Been playing games since I was a kid. Mainly portables until recently. Have a PS3, Wii, DS, Mac and own games for all formats. Into all genres, but mainly JRPGs, fighting, and party games. Don't get to play as much as I'd like, but I can throw down with the best of them. Grad school is a huge time sink.
PS3- Mass Effect 2
Wii- Waiting for Skyward Sword
DS- Dragon Quest IX
Mac- Papers for class
iPhone- Angry Birds
So I noticed it's been months since I posted anything. Sadly, nothing too much has changed with my life. I'm nearing the end of the class portion of my Ph. D and will be starting on writing my dissertation in earnest. Additionally, I'll be diving head first into attempting to find employment in Academia. Other than that, I'm doing my best to consider myself a game despite playing maybe 6 hours a month, if I'm lucky.
However, there is one game which could possibly cause my gaming time to increase considerably.
It's become a nearly annual ritual for me. Firing up my emulator and starting yet another play through of this genuine classic. The game never ceases to surprise me, from interesting new party combinations to little bits of artwork. Plus, the highs of its story are still there.
Love this music
However, despite my deep and abiding love for Final Fantasy 6, I have a sad confession.
I've never purchased the game.
Don't get me wrong, I don't make it a habit to steal games, especially those I love. The company put the man-hours in making this masterpiece, and they deserve to be compensated. However, the game does not exist on a format that allows me to repay Square for creating this game. Considering all the enjoyment I've gotten out of this game, I would be happy to purchase it on nearly any platform. And speaking of platforms...
