This is easily one of the craziest stories in gaming.

Sony versus Nintendo back in the early nineties is like something straight biblical lol

They went on to gather so much support in basically became a complete monster in the home console market, so much so that Nintendo went portable only with the switch.

Who would have thought all those years ago that Sony would not only sell more home consoles ,that they would basically shove Nintendo out of the Home console Market?

Sony also helped us in Europe too. Until this point Nintendo never cared about bringing a FF game to Europe. Sony fixed this.
Nintendo people always said they were betrayed when FFVII came to PS1 yet European NES and SNES fans never got to play any FF games beforehand anyway.

7 was the first Final Fantasy I completed.
Chrono Trigger was my First JRPG. I traded Donkey Kong Country 2 Diddys Kong Quest and Super Mario World with a friend. Chrono Trigger was worth 2 games to me.
