RPG's in general have a distinctly unique way on manipulating space whereas mainly players act as a third person controller which determines the characters action and movements throughout the game. The player may experience some degrees of freedom in controlling their characters as they progress through the story line. Space in this game are in general huge and open with complex and detailed map types however it only allows you to proceed in certain routes which directly relates to the story itself or complete certain side quests along the way. Another important aspect of RPG's in general is the notion of leveling up your characters as you progressed through the game that you will need to do in order to beat various enemies which gets stronger along the story. Enemy encounters are done in maps as the character proceeds to the terrain basically you could choose to battle enemies or ignore it completely however this kind of actions will cause trouble when battling stronger enemies where you need more complex skills to defeat certain enemies and bosses.
Space also plays an important role when encountering enemies whereas you are dragged to a new screen uniquely costumized for battle and players command their characters to make a specific combination of attack in order to win such as melee attacking, healing magic, offensive magic, defensive abilities and staggering opponents, this requires the players to master the strategical battle aspect of the game and switch battle strategies constantly in order to win. Overall i chose this game because it is a unique and vibrant combination of use of space in stunning HD graphics, interesting plot and story line, strategic warfare and stunningly realistic characters with personalities making this game one of my favorite games. If youre looking for those features i mentioned above Final Fantasy 13 will leave you speechless here are some videos that illustrates my ideas of game play and graphics
