My jRPG Hangover



I'm feeling tired and worn out, which is weird because it's not like I've going outside all that much.
I suppose it all started last month, when I decided to play the Dragon Quest IV DS remake. I can't really explain it, but from there I went on a rampage through possibly every unfinished jRPG I own. Or at least all the Final Fantasies.
So over the past two months that's:
-Dragon Quest IV DS
-Final Fantasy V Advance (A game so good it makes the Japanese orgasm, apparently)
-Final Fantasy VII (Thanks for the advice on this one, you guys!)
-Final Fantasy IV DS
-Final Fantasy XII

The strangest of all of these is XII. XII is a game I've always kind of hated, but as this jRPG binge progressed, I knew it was inevitable. I fell completely in love with the game, nothing has captured my imagination to such a degree since I saw the Empire Strikes Back for the first time.
I made a ridiculous amount of progress in all these games, but today, I'm completely worn out. I think it's finally come to an end, and my head is filled with pirates and dragons and ninjas and castles and big swords and doors that are actually monsters and Chocobos. I never want to see an ATB gauge again. (although, I am getting a sudden urge to fire up VI now...)

As of yet, Persona 3 remains untouched... but you never know...
