I’ll be the first to admit that this project has turned me into a very jaded gamer, with a very specific (asinine?) set of standards that dictates what is and is not worth my precious time. As much as I want to love Grandia, it’s really just not doing it for me. I keep pressing forward and despite my eyes feeling like they’re going to roll right out of my head at times I grin and bear it.
At the very least, I’ve finally stumbled onto something that vaguely resembles the possibility of turning into a more meaningful story, and that’s enough to assure I’ll keep playing, for now anyway.
