    The characters' names spelling out ENTERBRAIN blew my mind. I have NEVER noticed that!

    I just want to say thank you, Echo. The only tutorials I've used is yours. I'm making an RPG now thanks to you. Maybe someday I will have a demo to send to you so that you can pick it apart and tell me which parts suck :). Keep up the great work, Echo!

    The best feature in VX, Ace, and MV is Yanfly.

    One of my favorite RPG makers was ... RPG Maker ... on the original Playstation. I must have put a hundred hours into the game just screwing around.

    In a technical sense... MV has been downgraded... but in doing so its actually benefits users. The new way they handle events and map sizes forces people not to make overly large maps (so break them up in more refined segments) and forces people to learn how to event more efficiently. MV is also still early in its life cycle... and has some insane plans to optimize it further with the complete change of its graphics library / sound system... and so on.

    Tho , I must say... XP tileset and map creations really is gorgeous compared to MV :3

    Interesting, I also thought MV was just clone. But it is actually waaaaaaaay better than VX.

    I barely got into RPG Maker with VX Ace, only to find a thing called MV existed, so I bought VXA for nothing. Tried convincing myself it was good enough but eventually made the switch to MV and am I glad I did. The layering is a dealbreaker alone.

    My fav is XP. It was my first one and has the most sentimental value.

    I've only used VX Ace and while mapping is my favorite part I do admit that it is a bit annoying to have to constantly switch to another graphic to make something such as trees overlapping trees (otherwise it looks so awful). The idea of a auto-layering system in MV sounds amazing.

    RPG Maker MV is definitely my favorite. It has a lot of really easy to use features that let you just jump in, default Side view is back, the layering is cool and easy to use, I've spent a rather long amount of hours using it compared to the others.

    Thank you so much for making this, I'm thinking about getting an RPG Maker game for the first time and this is super helpful :)

    yeah, I noticed having difficulties making a map in mv. It just feels very limited. But keep up the good work, Echo. Love the vids, especially your godsend tutorials

    I love your voice! Also, great video! I just purchased XP and VX ACE. I'm using VX ACE currently on a design, but now I really wanna go back and try XP! Thanks for a wonderful video!

    I spent my childhood mostly on RM2003, moved on to XP, skipped VX totally, and now back on MV :D

    I want to get one of them, but I don't know what to get.

    The only RPGMaker I've used is MV and I really like it, yes it can be a pain in the ass some times but once I get it to work it works well.

    i appreciate your opinions on the engines, personally i am a novice at RPG creation, but that doesnt stop me from loving the community and the creations that spawn from them, hopefully i can offer my own creations one day on MV.
