When it comes to games, a language barrier
can be hard to overcome. Then again, finding new things to do with a so-so game can be entertaining as well.
Well, I just finished Final Fantasy III last night, and while I enjoyed the game, I'm not sure how I feel now that it is over. The confrontation with the final enemy is set up in such a way that you cannot save your progress at any point after you face the first of 6 final enemies. In other words, when you die, you have to start all over again with the first one (and there's more than a few critters in the way, too). This would not be so bad except that there is a lengthy bit of exposition that they stick in the beginning of this sequence that I had to sit through three times because I was not skilled enough to defeat the final villain the first two times (the disparity in strength between the final boss and the first 5 is rather annoying.) Oddly enough, when I built my party up for my third run at the boss, I was surprised at how easily I defeated it - either the enemy just wasn't built to handle high-level characters or I just got lucky.
At any rate, I'm ready for a new game. Any suggestions?
