Dragon Quest rant.

Ok unlike my squeresoft rant this one is gonna focus on my complants for the Dragon quest series instead of focusing on the hisrory of the company that created the game.
In japan Dragon quest is the most popular Jrpg but outside of japan it not that popular compere to final fantasy in terms of sales and reception.
There a good reason why it not that popular outside of it home country.
It freaken outdated compere to Final fantasy.

In traditional Rpg games When ever you press the A button you simply open the door but thank to Dragon quest outdated formula you are force to go through a selection of actions instead of simply pressing the A button

When Jrpg went into it golden age during the 90s thank to Gem like chrono trigger, final fantasy VI, secret of mana and illusion of gaia.
The innovative concept of in dungeon savepoints and freely saving in the overworld became a mainstream concept for Jrpg because it made it much easier to save instead of going to the nearest church to save.
But dragon quest seams to ignore this concept you still have to go to the nearest church save.
What The world story? it just your generic save the story with your cliched protagonist.

And if you are sick and tried of Akire toriyama artstyle then you would hate this series in general as it fueled with his generic character designs and Expies of dragon ball z character.

Re: Dragon Quest rant.

This rant is so pointless that I'm not even going to comment on what it stands for.

To tell you the truth I doing rant purely because of my boredom.
I still praise the zelda series and final fantasy Series heck I still like capcon game in general.
These rants are not always opinionated I just doing them for the sake of looking into the flaw of these companies and games series.

Re: Dragon Quest rant.

The rants need to be from the heart. That's why this thread's pointless.

Find another way to cure your boredom.

And all rants are opinionated, hence them being rants.

Re: Dragon Quest rant.

This is not a rant.

This:

The new DmC by Ninja Theory will SUCK.

Not only did they change Dante from a cheesy, fun-loving guy who thrives on strawberry sundaes and pizzas to an angry teenage street brawler to make him 'relate-able'. Not only did they perceive Dante as an 'over-the-top fashionista', they called him 'uncool', and decided to give him a 'harder, tougher edge' (by making him skinnier. What). It's not that they missed the point that Dante's red coat wasn't supposed to be 'fashionable', it was supposed to emphasize movement and red, being the colour of heroes in Japan, was the colour chosen. It's also not that they messed with his backstory and turned him into half-angel, half-demon, when he was originally just half-demon, and accepting his human side was a large part of the story.

NOT ONLY THAT. NOOO THAT'S NOT ALL.

It's not that they released games in the past that failed; one barely breaking even because it was the only Playstation 3 exclusive at the time, even though it had choppy framerates and slow combat, with the other game making a LOSS because it was RIDDLED with bugs and STILL had the problem of the previous game.

It's not that NINJA THEORY IS A MEDIOCRE DEVELOPER THAT CAN'T GET UNREAL ENGINE TO WORK RIGHT, NO MATTER WHAT GAMES THEY DEVELOP.

It's not that they're taking a GIANT STEP BACKWARD to make the game run at 30 frames per second (it's like I'm really back in 1999!), when DMC3 and DMC4 ran at 60fps. With Devil May Cry 3 running at 60fps on the PS2!

It's not that they're taking the SAME HEAVENLY SWORD SYSTEM and putting it into DmC by taking out all four of Dante's basic styles (Gunslinger, Swordmaster, Trickster, Royal Guard) and giving him only two offense stances (Angel for fast attacks, Demon for heavy attacks) while promising 'plenty of weapons for all!'. They gave the guns cooldown times, as (why would you do that) and made the combat floaty and slow, with a 'focus on air combat' which equates to mashing a button to stay up in the air for long periods of time.

Why did you miss the point of the gameplay? It was NEVER about being cool, it was ALL about the combat, learning to move and hit without getting hit, not breaking the flow of combat. As of 3, it became about OVER THE TOP gameplay, while still retaining that hit without being hit idea.

They DUMBED DOWN THE GAMEPLAY to put more effort into the BACKGROUNDS. WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO MAKE MOVING BACKGROUNDS WHEN THE FOCUS IS SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE FIGHT. WHY ARE YOU BREAKING UP THE FLOW OF THE GAMEPLAY WITH 'CINEMATIC' FINISHERS (THAT ALMOST EVERY OTHER ACTION GAME HAS)

WHY DID YOU TURN DANTE'S DEVIL TRIGGER INTO A NUKE THAR REGENS HIS HEALTH, MAKES ALL ENEMIES HELPLESS AND CAUSES BULLET TIME.

WHY ARE YOU RAPING ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SERIES AND TURNING IT INTO A GENERIC HACK AND SLASH WITH DUBSTEP MUSIC ATTACHED.

/endrant.

Is a rant.

Also this was posted a loooong while ago, and some things were released to shoot down some stuff, like the cooldown on guns. However NT are still mediocre developers and the new DMC will still suck because it's still heavy/light gameplay

Sounds like your trying to pick arguments for the sake of arguing.
