I mean come on, the only thing that Final fantasy did better were Aeons, which we stopped using at some point.
Lost odyssey is the last True turn based RPG, that actually looks good, has a never before seen plot (with the immortality and all). and actually rewards you for using every character you have, if you want to abuse that cool "immortals can learn everything" mechanic, so late game you got a near broken party (that can still lose because the game actually has a decent difficulty).
unlike Final fantasy which is paper, scissors (use wakka for flying, auron for heavy). you can build immortals anyway you want, which is the reason you are allowed to make them a master jack of all trades for whatever skills you want, and you have another slot left for a human to be in the party.
I just downloaded Final fantasy x/x-2 HD remade, but for the love of god I can't stop thinking about Lost odyssey now. my god.. this was the last true to the roots RPG I played, and it's gone, for a few years now.. and I don't know what to do.
** Casuals have ruined my life!!!**
I would become a game designer just to create a sequel, but no one would give the money anyway. there is not a single game out there, that is better than Lost odyssey at this point, not turn based anyway..
