Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
When I originally saw Final Fantasy Tactics, I was wary. It seemed like one of -those- games. An offshoot of a popular series just to tap into a different market. 'RPG and Strategy gameplay? Can't work' I thought. Instead, I slept two hours a day and spent the rest of my time addictedly maxing out job levels, farming money for better equipment, handcrafting my party to absolute perfection and swearing every time I died to a boss battle. How much do you need to say? I could go on about the amazing music and graphics for it's time, I could blather about the way it seamlessly blends roleplaying with strategy in a way I've only seen in two other games to date, or maybe I could rattle off the overall score. But why? It is a gem of a game that if you can find it, will keep you entertain, curious and awed throughout it's amazing journey through the life of a man in a time of political strife and chaos, through the betrayals and alliances, through the dreams and sorrows of every main character as you race to save the world from destruction. It's amazing. Pure and simple.
