Sweet, simple, and easy-to-use. No scripting knowledge required, even if you do want to customize a few things, since you can usually just type "rpg maker vx ace script" into google and you can find hundreds of scripts made by other people. Allows for heaps of customization, including music, sprites, battlers, battlebacks, tilesets, faces/busts etc. You can make your own skills, but if you're like me and can't find the patience to make 100+ skills, you can use the program's presets, alter them, add to them, rename them etc.
Heaps of resources, but you can import more from DLC packs, or certain websites.
For advanced users, there's the script editor (if you have any idea how to make scripts using Ruby) and you can also learn parallax mapping which looks really snazzy but is also really fiddly.
I definitely reccomend this program, especially for those with no idea how to make games. It's so simple and easy, that I started off with no idea how to even come CLOSE to making a game, and now I'm halfway through one!
Best of all, I've found it to be pretty much bug free, so I can spend more time on making games than pulling my hair out!
Definitely a program to buy, though, considering it's price, you might want to wait for it to be on sale first - that way you can get RPG Maker AND some of the DLC packs to kickstart you up.
Have fun everyone!
