Ahh, this is so good! Thanks for sharing your experience and I’m so glad you enjoyed the game too. It’s something special to be sure. YES. I’m hoping the soundtrack gets a vinyl release.

Yeah, that’s a lot of time to sink into a game and then try to go back to. I feel you. That’s me and P5 right now! I kinda want to play Ni no Kuni. I played the second and liked it but it sort of summarizes what happened in the first so I don’t feel too compelled to do so anymore.

Ah, those are some big ones! Do you think you’ll try to finish FFVII before the remake?

haha, it’s okay. It happens... this is what happens to me in Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced. I just keep doing sidequests instead of just being like, “CONTINUE STORY”. which is a button click away. I dunno what’s wrong with me either.

This is such a good summation of what the game does well and how it achieves all it does. Thanks for that.

I didn’t use fast travel too much in my playthrough. I think with my sister we used it a bit more but we also were trying to get it done before Dragon Quest Builders 2 came out. And still it took us 140 hours. XD Glad you’re playing it again with your wife and having a great time!

Omg, yes! I’m with you! I played Suikoden I and II only a few years ago. I stuck with I just so I could play II and sooo glad I did. One of the best games for sure. I tried playing III but trailed off early on. I should try to go back one day...

Yeah, that could be frustrating. I’ve always been interested in those games but wonder if the difficulty will just make me not want to play. I’m thinking about trying Sekiro. I totally hear you on hitting that wall and wanting to play something that makes you feel like you’ve made progress.

It scratched the discs, then clawed its way up the walls before positioning itself on top of the TV and self destructed. It was something I’d like to forget, Chris. Please. T.T

It’s so true!!! I kept telling my friends to get it but I can’t even tell them why, and just hope they trust me.

Definitely. It’s one of those games you wish you could forget everything about it, just so you could experience it again. Pretty damned amazing.

Hrmmm! This is even more encouraging! I just need to buckle down and figure out where I’m at because I am very curious to see how it all goes down. Thanks for that, TurntSNACO!

I need to get past the third biome bosses. >.< But I only tried once so I’ll go back sometime. I can only imagine what hell awaits me at the final boss.
