I remember the Y2K scare and trying to beat FF8 before midnight when supposedly all the power in the world would go out and computers would fail, etc. Was such a thrill as I was like 13 or 14 years old at the time, I did actually bat it before midnight.
I remember playing FFI Dawn of Souls when I used to work in the dorms as a security monitor during my college years. Basically, I just sat at the entrance and studied the whole time, and if I wasn't studying, I was playing my GBA. Best job ever.
I remember forcing my cousins to watch me play FF7-9 and influencing them to be RPG junkies as they were growing up. Now one of them plays more video games than I do, and I can't help but feel responsible for that.
