Before I begin, let me re-iterate I’ve taken a break from watching superhero movies since X-Men: Days of Future Past. I have not watched anything following that, and I skipped seeing Days of Future Past in theatres. I have not watched Guardians of the Galaxy or Avengers: Age of Ultron.

This is an introspective I’m doing for Final Fantasy III, better known as Final Fantasy VI for the Super Nintendo. While the game was first released in Japan on April 2, 1994 and I first owned it on December 24, 1994, the North American release was on October 20, 1994. That’s a good place for North American readers to go back 20 years ago to when they first could play the game. I’ll be discussing everything from my thoughts of playing the game again to its impact on the industry to why more games should be like Final Fantasy VI. Enjoy #FFVI20Years
