The "2D Vs. 3D" RPGs Topic...Which do you perfer?
My Preference: 2D
Why: First off all, I myself like Colorful, Anime-Styled RPGs with the cool lush enviornments. To me it just feels like it brings me to a world in which I could never imagine. This is why my favorite companies/publishers are Working Designs, Atlus and GameArts because they bring me the games that I want.
3D games, as of late, have bored me greatly. Not that it sucks, it's just that the enviornments don't draw me in as much as in 2D games. I mean, games like Legaia and Arc the Lad just look so boring that I don't feel as if Im part of the game. In fact, gameplay in 3D RPGs feels like a chore. Well, games like Xenosaga...the story and gameplay is pretty damn good. There are not many good games like this one, but as much as I think about it I'd rather play Xenogears all over than Xenosaga anyday. RPGs are supposed to draw you into the world itself, or at least they used to...
Also, has traditional gameplay elements been forgotten when they started creating more 3D RPGs?
