Final Fantasy: My life as a King. Anyone who's played it will likely say it's unique, but surely there is some sort of similar game out there? For those that have not played it, it's not a typical tycoon game at all. You actually play as a character, which you have to walk around your city in a 3rd person view at all times to build/interact/etc, and send your citizens on quests to eventually beat the game, level up your citizens, etc. That is the part of the game I'm wanting something similar to. A 3rd person game where you build a city/kingdom/town/whatever as you walk around it. This instantly rules out Simcity, Cities XL, Tropico, and any other game where it's just a straight up city builder sandbox. I found that Majesty lets you assign quests to your citizens in a very My Life as a King way, and I did enjoy that game a lot, but the fact it's not a third-person game where you control one character really kind of made me get bored, but it is by a long shot the closest game I've found so far. That's not good, as it's really not very similar. It can be for any system, all I ask is that it be a 3D game (not 3DS 3D, I just mean not sprite based). EDIT: I forgot to mention that the city building aspects of Dark Cloud 1 and 2 are indeed very similar to what I'm looking for, but they have a major problem: it's maybe 10% of the game at the most. The rest is just mediocre cliche action RPG. Some sort of a game that's comprised only of the building aspects of DK1 and 2 would work as well. EDIT 2: Minecraft would be pretty much what I'm looking for, but the problem with that game is that there is absolutely no point/objective to it. Like MLAAK, DK1 and 2, and Majesty games, I need some sort of major overall objective.
