Hi everyone. Whilst surfing the web this weekend I came across a fantastic article from Joystiq about Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky called The Best JRPG You Haven’t Played Yet. While obviously this doesn’t apply to me - as I’ve already completed the game :) - it does manage to describe exactly how I feel about this wonderful game.
To quote from the article: “Few JRPGs blow me away nowadays. For a while, I figured this was because I am cranky and cynical. Maybe this genre just isn't for me anymore, I thought to myself. Maybe I'll never enjoy Japanese role-playing games as much as I did when I was growing up. Maybe I'll never reignite that bliss I felt when I first delved into games like Suikoden and Xenogears. Maybe I'm too old.
Then I played The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky.”
As regular readers of this blog will know, while I am still in love with RPGs, both Japanese and Western, I can empathise with the tone of the article, as Trails in the Sky is the game that reminded me why I fell in love with RPGs in the first place.
I’d like to encourage everyone to go and read the full article here.
