I finally tried a demo of one of the Etrian Odyssey games. I found mapping kind of annoying and painful. Like, I just want to move and on and experience the story, but nooo, I've gotta map stuff.
What happens if I just don't map a floor? Will the game tell me to go back and map?
I have to admit, it was kind of intriguing, but the mapping kind of got to me.
The game won't make you map the floors. But it will be very difficult to play without doing so.
This is a series in the vein of original bards tale and might and magic where mapping was done on paper while playing. There are warp tiles and puzzles that will make the game near impossible if you haven't mapped certain attributes.
