It was $1 on GMG at one point, right after one of the golden joystick awards. Mafia II has also been on such a discount (the same one, if I'm not mistaken), but it was without any expansions….

It's not really similar, because it's telegraphed and usually easily avoidable. There's a difference between respawning mobs and random combat, both in how they're designed, and how they impact the…

What baffles me even more are games that allow you to rebind some controls, but not all. Here they've actually spent time & resources to implement control rebinding, yet they won't let you rebind…

No, you're not.
The Final Fantays series has always done certain things right, that's why they got so popular.

Even if you make a cliche story, why spoil the handful of plot-twists you put into it, if you've not written your story with people knowing the end in mind? Some stories are written in such a way…

Now that's a game I would rather forget having ever bought. There are good things in it for sure, but the frame rate… Single digit farmerates in real time combat is no fun. And in the later parts…

I hate grinding, it makes me feel stressed out as it makes me feel like I'm not doing anything. I have a similar issue with watching TV-series. That said, I do understand why some people like it.

Nintendo have at least kept 1 generation worth of backwards compatibility with their two latest consoles.

Why do so many JRPG give spilers in the intro?

This is something that has been quite common in JRPGs for about as long as animated intros have been a thing: Major late game plot spoilers in the intro.
