X is like the weird cousin to 1 and 2. It’s similar but different. The main story is actually super short in X so you can actually smash it out in a short time but there is just like unlimited side quests and exploration. But yeah it’s not turn based and using arts takes a while to get used to but it really does open up. It’s up there with my favourite series of games. I’ve put over 400 hours into XBC2 on the switch lol. That does include the expansion prequel but still there’s just so much to do.

I'll probably give it another shot one of these days when I'm bored, but I have to be in the right mood! I've heard basically nothing but good things about the series.

I'll probably continue to slowly make my way through the Final Fantasy series, but honestly 9 was the last one I was super looking forward to playing. I've heard 10 is great but for some reason it doesn't appeal to me as much. Though to be fair 8 didn't really appeal to me either and I ended up really liking it. Don't want to touch the MMOs though.

Honestly 10 is great. It’s the best of the turn based combat. You can switch party members in battle which makes levelling everyone way easier. The skill tree system (I can’t remember what it’s called in this game) is pretty cool too.

I love X, once you get your own giant Mech, that game gets so fuckin satisfying.

Yeah, you definitely don't play X for it's story, I think that helps differentiate it all the more from the mainline titles.

Maybe that’s partly why I couldn’t get into it too. I play most RPGs for the story. I also hated the music though lol

Finally been able to play some Breath of the Wild now and god damn the Shrine quests are so annoying. I realize they're supposed to be fun but I mostly just hate them. There are wayyy too many.

If you've never been a fan of the puzzle-based dungeons of most 3D Zelda titles before BOTW, then you very likely wont like the shrines (and I honestly question what you're even doing with a Zelda game since that's always been integral to the series).  But the good news for you is, that you don't have to complete them all, and hell you don't even have to complete any of them (outside of the initial ones that give you your runes).  It will make the game harder if you don't beat some of them, as that is how you can expand your life and stamina wheel (and collecting enough extra heart containers allows you to pull out the Master Sword), but you can beat the game all the same without even indulging in the shrines.  I personally don't get what's not to like about them, but I suppose such 3D adventure puzzling isn't going to be for everyone.

I don’t mind puzzles. I just think they are way too similiar, and I think the look of them is kind of boring (so far at least). Would enjoy them more if they were fewer and longer and if the «design» or whatever it’s called varied a bit. I’m aware that I could skip them but I want to follow the game properly even though I don’t enjoy doing them.

I did everything I could. Replayed the whole game on hard mode and got that platinum trophy. Loved it. You haven’t finished the story yet?

I've finished the story now and am now up to chapter 6 on hard. Just making sure I get everything I missed in the first playthrough and checking stuff online as I didn't use any guides on my first playthrough.

Really enjoyed it but fighting Sephiroth in Midgar just felt wrong.

I don't see the issue with how many there are.  They aren't required, you can do as many as you like or don't like.  Some of them are rather long, but most of them are shorter, that is true.  I enjoyed them as brief diversions in 3D puzzle solving from my main adventure, and only ever tackled them when I felt like I wanted that break from the main gameplay.  Never felt like a chore or annoying to me, but to each their own I suppose.

I fucking love 10, it's my favourite one after 7. Combat is great and the sphere grid is one of my favourite ways to level up, especially when you use the advanced one that gives you more flexibility to customise how you level up your characters.

I also really liked the story, didn't think it was that bad at all...

For the record, when I was talking about X, I was talking with Russel and Cheerios about Xenoblade Chronicles X, not Final Fantasy X.

Finished RDR2 on the PC. The open world is great with all the stuff you can do but the main missions were scripted to death. I fucking hate how the game often compels you to walk slowly.
