I posted my post durring college, didnt explain much.
What im trying to say is, comparing Suikoden 4 (ps2) to Suikoden 1 (psx), theres around 60 hours gameplay and really indepth story on 1, but 4 has around, 5-10 max gameplay hours. so theres no doubt games are just improving graphics, and not concentrating on storys.
the only reason GTA survives is cus of random killing, nothing wrong with it though
its just im pissed off when they do it to rpgs, just look at the old Final fantasys, now look at FF 10-2 ...
