Chocobo Appreciation Station: In Which We Talk About Final Fantasy

  • I'm on a real big Final Fantasy kick right now, probably set off by the announcement of FFXII: The Zodiac Age, and as a result I want to talk about Final Fantasy a whole bunch. So how about a general-purpose FF thread?

    Right now I'm replaying Final Fantasy IX, which has always been one of my favorites, but even now I'm still surprised at just how much charm this game has. That charm's inherent in everything from the character designs, to the enemy designs (the friendly monsters!), the way the game handles chocobos (you become good buddies with a single chocobo throughout the game), and how snappy and easy-going the dialog tends to be. It's a real feel-good game.

    Anyone else playing or thinking about Final Fantasy these days?
