Best JRPG made this Gen...definitely. Not the best overall RPG though.
While I don't agree with the "convoluted storyline" thing I do get what you mean. It isn't thrown in your face like most other JRPGs. You have to do a bit of searching and reading between the lines to fully understand it. Once you do figure it all out though it's absolutely amazing. Very detailed and the characters are incredible. Very unique game.
