The RPG Square’s 1st Birthday

The RPG Square has now been in operation for over a year, allowing me to share my thoughts and opinions about some of the greatest RPGs ever created.

I will continue to update with reviews, editorials, music reviews and top 5 lists of games I have played and loved. I have also decided to start adding some previews of upcoming RPGs that have caught my interest. If you have any other ideas, please add your thoughts in the comments.

Thank you for reading, commenting and reminiscing about all these stories and characters, that we have all experienced!

  1. Loving the posts! Keep it coming 🙂

  2. I’ve been reading The Rpg Square for quite some time now. It’s really great to see something so different from the usual game reviewers out there.

    For many years since I got Internet, I saw great numbers of RPG Gamers acting like stupid fanboys. The ones who love FF7 but hate 8, the ones who hate 7 and 8 (“too pop”) but love 6 (“retro”) or 9 (“back to its roots”). The ones who hate Cross because “it’s not Trigger 2!”, the ones who think that anything from PS2 or younger don’t deserve attention, the ones who keep arguing about Zelda being an RPG or not… And the list go on.

    But TRPGS articles are apart from that. The first impression I got when I read something like “Creativity Comes Out When Something is Limited” is that the one who wrote the texts simply like to play RPGs, no matter what. Just like me. It’s about seeing the good side of those awesome experiences without letting rivality, favoritism or immaturity interfere.

    Of course you don’t have to love EVERYthing. Damn, I hate MMORPGs and the “World of Mana” games (Mana lover here!). But I won’t try to convince the ones who like it to resign to my taste. Just let people play what they want and be happy!

    One of the worst RPGs I’ve played, Beyond The Beyond, is on the top of my “games to finish” list. I hated that game so much it became so adorable, like a retrohate that developed to some weird kind of affection. Just because the awesomeness of RPG gaming is beyond (ha) that. It’s all about “What Captivates Me About RPGs”. Not about a war where you defend your feelings as hard as you try to destroy other’s. And in my opinion TRPGS understands all that.

    Ya know. Anybody can love Hollywood women and say they’re gorgeous. But you gotta be a hardcore lover to clearly see the hidden beauty of the humbler ones. And I respect everyone’s point of view, if they really see beauty where I don’t.

    Sorry for the loooong post and the bad english. Greetings from Brazil!

  3. Awesome comment, thanks. I am not really a fan of giving scores to games, but rather write reviews on RPGs I love and outline the best parts so people can make their own decision if they want to play it or not.

    I think what makes the Final Fantasy series so special is the fact that they are all different and I can appreciate each one for what they are. It is much more interesting that way!

    I hope you keep reading and add more thoughtful insights. Thanks!

  4. Good deal and congrats! It can be tough to get a good blog off of the ground, especially when trying to generate traffic and such. Keep up the good work!

  5. Happy birthday to your blog! I look forward to the next year.

  6. That guy

    Just found this blog by accident but I have to say I really like it. I cut my rpg-teeth on stuff like Dragon Warrior and FF, then the wonderful SNES rpgs (I do tend to gravitate toward the B-list like BoF and Soul Blazer, but my favorite is Chrono Trigger).

    Where am I going with that? Well, it’s nice and oddly refreshing to read new takes on older games, and from someone who clearly has passion and respect for the genre as a whole.

    • Thanks, it’s great to hear from you as you really seem to enjoy RPGs as much as I do. The older games just seem to have so much heart and charm and are more worried about being a fun game and telling a great story than showing how pretty they are.
      I have played only a bit of the Breath of Fire series, BoF III and a solid amount of BoF IV and had some great experiences, so maybe I should go back and finish IV!
      Welcome to the site and I hope you add some more great comments.
