Kouta Koikawa : (05 September 2017 - 01:26 PM) I remember how this forum used to be active. That was many years ago. We need a new game to make the forum active again.
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:29 AM) How about Fatal Frame Card Game?
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:35 AM) Couldn't find anything about it here

Eisenalex : (11 September 2017 - 10:39 PM) There's a Nintendo Direct coming.
Eisenalex : (11 September 2017 - 10:39 PM) I'm not holding my breath for it but a teaser for a new FF would be nice.
midwinter : (12 September 2017 - 08:39 PM) It would
midwinter : (12 September 2017 - 08:39 PM) It's happening pretty late at night here, so I doubt I'll stay up and watch it, but I'd be happy to wake up to news
Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 08:54 AM) Same for me. At least KT once stated that they have a little something in the works for the Switch and I doubt it'll only be FE: Warriors.
Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 10:57 PM) Now that was kinda disappointing. Didn't expect Doom and Wolfenstein. As expected, no FF news, unfortunately. I'm surprised that we didn't get a Smash 4 port announced or any news on Travis Strikes Back.
GreekShadow : (24 September 2017 - 01:19 PM) Did I loose something?Or TGS was too poor this year?Almost nothing new was announced for anything?

Who was more qualified to be the protagonist?

I don't know how much more there is to add to the previous conversation, but I also felt Misaki more qualitfied to be the main protagonist. Ruka's character always felt kind of plain to me, and Misaki at least had a connection with the rest of the series, being an Asou, and also the drive to find out what was going on. I think Misaki's personality and background draw people to her more than they are drawn to Ruka. P: But obviously, since Ruka was chosen as the main protagonist we learn more about her and her background. It would have been interesting to see how it would have played out had they chosen Misaki as the main protagonist.

Misaki was a very dynamic character and had a great past that tied to the antagonist, but Ruka [as boring as she was] had the back story that was better fitted to be the main protagonist. I really wished they gave her more of a personality. Hell, Madoka had more personality. 

 

I'm sure they couldve tweeked the story so that Misaki was forced to fight Sakuya to break the curse despite being so close to her and had this glorious bitter-sweet ending and just killed off Ruka and I probably wouldve liked the game a lot more

Interesting Opinions by the way

If Misaki was main character that would be very impressive and cool!!

I think both characters are equally important to the story because without both of them then the spirits there would have never been put to rest (as Sakuya needed the other part of her soul that was trapped in Miya along with a portion of Misaki's soul before she could perform the Ceremony of Passage again to escape from the Island and cause the whole world to bloom which is why she called Misaki back), and without Ruka there to stop her Sakuya would have accomplished that and the whole world would have perished.  Misaki may have had more of a connection to Sakuya but that doesn't really make her more qualified to be the main protagonist.  Both have interesting backstories and circumstances.

Misaki. For all the reasons people listed, plus she always felt like more of a leader. Ruka just seems like more of a follower.

 

Misaki and Madoka were the ones who returned to the island first. Then Ruka came trailing after them. Just seems like if Misaki and Madoka never went, then Ruka wouldn't have bothered.

Misaki is following Sakuya the entire game, leading Madoka to die in the process.  Ruka had her own reasons for returning but wanted to help her friends.  The latter fits as the protagonist a lot better, imo.

Eh... The only thing is, Misaki doesn't know it. I think her and Madoka returning to Rogetsu gave Ruka the push she needed to go back.

 

And it wasn't entirely Misaki's fault that Madoka was killed. She was distracted by her own fragmented memories, and when she came to her senses Misaki was gone.

Also it was Madoka's choice to go back to the island with Misaki.  Her notes state that she was worried Misaki had been "tricked" so she decided to go back to Rougetsu island with her.  Misaki never forced Madoka to go with her.

Misaki's more aware as time goes on, saying she can't resist Sakuya's pull before the stage.  I know Madoka's death isn't completely her fault, but in response to Misaki being a leader, she's a pretty bad one.  

 

Edit: never forced her, no, but Misaki's the reason she's there.  Madoka expressed plenty times she just wanted to leave but was told to keep quiet.

I disagree. When you're life is on the line, (as it clearly was) people are capable of doing things they wouldn't normally do. For example, running off to a deserted island and trying to remember your past...

Misaki went to the island because a girl who looked like her told her to.  You can interpret this as Sakuya's influence starting to take a hold of her.  Regaining her memories was a part of it, but like Ruka, she had that additional push to get out the door.

I, personally, don't see it that way. But everyone has their different ideas of what happens in the games. *shrug*
