    Yes, you should. Experience the true glory that is FF1.

    Seriously, at $30, it's a great deal.

    The gaming magazines tend to get the game sooner than the average gamer, I believe. Yes I saw the review, I would've given it a 10 myself. But meh. Yeah, it's available Apr. 8th.

    Magazines get advance copies so they can review the game before anyone can play it. Think of it as advertising. In fact, most magazines get unfinished copies of games, mostly for the top draw games such as whichever Final Fantasy or wrestling game is coming up next. I can see why FFO wouldn't get the top ranking, it not have pr3ty 3D gRaFiX0r! Though I'd personally pay money to watch the new-shool FFers see "ineffective" for the first time

    Man, I used to hate INEFFECTIVE, but now I've grown to love it, too bad it's not in the newer games.

    You should most definately think about getting this game.

    You should definitely get it. FF1 is one of the best games of all time, and FF2 would probably be good if I could get used to the battle system. If it's only $30 like Mr. Graves said, then that's even better.

    If you entered the contest, you might have gotten it free. Square seems to be holding off on announcing the winners.....

    the street date is April 8, thus it isn't in stores yet

    however, the game is out in japan and EU if you can't wait and want to import it. I paid good money (~$60 USD) to import FF1 back in december and it was worth every cent of it.

    Which Final Fantasy One Enemy am I?

    You Are CHAOS; You are the supreme evil reigning in the land. You are large, in charge, and made all-powerful through a very confusing time-loop thing. Hidden in the past, you destroy the future from within, and a single battle with you could determine the fate of the planet...

    Problem? PROBLEM!??!?!?! Why you.....

    It's still in the game, but you have the option of turning it off. I hope it defaults to auto targetting off though, so teh n00bs can get that lovely message thrown in their face.

    Actually, once you get used to it, not having auto targetting isn't that bad. It makes you economize your damage somewhat so you won't waste attacks. For example, you know that X monster has let's say 500 HP. In one round of damage you do about 490 HP of damage to it. On the next turn, you're probably gonna make your fighter attack someone else since he does a lot more than 10 HP damage and you can't afford to get an ineffective for his attack. I wound up just using this strategy when I played the FF1WSC rom even with auto target turned on.

    I found playing old school rpgs greatly improved my skills in other rpgs, Many newer games are easy in comparisn

    Hey guys I'm new. FF Origins has come out here in the UK and I'd strongly suggest your purchase. There are two sweet intros for both titles and some fine Yoshitaka Amano cards as a bonus.
