This is my first time EVER trying Final Fantasy V. So far I LOVE this game. I played 4&6 as a kid. (named 2&3 in usa) And this has been like getting to play a classic that I never got around to. Beautiful sprite art, music and an all around great experience. I also like the “jobs” feature quite a bit.
Also, I know some people are surprised when I play JRPGs because often I have problems with cut scenes and heavy text. Here is a blog post I wrote on the subject to hopefully clear up my feelings because it’s a somewhat involved answer.
