordinary RPGs I will not say anything bad, I can say bad things about online RPGs because there are a lot of things you need to buy for real money and it's sad. And because of this factor, every time I choose a game, I look at the topic of how much money you need to spend in the game to get certain privileges. There are a lot of RPG games and it is very difficult to search for information about each one, so I mostly read articles like https://www.techshout.com/alternatives/2021/04/sim-games-like... about the best RPG games in order to quickly find out the information I need about a particular game. If you are going to start playing some online RPG, be prepared to pay money to keep up with the level of other players.

RPG isn't developing, this is the problem. Moreover, at many points there is even degradation. The problem with modern RPGs is that they lack new ideas and desire to make good game. Even the implementation of old and known elements is done badly. There is also a big problem in the mixing of genres. For example, now shooters add a plot with heroes, so people loose understanding where is RPG, and many people really call shooters RPGs.
