    You know, for a light-hearted game with funny quirky characters and witty dialogues, the Phoenix Wright series is a bit too much Grave of the Fireflies featuring Die Hakkenden featuring Les Miserables with a little extra suffering on the side. If you're a main or supporting character in one of the games, you're lucky to make it to the end of the chapter alive. However...
    Spoilers may wary

    In any case, come on. Yeah, yeah, it's a game that revolves around murder, but this is like Melrose Place only with murder instead of sex.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I do wonder why Phoenix only takes murder cases. Grisly sort of fellow, isn't he?

    Easier said than done... but it's kinda like Cabot Cove Fever.

    A small rural town in Maine that is murder capital of the USA, and just knowing Jessica Fletcher will mean your gonna murder someone, be falsely accused of murder by a overzealous but short sighted detective or worse your gonna die. Seriously, I'm surprised that woman got invited anywhere. You wouldn't invite her for Christmas.

    However in PW, your sister can be murdered, you accused of the murder, then later when you get off, your aunt tries to frame you for murder again, then just when everything seems to have calmed down your mother, who abandoned you when you were young, dies at what seems like your hand, only you didn't know it was your mother because that bitch didn't even bother to acknowledge you, no "my how well you've grown", only to find out that she was killed by the prosecuter who was your dead sisters lover before he fell into a coma, because he was poisoned by a evil woman who is now dead but being channeled spiritually to take revenge on you and your boss. Have I missed anything?

    I would have done Apollo, but just trying to put that bastard storyline into words gives me a headache.

    Maybe he is implying that is the concept of Phoenix Wright games are a bit on the dark side, I guess. [​IMG]

    Yes, I think I understand what the OP means.. it's a very strange series, extremely exaggerated. But I love it.

    Exactly.

    Now, I know it's a courtroom game revolving around murders most horrid. And I know that the same characters will keep popping up all the time because they are popular. But that means that popular and/or regular characters will keep running into bloody murder, over and over again. I mean, CSI is all about murder, but the victims and killers involved are usually just some random passerby, rarely the main characters.

    And the next game in the series better turn this practice around, the main characters are running out of relatives [​IMG]

    Well, it won't be interesting if not about murder [​IMG]

    I mean, it won't be good if all Phoenix do is defending thieves (other than thievery and murder, what else will do? Sexual abuse? yeah, right...)

    Also, Apollo Justice features a new set of charaters, which means he might get lots of relatives to be killed [​IMG]

    I know, I know, but can't it be murder of random people in the street for a change? I mean, those happen too, you know. Not every brutal slaying in town has to be connected to the same five or six people, does it? [​IMG]

    I think PW should take a new direction.

    Maybe the next game could be all about tax law.

    Man, if that was the case I'd be playing non-stop.

    true, true [​IMG]

    well, at least it keeps the story interesting enough to spawn sequels [​IMG]

    P.S. : I hope we can have a normal yay smiley without the ds or gba or psp inserted, it's hard to say "yay!" but with those systems on it, kinda makes it not the way I'm saying..... [​IMG]
