PixlBit's Final Fantasy Retrospective: The PlayStation 2 Years

PixlBit | Welcome to the fourth part of our long look at the Final Fantasy series, in celebration of its 25th anniversary. In our last installment, we talked about how Square stunned the gaming world by leaving their longtime home of Nintendo platforms for the shiny new world of CD technology with Sony's PlayStation. This time, we look at the series in its somewhat shaky transition to voice acting, a controversial but successful transition into the online space, and the first game in the series to have real problems behind the scenes. (Culture, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy XI, Final Fantasy XII, PS2, Retro)

I love how people still think that Tidus travelled into the Future when in fact Dream Zanarkand exists in Present Day Spira in the far Western sea where no one has explored.

When it came to talking about story, I did my best to avoid spoilers, instead trying to stick to the quick overview/synopsis when needed.

With that said, I don't remember that part of the game, but I also haven't played FF X since around 2004, so my memory of the last quarter of the game is a bit fuzzy. Waiting for that HD version to revisit it.

I wasn't necessarily referencing you specifically even if it seemed that way. I've just seen that a lot about FFX. And in truth, the information I posted isn't in the game, it was stated by one of the developers.

Oh, that's interesting. I'm definitely going to keep that in mind next time I play FF X. I really loved it when it first came out and it's still one of my favorite FF games. I was a big Tidus defender back then, and still am today.

that's representation of FFX incredible story-telling. [obvious sarcasm]

But FF games are always hard to understand anyway, probably due to tons of stuff that gets lost in translation.
