6 hours in and just unlocked class switching and...I don't think this is for me.

The story seems great (so far), the graphics are good, the voice acting is fine to good, the music is a solid B+ at least but...

There are so many systems (collecting, turn-ins, arts, skills, classes, roles) and I find that I do not care about a single one.

I also don't enjoy the combat at all. It's either too boring to hold my interest or is too chaotic for me to have a chance to influence everything before a wipe.

I think I'm going to call it and move on to something else.

I've been grazing at Xenoblade Chronicles 3 a bit for several weeks now, but haven't made it very far into it.

So far, the story and presentation are phenomenal, but the gameplay is a little boring.

I'm going to give it a bit to open up (which I think, based on some podcasts I've heard, is going to be when I "free the first colony") and then decide if I keep playing it or just find some YouTube videos.
