Why is there so much dialogue? I literally just don't give a shit. I put my game at 2000% speed just to get through the beginning and it still takes a while. I just want to play. Anyone feel?
A combination of Japanese games (JRPGs in particular) liking to tell you information you already know, and the story being really paper-thin so they just text-dump you so you don't read any of it and assume the game has a more complex story than it actually is.
Or Golden Sun just kinda sucks.
Why even bother playing? It's an RPG that's plot and character dialogue driven. If all you're interested is the turn-based combat system you might as well just bust out an Excel spreadsheet and play with numbers.

>jrpg hero has just lost his love interest, has a sad look on his face, sad music plays, other characters keep their distance while weeping, lighting a set design produces a melancholie atmophere.
>Background characters: "jrpg hero must be so sad!"
>Jrpg hero: "I'm so sad"
Nostalgia. I remember missing a lot of djinn and skipping a boss area. I want to beat the final boss like cake now that I'm older and I want to see what else I missed. That's all really.
Do it yourself pen and paper RPG's are awesome. There are enough charts online to roll up any kind of encounter you want. Just choose a system you like and set out for adventure.
Golden Sun was the babby's first JRPG (at least for a lot of Nintoddlers and as such received a lot of praise. It's actually pretty shit. The whole script is twice as long as the script for MGS2 and you're reading that dialog 5 words at a time since it's on handheld.
I hate this shit.

>Treat the audience like they're fucking retards (though there's a good chance they actually are)
Why do weebs love this shit so much? JRPGs are the video game equivalent of soap operas.
Currently playing this game too. I don't remember the dialogue being long in the intro but at the part I' m at now, the dialogue as reached it's peak. I feel the same way in that I speed it up and it's still too slow.
What's worse is that I enjoyed the gameplay elements a little earlier on in the game but now it's gotten kind of stale. This combination has made me stop playing for the time being as I don't really have a motivation to keep going.
It's definitely a nostalgia game, the ds version proved that the formula they used sucks.
The only interesting things about it were the magic shit going on like reading minds and shit.
I honestly can't think of too many other rpgs on the GBA, there's tales of phantasia if you don't mind the botched translations.
For me Golden sun is one of the few games using a classic turn based JRPG battle system. There just are not many of them without some shitty ATB, Tile and what not gimmick
