Though my original NES cartridges died long ago, I always wanted to revisit the world that spawned my original love of video games oh so long ago. I rember the first time I ever played Final Fantasy, I was 7 years old and the year was 1990. I didn’t have my own NES yet, that wouldn’t come for another year, so I worked out a deal with a kid at school. My huffy bmx for 3 hours, for 3 hours alone with his NES every day after school. I still remember his older sister coming down to their game room and asking me “Why are you guys friends if you never play together?” ; it was the first time a girl ever questioned me about my love of video games, but it wouldn’t be the last. You know . . . the story is a lot better if you read it it listening to the official Final Fantasy theme, enjoy.
