SE has such a way of sending meteors crashing down around you, destroying so much of what you’ve helped put effort in…… and yet you still sit there just simply amazed with your jaw on the floor just really wanting to find out more, questioning everything. I remember in 1.0 coming to learn that all the work we put in to stop the Meteor project was all for naught and that some of the things we did actually ended up only serving to help us lose……..They work hard to keep this Warrior of Light humble…. We are not always the saviors… sometimes its us that needs some saving.
The sky has fallen once again, only more in a figurative way this time and I’m now even more anxious to find out how things will be “fixed”… IF things can be “fixed”, and starting to distrust this false sense of security we get from time to time from thinking we’ve helped. Sometimes things we feel so strongly, as being what seems like the “right thing to do” ends up working against our goals later on.. but this is Final Fantasy, and I think that is just part of its charm.. their storytelling makes you think.. makes you analyze.. and sometimes even helps you learn moral lessons that you can even relate to reality.
While your character is “special” Square still keep things very “human” in many regards, and they never let the stories they tell get so crazy that if you see them through to the end, that all your choices were the perfect ones to make. Fantasy that makes you reflect… its really an amazing thing and one of the reasons I’m such a fan.
