    Best part about Nocturne?

    Dante wasn't ass kappa. He was godlike as shit save for the True Demon Ending boss where you can still use him, albeit much less effectively.

    First boss, or one of the first 3 bosses in Nocturne is some of the most eye opening shit ever.

    Shit was haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard

    I loved that the game was challenging and gave no fucks, untill you learned to abuse the system(which you wouldn't know unless you read FAQs or got tips), and even then it was cheap and gave no care, yo Dragon Eye up your ass. I actually got stuck on one of the Knights of the apocalypse and lost like 30 times in a row until by accident I left one of my wrong party members in the party who had the sleep spell. Got a lucky sleep and won the battle because of that. The game was cheap, Mudo/Hama actually mattered, and made you fear going into new areas because you can get killed in any random battle.

    I loved the fact that your party and main character were completely customizable too, something that's missing from the Persona series, but I can see the angle they are coming from there.

    Yo I didn't read any spoilers or know anything about the game when playing it through legal methods on my PS2. So when I saw Dante the first time and that theme came on, my jaw dropped.

    Yeah, same here. PM > TTYD by a long shot. Best game (or at least RPG) on N64 IMO.

    There wasn't much RPGS on the N64 anyways lol


    Though now I'm getting flashbacks to Quest 64 and had a memory card that was jammed into my only working controller that wasn't functional. Auughhh the pain of running through that game without saving. Another brutal ass game.

    Only other RPG I could think of was the Pokemon Stadium series. Spent hours on both.

    Definitely one of Nocturne's strongest points is the music. Holy shit was Shoji Meguro on point. All the tracks were atmospheric and powerful when it mattered.

    Then something like this kicks in and your brain just explodes from all the hype.

    That list is garbage

    Persona 4 at number 2
    Persona 3 at number 36 when its better than Persona 4 in just about every way imaginable (story, setting, characters, battle system that isn't dumbed down for bumpkins, etc)
    Dragon Quest doesn't make an appearance until number 35
    Alpha fucking Protocol is on the list
    Final Fantasy V over IV
    No Fire Emblem, Resonance of Fate, Star Ocean, Shadow Hearts, or Digital Devil Saga

    Seeing Persona 4's meteoric rise to most overrated RPG of all time makes me actually appreciate what the former champion, Final Fantasy 7, actually did for the genre.

    Also I've played most of the games on that list but not New Vegas yet I still refuse to believe it's the 28th best RPG of all time, especially if it's made by Obsidian

    I think the Last Remnant is glitchy as fuck on consoles X. Or one of those RPGs which is just almost unplayable on console with horrible fps.

    I recall Jin talking about it way way back

    Neogaf's essential RPG list. Seems godlike + it has available consoles you can run it on + time frame. Big fan of the list.
    This list is actually pretty good for the most part and I'm impressed how much information they provide about each game.
    If I was to give a list of changes I would personally make it would probably look like this.
    - All 3 Mass Effect games placed as a single entry, the nature of how actions of the earlier games affect the story of the later games (which is probably the biggest draw of the series) mean they should be taken collectively rather than individually it should also be noted that while 2 is the best game in the series it's also the least RPG-ish in nature, while 1 is technically the "worst" it's the most akin to a normal RPG.
    - Star Wars KOTOR in the top 10... I love that game.
    - Final Fantasy X taken off the list.
    - Earthbound (Mother 2) and Mother 3 raised higher up, Mother 3 put ahead of Earthbound.
    - Place New Vegas higher than Fallout 3, despite being way buggier it's a better game, and you can get mods/fixes online to remove pretty much all the bugs.
    - Deus-Ex, Persona 3 (specifically portable), Secret of Mana, Dragon Quest VIII and Crono Cross (kinda surprised how low this was actually seeing how it's a pretty well loved sequel to the game which is considered to be the number 1) all moved higher.
    TAKING YOU PUNKS DOWN!!!
    ^Bubbleberry_VII you are so godlike for making this.

    Winter is the only time the weather is actually good. Our winter is basically a European summer, but with less rain. Which isn't a bad thing since I hate rain, and our rain drainage systems are horrible.

    Also :tup: for Shadow Hearts, love that game. Sad i dismissed it at first.

    I played the original Shadow Hearts, got stuck on a mashing segment somewhere and quit. I can't mash to save my life in most games. Does Covenant still have those mashing sequences? I do recall the original Shadow Hearts having a pretty good atmosphere and a decent enough battle system.

    I felt in NV they made melee and unarmed be viable compared to small/energy guns because in FO3 unarmed was pretty bad and melee wasn't much better

    Melee/Unarmed was pretty godlike in FO3 if you had the Chinese Stealth Armor from the Anchorage DLC. You could literally walk up to dudes on Very Hard mode while sneaking (and with 100 Sneak) and get free criticals until they died. Virtually undetectable with a Stealth Boy added to that. And since melee/unarmed kills are silent, nobody could really find out where you were unless you purposely blew your cover. Found myself ditching rifles and such and just going with a Melee + Sniper build in every playthrough I did.

    Stealth is pretty damn OP in general in Bethesda RPGs. Hell, it's even good in Far Cry 3. Buy bolt-action sniper rifle, add silencer and high-powered scope mods, bulldoze through game.

    Chrono Cross gets too much hate. Yeah it wasn't the sequel everyone wanted, but it's still a damn good game on it's own.

    I like PM: TTYD over PM original personally, but they're both amazing so I can't argue if someone has it the other way.

    I bought Mass Effect 1 on sale years ago, plays maybe halfway through it and got bored. The universe never sucked me in and the gameplay wasn't really that fun :/

    I think the Last Remnant is glitchy as fuck on consoles X. Or one of those RPGs which is just almost unplayable on console with horrible fps.

    I recall Jin talking about it way way back
    Last Remnant on console has shit FPS, on top of running on Unreal Engine. PC version has shitty default controls but it's perfectly playable with keyboard and mouse if you go for a more MMO-ish keybinds. Alternatively you can just use a controller.
    Gameplay wise the PC version got a HUGE (in terms of impact, not really length) revision that changed a bunch of mechanics on top of having a new game+ mode, hard mode and a bunch of other stuff.
    See : http://lastremnant.wikia.com/wiki/Differences_between_Xbox_360_and_PC_versions for more info.
    Also you should bookmark this wiki because this is one of those games that tells you ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOTHING but has a lot of "hidden" effects on shit.

    yea but I like tank characters and they were only good when you can be stealthy but if they spotted you and were decent you had to be shooting if not all that power fist is going to do is get looted off your corpse :|

    He does a great Victor von Doom though, he makes him more sound like an intellect than UMvC3's voice actor more sounds like a brute.
