    Hi DeadRinger1986,

    Thanks for keeping up with my blogs.

    For FFX, I am playing remaster.

    For FF1 + FF2, I played the PSP ports.

    FF3-FF9, I played the Steam Ports. I think FF6 was the worse port, literally just the mobile version ported to Steam. FFIV was the remaster, and it was very challenging, but in the end I was able to beat it. It's been awhile since I have played FF3 but it was pretty interesting. There were some game mechanics that made a lot of sense to use certain classes over others. It kind of pushed you to think about your upcoming fights if you've failed.

    My only thoughts on IV were two particular bosses I've had difficulty with. The remaster was very challenging but overall, if you were creative, and smart with your decision making, you could make it through. I think the only reason why I won both fights was because of RNG and not good decision making. Whatever the reason was, I was able to get through them and beat the game.

    I'm not very savvy with all the game mechanics but I think I'd probably do a lot better my second time through. I think that's how I was able to improve myself in Final Fantasy VII.

    I've also played Chrono Trigger and I think that's a fantastic game that still holds up today. I was also a big fan of Chrono Cross too which I am surprised not a lot of people really liked.

    Looking forward to hearing about your journey with your game catalog.

    Love it. I guess I am following you, but with more SE titles than just the FFs. But, only TV console RPGs, none of the shooter games, rhythm games, mobile games, no XI or XIV, etc. Just doing what I like I am originally a VII - X generation kid. FFX was one of my absolute favorites so I hope you enjoy it. Are you on the PS4 remaster? Or are you attempting all original versions?

    Right now, I've completed I, II, V, and currently going through the PSP version of III. Then, the rest of my SNES generation will include FFIV, FFVI, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger.

    I really like III. Probably the fact that it's a PSP port has a lot to do with that, but I feel like the job system is a lot more fun and less cumbersome than the famous FFV job system--which felt like a needless grind to me, since all the bosses/superbosses could be beaten without all the extra grinding at endgame.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on X, and for that matter any thoughts on III and IV since that's where I'm heading.
