I always felt side-quests were rather odd in RPGs.

To be fair, at the point in the game I'm at, i'm not even THINKING about saving the world yet. I am however, already trying to complete around 25 side quests 0_0.

I'm only 2 hours and a half in, and about 30 mins of that was the main story :lol:

haha yup.

I feel the same way about grinding. Like, I'm playing Dragon Quest V right now and the prince just got kidnapped. It's pretty urgent that he's saved immediately!...... but first I have to walk in circles for an hour killing slimes before I'm strong enough. :lol:

And of course the classic example of shopkeepers still charging you money despite imminent doom.

Shopkeeper: "30 gold each and I'm not budging. Damn kids and their music."

When I read this, I clicked to go to page 1, expecting to see the first post dated sometime in 2006. Dangit, where did time go?!

Anyway, it's not uncommon at all for old threads to stay alive here. We're one of those forums that doesn't automatically lock threads after long periods of inactivity. I like it this way.

I just started Final Fantasy IX the other day. Some years back I decided to play through all the main, numbered Final Fantasy games in order (up through XII at least).
FF VIII was so bad it caused me to take a long break, but I'm back at it! It's a lot of fun so far; a huge improvement over VIII and thus far it seems more enjoyable than VII.

Still working on Eternal Sonata. On chapter 5 right now.. Still got a ways to go. Sometimes the dungeons in this game feel like an eternity.

Game gets better as you go. One of the worst dungeons was at the beginning of the game. Can't remember what it was called, but I think it had like a brown/tan color palette. What a pain in the ass.

I'm playing Dragon Quest V on the DS. It's okay, but I don't like it as much as IV and the grinding is starting to get to me. I'd like to finish it before March, but that's looking unlikely at this point...
