    Final Fantasy V: The RPG That Bullies You

    I have a somewhat odd history with Final Fantasy V. Technically, it was the first game in the series I ever played; I would play it a fair bit when I was a kid. But I had never actually finished it. In fact, I never even got that far; I’d get to the ship graveyard […]

Final Fantasy 1 was a solid start to the series, if a bit rough around the edges. Unfortunately, Final Fantasy 2, while ambitious for its […]
