Thinking about old school RPGs reminded me of something I've always wanted to do. I want to be able to legitimately say I have beaten every Final Fantasy game. It's time for me to start towards that goal.
First of all I'd like to lay down some ground rules. I'm only going to count the "main" Final Fantasy series. That means Final Fantasy I through XIII count but not Tactics, X-2, Chocobo Dungeon, or that sort of thing. I also don't count the MMO Final Fantasy games which are XI and XIV. I tried them and hated them. They seem more like a gimmick than an actual attempt at a Final Fantasy game. With these rules I have 12 Final Fantasy games to beat.
As of today I've already beaten Final Fantasy VII and everything above it. That brings the number of games I have to beat down to 6. That's a lot of hours, but not totally unmanageable especially because I don't intend to play them all back to back. This is a long term goal for me, but it is something I truly want to do.
I started playing Final Fantasy I this week and am really enjoying it. Expect to see some impressions soon.
