So, to put it bluntly... does it have a proper story? Don't get me wrong, this isn't a jab at the series. Its just Ive never played any FF games prior to 7 (we didnt get them on the snes here when i was a young lad), and I recently got final Fantasy 1 for the psp, and while the retro graphics and animations (or lack of) dont bother me (in fact it looks suprisingly crisp), the complete lack of a story or characters does. The game makes you create4 characters and basically just says "ok youre the 4 heroes, go" with little story, reason or even DIRECTION of where to go or what to do. This really threw me for a loop, and looking at screens of FF4 Complete for psp, i see the graphics look about the same, so im wondering if the lack of story and/or characters is the same.
I know FF6 (and 5?) are considered some of the best FF games, and i know those are...proper games, for lack of a better word, im just not sure if FF4 is aswell. I want to buy it now that it got a price drop but not if its like FF1. Apreacite the help bombers.
