  1. I really prefer 2d rpg's to 3d rpgs. I have a lot of reasons for this.

     

    2d is easier to code and so there's less bugs and or crashing, and there's also much less processing power required to make the game function, which means the game can run on several computer systems, even those without graphics cards.

    This also makes it so that its easier to create more content. Isometric 2d is also easier to make tactical and strategic. Like bioware's infinity engine games were all very strategic and you had to consider a lot of things when taking on opponents, whereas dragon age, the *spiritual* successor to baldurs gate (hahaha?) has more tactics than most rpgs these days and yet the amount of skills and spells you could get in the game is an insult to baldurs gate players imo.

    Take a 2d castlevania versus a 3d castlevania. The sheer amount of content in something like castlevania symphony of the night is mindbogglingly much compared to ANY 3d castlevania game, and I can imagine that the funding behind the 3d castlevania games is probably so much bigger. There's a reason platforming died.

     

    Consider now something like diablo 3... It has to be bigger than diablo 2 in scope, why do you think it has had a development time of 11 years now and is still not released yet...? - Blizzard is trying to make a 3d isometric hack and slash rpg bigger and better than a 2d isometric hack and slash rpg, and thats no small feat!

     

    Considering the insults bioware keeps throwing at me with dragon age 2, boring mmo, mass effect - yes I know the game has really good storytelling but I'm really at heart an rts/platforming/rpg gamer, and when things compine elements from these franchises then I am happy... And considering how all modern games are fps/hybrids of somekind and considering how much I dont like fps. It doesnt make me all that happy to see more mass effect games. Fallout new vegas was amazing though. Which has to do with soooo many choices you had just like in the original fallout games. Do you make a stealthy dude, do you make a conversationalist? or do you make some brutal fighter which is able to destroy the world?!?!? And all of my choices seem to reflect everything in the world, and that imo is much better than linear storytelling which mass effect, dragon age, or whatever would shove down my throat.

     

    These days the games I play the most are either indie titles, obsidian titles due to superb dialogue, or replaying old classics, so I would definately back you with, well I can pledge you 50 dollars now for whatever you make to make an original IP. Here's hoping that my dreams come true and yours aswell.
