I enjoyed the Laxius Power Trilogy a lot. The Laxius Power series were some of the very first RPG's I played and of course the graphics have come a long way for sure. The content,story, quests and loads of secrets and fun places to discover were some of the best in the business. I have played probably close to a hundred RPG games but they do not have the same depth and involvement that the Laxius Power series had. I easily played close to a hundred hours on each release which is hard to come for a majority of RPG's. I like RPG's that take a while to really discover everything that the game developers have in store for you.
When I play an RPG and I discover new areas to explore and get sidetracked from the main quest to me that is what I enjoy most. Sometimes sidequests for me are quests in their own right and sometimes I spend hours fullfilling these quests forgetting what I was suppose to do for the main quest. That is a successful RPG for sure.
For me as a game player I want to find everything and discover all secrets and goodies that one could find. To me that is what an RPG are all about.
