The Purple Parade is marching in full stride to the beat of that 'other' drum we all hear, but generally ignore.

QuoteI personally find this to be one of the best classic RPG's ever. Amazing soundtrack, new (for the time) visuals that have aged better than most. It takes every RPG cliche and trope and subverts it, takes it apart, and then rebuilds it.
QuoteViginia's a female lead with a "hope and teamwork will win the day" attitude. Her philosophy, faith in her friends, and trust in everyone including Janus is shown to be foolish. As the game goes on these aspects are picked apart and she see what happens when you're naive enough to apply videogame morals in a truly harsh world. She almost gets her team killed, Janus betrays her (obviously) Maya calls her out.Eventually she matures her ideals and goals, not to mention she's a female lead who isn't dressed like a stripper, and there's no romantic sub plot.
QuoteClyde's by far my favorite to see, here's a happily married 30 year old bookwork in a JRPG. As the game progresses he honestly worries he's getting in over his head, worried that he'll die and not be their for his wife/daughter. This is your cold sniper, and reading the WA2 story to his daughter is adorable, and awesome.
QuoteSigfried comes back from 1 (maybe) to fulfill his goal, obviously things don't go as planned, because through the dreams of powerful people Beatrice sets up her ability to break free. It's implied in 1 that Sigfried is actually what became of Earthlings during the war with deamons.
QuoteIt's been a long time since I played the first game, but the fact that the series is stated to all take place on the same world at different parts of its history.
QuoteThe name (of the world) is now also Filgaia. Through each of the series, Filgaia has become a different world in each. What they have in common is about the name of the items and monsters. The story of the series is independent in all.
