I love Final Fantasy. FF VI stands tall as one of my three favorite games of all time, with entries like VII, IV, and X not far behind. The battle systems were great (especially in X), the stories interesting, and the characters sympathetic. Remember when Celes tried to commit suicide? When Sephiroth killed Aerith? There are select moments that stand out in every player’s mind. And some are unique, too. Like when I cast Ultima one last time with Celes at under 100 HP, killing the god-like Kefka in the process. The games are special in the way they introduced storytelling to a medium that was so lacking in it beforehand. But I don’t love Final Fantasy. Not anymore.
