RPGfan: In many ways, it is difficult to divorce the cultural impact of Final Fantasy X from any of my personal thoughts on the quality of the game. When FFX was released for the PS2 in 2001, it revolutionized the RPG genre. Beyond Pokemon, FFX was my introduction to the RPG genre, so my nostalgia for the game is immense. But to my shame, as an easily distracted kid, I only played enough to see the end of Tidus and Yuna's pilgrimage. Therefore, it was with great excitement that I started my playthough for Retro Encounter.
