Instead of Toriyama, Name an Author Who Should Write a Final Fantasy Game

#1BlueDragmirePosted 1/31/2013 8:04:06 AM
After years of suffering under Japanese game developers who cannot write a story if their lives depended upon it. Bad plot twists, silly stories, DLC additions to even get the full story, whatever. Its inferior work. Obviously, we can do better than this style over substance approach. What can a real writer do?

I nominate Brandon Sanderson. His novels usually come with a complex battle system, he writes interesting fantasy worlds (The Way of Kings feels like it could be a Final Fantasy), and he's got a sense of humor. Any other thoughts?

Sorry. I was sad when he died too... over sixty years before I was born.

I bet Terry Brooks could write a good Final Fantasy.

Heck, even if we wanted to go along the lines of a fantasy/sci-fi (More a VII, VIII, XIII style game that doesn't focus as much on the fantasy side) I bet the late Anne McCaffery could have done a better job, or her son Todd McCaffery.

But what the heck, I nominate myself.

I'll second it. But only if the final boss is me.
