Yes. I'd rather play an optional minigame if it comes with rare item, or money prize.

well, what if for story reasons its mandatory the first time you encounter it BUT very very easy? That way you can be introduced to it, and it likely wont hold you up!

I think I do get your point though! Its stupid to have a mini game baring progress that requires a high amount of skill.

Agreed. Never cared much for RPG minigames. Always irritated me how FF9 forced you to play the card game at one point and FF10 forced you to play blitzball once (if that's what it was called).

Fortunately it seems like most modern RPGs make the minigames optional or don't have any at all.

@jkweath - GAWD! I hated the blitzball one! And in ff10-2 that sphere grid tetra master like game. HATE!

The thing is, in FF9 and FFX those you could lose and the game would go on. I'm talking about mini-games that you have to win to progress the plot.

@jkweath : World of Final Fantasy. 5 mini-games you *must* beat to continue the story at one point. No way to skip them. So it still happens with some more current games.

I was going to say Tomba 2 but I don't remember if there was a minigame, except to play with the 3 girls in the cursed winter village.

I have a mini-game, but It's pretty easy and no matter what, the game goes on regardless of how you do. But I do have the option of redoing it, if the person wants to. The prizes are pretty good.

Ugh....When you spend hours doing something and then end up scrapping the idea >.<
Random joke of the day: This morning a man wearing a face mask robbed a supermarket in the town center. So far the police has arrested 240 suspects.
Hosting competitions using your game is always so nerve wracking!!!
Social distancing is great, apart from trying to work from home while the guy up the road now has ample time and apparently the only way to fill it is to ride his dirt bike up and down our street all day :(
