How far down ryuji's link did you get? He grows up a little but I admit he was one of my least faves, a bruiser in combat so I brought him in at times but I preferred makoto in that role.
I'm not saying the game is without criticism but I think you make some good points that this is a great game even for the non super jrpg weebs. I could have played another hundred hours. If this has been as long and content filled at the witcher I'd have been fine, but the plot as it was was def time to wrap up.
