Well, I'm done. Not entirely sure I get the ending, but I also didn't really pay much attention to be honest.

Alright, Bravely Default is definitely a good game. I enjoyed it. The job system was deep and very fun, and the world was interesting. But it has its problems. Namely the entire second half of the game. I just didn't like having to fight those bosses over and over again. At the very least they could've designed new bosses for each chapter if they weren't going to do anything else new. Not only was it repetitive, but most of my gameplay in chapters 5-8 was just grinding. I know this is a common complaint and I'm beating a dead horse, but those are my thoughts. The first half was really great. It had good pacing, and the bosses were a blast to fight the first time around.

I also just didn't really like the storytelling itself. It was definitely interesting, but something about it was just just unclear to me. But the main issue is that I don't really care to figure it out. The game doesn't really do a good job at motivating me to do that, partly because it just gets exhausting towards the end. I found myself playing to just beat the game rather than enjoy it, which is a shame.

The characters were alright. The main characters improved towards the end. I thought Tiz and Agnes were both bland at first and Ringabel annoying, but they grew on me. Still, they were very standard RPG teen protagonists. There aren't really any side characters that stand out to me, except for maybe Edea's dad. And I barely saw him, because every time I had to repeat a chapter I wouldn't have the motivation to do any of the side quests again. That's another problem. There's so much there, but it just wasn't presented well towards the end.

I know I'm being a bit harsh on the game. I actually really enjoyed it despite all the problems I had with it. I just hope the sequel works around those problems I had. It took me 52 hours, and I just don't think it's worth it if the game repeats itself like that. This is actually the exact problem I had with Persona 3, although to a lesser degree.
