    Breath of Fire IV? Grandia II?

    On the other side, Fable sold like gangbusters and they went for more money on the PC.

    No. You lie. I bet BOF4, and G2 sold well enough to be worthy of a port. Or they were already scheduled for a port. Dumbass.

    Counter checkmate.

    Game over.

    No, they bombed on the consoles. Theres a reason why the other sequels/prequels didn't get the same treatment.

    Or 'Damn why is it so HARD to produce a Sci-fi CRPG with turn-based combat, multiple ending/solution, Lotsa of character customization choice'. Honestly, I'm so sick of magic and elves with mouse button smashing gameplay.

    Guess another 'CRPG draught' year for me. :roll:

    Face it, the industry is dead (oh theres still a few galvanized corpses shuffling about, but nothing fresh and clean and good and right). Developers have moved on to things that are, at best, hybrids of rpgs and other things.

    *shrug*. Learn to adapt or move on. Or suckle at the bitter teat of nostalgia, but accept the fact that no one cares about your dreams of glory days.

    Not. Something is a commodity when a big number of retards have it, IMHO. And it wasn't the situation of the PC gaming at all, until recently. (i agree that console games are a commodity.)
    I was the only guy of the whole perimeter who got a PC in 1996. And even in 2000 having internet was something only nerds and young bourgeois had.
    PC gaming was a "goodie". In 96 it was rare to buy a PC just for gaming. Usually you bought the PC for something else and after then you discover there's some cool games you could play with. Then you get hooked and after that, you do buy PCs for it too.

    Today, in 2007, i don't know of any kid in my neighborhood who DON'T have a computer. And most of them have internet and a not-so-secure WiFi box that only asks to get.. hum. Now, PC gaming really is a commodity every stupid kids can do.

    Ultima Online is one of the first MMORPGs and even today i know of nothing as advanced. It was released on 1997. No MMORPG replaced it. Game quality in the PC platform was bound to decrease as the people viewed having a PC just like having a TV.
