Yahtzee on Narrative, Embodiment and AI

The World Ends With You.

A major thing that turns me off from JRPGs and a lot of games in general is when I don’t feel that I as a player am contributing anything to the story. All I seem to do is wheel the characters from one whingy, boring dialog to the next; events are driven by their actions, not mine, and all I am is little angry id who takes over for the combat, spending the rest of the time jumping up and down in the back of the main character’s mind, yanking on nerve endings, trying to make him stop acting like a pillock.
