A text heavy RPG like Star Ocean is NOT for an 8 year old




It may be text heavy, but whats wrong with reading too much, practise makes perfect. And the english is of low level anyway, because it was translated from Japanese.

It is likely to bore an 8 year old to death. He is likely to loose interest in it because it is so text heavy. The game isn't quite as bad as Elder Scrolls, but damn it it tries Smiley Tongue

EDIT: The previous statement was not meant as an insult to either series. I LOOOOOVE Elder Scrolls and SO is pretty good too

SO IS Star Ocean dude.....




Ouch i keep emberassing myself. I ment to say elder scroll's Smiley Frustrated.

And Magna Carta is rated T. And an 8 year old kid will not understand the part about molesting. And i said MAGNA CARAT because of the story, RPG's are all about a stoyr, and Magna carta's is top notch. But thats my opinion.

P.S. lol i should spell check more ofthen

You are probably one of the very few people who actually likes Magna Carta.
Please do not send me a friend's request without telling me who you are and where I know you from. Thank you.

Neopets:The Darkest Faerie  or The Hobbit both for the PS2


Keyword "RPG" those are not RPG's at all.

Neopets: The Darkest Faerie got awful reviews.

I agree, unless the 8 year is a complete idiot. But yes, I dont see any reason not to suggest a text heavy RPG for an 8 year old. Not only is it good for reading skills but if he's that interested in the game it's also going to help with his vocabulary... Id much rather have my kid play an RPG wich he reads text; if i had a kid LOL...

And who said Kingdom Hearts is too dark? The game is'nt any darker than any other RPG. Not to mention its rated E for everyone. The point of an RPG is to eliminate evil and restore, do good to the nation. How is Kingdom Hearts any different than most other games? It's really not... Plus it has lovable Disney characters, morals... too dark my backside, take it you did'nt like the game...

Woman Very HappyWOW so much info. my sons favorite movie is Nightmare Before Christmas,he has a mom who can see beauty in the strange and unusual,and i think he could handle dark,as long as there isnt any sexuality,crude humor,or substance abuse!one of the reasons  i am encouraging the RPGs(other than my love for them)is the reading and problem solving.and i agree that most of the story lines are about good triumphing over evil,morality and integrity. again,i am so glad i asked,i got some great feedback!!!Woman Very Happy
