I wanted Laguna, Kiros, and Ward to join Squall's team when they first met up. :mad2:

Sorry. Can't be over 21.

I don't really care that much about them so I was totally fine with them not joining

Hm, perhaps subconsciously this was one of the things that irked me in the back of my mind. No variety in ages. They were all 18'ish

Plus after that reveal. Couldn't have Squall fighting beside his dad. That's just embarrassing... Oh Japan... You and your damn high-school love, and coming of age stories

Laguna was wearing sandals, he would have been a health and safety hazard. ;)

Laguna's cramps would totally slow the party up!

Only if that song could be the battle music.

I only found out a couple months ago that Cloud Strife himself was 21 during FFVII! That's ancient in jRPG years

In tales of Vesperia, the character Raven complains about being an old man and how he's past his prime.

Dude's like 30.

To be fair I do that a lot and I'm 22

Ugh. Raven did kind of over-play that bit. I liked the guy, but the act got old. Rowen still wins in that regard. An old man character that breaks all the tropes. And he's twice as old as Raven. 3 - 4 times as old as most JRPG characters. I think I want a Rowen-centric game lol >.>

In the game Mugen Souls Z, the "old man" of the group is Shirogane. He's 29 and the group constantly identifies him as "old man." What's more, he has old man level up and victory quotes like "get off my lawn!"

Part of me wonders if the whole thing was a spoof on what this topic is about. Or maybe it's just MSZ being Anime as hell.

Probably being anime as hell.

I think our topic is now to find the instance of the "youngest old man" character. 29 is the target,

Most of your hard-core, rpg gaming generation is 21-30+ now. They'll just have to make the characters in future rpgs older...:cool:

I regularly nuke this game with Xploder Cheat Cartridge awesomeness to make the impossible possible.

It really would be nice if there could be more than three party members again someday

A three-person party is a step backwards for the series, no matter how you slice it. :| /Grumpy old man

Pretty sure that's Square's way of admitting their games are too easy these days. Having a 4+ person party would be a cake walk for anyone even half adept at the typical JRPG slog. Godhood by level 10 doesn't sound all that appealing

That's already the norm for most people who play VIII, though.
