I want to clarify that I’m not saying ALL rpg-maker games are bad. There are definitely ones that are able to make a creative use of the engine. Some even have stories good enough that they’re worth paying attention to. And I somewhat regret what I said before about not playing fetish games for the story because some games have really good and well thought out stories to go with them. That’s the whole reason visual novels exist.
Back to rpg-maker, the games I was really talking about were all the smaller games that pop up every day that have some generic lame story and do very little to make the games graphics stand out from other games. I know making a game can be hard but if your game is gonna be exactly the same as someone else’s why even make it? Some games feel like the creator made them just for the sake of saying they made a game.
Also I have played some bullshit and I just would like to say that it is definitely on the higher end of what rpg-maker games are capable of. It definitely had more than enough done to it to distinguish it from other games. If everyone who used rpg maker put that same amount of effort in it to make it original I wouldn’t be complaining. But unfortunately bad, unoriginal games are inevitable and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Again, this is just my opinion, so if you disagree with what I said, feel free to share your thoughts with me. I will always stay open minded to new opinions
