The first game I ever played was Super Mario Bros./Duckt Hunt. Aside from that it was Tetris. :P

The first game that got me into gaming was probably Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo, as well as Duck Hunt. Don't know why but it was extremely entertaining to shoot ducks on a screen.. with the Nintendo gun. Hehe. :p After that it was SEGA and SNES. Sonic The Hedgehog, Ecco The Dolphin, random Disney games on SEGA and for SNES it was Donkey Kong and Super Mario All Stars. Once my brother got a PlayStation, I watched him play games with his friend.. then I asked if I could play Final Fantasy VII. They said yes and ever since then I've played newer games. Love video games.

I usually check GameFAQs for all of my walkthroughs unless they somehow don't have what I'm looking for, or I don't find a guide I like. I guess I'm weird because I like guides to be written a certain way. I like it when a guide author writes a guide but they add their own personal touch and sense of humor to it, I guess this makes the guide more "enjoyable" for me if I'm going to be using it in the longrun for referencing and whatnot. It also depends on the type of game I'm playing, If I'm playing a Final Fantasy game then I'm going to want a guide that is longer, more in depth, etc. and if it's something like Resident Evil I prefer something short and simple yet something that will give me the information I need to progress through the game and collect all the items and extras along the way. If I find I enjoy an author's "writing style" in a guide they've done, I tend to look for their name when I go to another games guide list. :] So in the end, I basically compare various guides before I decide which on will work best for me. xD

Vaan was just a terrible character, and felt painfully tacked on. Having the game center on Balthier or Basch as the main playable would have helped my opinion of the game a lot. I know people insist Ashe is more or less the main character, but when I'm in a city, I see and control Vaan. He's got a decent enough design, but is just way too young, and thus, ANNOYING. Coming right off Tidus in FFX, this really grated on my nerves.thunderf00t

Although I enjoyed the game, I have to agree with that. Vaan was really weird looking.. his nose was all funny and his voice was kinda girly. xD Another character I didn't care for was Penelo. Then again, I always stuck with Vaan, Fran and Ashe in my party.. so I never had to deal with her much (thank goodness).

Oh man. I know exactly how you feel.

I bought FFXII for my PS2 a long time ago, it was 20 bucks brand-new at the store and I remember that I didn't play that game until an entire year had passed. This was odd, considering I'm a major FF fan (I own VII, VIII, IX, X, etc.) and I had taken the time to beat all the ones I owned at that time. FFXII is a game that you have to "adjust" to so to speak. I went into FFXII thinking it was going to have a battle system similar to FFX or FFX-2, but I was really surprised to find out that it was completely different. Although you may hate the battle system at the beginning of the game you'll learn to use it better and to love it in the end. I find that they did the right thing with the battle system, it makes battles easier because you can have each character doing separate actions all at the same time, so someone could be charging Curaga to cast on the entire party while the other characters continue to attack and defend against the enemy/boss. My advice to you is to take the game slow at first and just get the feel of it. Try to take on the easier enemies and slowly level up so you can defeat the tougher ones. Oh, and most of all.. Never attack the T-REX in the desert outside of the town. He will stomp you and have you for dinner. :[

Just keep playing the game, you'll learn to love the battle system and the story behind it is actually VERY good once you get going through the game. I remember hating it at the beginning but I pushed on and in the end I was really glad I finished it. Since you're a big fan of the FF series, you'll probably be glad that you finished it as well. As for the issues with the battle system, that's just how it works. It's much like how your character is slow in the beginning because his speed hasn't increased at all due to no leveling.. So you're not going to always attack right away when you choose to 'attack' an enemy. Just be careful of which enemies you fight because even though some of them may seem small and helpless, sometimes the smaller ones can really pack a punch. Lol.

So, I say keep going. I give it a 9/10.

Sadly, my Nintendo 64 is starting to do the same thing to me. I was playing Harvest Moon 64 one day and I had just saved my game, so I was lucky, but I turned away for a moment and when I looked back my game had "reset" itself. Don't know what's caused it, or what causes it. Perhaps it just wears down from use over the years? Unsure, but it confused me because I take very good care of my consoles (not saying you don't, though). I read on a site that you might wanna clean it with a can of air, but that's only if you think it's dusty or something.

I really loved the DMC games. Own and beat the first three and I don't own the proper console to play DMC4 yet, but it'll definitley be on the "to buy" list when i do get one. But.. mm.. Which would I like more? GoW was really good because it was different and offered a completely different enviroment and set of puzzles and skills to experience in the game, while DMC explores the whole 'demon' idea used in video games. They're both really great games.. But I have to say that DMC would probably win the battle. Really love the first and third game of DMC series (DMC2 was icky), loved the story and loved the enemies I got to kill. :D Sorry, I still love you GoW. :[

I play my GBA games on my DS a lot more than I do my DS games, surprisingly. Then again -- I don't have any major games on my DS like some people do.. I mainly have Animal Crossing and other "boredom killers" so to speak, no major RPG's (I know, you can stone me to death now). But I love playing my Final Fantasy Tactics Advance game on my DS, and my Harvest Moon games. :] Oh and let's not forget the Mario games, and Kirby.. and..and.. yeah, you get the picture. Haha.

[QUOTE="Zerocrossings"]

You bought Vagrant Story since launch and only played it now? >_> Dude, you missed out.

ckitchin

Yeah, unfortunately, I've done this with a lot of games. To name just a few: Final Fantasy IX, X, X-2, all the Xenosaga games, Chrono Cross, Zelda: The Windwaker. I could go on...but it's really pathetic.

Don't feel too bad about not playing games you've bought and left on the shelf. I have a lot of games that I've picked up over the years that I still haven't completed -- Namely, Threads of Fate, Dino Crisis 2, Silent Hill 2, Wild Arms 3, FFX-2, Xenosaga Ep. I Der Wille zur Macht , etc. etc. I've only recently begun to play them.. I'm hoping to get through the majority of my "unbeaten" games before I purchase anything like a 360 or a PS3. Also, I'm surprised that website gave it a -30. I've only heard great stories about Vagrant Story, some from really good friends of mine.

I love my NES, but I have to say that I loved the SNES 100x more. Gotta love the Donkey Kong, Kirby, and Mario games that were released on it. Not to mention Chrono Trigger, Seiken Denetsu, Illusion of Gaia, Lufia, Zombies Ate My Neighbors (also released on SEGA), and I'm not ashamed to admit that I played the Mickey Mouse video games on SNES as well. ;x
