The gaming market is monstrous. The characters are generic, the quests forgettable, but the options given to play through them all are still fun. The character as the player’s realization in the created RPG world is very important. A friend of mine being an active table player suddenly began reading books( he didn’t use to do it since his childhood).
Blending together the traditional elements of a Japanese RPG with the up-tempo pacing and styling of an action game, Square’s effort to make a dark and cinematically intriguing game was a resounding success. There are many plot twists that include cut scenes involving characters that allow the player to have a “real-time” feel with the story.
The player can rename all of the characters in the game including the ever present summons (called Espers in FFIII). The story, like any Atlus game is the real selling point and actually got me to play through it twice. Having a female as the main character in the game is a concept that was not used very much prior to Final Fantasy III.
But if the direction is not perfect, the game turns into hard work and it makes the player take advantage of all the improvements (even if he is not willing to). The characters have “expressions” that while being very basic, convey the general theme of each scene to the player.

Of course, when Final Fantasy VI is released, I might have to replace this with that one, as we all know that VI is the greatest of them all. In this way the player can really have a different experience by playing repeatedly as different characters and treating party members differently.
Final Fantasy VIII had a lot to live up to. Its predecessor is regarded as one of the best games of all time, and everyone was expecting VIII to continue that trend. Other influences during this period were text adventures, Multiple-User Dungeons (MUDs) and roguelike games.
4. Jade Empire – Set in a fictional ancient China, Jade Empire comes from the makers of Knights of the Old Republic, and while not nearly as large in scope or length, the game utilizes an array of different combat styles and elements that make it sheer fun to play.
