Final Fantasy Friday: VI

Thank God it's Friday!

I spent a couple of hours into midnight preparing more of my A to Z Challenge posts, and my theme will be revealed on Monday with a bunch of other peoples' (click here to learn about the theme reveal)!

I'm excited about it because I went really dramatic with my reveal. It's Gif City! *giggle*

But anyway, I haven't done a Final Fantasy Friday in a few, so I thought I'd talk about Final Fantasy VI for a second, which I recently just started playing again. (Here is the opening theme with the original version of the music I posted a few days ago.)

In 1994, FF6 was released as Final Fantasy III in the US because only the original Final Fantasy and FF4 had been released here (weird). I didn't have a Nintendo when I was a kid, so I never heard about Final Fantasy until FF7 made its groundbreaking debut with Playstation. But just so you know, Final Fantasy VI is the beginning of the great storylines of Final Fantasy games. FF5 tried really hard, and I don't even remember FF4's story, so I firmly stand behind my statement.

The main character is Terra, a half-human half-esper who is under mind control by the militaristic government at the beginning of the game, but contact with a frozen esper frees her from their grasp. It's a very intricate story about power and love, and I enjoy playing it, so that's why I'm playing it again!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I wanted to go to Philly tomorrow, but we'll have to see!

A theme reveal full of gifs sounds fun! Looking forward to it! :)

And FF6 seems like a fascinating game. Hope you have lots of fun (re)playing it!

Hey there! You're welcome! No, by the time Saturday came, I just wanted to chill. Then I hung out with my niece.
