Ah, Final Fantasy X... I remember seeing this game for the first time, it left a lot of gamers with the O face for weeks. The first hours of the game are pretty damn good too. I've never finished the game though but I watched the ending on YouTube just because I had forgotten what to do in last save file I left.
After playing the game for a long time, I was unable to go back and finish this "cinematic experience with a battle system" (yeah, that's what Final Fantasy X is for me). Overall, I just remember this from the game: Great battle system, great soundtrack, I hate Blitzball a lot more than Final Fantasy VIII, Lulu's boobs are beyond awesome and his design is ridiculous, I want to be like Auron when I get older, Seymour was a compelling antagonist in theory
, the story could have been better and HAHAHA!!
(the Japanese scene is even more awkward than the one we got, amazing stuff).
...oh yeah and the Thunder Plains! What an awesome place. That's one of the few times that I enjoyed grinding in an RPG (I grind like a motherfucker in MegaTen games though, so addicting). Really, is not a bad game
, but it left me with a bad impression over the years. Like, they have all this good ideas that worked well and all in the game (at that time anyway) but there was so much more potential for a more exciting story and what not.
But eh, later I played X-2 and I enjoyed that game a lot more that Final Fantasy X. At that time, I was just pleased about the fast-paced battle system. Everything else was stupid or annoying, but for some weird reason the story makes sense in that game.
After that, I stopped playing Final Fantasy games (I wonder why /sarcasm). Versus XIII, you are the last hope for Square Enix.
