Fave genre: Role-Playing Games

My first gaming console was a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). But then I was only playing platform, fighting, and adventure games like Super Mario World and Street Fighter.

It was when I was given a playstation1 that I had my eyes opened to this genre. At first I really never understood what the genre was about. I was more focused on Tekken3 at the time. But one of my friends lent me an original copy of Final Fantasy VII and told me to try it out.

I remember loading the game and expecting something interesting. Well, I got more than that, I was blown away. FFVII totally converted me from an occasional-multi-focus-genre gamer into an addicted-RPG-focused-freak gamer. I remember being awake for 2 days leveling up my group inside the crater in the 3rd disc. It felt like I was hit by a truck afterwards 😯 . I didn’t have much interest in other genres after FFVII. But I’m keeping an open mind. I still play other genres like FPS and Racing, but only occasionally.

RPG games are for people with free time on their hands. I was able to have enough free time to play the Final Fantasy series until FFIX. I played FFVII three times, FFVIII three times, and FFIX two times. My most recent was FFIX.

I really love the FF series. Sometimes I want to forget the story of FFVII so I can play it again and feel like I was playing it for the first time. Awesome feeling. 😀

But now, college life is taking a lot of my time. Damn! I really hate thesis work! But what can you do. If you want to graduate you have to endure and make sacrifices. I feel like dying right now 😥 . Well, I guess I have to wait until I graduate and a get a job to support my gaming habits. Then I can kill myself through gaming. A slow and wonderful death. (evil laugh) 😈

I’ll have to leave the recent releases into the FF series untouched for now. (wait for me my precious, you will be in my arms soon enough) (evil snicker) :mrgreen:
