Soooo....its Tales of Symphonia with no relatable characters, no real interesting plot moments and worse combat.

Hmmm, maybe not then. Funny review though, kinda what I expected when I saw a JRPG's name.

Bravely Default is probably the best example of a classic style JRPG we've gotten in recent years, although it may not qualify as a classic style JRPG as the combat and class system actually made sense.

What about Kemco and their numerous JRPGs released within the past few years? How good are those games?

Not played any of them yet.

I always had an issue with that 'female protagonist' tag. Why does that even exist? And aren't there minority's that deserve a tag more?

Anyway, from the game play I saw in Jim's vid, it looked alright, kinda, but I definitely noticed the dialogue isn't anything special. Probably not going to bother with it.

I love Yahtzee's reviews, but this is my first mid-year drought of AAA releases, so seeing him reviewing games that I have no interest or knowledge of kinda kills the replayability of the video for me, which is sad because I regularly re-watch his reviews from past years and they still hold up even if the games are forgotten. Hopefully in October Yahtzee's review of "that one game" should really spice things up

To get the attention of losers who play games one-handed, and the deviantart types who then provide the aforementioned with extra wank material.

Bit surprised he didn't review Carmageddon Max Damage. But he would probably lynch it anyway.

I keep reading the title as "I Am Satsuma" ...a crappier breed of orange. Which is kindof apt for this game, as Satsumas are smaller, pithier, drier, looser...all round generally just a cheap knock-off orange. It's also coincidentally a regular family Christmas addition, making me wonder if this game should really be called "I Am A Satsuma: But I dream to be an orange"
Oh damn, Am hungry now. 😕

Yes. I could get behind an "intelligent" or even "competent" protagonist tag myself. Quite the minority in general.

Underground porn business, gotcha! ;-)

It does make a little more sense now surprisingly.

I wish. Unfortunately, it's obvious that most choices the masses will list would become debatable. We would need something more specific for that work, but what?

I've got no issue with the tag, and i'm sure there are other tags for minority protagonists on Steam.

What game are you referring to?

I found this review funny because I truly could not care less about RPGs. I 100% agree with Yahtzee that the biggest problem is that they keep game-play and story seperate with a wrought iron-fence. When I feel like i'm getting a better experience with games like the FF and Xenoblade series by watching the cutscenes on Youtube rather then actually suffering through another tedious grind fest, then something is very wrong with your game design IMO.
