Pixel Attack: "Fourteen years ago, it wasn’t common for games to have FAQs or “tips and tricks” websites online. In fact, it wasn’t common to have full access to the internet at all. So, imagine picking up Final Fantasy X for the first time as a ten-year-old kid, and hitting one of the many walls that stopped a lot players in their tracks.
I remember the difficulty of Final Fantasy X being a huge deal: there were TV programs on how to beat it and gaming magazines dedicated entire sections to boss strategies and item collection. Strategy guides were out the door as soon as they arrived in stores.
I was one of the many who hit a wall trying to defeat one of the alleged ‘super bosses’ to no avail. Yet, Final Fantasy X persevered despite this."
