How I play RPG's:

- Get as many powerful guys as possible and as few magic casters (but you still need one).
- Fight early and often to build up experience and strength.
- Drop tons of cash on the most powerful weapons possible for the fighters.
- Drop secondary cash on armor for the weak players.
- Repeat until the guys just decimate the enemies.

Playing FF, I can see just how far we've come. So much of it is broken. But the game is 25 years old so I can't complain too much.

I liked a lot of the ideas in FF13, but the execution was terrible. I like not micro-managing my players, but it felt too hands-off. Story was terrible, no strategy, no puzzles, no excitement.

And really since the PS era, we've gone from Final FANTASY to Final Sci-Fi. I'd really like to see a return to that. No more guns and space ships.


Back to FF, holy crap the Chaos Shrine is annoying. I can't save at all so I need an hour of uninterrupted time to go through it. I've tried three times now and keep having to re-start because I get interrupted.
