Hmmm.. Seemed beyond a cliche, as RPGs tend to be. Why can't someone do an RPG that's not set in your stereotypical fantasy world? I like playing good ones but you can only put up with the same storylines and characters for so long.. The Midgar parts in FF7 were cool, I'd like to play a whole RPG in a Blade Runner-stylee environment.
Eh... Phantasy Star? Sure, there are fantasy elements, but the overall setting is anything but the traditional "fantasy realm".
I don't have a problem with the traditional fantasy settings, but I do think it would be cool to see RPGs branch out a bit. One thing that I thought would be cool as I was reading this would be something along the lines of an alternate universe industrial revolution where different technologies and devices (e.g. fuel cells or arcologies) caught on and advanced in interesting ways. Anyone know if there's anything along these lines, for consoles or otherwise?
Holy crap, why was I not aware of this site? They have Entrepreneur! I wanted that game so bad back in the day but they stopped selling it when the sequel came out (pretty quickly I might add) and I haven't been able to find it since. Happy day! Why do I have to be trapped at school right now? Arrrgh, if it wasn't for my final in 2 hours I'd leave... fastest test ever... yay!
(sorry, unusually happy today since it's pretty much my last day! )
