Thought I should give the series a chance after hearing nothing but praise for these games over the last few years; I understand why so many people love them, but yeah, not for me! The weirdness is not my kind of weird, and the seriousness isn't my kind of serious. Don't love combo based combat, kind of hate non-expressive roleplaying RPG mechanics, and the length of put down the controller cutscenes just kind of had me at an arm's length. Maybe it's great later on, but I know what isn't gonna go down smooth these days.
