I’m finally playing Final Fantasy, and I’m starting at the beginning. Luckily, the original games are rather easy to find on handhelds today, so I’m starting with FFI on PSP. I’m not very far: I’ve saved Princess Sarah and that’s about it. I have a Warrior, a Thief, a Red Mage, and a White Mage. I’ll probably get FFII on PSP as well, then switch over to DS for FFIII. I’ve never played any old turn based fighting games, so killed my party a couple times before I got the hang of it (and understood the importance of leveling up).
“It’s About Time” will be an account of games past that I am just now playing. I doubt there will be many as old as Final Fantasy.
