WC - Growing up, there was nothing I enjoyed more than coming home after a long day of school and jumping onto a classic Final Fantasy game. Or Grandia. Or Star Ocean. Come to think of it, I played an awful lot of JRPGs – some multiple times through.
Despite the hours of endless enjoyment hidden within the classic games of my youth, I could never quite put my finger on the factor of the games that had drawn me to them every day throughout my childhood; at least not until the new style JRPGs were released.
