Review: I don't own this game. I have never goten farther than the flashbacks at Kalm (a town). Yet I believe it the greatest RPG ever. Why? It takes a HUGE evolutionary step forward from the older RPGs; its graphics are some of the best. It's storyline is even more developed than a normal Final Fantasy game (which is saying something) and it is the one game that brought Role Playing to the "Mainstream". How often has Japan had a game that makes me drool, yet AQmerica is told we are 'not ready' or that the game would not be 'succesful' in America. Well, this changed that (somewhat) by being the most succesgul RPG of all time. (in north America)
Playable with: Super Nintendo. I guess there are some emulators floating about, as well.
Review: This what I consider the best RPG storyline wise. It's graphics can be called archaic from the safety of 1999 (although some scenes still steal my breath) It's characters are all real people; and you can identify with their plight. It stays in my mind like a good fantasy novel. In Japan it was a huge hit; there were Final Fantasy merchandise and soundtracks, although this isn't unusual for a highly succesfuly videogame. In North America, every RPG buff owns a copy, but it failed to really crack the mainstream in the way FF7 did. (Oh, the final fantasy series has 7 games and several spin-offs in Japan. So why is each game "final"? It's just some Japanese thing)
Playable with: Super Nintendo (famicon in Japan) and i kNOW there are emulators for this game.
Review: This is my favorite RPG. OK, I know I said Final Fantasy 7 is the best, and Final Fantasy 3/6 has the best story, but something about this RPG is magic for me! It was my first one, excluding *sigh*
Playable with: Super Nintendo/Famicon. Once again, I'm unsure about emulation.
