When some jrpg fans said they tired youth protagonist, sword wielder, spiked hair and happy go lucky, I dont quite sure who are they refering to? not even FF characters fit this criteria, DQ and Chrono only have silent protagonist, maybe just tales characters?
I always told my DA fans how much I hate slot machines. They're fine in games as a risk-and-reward system. But when you're spending REAL MONEY in a Vegas casino to try and hit the jackpot (which very, very few people will), it can really hurt your budget. Gambling is a bad habit, and I don't like wasting my money on a slim chance. Go to Vegas for the experience, not the jackpot.
