What I’ve Learned from Final Fantasy

March 20, 2010
  • Ordinary people can be thrust into extraordinary circumstances at any moment
  • Through discipline, training, and out-and-out grinding, great power can be achieved
  • A love story always makes the action that much more thrilling
  • Sometimes the fate of the entire world really is at stake
  • No matter how hard the battles, no matter how perilous the heights, victory awaits in the end for those who choose to persevere
  • Killing monsters is cool
  • Even the most epic plots are only as compelling as the depth, strength and likability of the characters
  • Side-quests and subplots add intensity and context and always enrich an already powerful storyline
  • Making super-bad, magical-beastie-thing-enemies explode into a billion pieces is tremendous fun
  • The whole world is interactive and just waiting for brave explorers to discover all its secrets and mysteries
  • Though the ending may be spectacular, it is the journey that makes it all worthwhile

    LOVE! You’re so right!!! Making super-bad, magical-beastie thingies explode is EPIC!

    And don’t forget the summons/eidolons 😉
