My long, rambling posts on Final Fantasy IX turned out to be more popular than I expected. It turns out that there is indeed an audience which appreciates splicing the cosmological argument alongside discussions of game mechanics. And I enjoyed writing it.
So perhaps there should be more of this thing here. There are quite a few interesting old games lying around. The most obvious next step would be to do a piece on Final Fantasy VII, thus rounding off the PS1 Final Fantasy “trilogy.” The trouble is that JRPGs are looong, and having played through two back to back, I need a breather.
Thus in the meantime I’ve got something similar, but more manageable, in the works.
