>Celceta being shit is just a larger part of Falcom no longer knowing how to make a decent combat system anymore.
It's shit because the culture around remakes shifted to an unmitigated extreme around that time and because the hardware was pushed as the main draw for why you should buy games, instead of the other way around. Remember the Vita came out the same gen as the 3DS, the flagship consoles when it came to "the console exists, therefore you HAVE to buy it and wait for its games" that PS4 and XseX did a thousand times worse. I can't really fault Falcom entirely for their decisions given what has actually brought them money but you can easily see the gradual turn from passion projects and tight knit company with nice ideas to corporate whores due to the current climate surrounding vidya companies. At least they haven't completed the package by sucking Tencent's cock to my knowledge at least, I won't be able to handle it if they do or did
The only way for a lot of those older vidya studios, especially some of the cornerstone studios that didn't make it as big as Ninty, Sega, SE, Namco etc, to get better and go back to how good they were is for either the whole fucking system to collapse and stop being mainstream or for these studios to take a more laid-back approach and develop exclusively for PC and doujin markets again. By cutting ties with the normalniggers and the investors they hang out with, a lot of the problems are fixed.
And to go back to Celceta, even if let's say, they abandoned the party mechanic entirely and they went with a Felghana / Origins style of gameplay, it would still be cancer because it has a myriad other problems that arise from a demand in a market that invaded their turf in the first place. Just ask the average normalnigger what Ys game they've played on PC whenever Steam has a sale and they always default to Ys 8, Celceta and 9 and maybe Ys Origins because some jewtuber meme or something and they never touched it. All the while, the previous Ys games go completely untouched and they constantly screech about more "quality Ys games" while some masterpiece like Xanadu Next goes unnoticed.
To bring it back to Atlus and Strange Journey since I've been on a small JRPG high this few weeks, when Strange Journey came out, everyone fucking hated it in the west and meme'd it to be so hard it kills you IRL and shit, having absolutely shit endings try and guess if the endings were actually dogshit or if the normalfags were braindead retards
so when Redux came out, the difficulty dropped, you could be super overpowered from early game, the game added waifus, new endings that the normalfags loved and more "accessible" options regarding the dungeon crawling. Simply because they bought a game that was a "side series to Persona".
<tl;dr : Remove normalniggers from gaming, remove investorshit and Tencent and we can have good (Ys) games again.
