Part of the fun of games is the shared experience you have with other players, even for single player games. There are certain tasks in games that earn serious nerd cred. When you bake cheating into a game, it further removes the achievement of the time investment/effort because you could have just saved yourself all of the trouble of legitimately accomplishing them and no one would know the difference.

So if you patch out RNG manipulation, you are essentially perfecting the intended game experience.

Now whether FF12's RNG should be altogether preserved in its ridiculous entirety, that's another topic.
But no one baked cheating into the game because thats not the developers intended way of playing. they probably dont even know the existence of the exploits. you chose to break the game by your own volition.

Ugh. I hate attitudes like this so much. Single player games can be whatever they want to be, and there's no reason to remove some exploits that people use and enjoy because it takes away from some imagined achievement. You don't want to "cheat", don't cheat. It's that simple.

Yeah, my ideal change (other than 2 jobs) would be to remove the RNG entirely. Put the little pots and chests with not much in them where they are, as it provides a bit of flavor. But the ones that can/should contain important items (like the badass sword post-Demon Wall) should always contain that item.
Guess which chest doesn't exist in IZJS?

But what about my bragging rights?!
