So whats the deal with this game? Bland story, empty characters, gimmicky time travel. Why is it so celebrated everywhere?
It's a good game that's overrated as fuck.
>You didn't play it when it came out!
Obviously doesn't stand the test of time if it can't be judged now, and certainly not the "best game ever made".
More generic than bland really.
More cliche than empty, plus doing their quest makes them more interesting
>gimmicky time travel
It's just a different take on the light/dark world mechanics, do something here to change something there. It actually adds flavor to the gameplay
Overrated yes, but still a classic.
Legit OP I see retards claiming this game is some sort of miracle
people who think it's more than an average-at-best game just isn't too versed in RPGs, or just blinded by nostalgia
That's all there is to it
