Here are a few things Many Many Many RPGs suck at.
I particularly like the part emphasising the importance of Mechanics, they should matter more than stats.
But honestly I think Pillars of Eternity is gonna suck massive donkey balls, I doubt its actually going to adhere to any of the things mentioned in the article. which is why TRINE will always be the BEST RPG EVER. no stats whatsoever !!! You just can't beat that. Yeah Yeah I know Trine is a Puzzle Platforming Beat'em Up but I often find that many non-RPG games are better at these things than actual RPGs, I mean just look at Bioshock (don't give me that look, You know what I mean). Ironic huh ?
anyway what do you guys think ? (Don't hold back... Lulu wants Brutal Honesty.)
