Wow, that image makes it look so much cooler. So I entered the final dungeon at level 55, all the sub-bosses barely touched me . . . and the final boss was STILL a fucking bitch.
Anyway. I finished it. Although I did like it despite its flaws (unnecessary difficulty, retarded final string of bosses/dungeons, still no semblance of a cool plot/characters, etc.), and I really think the Job System is pretty interesting and complex, it's definitely the Final Fantasy that's left me the most underwhelmed. 8/10. I did think the ending was pretty cute. I liked that it showed more 'closure' than I and II which just . . . kinda ended.
So. Let's see that bitch revised (and with 'tier' idea theft!).
Moving on to FFIV on the DS. I heard it's also very difficult. I hope it's not the case. I want to breeze through an RPG and just enjoy the story for once. When that's done, it's V on the PS1 and then to cap off the series, VI.
I hope to finish the remaining three before XIII is released.
