Continuing to delurk on mailing lists for the most random reasons:
You insult _Xenogears_ and the rabid fans in that preview! Bad
person! Bad! Bad!
No, I am not being fully serious, just living up to the rabid fan
stereotype of XG fans. But honestly, XG is the best game I have ever
played in my life - not that I have played that many games since XG,
having been in college ever since playing it. OTOH, I am largely
apathetic towards gameplay in games and, with only a few exceptions, play
them largely for the same reasons I read books or watch anime (you know,
plot, characters, themes). And these things worked very well in XG, at
least in my ever-so humble opinion, especially the characters. I freely
admit that the gameplay in XG was unbelievably, deeply flawed. But
Miang! And Krelian! It may not have been a brilliant game, but it was
such a good anime/book!
---Kyra, whose buttons are being pushed far too much for her "work
instead of writing to mailing lists resolution." _Gatsby_ is also one of
my favorite books, but I will not go into that now, I will not go into
that now, I will not go into that now (unless someone asks me
directly. . . sigh).
