Excerpt: It seems to be "walk down memory lane" week at GameCritics.com. Last time around, Chi was reminiscing about the years and the money he wasted standing in front of a Gauntlet arcade machine. Now, I am about to relate a similar tale. Back in the day, action games were my thing and I never gave role-playing games (RPGs) much thought. It was only through a chance occurrence that I got my hands on Final Fantasy II .
Excerpt: Well, these graphics were state of the art on the SNES. Beyond state of the art, actually -- a lot of us boggled that FFVI could really be on our little 2mHz machine. But it was. Nowadays, the graphics seem rather outdated, but who cares? You don't play Final Fantasy V and VI for the little sprites. And the games will surprise you nonetheless with beautiful scenes. They may not be rendered, but they're still gorgeous.
Excerpt: After receiving numerous requests from gamers to localize Final Fantasy 5 and re-release their SNES RPGs, Square delivered Final Fantasy Anthology to North America. Final Fantasy Anthology is a bundle including the PlayStation versions Final Fantasy 5 and Final Fantasy 6. Final Fantasy 5 begins with the King of Tycoon boarding his dragon and heading for the Wind Shrine. He is going there to investigate a problem with the Wind Crystal.
Excerpt: When it was heard that Square will be re-releasing a couple of their best RPG's, two words came into every bodies head, Final Fantasy. But which ones. Originally Square planned on releasing FF4, 5, and 6. But they took out 4 and just left it as FF5 and FF6. There is not a doubt in any ones mind that these two titles were probably one of the best RPG's ever created. Final Fantasy 5 was never released in the US and was only released in Japan.
Excerpt: It's cheating a little bit to consider these titles as PSone cult classics, perhaps - but Square's decision to port SNES-era Final Fantasies IV, V and VI, along with classic SNES RPG Chrono Trigger, to the PlayStation yielded arguably some of the best gaming value of the PlayStation era.
Excerpt: Dawno, dawno temu, za górami, za lasami, w wielkim mieście Warszawą zwanym, żył sobie przyszły Imperator Kowal I wraz ze swoim przyszłym dworem. Wtedy jeszcze nie wiedział, że będzie Imperatorem ale to już inna historia, którą być może kiedyś opowiem... Pewnego dnia z mozołem stukając w klawisze interpretował swe myśli na ekran je przelewając.
