So you guys think that many game developers take too much time with designing graphics and not enough time on the story?

It depends on the game. Xenosaga evened it out in my opinion, having both story and good graphics but I've played others that were strictly eye candy with a generic story.

Miles is on the border of good and evil
I guess in some cases...I just like older games because well, they were alot more fun but if I bought a game that had a wonderful storyline but had PS1 graphics (The game being for the PS2) I'd be really angry! (I'd still play it >.> I just wouldn't be amused) I'm all for story other graphics, as I guess I made it obvious in my post back there somewhere...But graphics DO matter...I just think they forget that it's not just good-graphics that gamers want.

not always. suikoden 3 had beautiful graphics and retained an engrossing deep story line as did shadow hearts covenant. ffx also had a good plot in my opinion though the game itself was too short and linear for my taste.

just depends on the game in question. i mean there were very BAD old school rpgs too. i think in dragon warrior it was the same rehashed kill the dark over-lord save the princess crap. swords n serpents for the nes had no plot at all...you just went through dungeon after dungeon. granted zelda does the save the princess-dungeon crawling thing as well....but it does it with style!

If we were going off of "every newer generation game has great graphics," then yeah. If we were comparing it to other games, I would call it average.

"Fucks sake" isn't a view. And in "my opinion" shadow hearts covenant had a story line that far out-shined many of the ps 1 and ps 2 final fantasies. It was the first game I played like an old school rpg. Anotherwords, I could not put it down until I beat it. Besides no matter what self proclaimed elitists are going to proclaim their views are the holy grail and everyone else is stupid. Aka: Opinions are like assholes and everyone has one including me. lol. Never said you had to walk my road Raist. Do what's best for you.

No, but it's an obvious reference to my many other rants on the matter, which I can't be bothered finding or repeating. I'd paste an opinion I agree with that I found on another forum, but we apparently don't have spoiler tags here.

1. No.
2. Final Fantasy is hardly known for it's story (that said, I don't actually know what it's known for, beyond being generic yet decent).

I'll understand a difference of opinion, but some opinions are just wrong. This much I assume we can agree on.

I agree on the story part. Suiko3 has the best story in the series imo... but compared to a lot of the games released at the same time it's graphics weren't really super good. A lot of it, like in Suikoden 4, was a bit too choppy to be on par with stuff like Xenosaga.

I'm sure they'll improve by Suiko5 though. 3 and 4 were the Suikoden teams first two 3D games.

I really like old school better. I would love them to make a new FF like in the old days with little people and powerful crystals. Old school is always the best.
