You know that sentiment of catharsis you get when people stop talking about how X game is the best thing ever made for many years only to get replaced by that anger you feel when you are told that the game that replaced X is the best thing ever now? Well, Famitsu really brought those feelings forth because of the Survey they recently conducted for their magazine.

The Survey consisted in asking which RPG the Japanese public considered the best RPG of all time. With more than 2,000 votes. Which 56% belong to men and 43% belong to women (With 1% that didn’t specify a gender). In the range of age; 9% belonged to teenagers 36% belongs to people between 20 and 29 year olds, 27% for people between 30 and 39 and 16% for 40+ year olds.

What’s the best RPG of all Time? Survey Says!

Now, the results of the survey are nothing short of impressive, considering I don’t see a certain title standing anywhere close to Number 1. But I do see the game we’re talking about (Persona 5) as the best RPG of all time according to the demographics that voted for it.  Here are the Top 20 picks:

1.-Persona 5 – 256 Votes

2.-Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation – 218

3.-Chrono Trigger – 194

4.-NieR: Automata – 177

5.-Final Fantasy VII – 169

6.-Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – 165

7.-Suikoden II – 155

8.-NieR – 151

9.-Persona 3 – 131

10.-Final Fantasy XV – 110

11.-Xenoblade Chronicles – 104

12.-Final Fantasy X – 100

13.-Xenogears – 91

14.-Persona 4: Golden – 90

15.-Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen – 82

16.-Final Fantasy VI – 81

17.-EarthBound – 78

18.-Final Fantasy IX – 75

19.-Final Fantasy VIII – 74

20.-The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – 72

So. Final Fanta-I mean; Persona 5 has acquired the status of best RPG of all time according to the avid readers of the Famitsu magazine. I’m certainly surprised that dreaded VII is in number 5 of all places. There’s also a very big abundance of Final Fantasy titles over Dragon Quest titles. And my beloved Xenoblade Chronicles stands at number 11 which stung for a little bit.

But hey, the greatest highlight is the fact that The Witcher: Wild Hunt actually got a place in the Survey results. you know why? Because the game is actually developed by a western company. I must remind you that Famitsu is a Japanese magazine, which means this western title is beloved by Japanese audiences to some degree. And that is great to see.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is on the horizon, with our review already available. There’s just one week left until the game’s official release on February 29th, exclusively on PS5. This highly anticipated sequel to Remake, based on one of the most beloved video game stories, is best experienced without any spoilers, according to creative director Tetsuya Nomura.

On Twitter, Nomura made a final request for players and content creators to avoid spoiling the game for others, especially on social media and video-sharing platforms, where spoilers can spread rapidly. Naturally, there’s a specific moment that everyone is eagerly anticipating to see how it will compare to the 1997 original, and it’s bound to be quite chaotic on launch day. Nevertheless, Nomura still holds onto a glimmer of hope for humanity and has made a seemingly impossible request for content creators to exercise a degree of restraint.

It’s important to remember to include spoiler warnings when sharing content related to the game’s story on social media and video-sharing sites to avoid spoiling the experience for others. I would greatly appreciate it if you could avoid using scenes from important parts of the story in your video thumbnails.

Nomura points out that the developers intentionally did not limit the recording and sharing features of the PS5 for any aspect of the game. They believe players should have the freedom to share and discuss their favorite gameplay moments. It remains to be seen if that trust was justified.

Do you think players and content creators will follow Nomura’s request and minimize spoilers? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Xbox may want to become more acquainted with the Platinum Trophies on PS5 and PS4

Obsidian’s first Xbox game, Pentiment, a historical adventure, is now available on the PS5 and PS4. From what we’ve seen, this port of a highly popular game seems to be solid, and we aim to provide you with a review soon. Meanwhile, one aspect caught our attention regarding the conversion that Microsoft may need to address in the future.

Pentiment’s list of Trophies perfectly mirrors its Xbox Achievements, featuring identical descriptions, titles, and icons. There is a slight variation between the two versions: PlayStation offers 42 trophies to unlock, whereas Xbox provides 41 achievements to earn. The distinction lies in the Platinum Trophy, which is awarded once you have collected all the other trinkets in the set.

Since it’s not included in the original game, the developer has not named the trophy, so it appears as ‘PlatinumTrophy’ in the list. This has already generated amusement among Trophy enthusiast communities. “They chose such a basic name for the Platinum Trophy and somehow still messed it up,” a fan expressed.

This issue is quite insignificant in the bigger picture and could likely be fixed with a quick update or patch. As Microsoft gains more experience with PlayStation development, we hope their command of the Trophy system will improve. After all, those platinums are difficult to earn and deserve a more memorable name.

Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon have been excluded from the final roster of WWE 22K24

2K Sports unveiled the complete roster for the upcoming WWE 2K24, featuring more than 204 playable superstars, including 70 Legends who are no longer part of the main rosters, along with eight managers. However, fans were quick to point out the absence of some notable names from the list: 7-time WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and former WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. Lesnar was previously excluded from the Forty Years of WrestleMania edition.

Following accusations of sex trafficking against McMahon by a former WWE employee, a report from the Wall Street Journal brought the issue to light. Although Lesnar’s name was not directly mentioned in the proceedings, insiders informed the WSJ that he was the unidentified WWE champion in question. McMahon refuted the allegations but stepped down as WWE CEO the day following the federal lawsuit.

Nonetheless, Lesnar and McMahon will still be present in the game. GameSpot has reported that the Lesnar vs. Undertaker match from WrestleMania 30 may be included in Showcase mode. It is speculated that another match already confirmed for Showcase mode (Stone Cold vs. The Rock, WrestleMania 17) will probably include an appearance from McMahon as well.

WWE 2K24 will be available for purchase on March 8th for PS5 and PS4, or March 5th for those interested in the Deluxe or WrestleMania editions.
