Final Fantasy Tactics, Part 4 - Queklain's Tinnitus

 Previously on Final Fantasy Tactics... I defeated Gaffgarion at Golgorand Execution Site, one of the toughest fights in the game. Now, I take a moment to fondly look back on the awesome cover art. It made a strong impression on me when I was younger, even though it lied about the five-character party. A lot of these battles only allow four characters! Da hell, Square?

The battle for Ivalice continues with the remainder of chapter one. In this one, I level up Ramza, murder my other party members, and deal with the bastardly Argath.

Final Fantasy Tactics (Playstation, 1998 / PSP, 2007)

 This is one of my favorite games of all time. I played it in early 1998 on the original Playstation, and it was a magical gaming experience. The great soundtrack and the unparalleled atmosphere gave it an edge over other strategy RPGs, while the gameplay and class/ability system were super-compelling and fun. Best of all, it doesn't have that stupid Judge system from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. If you've only played those games, do yourself a favor and check out the original. This where it's at.

It got a PSP remake in 2007, which I've never beaten, so that's what I'm on now. With a redone translation and some new additions like cutscenes and optional endgame stuff, this should be well worth a playthrough for me.
