What's The One Game You'd Buy Any Platform To Play?
Usually, one weighs a great many factors when deciding to purchase a new game console.
But is there one game that, if it released only for a particular platform, would make you buy that platform instantly? With no questions asked and nothing more to consider?
I suppose I might say a true sequel to my favorite game of all time, Final Fantasy Tactics 2. But that would probably come to the Vita and I've already got that. So I guess my answer would probably be Lost Odyssey 2. If they ever made a sequel to that RPG, which I still say is the last great traditional RPG, I'd buy whatever it was on. The first was exclusive to the Xbox 360; if the sequel was exclusive to the Xbox One, I'd buy it.
Of course, there are other alternatives. I miss Suikoden so much, and I also want to see the return of Jet Moto. But Lost Odyssey is just one of those games that sticks with you, especially when all other RPGs are going in a direction you don't like. I remember the stellar writing of the dream sequences, which were obviously done by a professional. I remember the fantastic turn-based combat, which was all sorts of dynamic and diverse. I remember the excellent setting and cool characters. There was just so much more that could've been done; if a developer ever did it and did it right, I'd buy it immediately.
What about you?
