Anyone dreading Thanksgiving because of all the life questions you have to field from your family?
Nobody asks me anything during Thanksgiving. Nobody cares. Actually, this year, it's just going to be me and my parents. There's always been family drama in the background and the extended family didn't invite us this year (we always go to my aunt and uncle's house, where everyone else goes too).

So.

Yeah.

Thanksgiving this year is just going to be a bigger dinner, basically.

My family knows better than to ask me life questions because I give vague and often sarcastic responses. Especially when I'm drinking. Most of my family is sadly not that intelligent either. At least when it comes to common sense and the twenty-first century.

They're harmless enough. I've just been never one to hide how I feel towards someone. If I don't like you, I just won't give you any of my attention. Plus, I don't play the, "he said she said," game.

fortunately no since we've basically ostracized all of our extended family at this point

We have a busy Thanksgiving week, no thanks to this need for us to host the party so we're making most of the food every year.

It's fine because someone else hosts Christmas and New Years. But we sure have a lot of get togethers.

^ That's a bold claim, I need to see your JRPG credentials.

The characters don't appeal to me, especially Sylvando, and the rest seem generic.
I have yet to play Dragon Quest XI so I know nothing about it, but when it was first announced I kind of felt the same way. Judging solely by the character designs, nobody really struck out at me for some reason. I remember thinking, "Oh. Those are the main characters? Okay."
Yeah, the only thing I can compliment the cast of characters on is variety. Erik is the only one who looks cool though.

I think it helps that Chrono Trigger is relatively short and not especially difficult.

I could give you a mile-long list of recommendations once you finish CT.

Personally, I've been fighting a desire to replay Final Fantasy VII. I randomly had the urge to rewatch Advent Children the other day, and I bought the "On the Way to a Smile" novella yesterday.

I own FFVII on PC and I still haven't played through it...and even then, I might wait for its Switch release before really digging into it.

You know, the interesting thing about this is that CT is definitely not too difficult for those of us who are accustomed to JRPG's and their inner workings. But I loaned by copy of CT on DS to one of my 8th graders last year, and he couldn't make it past Magus because it was too hard. It was his first JRPG and he just couldn't wrap his head around what a good strategy was. I had always thought that CT was a great introduction to the genre, but maybe I'm wrong? Or maybe this kid was just too impatient for that style of gameplay.

I seem to recall that there's something objectively bad about the PC port of VII; it might have been the music tracks being lower quality?

I completely forgot that VII was coming to the Switch. Has a release date been announced for that?
