I would not say that spinners is a deal breaker for a game, but I've never seen the point of them. They're an annoyance, and outside of very niche situations, they don't really add anything positive…

Most recent game I played with them was Strahd's Possession, but Lands of Lore & Eye of the Beholder also has them.

Things I'm glad we (almost) never see in modern RPGs

So I've been playing a bunch of RPGs this year, some old, some new, and there's a bunch of things that seem to be somewhat common in older RPGs that I'm glad we almost never see anymore.

I've only played the first game in the series, and while it's not pretty, and sometimes it feels awkward to play, it's actually really fun. Not a must play, but a should play, in my book. It's more…

I do like journals :P The best scenario for me is when you've got a journal that gives you good directions (and directions that are not just purely from where the quest giver is, but from say the…

The game has a campaign where you go through a few different strategic maps, and conquer everything.

As for the game itself, it has an interesting concept, but none of the pieces fits…

Yeah, I do. It was not as good as Descent, but man, those graphics were amazing (for 1998). That and Incoming were the graphical powerhouses of that year!

The game was 16h for me.
It was a while ago since I played it, but I remember immediately disliking it, and only sticking with it because I had been told that the story was good, and it turned out…

Yep. There's a skill that allows you to see what the radar blips actually are, and if you do so, you can shoot at them, even if no mech is close enough to actually "see" them. LRM boats (mechs with…

To me it looks more like an early VGA shareware game than anything else. And not one one from Apogee.

It's not unlikely that they've got a separate team working on phone games. They also released a cellphone exclusive Fire Emblem game a year or so ago.

It does not take that much for a game to be crap for me. A personal sub 6/10 if you may. but games I don't like are not games I would always rate sub 6/10 if I were to rate them for others.

Yeah, Dragon Warrior would still be counted as a CRPG. Consoles are just more specialized computers anyway, and there's enough crossover between consoles and computers (and were in the 80's as well),…

It's possible that that's what happened oversees. The golden age of pen & paper RPGs over here started in the mid 80's, and ended in the mid 90's, and during that time period JRPGs as a sub-genre…

No, CRPG is a much much older term, pre-dating the tag WRPG, and even pre-dating the very existence of JRPGs. This is opposed to pen & paper RPGs, which are not CRPGs. JRPGs are by the way CRPGs.

Is lockpicking and such not mostly based on your "Thievery" stat? That goes up with levels. Your thievery is 2*level + class/race modifiers (if you're trained in it, I think). Robbers get +30, Ninjas…

Not sure if The flame in the Flood would really fit into the RPG category. It lacks any real RPG-like elements, and is instead more of a survival game.
