Final Fantasy Fanatic [#3]
Do you remember Final Fantasy I? I do. The latest version appeared on the Playstation Portable a few months ago, but I personally experienced it on the Game Boy Advance. Entitled Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, the hype for this game was very high, and when it was released back in 2004, it certainly sold quite well. The game was a remake of the Playstation One game Final Fantasy Origins, but had additional features. If you were one of the hardcore gamers who remembers playing this game on the Nintendo Entertainment System, then surely you will remember the annoyance of saving. Thanks to recent technology, games have become easier in that regard, no longer requiring passwords to save your progress in the game.
What made Final Fantasy I such a good game was that the company, Square (as that is what is was known by back in the day) put its heart and soul into making the game. The company had made previous games before, but did not sell well at all. This game was their last chance, their last fantasy. But to their surprise, it sold many copies, and ended up becoming Square’s hit franchise.
Fast forward to 1:15. The music is beautiful…
The Game Boy Advance version was noted for being very simplistic and easy- and it certainly was. The story was practically non existent, but what I enjoyed most about the game was the music. This game was awesome to hear with headphones, and the classic songs were very nostalgic to me.
Do you have any memories of playing Final Fantasy I?
