Maybe some play for the story of the games. You may not but others do. You play to be the best at SP (kind of pointless since there are no leaderboards or anything therefore no way to prove you are best) I play a SP game because I'm intregued in the story since the point of a SP experience is to be like an interactive movie.
As far for turn-based gameplay I was not talking of this game I was talking about games I am looking forward to and there are no old school feeling RPG's anymore which as a gamer from back in the day I miss.
You can't say you are the best when there is no true way of proving it. There maybe someone who is better then you who does not come on the forums or post on youtube (or other forms of media) to try to convince others they are a vet.
As far as turn-based RPG's I enjoy them they have a nostalgic feel to them for me. Since back in the day that's what a lot of RPG's were with the exception of the zelda's of the world. however realistically the Zelda's of the world led to GoW
You do realize without games such as Zelda there would be no Gow or NG. Those classic games from systems like the NES led to all of the games we have today.
I don't understand your hang up on titles of yourself and others. I have been done talking of such things I am trying to have a game discussion not an arguement over such stupid things because no matter what I say or anyone else says you seem to think your opinion is always the only right one. As for Zelda as I said before it helped pave the way just as Final Fantasy paved the way for any RPG of the day. The difference is just like the GoW series games evolved over the years.
