Just got to say, I'm a Baldur's Gate sort of guy, but I loved Persona 3 (and wish there was some way to play it and P4 on the computer). I avoid JRPGs because their plots are just a series of twists…

How could it be good? People do whatever is good for them, and once drones become cost-effective, the federal government will have even more capacity for consolidating power among the few.

Hmm… I see Jemy as offering the most complete argument here so I will be critical (or just nitpicky) of him (or her).

I'm not meaning to rage against MMOs, but it will likely mean the end of my interest in the ES: series.
