RE: When i was a kid my dad gave me a playstation with final fantasy 7, and it lasted me years. i would definitely pay to have an experience like that again. Playing ff7 and ff9 was such an adventure for me. I could play for hours doing all the side quest for different weapons and materia or even just to find out more about the characters stories.
Ever since those games i have never played final fantasy again and i would say it is because it has lost all of those little things that made me love the game in the first place. I say Square should go back to what the games use to be. so much character, romance, and mysterious adventures!
