I finished up with FF1 and I was looking through my collection and started playing Grandia II I couldn't help myself. Playing all these classics just makes me that much more disappointed in the newer gen games. I am not putting the new games down at all, I am just reminiscing on times past that will never be again.. but I must not let that hold me back from trying something new. I am always on the lookout for something new with an old style feel to it.
Lately, like I said in my last blog post, I have been getting a little frustrated with newer games not being all they can be. I wsa playing Final Fantasy XII about a week ago and it was fun and all, but just a little too much like reading a book. I mean that the story and gameplay was pretty linear compared to past FF games. I always remember going through all the level building and item collecting in FFIII and trying to make Sabin do his blitz moves while getting frustrated at the bosses when they wouldn't work hehe. I remember the chocobo races in FFVII and acquiring the gold chocobo, and who can forget Sephiroth!! I guess I am just old fashioned in my way of gaming, but as far as classics go... No matter how old classics become, they truly never get OLD! There aren't many new games you can say that about anymore.
