Better Late: Final Fantasy VI Advance

GP writes: I played Final Fantasy VII when it first released in 1997. I was 9. I didn’t understand much of it, but Cloud’s larger-than-life voyage still filled me with the same warm pleasantness I found in a heated blanket or comfort food. It took me weeks just to get out of Midgar, longer to reach the second disc, and months to finally conquer the game and put Sephiroth in the ground.

I was enthralled all the way through, excited by my recent conquest, and ready for more Final Fantasy. I really dug IX, XII, enjoyed X, and could never quite get into VIII or XIII. Sadly, I never got around to playing Final Fantasy VI (released as Final Fantasy III for the SNES in the US) despite numerous friends recommending me to do so. I struggled to justify the high price of a (19 year old) game I had no nostalgia for, and I refused (okay, refused is a strong word) to play the (supposedly) inferior Playstation version. I recently found the GBA port for five dollars at a local pawn shop and couldn’t pass up the opportunity. (Final Fantasy VI, Retro)
