The biggest difference between now and when I first played final fantasy X is that, when I was in grade 12 and first played it, I had more free time then I knew what to do with. I didn’t really realize that the free-time thing would be a hindrance to enjoying the re-release of my favourite video game of all time, but… let’s just say that an epic game like FFX feels slightly less epic in 30 minute intervals once every six days.
I will say this though: The HD graphics are pretty sweet. It is especially noticeable in how the back-grounds pop off of the screen. The character models in HD are sweet too! Some of the animations seem awkward when paired with such pretty looking character models, but you know, that’s how it goes when you don’t make it over again from the ground up. It’s great! I just wish I could actually play it! haha.
But, let’s be honest. I have a wife I love, a daughter I love, a puppy I love, a job I love… grade 12 me didn’t have any of those things, and he needed a fantasy to fill the time. Maybe… I don’t any more? in the words of blink 182… “I guess this is growing up”! …lets see if i can make another highschool reference… “Whadda yah mean, barq’s has bite? JOHNNY!?” Final Fantasy indeed.
