The Last Remnant wow I put a lot of hours into it as well. Once you understand the battle system and all the game has to offer it becomes a blast. Had a lot of fun with that game. In fact, I remember returning the game once because I couldn't put up with it...I bought the game back like 6 months later and just loved it.
I BEAT THE FALLEN BABY
Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all

I agreed with almost everything on this list. I would certainly steer clear of The Last Remnant though.
I wanted so badly to enjoy that game. I remember watching trailers for it, and counting down the days until it was released. I bought it on release day, and just couldn't get into it. I enjoyed that they tried something slightly different with it, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.
Glad to hear you enjoyed it though.
For him, the Gate will open.
The Last Remnant was, conceptually, very interesting, but the execution, at least on the 360 version, was severely flawed.
Always have a fondness for games with the potential to rise above the norm, even if they end up failing miserably and effectively sinking well below the line.
TLR could have been something great, but it's hard to hail it as a great rpg, despite still having enjoyed it a fair bit more than what seems to be the common perception of that game(i.e., overwhelmingly negative).
...what was this topic about again?
......Ohhh~right. Yeah. This would be an ideal first rpg imo.
It's very simplistic, and beginner-friendly in most every regard.

Agreed. It is a rush to be the first to beat a game sometimes. I think that trophy and gamerscore mechanics have somewhat exaggerated the effect. When you platinum something you are done with it right? Forever? No Reason to ever play it again?
I remember wasting DAYS playing my favorite RPGs as a kid, even after I had beaten the main story... sometimes more than once. I played because I felt connections to the characters, enjoyed challenging myself, perfecting game mechanics, ect. I didn't need some digital unlock, or a rise in gamer points. I did it just to do it.
As an older gamer now, I STILL go back and play my favorites occasionally. I am working on perfect saves for a multitude of FF games, and various other ones. I guess that kind of like my platinum trophy for those games... but anyway.
I think of it like this. People play games for enjoyment and entertainment. Whether you like the characters, story, ect or you like the instant gratification of a trophy unlock. There will always people on both sides of the spectrum. Gamers trophy hunting alone miss out on the nuance of most games, ESPECIALLY role playing games... So in the end, it is their loss. ^^;
