Has this game aged as well as fine wine or would you describe it as sour milk? The game is over twenty-five years old now and been ported to every electrical device known to man, so what are your thoughts? Has this game aged well or do you feel playing through it now is more about the novelty than the enjoyment?

Personally I feel this game has aged rather well and I've always had a fun time doing another run through when the mood strikes me. It's always been one of those games where I never think about playing it over the new shiny stuff or old faves, but when I do I suddenly remember how magical it was.

What are your thoughts?

I grew up in the 8/16 bit era so my opinion may be biased since I'm used to the visuals, but I think Final Fantasy has aged just fine. When I played it for the first time I had a lot of fun, and when I had my "A-Team" of Warrior, Red Mage, White Mage, and Monk, I got pretty far into the game before finally stopping. Can't remember why I did.

It's way more entertaining to run through than 2, 3, and maybe even 4. So I'd say it's aged pretty well.

I have just as much fun playing it now as I did 20 years ago. It's aged well for me but I don't know how much someone new to it would enjoy the game.

I played the NES version after this PS1 version about 8 or 9 years ago and was fine going into it. The game is a grindfest no matter which version you play.

To this day, this game is still awesome. No tedious sidequests. No muscle spasming games. Just good ol' JRPG fun.

I think it's still a great game. Granted, I've only played the updated versions. I'd love to go back and get the original NES version. I still plan to at some point.

It was my first entry into the world of RPG's when I was just a wee lad, but I find myself every so often still grabbing at the game and plugging it in to play!

People still have fun playing the original for the first time even today. Having said that, I wouldn't blame those who play more updated versions of the game that streamline the gameplay, making leveling easier, and fights go by faster.
