"The combat is quite engaging but everything else feels, at best, perfunctory."
|85 95%||Chrono Trigger (1995) - Aug 07, 2021|

"I desperately want to like this but I just don't. There are virtually nil RPG elements. It's an action adventure game, which is not something I'm interested in. In the light of its TRPG roots and the potential it held, it's a small, stale, sad shadow of what was promised."
|50 29%||Final Fantasy XIII (2009) - Dec 28, 2020
"One of the Final Fantasy franchises's main selling points is its world exploration and versatile combat but, in FF13, the developers decided that players should instead run down narrow corridors from point A to point B in order to engage in pre-determined fights to be rewarded with hours of bad cutscenes for doing so. Of course, this makes the game feel empty. The poor story, sound design, and voice acting don't help, either. I added an extra 5% because Snow looks like Seifer from FF8."
|65 58%||Final Fantasy XV (2016) - Dec 28, 2020
"It's a heavily edited and pruned half-finished game with sloppy mechanics that's padded out with MMO-style content. It nevertheless manages to eke out some emotional resonance with a handful of meaningful cutscenes sprinkled throughout, so kudos to whoever's responsible for salvaging this mess. It's better than FF13 but somehow more of a disappointment because it's a failure of execution rather than a mere creative mistake. And yet, I've played it through twice. What does that say about me?"

"The unRPGfication of Final Fantasy began here."
|45 23%||Detroit: Become Human (2018) - Sep 23, 2018
"Another mess of a David Cage game. Robots aren't human, so a narrative that presents them as analogous to oppressed minorities by, e.g. putting them at the back of a bus (!), is uproariously, insultingly stupid. That said, Connor, one of the three playable characters, is lovely. But then there's Jessie Williams, playing Robot Messiah, and being as unlikeable as he is in real life, i.e. very. Inasmuch as this works, it's almost entirely thanks to Connor's actor, Bryan Dechart. Good job, Bryan."

"This is my rating of the first edition."
