A complex, detailed plot may not always be the best idea--in FFVII, it was too complex and was a drag on the game. That is not to say a complex plot is absolutely impermissible--it was done in FFVI (albeit, less complex than FFVII, but still very detailed and most importantly very effective).
I agree about Final Fantasy. VI was better than VII. Kefka was a lot more fun than Sephiroth, and there were too many story elements in VII that they didn't go into. I guess that's why they eventually made a movie and other game(s) for FFVII.

Yeah WellI have some problems with the plot myself like in x6 "Zero: I hid myself while I repaired myself) but the thing that I want the very most if for the series to tie together I mean just make ONE MORE Megaman game to tie it into X and END the x series and tie it to Zero for the love of all that is good tie them together.
I understand that Capcom wants to milk the Megaman series for all it's worth but if they don't want to only make one more game at least make a couple all of them moving more and mroe to the x series that'll work just as well.
Amen! That's what I meant when I said there's too little story development. They keep making new games without ever tying all the series together concretely. They shouldn't raise all these issues without seeing them through. I was so excited when I played MM7, but what happened? I thought that was going to be the start of some major developments.

All the talk about the X series. Remember, it's not the maveric hunters to blame, it's Colonel for being an idiot.
All games considered, the plot was kinda going down the drain, especially when they left MML unfinished.
I know Colonel was being an idiot because all reploids seem to overreact. Must be in their "DNA" (j/k). But when Colonel asked to meet with Zero at Memorial Hall it was Zero who struck first. Colonel didn't seem to want a fight. My problem with the Hunters is that they seem just as anxious to administer the death penalty to reploids as the reploids are to overreact. (Come to think of it, is there any other penalty for reploids besides death?) And that's not the only time when the Hunters have been overly harsh in their judgements and accusations against reploids.
As for the Legends series, I never enjoyed the gameplay as much as the old 2D style games, but the characters were a lot of fun and I hope to see a sequal. But they'll probably make a dozen more Battle Network games before they get started on MML3. Edited by Androcles on July 14, 2006 at 21:09:19.
