Ok, I take back what I said, that sounds weak. Who wants to just run around and do quests for the whole game!? That sounds terrible.

Skyrim, PSO, Dark Souls, and Monster Hunter, and pretty much any MMO ever? And some of these are the most loved and successful games of all time?

Sounds really terrible.

To be fair, shonen anime/manga is pretty varied.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Fist of the North Star are both shonen. :p Xenoblade wasn't as esoteric as the other Xeno games but I felt it still had a well-written story.

What do you mean by the story won't directly involve them and that your actions will affect what happens? Sounds awesome though.

It'll be like a western role playing game. You are the character, and you make your own choices that impact the game. The story won't be about them, their feelings, their personal goals, their family, their friends, or anything like that, but the NPCs will see them as a hero for fixing their problems.

For example, in Xenoblade, the story revolves around Shulk, his friends, and the people he meets. We learn about their lives and desires and fears. They are an integral part of the story.

Compare that with PSO. PSO is about the Pioneer 2 Colonial Ship, and you're just a hired hand who is able to navigate the alien world. Your character could be any of the available races or classes and it doesn't impact the story directly, but what you do specifically moves the story along (completing quests and whatnot). I expect X to be more like this.

That's what I hope to see anyway.

How in any way am i going to feel attached to the characters then? So your character is just a hollow tool to move the story along? that sounds like a terrible design choice. Why have any characters at all if that's the case?

Like I said, there's been plenty of well received games that follow the ideas I've stated. I don't think X is going to be like Xenoblade, as far as the format is concerned.

While I do enjoy Demons' Souls, MH, Western and MMORPGs, X better not be a MH-type game. It does sound really terrible.

Actually I expect it to have user-made characters, ala PSO or Dark Souls or Monster Hunter. The story and narrative won't involve them directly, but the actions they do will have an impact on what happens.

Well that would certifiably lose my sale

I just can't see that with Takahashi. Xenogears/saga/blade all have main protagonist that are heavily focused upon. Which imo is kinda needed when you have deep stories questioning the fabrics of humanity and the reasons of our existence and how we fight on and overcome.

But it might be because I've also never been a fan of silent main characters. Sure I understand the game creator wants me to feel and think like im the person im playing as... but honestly that's just not interesting to me. I don't feel like im interesting because im me 100% in real life. I play games to escape me. To explore someone else's actions or thoughts. So yeah im somewhat biased/against X having a hollow shell for a main character(s).

It won't be Xenoblade. It will be rated M. It will have violence. It will have gore. It will have booze. Lots and lots of booze. Oh and sex. Lots and lots of sex.

Oh, and lets not forget mechas.

Will the mechas be having sex and doing drugs?

Of course. Did you even have to ask? It should be obvious! This game will actually be called XXX!

It will be more crazy non-sense from the makers of Xenogears, Xenosaga and Xenoblade.
