As you can see, this is a counter thread to the bad/annoying parts of great games thread.
My contribution pertains to an obscure PS1 RPG called Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. I've watched someone play this game and it is absolute crap. It's almost offensively easy, the combat system tries to be strategic but it is very shallow and uninteresting, it has some of the most lazy, unimaginative areas you'll ever come across in an RPG, it is girly to the max (which would not be a bad thing if the rest of the game was any good), and it showcases some really horrible music. It's just a poor RPG in general.
But in spite of that, it has some really good writing (the story in general sucks tho). The writing is humorous, fun, and has alot of enthusiasm, which is sorely lacking in many RPGs. But the actual game is just so poor. It's a shame that a fairly good game like The Legend of Dragoon has really stilted, flat writing, but this piece of crap has really energetic writing.
Anyway, what are your choices?
