Could we start asking LESS jump first ? :P
I'm all in for it.
Situation : the party is on the left-hand side of a bridge. There's a gap in the middle. They want to go on the right-hand side.
Tabletop roleplayers : "we go on the other side".
Original Final Fantasy 7 : I bring the character to the gap, jump happens automatically.
Platform game : I have to press jump (+direction of where I jump).
The current system feels too Platformey, in my view.
And as I argued elsewhere, the fun brought by the jump (with the spells Jump and Feather Fall in particular) is more than counter-balanced by the tediousness it brings. The net result at the moment is that jump has a negative impact on the gameplay.
