>>43554229>etrian oddsey stops you from playing the game to have cutscenes all the fucking time, are you kidding? you can't even go through the dungeons without some shit coming up that you literally cant see coming to talk at you at length
This only really happens in the latter ones and the Untold remakes, which are more story heavy and beginner friendly, and suffer for it. Unless you're being a retard and comparing 5 second text boxes from quests to this, any cutscenes in EO are extremely minimal.>and every game always has some crazy story twist that takes over the plot in the second half.
This is just a retarded comparison that lacks to understand the difference between plot and story, and execution of it. EO's story is largely delivered by worldbuilding and optional NPC dialogue. Even the fucking Tokyo twist isn't even acknowledged by the game when it's revealed and is treated like any other game.>>43554236
If you genuinely think comparing western RPGs, like Daggerfall, Morrowind, or Fallout to Pokemon Black/White is remotely reasonable or that their methods of story telling are comparable at all, I don't know what to tell you. Please go back to Call of Duty or Fortnite.
