Why the First Five Minutes of Final Fantasy VI are so effective

How often have you heard that a game doesn’t get good until you’re a few hours in? Modern games should learn from Final Fantasy VI's perfect first five minutes. An opening should set the tone and hook the player, not bore them.

The story is too old to be commented.

FFVII's opening was much better.

This was the greatest Final Fantasy made! Finding some of the people that joined your party was tough like the ninja and mimic. Game was awesome! I grew up in the 80s and 90s so these early FF games were my favorites. FF7 through 9 were good just not as good as 6 to me. I can see how a lot of people like 7 the best it is quite good.

The music. That is one of the best tunes in gaming.
