OK, using this input and my own personal gaming preferences I've come down to six choices:
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Final Fantasy Tactics
Skies of Arcadia
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Tales of Vesperia
I'll make the quiz about one of those six. I apologize that it's half Square-Enix, but a lot of my history of playing RPGs is Square-Enix. A few more days of discussion, then I'll pick one and start replaying, playing, researching, and writing. So let's talk.
