I don’t get to hear good and productive discussions often, mostly because I have friends who prefer discussions ABOUT video games, and show no interest in the complexity of the creation process. The reason for this thread is simple: Get to know your competition/peers, and what they’re striving to achieve, beyond profit of course.
Unlike most productions, mine has become a personal agenda, with both my past friends and society. I feel there’s a lot going on, certain beliefs which benefited society have become a comical intervention, and common sense is no longer applied to everyday life, along with moral obligation being questioned. It’s going to be in the form of a Jrpg, which is also a genre that is ridiculed for it’s constantly disappointing cliches. I’m simply attempting to bring back the image of past titles such as FF6, where a story scopes several lives, all intertwined with their own agendas against a similar cause. I feel this is what’s lacking in this genre. If games like Alan Wake and The Last Of Us can create such embracing stories and productions, so should Jrpgs. I sincerely hope with all my being that I fully accomplish what I intend to do, so that it influences the tycoon game companies to produce actual quality jrpgs, rather than further drowning the cliches and reproducing games which have been successful in the past to profit.
So there you have it, a cause beyond the fame and pocket change. Would anyone like to share their own story?
