I don't hate FFVII, I'm just really ambivalent towards it. Everyone loves it, so I won't.
But to stay on topic, Legend of Dragoon is probably my personal worst. I bet there are people here who remember it fondly, but for me it straddled the line between being laughably bad and just plain awful. Pretty cutscenes though.
Are you kidding? Please tell me that's sarcasm. Legend of the Dragoon was one of the best RPGs ever. What is there not to like about it? I've never heard anything negative about the game until now so I'm pretty astonished.
...I guess there's a first time for everything.
I've never played the game, but to defend [her, apologies!] a bit, I've heard lots about the game, both good and bad. Some love it, some like it but acknowledge that the pacing could be better, and some loathe it. So... I'm sorry you're astonished. I like some games that are often considered bad, like Legend of Mana.
Secret of Mana has high popularity or atleast it wasn't considered as bad. I've never heard any negativity pointed towards it. By far, it's probably one of the best RPGs in the gaming industry.
Are you by any chance referring to Seiken Densetsu 3? Because that wasn't as popular and wasn't as liked as SoM.
It's personal preference but in my opinion Legend of the Dragoon was a staple game for the PS1 and probably one of the best RPGs for it. I think it blows FF7 out of the water. It was way more innovative and just overall a bigger and better game. It had it's flaws but it had a good well-developed storyline that was engaging and the Dragoon transformations were a nice feature.
The only thing I was disappointed about was the lack of a real world map like they are setup in Final Fantasy, it was boring moving in a straight line to travel to your destination. I like to traverse and explore around the continents and fiddle around a bit. It felt really linear because of that and it didn't have much in a way of secret dungeons/bosses but I personally enjoyed it and thought it was fun.
I wish there was a remake or a LotD 2 but that's doubtful.
