He has a game from me to play before he gets another, in my estimation. Took me all day to clean the cracker crumbs outta the one I mailed him.
So where is my copy, eh? :P

I got an idea! Why dont we all chip in to buy it for GM. This way he can still play it and pwn all our asses, at the same time. :D
Nahhh, I can already picture a GM pulling out the game before even fighting his first eidelon. He loves all aspects of an RPG that FFXIII seems to have pulled from this game (for good reasons, but they pulled them out never the less).

Um... I hate to bring up this subject again. But Bioware has also stated that Final Fantasy XIII is not a RPG and a lot of stuff has begun to pop up after that.

oh well, its ok. i don't really care what genre a game is supposedly in, all i care about is whether its good or not

p.s. i disagree with bioware

How low are companies going these days to promote there own games. Doesn't bioware know that there is a reason that JRPG's and WRPG's are a different category.

Bioware -1.000 respect points >:D

Well, before I address the main point [on Final Fantasy XIII] I just want to take a slightly more controversial route,” Erickson told Strategy Informer. “You can put a ‘J’ in front of it, but it’s not an RPG. You don’t make any choices, you don’t create a character, you don’t live your character… I don’t know what those are – adventure games maybe? But they’re not RPG’s.

That's been the essence of JRPGs for the past one or two decades. Has this guy been living under a rock? What matters is the quality of the game as keyblade said, and many companies have managed to pull off great games with this formula.

And yes, agree with Da_Cloud. That freedom thing seems to be the line that separates JRPGs and WRPGs.

It's obvious that Bioware hasn't played any other JRPG's or regular RPGs for that matter. By them making such a biased opinion makes me lose all of my respect towards them.

I agree, fail on Bioware's part. Especially when the Paradigm System's point is to allow for character development, IMO what they said is clearly a load of bull.  ::)

Umm... Bioware just made the most biased opinion I have ever seen in my life. RPGs don't mean you have to create a character and live the adventure, it just means you take the ROLE of a CHARACTER and follow along a SCRIPT.

The way the story progresses resembles that of an fps. In other words short cut scenes swiftly behind each other, leaving little room to waver yourself away from the story.
