Ahem. How long does time have to pass until I can say the final boss of Felghana's name in it's full lolzy glory? Granted, the second-to-last boss is more of a spoiler than the BIG BAD, but even so!
It's very clunky referring to him by his placement in game, and after a certain point in the game do you expect to fight him. Thing is, it's a spoiler because you go into the game thinking certain other people are your villains. The plot twists make calling the final boss by name slightly spoilerish, although there's worse that can be done.
It's like how everyone at least knows you fight Dark Fact at the end of Ys I, but I'd never fully divulge the name of the final boss of Ys II. Heck, I won't even call his top mooks by name. I simply would call them "Boobs" and "Dementor", and hope people that have played the game understand who I'm talking about. Although, "Dementor" was definitely more important.
And, heck! In a way, doesn't playing Ys 7 first mess up Ys VI in regards to Geis and his character development? I mean, I must admit, I thought it was awesome that Geis appeared to already finished his character arc, but at the same time, I felt a little spoilered about his role in Ys VI.
What do you consider spoilers? Have you been spoiled already and want to rant about it here? And how long do you think it should be until the spoilers become less fresh, and it's more acceptable to talk about them?
Let's discuss! Or else... YOU SHALL BE LIKE ASH- never mind. I think you get my point.
