    Smash The absolute worst RPG of every generation.

    Much like the defining generation thread, except let's place a spotlight on the games that did nothing and probably hurt the genre more than anything. So let your nerd rage out.

    I don't know what turn-based RPG was the first to have me control one character and make everyone else full AI, but that.

    Persona 1 for all generations. That game plays like shot so much, regardless of version, that it transcends generation. SMT I had aged leagues better than this game and it is much older. I really have no idea what the hell they were thinking and how they managed to hulks such a phenomenal series on top of it.

    Final Fantasy IX on the PSone... with all the great games that came out around then, Chrono Cross, Legend of Dragoon, ect... FF IX was the low mark of that time with awful character designs, some bordering on insulting (Quinna was completely insulting)... it had a horrid combat system that dragged like mud and did everything it could to hinder the player, from Trance being completely useless to the skill system that would not let you use all the skills you have learned... i really wanted to like the game, bought it on day one, turned out to be total rubbish, my major gaming letdown of that year...

    XIII isn't even the worst game in the series, let alone an 'entire generation'. Pretty ridiculous comment.

    Even as much as I dislike FFXV, there are worse RPGs out there from this era. For example, Langrisser Re:Incarnation -TENSEI- is the worst reviewed RPG from 2016 with a score of 35. I haven't played it, nor heard of it, but that's terrible.

    edit: tone came off harsher than I intended, sorry.

    The thread title is 'The absolute worst RPG of every generation'. Not 'What is the worst RPG you've played?'

    His comment didn't really offer anything within the context of RPGs as a whole, or of the generation as a whole. Just "lul FFXIII sucks." Like, come on dude.

    Love how people disregard the thread topic and use this as a platform to join the "FFXIII sucks" circlejerk.

    Try staying on topic next time.

    Can everyone please calm down and move on? Let's not derail this thread any further because it would be a shame if it suddenly closed.
