    Thumbs Down Scarring them for life also works I guess...

    Instead of trying to hook onto the genre of RPGs, what five games do you feel would deter a modern gamer trying to break into the genre?

    FFXIII has surprisingly attracted a lot of people.

    Here are games I love but I know would scare away newcomers

    BOF: Dragon Quarter

    SMT: Strange Journey

    Digital Devil Saga

    Front Mission because it's so fan difficult

    And I actually kinda hate Persona 1 so that

    SMT: Nocturne (Seriously, NO SMT title would break a newb faster then Nocturne)

    Final Fantasy X-2: NOt so much for the combat, but the super sugary coating

    Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen: So many complexities the game doesn't explain.

    Time and Eternity: This is for being an ugly, terrible piece of trout.

    Then again, maybe people wouldn't disagree because of how the game would feel to a newbie, but I'd take that just to be safe.

    Yeah, Tactics is for no rookie

    I'd say some of the garbage on Steam and the like that were inspired by Dragon Age and TES: Oblivion. Like Gothic 4, or Risen 3, or Two Worlds, or Blackgaurds, or Confrontation

    SMT: Nocturne.

    Etrian Odyssey: Any of them played above easy mode.

    Dark Souls, especially Online Mode.

    SMT: Devil Survivor broke a few friends of mine... though that may have been the strategy game element.

    BoF: Dragon Quarter. Like everything else listed here I enjoyed Dragon Quarter, but I admit certain mechanics are a kick in the teeth for newbies.

    I imagine diving into even a line up of the top tier NES JRPGs would be quite an ...experience for someone used to modern games.

    A lot of people have talked about gameplay. Let's talk about setting. I have never felt more vomit rise up in my throat at a video game than this scene from Infinite Undiscovery.



    You don't get trout like this in other genres.

    Wizardry IV. That game is brutal. Makes Nocturne look like a cakewalk. This game can scar vets for life, let alone newbies.

    *spews out drink* Really? I thought it was pretty good!

    Well, I guess there are quite a few difficulty spikes...
