Top 3 Ace Attorney cases:
1° Rise from the Ashes
2° Farewell, My Turnabout
3° The Grand Turnabout
Phoenix taking down Gant with the evidence law is one of the best moments in the series.
I wish games had tough finales like this. Most of them now is "present obvious as fuck evidence you never ever used until this moment" like the yellow envelope in AJ or the moon earring in DD.
Hm. One gripe I have with the final case is that Phoenix's last trial should have been the fourth case like Mia's first one, it would have been an interesting parallel, and a decent set-up to Succession in general.
No Turnabout Samurai?
>Prove on the first day of the trial that your client is LITERALLY the only person on the scene who could NOT have committed the murder
>Still need to go on
My negro. That case alone redeemed DD for me.
Not gonna lie, Gant's breakdown legitimately caught me off-guard for a second.
>tension so high, I could feel it emantating from the speakers of my 3DS
>suddenly breaks into the most maniacal fit of laughter
>refuse to believe that this trial can go on any longer than it already has
>"yeah, I did it"
Separating the flashback case would have made it worse
One of the big problems (at least as far as I remember) with Turnabout Succession was its length and ending. Cutting it in half makes for an even shorter finale case while keeping its shitty, anti-climactic ending
...What about Lost Turnabout? Also, I didn't like some of the characters in Recipe For Turnabout too much, and two of them were literally key witnesses, like the old man, whom a whole trial day is spent on.
Lost Turnabout was retarded because that was the point.
It would have been a walk in the park for Phoenix because of the fucking obvious contradictions, so he had to be nerfed with the amnesia
Yeah, that's definitely a good one. For some reason, I thought for a second you were saying that Gant's fit of laughter had an actual "voice" to it or something like that coming from your 3DS. It definitely would have been odd to add voices to the original trilogy, in any case.
He means the final trial segment being just one testimony long and short overall.
>let me explain everything that happened
>that's bullshit. I'll go back to my cell. No evidence
>actually, jurist system
On that note, how do they justify the tutorial in DD? I haven't seen any of it except for the opening cutscene and Edgeworth's cutscene, do they have Athena be a new attorney and have trials explained to her?
5-1 tutorial was bullshit.
Athena fully went through 5-3 and Phoenix went through the DLC.
I mean, Mia was justified because her first time in courtroom her client killed himself and she got traumatized for a year.
Why do people not like Turnabout Samurai?
This is why I hate the first case taking place in the future and then the rest of the game minus the ending is all flashbacks.
Yamazaki did that shit in AAI too and it's the fucking worst AA game in my opinion.
Fuck sake, I-4 is a flashback within a fucking flashback.
I finished Justice for All for the first time about a month ago, and I swear to God I could write a fucking dissertation on how bad that case was. It brings down the entire game around it.
>Fuck sake, I-4 is a flashback within a fucking flashback.
Someday we'll have a flashback to a case which will also be a flashback to another case..which will then lead to yet another flashback.
Gumshoe is top tier husbando, my boyfriend looks like him and I must say that really worked in his favour when we first met. Sadly he's not a gamer but I've been trying to convince him to go to a Con with me in Cosplay...a man can dream

OBJECTIO! I can prove I'm having a conversation with another anon who has fine taste in fictional men who work in the japanese legal system herr forehead
A lot of AA characters deserve more spotlight in my opinion.
But yeah, Barnham got fucked super duper hard at the end. He was easily my top 10 in the series.
The Investigations games do this weird thing where they aren't as blatantly obvious about a tutorial like in the mainline games, but if you needed a reminder about something, they'd either have Edgeworth quickly go over it in his head, or have Gumshoe explain it only for Edgeworth to tell him he already knew that.
The Forgotten Turnabout was my favorite.
Blaise should have been THE final boss.
Gonna go the obvious route with this one but pretty much the final cases of each game
1-5 for trying new things while also just being a really great case with great characters
2-4's twist/reveal, followed by forcing the guy to admit his guilt out of fear for his life is just an incredible idea executed really well. Also having to pin the crime on someone you know it's innocent in order to stall and save Maya.
3-5 for being an amazing wrap up and tying together the previous cases into an incredibly satisfying finale for the trilogy. Plus playing as Edgeworth was pretty fun.
Honourable mentions go to 2-2, pretty much all of 3, 4-1, 4-2 for being pretty fun.
Turnabout Serenade would've been decent if they didn't recap the guy's dying message and the video of the song every 5 seconds.
The final case was just a really poor idea. They took a risk but it would have been a lot more satisfying if they made it an actual case. I also needed way more Kristoph.
I forgot to add 5-DLC. I hope we get Norma DePlume back in AA6. I also liked 5-5.
no, Dual Destinies is fucking fantastic and we had terrific threads about it until reactionary faggots started merely pretending it was trash
