The lights are on
No new game plus feature is such a disappointment for me. That's what kept me playing through Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 (which screwed it up by not allowing you to change classes) repeatedly. Bioshock was another game that suffered from a lack of it. To this day I've only played through Bioshock once. With new game plus I probably would have gone back to it at least once by now.
It's been 15 years since Chrono Trigger made it famous, it's about *** time that every game featuring RPG elements is designed with it. It's such an easy design to implement and it increases the replayability of your game tenfold. Why isn't this industry standard?
