    Final Fantasy IX (Remaster)

    "The fun and magic that made the game memorable are still present, but also improved upon in many meaningful ways."

    I finished high school about 15 years ago, as of this writing. My memories of those days are fond, talking Magic: The Gathering and video games and just letting my nerd flag fly. My friends and I reveled in the golden age of RPGs, so the work of Squaresoft was a hot topic for us. One particular quote from my good friend Eric, which I can only paraphrase, has always stuck with me, as he summed up the three main Final Fantasy entries of the era:

    "Final Fantasy VII is like an anime, VIII is the emo afterschool special, and IX is the Saturday morning cartoon."

    I did not play Final Fantasy IX for many years after high school, and I could only question why it took me so long when I eventually did! Final Fantasy IX was a truly magical experience that returned to the roots of fantasy established in the first entry of the series. Bright and bouncy, with a decent level of drama and a memorable cast, the game lived up to my friend Eric's assessment at the time. However, a little older and wiser though I may be, I'm not sure his reductive statement holds true anymore.

    Score: 90/100
