This was more or less how I was talked out of buying the most recent Final Fantasy game that came out. I’m more into rpgs for the “wandering around the world and poking everything” aspect and less for the “watch cutscenes and dick with random encounters” part.

I’m probably doing it wrong.

Granted, this problem isn’t exclusive to JRPGs.

ALSO! It would really mean a lot to me if folks would have a looksee at this post on my Tumblr to see how to help contribute to my continued employment. I’ll probably make a big post on the site when I get a chance to, but for now that link should help explain things!
