Sharing my post on Re¢ently

Aug 7, 04:57 PM · from the mouth of Jake

Just in case you guys don’t see this on my other weblog I thought I’d mention it here. I have to admit that this is probably more interesting to Andy but it should at least remind everyone of our classic video game days.

Reminiscing With The Final Fantasy Retrospective

Here’s the first part directly.

    holy crap, this takes me back. Remember when we used to call each other every day when this first came out? “Hey Jake, how ya doing on Final Fantasy?” I remember you went to your grandma’s for a week and weren’t allowed to play as much, so I got ahead. one of these days I’ll have to replay this.

    off to the website to look at some more… =)

    Right… just read your post on recently… I guess you do remember all that! I’d forgotten that we got it early, though.

    Well if you plan on replaying it you can always look up the remake for GameBoy Advance or whatever. :) That one comes with 1 and 2, is portable, and is a little prettier. Of course, updating it might damage the nostalgia a bit. :(

    I’ve been resisting the urge to buy all the re-releases for GBA.

    Yeah, I never got into the whole RPG thing. But I remember you guys being nutso about Final Fantasy and Zelda. That movie did bring back memories of Dragon Warrior though. I don’t know how I ended up with that game… I think I got it as a gift. I liked it cause it was easy and (at the time) the graphics seemed pretty advanced.

    Still, my favorite NES games were Tetris and Mario 3. I remember that right around the time I started getting into Nintendo, I broke my thumb and had to wear a cast, so I learned to play using my index and middle fingers to hit the A and B buttons. Even after the cast came off, I still used my fingers instead of my thumb!

    After Super Nintendo, video games started getting too complicated for my feeble mind and lack of hand-eye coordination. I liked playing Mortal Combat on N64… I was even pretty good. But that’s thanks to my patented technique of hitting as many buttons as I could, as fast as I could. I was never able to do those long and complex combinations.

    The Wii looks like a lot of fun though, and it looks like they’ve dumbed a lot of the games back down so you don’t have to be a super-gamer to play them.
