You go from place to place on foot, the entire journey is outlined before you begin so you're always aware of where you are going next. You can literally make your way from besaid to Zanarkand on foot using ferries and shit.
Characters slowly reveal themselves to you over the course of the game giving you a sense of bonding with them during your travels
all the amazing sights along the way and the general cozy feeling of Spira
The game is literally supposed to be about people going on a Journey to what is basically the end of the planet.

So? You're talking as if there are no other games that do that, and that there's no way for those games to do it better than FFX.
>>
>>261967647

Because it is a journey, you can't just go back on to previous places whenever you want. You feel like you're always constantly moving towards your goal which is to travel to the other side of the world. Even though it is rather linear all the areas are extremely unique and memorable.

When I started up Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright the title music alone made me feel like it would be the adventure of a lifetime. It really was, I feel glad now I ignored importfags and europoors that said it was trash.

As for games that DO send you on a epic journey, Okami, every Zelda I played, Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits and FF games do the whole "grand adventure" think really well.

Gravity Rush was more limited in setting than entire continents, but boy was it a ride, didn't expect it when I started playing it.

Yeah now that i think about it, the original had a much bigger sense of adventure because no one knew what the fuck was going on. In KH2 there was a set goal and you revisited familial places. In KH you were a kid who lost his home and friends and now you have a massive key.

They just happen to be my personal favorites, even if they arent technically the best.
I think Black's story does the best of making you feel vital to the story.Youre on an epic quest to stop Team Plasma from severing the bond between human and Pokemon forever.It's a lot more epic than "youre some ten year old who ended up saving the world somehow i guess"
And I liked how Skyward Sword's narrative played up the whole"Chosen Hero of the Goddess" thing, even if the gameplay made you feel more like"Chosen Errand Boy of the Goddess"

Exactly! back then when I wasnt a soul less fuck I remember playing destiny island and being absolutely fucking HYPE for the mysteries and new places that lie ahead of me.

No one in my friend group knew what the hell traverse town was or what the hell Sora was doing there and the places that game took you along the way were fresh and out of the blue.

Like flying through space Into a SPACE WHALE!! Fighting cloud AND hercules in the arena! Sliding down jungle logs! Hanging with jack skeleton in Halloween town.

all summed up with a moderatrly serious/somber conclusion.

Dragonquest 8 has the fucking best world map for a first play, you feel like you're exploring a really fantastic world.

On replays you can't capture the sense of adventure of the first play and the world can kinda feel quaint and smallish, but I mean I can't dock off points for that. It absolutely is designed to make the most of its world, and that first playthrough is still magical. And I wasn't a kid when I played it, I was like 20.

Are you fucking high that the Crystarium and Sphere Grid were the same thing to you? Yes, the Sphere Grid wasn't quite as free as it looked, but it wasn't just one single linear progression. My first play through, I dunno what the fuck happened to Tidus but he ended up somewhere else entirely and never learned any of the Time Mage crap he's supposed to.

Try doing that in FFXIII.
>>
Believe it or not, the Metro series really made me feel like I was going on an adventure. Something about the first game where you start out as just some headstrong kid wanting to save his home and traveling into fucking hell to get it done. It was really appealing to me. The second one was great as well, I just liked all the detail put into the environments and how it was a linear game, but because of the setting (metro tunnels) it still felt like you were exploring.
>>
>>261973463
>Same thing
The crystarium was just another corridor until later on the game where everyone gets all the jobs, but that was just pointless since if someone's been a mage for the whole game, you not going to start putting making them physical at that point in the game. The sphere grid at least gave you the illusion of choice, even though if you didn't just follow the path you were put on for that character you'd be fucked.
