Farewell, PSOne. It's been a slice.

So I have a buyer for my PS1 and JRPG collection bundle. I know that I'm giving him a bit of a deal, but I'm too lazy to sell the games on Ebay...and I did get the PSone for free too...but it feels like I'm tearing something away.

Each game was chosen with precision, and played with care, and selected so that it might just increase in value over time...

And now, I don't really care.

Final Fantasy VII

Ah Cloud, Sephiroth, I bid you adieu. The story was so epic, so grand, so incomprehensible. Something about green stuff destroying the world, or a meteor destroying the world, or Sephiroth destroying the world...I'm actually not sure. I'm also not sure what happened at the end, or how that red dog cat thing had offspring asexually. But now I leave those questions aside, and wave goodbye to your strange localization and biceps shaped like triangles.

Final Fantasy VIII

Let's face it. I never liked you. I used a cheat to see the end. Spoiler: Squall smiles.


Apparently you were epic. Apparently, you kill God. I stopped caring around the title screen. Also, apparently you were worth a lot in 2003. I should have sold you sooner.


Five minutes! I was stuck in five minutes! You know how stupid that made me feel? I'm a scientist, dammit! Bye.

Star Ocean: The Second Story

Why is levelling up all I could do? Why do all your voice actors sound like they have a terrible head cold? Why do you have voice actors?

Legend of Dragoon

You had a villain named Lloyd. LLOYD. Not indimidating. And who died? Was it Lenny? I'm certain there was a Lenny in there somewhere. I went and read the Wikipedia entry on you to try to remember the plot. It was incomprehensible. Something about artifacts and winglies and villains and dead people coming to life (apparently Lenny did) and Moon Children. Don't let the door hit you as you leave.

Final Fantasy Chronicles/Anthology

I have a better copy of Chrono Trigger and FFIV now. You may go.

Final Fantasy Tactics

DIE IVALICE. Apparently I'm not mature enough to understand games set there. Because I like things like plot and characters. Oh yeah, and not dying.

Chrono Cross

You were so utterly awesome...gameplay, variety of characters, music, villain...I would have liked you, except you were supposed to be a sequel to the Greatest Game Ever, and you just couldn't compete. Also, you stated that my favourite characters from the Greatest Game Ever were all dead. DEAD! You know what, I hate you, go away.

I think it's where we see the difference between a fun game and a real classic...Chrono Trigger's still such a classic. Just hearing the music brings back good memories...and I still haven't finished my DS version just cause I don't want to be finished with it (well, with new game +, you never are, but whatevs...). But realizing that a lot of RPGs that came out of Japan were, well, trash. I hate to say it, but even the great FFVII really isn't that great 15 or so years down the road...it's actually really goofy. XD

yeah... I never got it, and had the misfortune of playing it ~5 years after it came out and expecting something good. the animation was just painful. cloud is so much less appealing pixelated.
