ANY GAMES AS GOOD AS THE WAY

Posts

Are there any games on here that's nearly as good the best game made to date: The Way?

Edit: Here are the things I liked about the way in order of importance and would hopefully look for as many of these qualities in another game:


- A deep intricate story (most important)
- The game was a huge tragedy
for everyone except Strata. Khloe's master screws another girl, Rhue's entire adventure was a lie and he loses his identity, Lyra having her whole family killed, the Landorin massacre, and a lot of main chars dying

- Being able to turn off all battles
- The soundtrack
- A love story
- The setting of being a wandering traveler

judging by the lack of response, apparently not!
Nope it's the best RPGMaker game. Sorry bud.
Maybe it'd be a good idea to let us know what you liked about the game. There's a bunch of amazing games on the site that match up to and/or overtake the quality of The Way, but maybe you want something that lets you turn off all battles or something that has a deep, intricate story, or maybe you want more plunge-like battles.

This. What did you like about the game? The story? The battle system?

One RPG classic that will surely get recommended eventually is A Blurred Line. That game has a great story, amazing dialogue, and a fun battle system. Check it out. It's hosted here. Only problem is that we've been waiting since 2002 for the sequel/finale to come out (Line's End). The developer, Lys, returns to the community every few years to let us know that it's still in production, but who knows if it'll ever actually come out.

How can you say it's the best game made to date if you haven't already played every other game in existence?
Like Dethmetal said, A Blurred Line is probably your best bet, though you might also like Final Fantasy: Endless Nova, and the Legion Saga series (the first one is kinda meh, but the second one is pretty rad).

Seconded on Endless Nova, although it's been a long time since I played it.

I actually think the first Legion Saga is pretty decent, but it's severely hampered by a painfully slow walking speed and high random encounter rate. At the time of its release, though, it was probably the best completed RM2K game out there.
Thanks for the recommendations guys. I've played a blurred line years ago and remember liking it. I'll have to check out the final fantasy endless nova and legion saga.

I've also updated the post with things I like about The Way so the thread has more detail of what made The Way so good in my opinion

I could just be biased because I played the second and third game originally, then went back and downloaded the first.

I was expecting a hype missing link that was going to tie the series together, whereas instead I just got a basic RTP adventure with a few interesting gimmicks. Not bad by any means but I was never as invested in Legion Saga 1 the same way I was with 2 and 3.

I'd also recommend Three the Hard Way, and Alter ALIA.

I haven't actually played the former and I have no idea what it's about, but I know it's one of those classic projects that everyone seems to love (I think there's a reference to it in the Way?) so you might like it. Alter ALIA is a really good anime inspired cyberpunk game, so if you liked A Blurred Line, check that out too.

EDIT: There's also Sunset Over Imdahl. It's another one of those games I never actually got around to playing but from what I know it's really well made, and might be worth looking into.
