Mega Man Battle Network 4: Red Sun
Look! Plot! The gameplay is finally becoming complex enough to be interesting, and any localization issues are far less obstrusive than before.

Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade
A good expansion that adds a welcome amount of variety to the game. Some of the single-player scenarios seem unreasonably difficult, though.

It's one of those things that you usually either grew up with or can't comprehend; I'm somewhere in the middle, as fucking usual.
Fanboy: Final Fantasy 7 is the best!
Antifanboy: Final Fantasy 7 is garbage!
Me: Final Fantasy 7 is pretty good; it's not a masterpiece, but I like it just fine.

Even politically, I'm a moderate, and religiously, I'm agnostic; I'm just doomed to tread the middle ground for the remainder of my damned existence. King's Quest 6 was my gateway drug; I played it in the basement of my friends' house, and it blew my damn mind, so I got the collection, and dragged myself through the first, with 6 as my motivation. You're right that the old ones aren't the only ones with moon logic (that FUCKING pizza puzzle in Harvey's New Eyes is one that I STILL don't understand, even having seen the solution), but the newer ones have less of a proclivity toward punishing you for fucking up by throwing an unwinnable scenario, so I feel more free to experiment with different styles of bullshit logic. It's like Devil May Cry 3: there's Clickmaster Style, Combineslinger Style, Trickster Style (no need to change that one), and Royal Pain in the Ass Style. I bitch, but I love the genre as a whole.

Though that's not the only instance in which I've seen a text parser acknowledge my filthy mouth, that's the first I've seen where it encourages it. I always remember Hugo's House of Horrors, which took any command with fuck in it, and responded "Same to you, loser!" Of course, it didn't catch them all, which often led to unintentional hilarity; "GO TO HELL" was answered with the unintentionally biting "Try walking there." Touché, Game; touché. Sounds like you did the opposite, though. We do that here, sometimes, too; every once in a while, my lady lets fly something like "Son of a biscuit!" I adopt the voice of the boy with Tourette's Syndrome on South Park, instead saying, "GOSHDARNIT SHYOOOOT!" She always tries to pretend to be mad. Tries.

I did like the text parser in Scribblenauts, but the physics engine was a constant adversary of mine, so I never got all that far. I'm not all that creative, either; I work best when there's some sort of groundwork already laid. I'm great with sound editing, but I'm no composer. I'm great with palette swapping, but I'm no artist. I think Scribblenauts gave me too many options for my brain to process.

Sorry for the absurd late reply (didn’t get notified) but I really enjoyed it! Heard good things about it and found it to be the most content-packed Mega Man to date, if a bit repetitive. Really enjoyed Old Style mode a lot too. Something I’ll definitely try to truly 100% in the future, even though some characters are hell to play as like Oil Man

I tried to like it... but everything it does basically tells canon to F off. I don’t get why CBS is doing something so polarizing... I totally get doing the Picard as an admiral series they are working on but the Star Trek name should NOT be put on Discovery. It’s just not Trek. It’s just spitting in the face of all the treks before it... not a bad sci fi show but not a Star Trek.
No matter where you go, there you are.
