I saw dhobo's completion for the first Final Fantasy pop up on the home page today and it reminded me that I need to play that game. I grew up with Dragon Warrior and was limited to seeing Final Fantasy in Nintendo Power. I ended up going with a Genesis instead of a SNES, so I didn't actually play a Final Fantasy until VII on PS1. I've had Final Fantasy Origins for years and keep saying I'm going to play through the original, but I've still yet to do so.

Well, I've been looking for some games to play in this awesome 3-day weekend coming up and I think you may have just motivated me to play that one. I'm sure I'll end up playing something else since my attention span is crap these days :(, but it's a nice fleeting thought hehe. It's times like this that the site could use that motivation feature and everyone could poke me until I finish it...

Funny you should mention Nintendo Power. I went full-on nostalgia mode and busted out my beat up copy (missing the cover, sadly) of the Final Fantasy guide they published so I had maps and stuff to refer to for this solo run.
Sure, I could have used the internets, but what's the fun in that?

Fun fact: I owned the NP FF strat guide years before I actually had the game itself. I would always borrow the cartridge from friends instead, lol

I beat Final Fantasy a while back. I actually loaded up the version that is on the PS1 Origin collection to do so. I got cocky and decided to try and beat 2. HA! No way, that game is ridiculous!
