Why Computer RPGs Waste Your Time

JayBlalock Re:At least some variation! (476 comments)

Ok, how can you mention Final Fantasy X and *not* mention FF VI? As far as I'm concerned, it has possibly the greatest plot of any video game ever. (allowing for limitations of the script due to cartridge size) The characters and human and flawed. The bad guy is Evil Personified. The plot is huge and epic. And, of course, the big plot twist halfway through. For the one person out there who hasn't played it yet (GO BUY THE GBA VERSION!) I won't spoil it, but you want to talk about throwing the player for a loop? I think I played with my jaw hanging open for about an hour straight. To this day, I can't believe the audacity of what they did.
