Dude Protagonist from The Legend of Dragoon. Like said before, it's a great JRPG alongside being exclusively made by Sony from the PS1 era. Personally, I'd rather have Rose, who is the most important heroine in the game, instead of Dart but I welcome either one.
Playing: ICO&SotC HD, BF3, Grandia. Favourite: Xenogears. Official Fat Princess of the PSASBR board.
Dart is the protagonist from a game called The Legend of Dragoon. The game got too much comparison with Final Fantasy but a phenomenal game on its own right. I prefer Rose as well, since she's the second most important character in the game (plus, she's female and we need more female in PSASBR)
The protagonist in a game that's the poor man's Final Fantasy VII. Still a good game though; worth playing.
The "additions" battle system in LoD is great and unique in its own way, but not nearly as complex or extensive as the materia system in FFVII. Also, LoD has some good side quests, but nothing on the scale of chocobo breeding or the gold saucer.
On the other hand, the depth of the story, the details in the history, and the character development in LoD is far superior IMO. My favorite storyline in a game, ever. And I have played scores of RPGs.
On topic: Awesome that Dart gets in. I am actually surprised because LoD was so much over-shadowed by FFVII and other FFs.
If you like JRPGs then I recommend you buy it. It's a great game and it's only like $6 on PSN. The addition combat system makes the combat a lot more engaging and stimulating than most other JRPGs from its time and it holds up well. The characters are great too. I've never played a JRPG that has made me care so much about the characters, Lavitz especially.
