Well I kinda feel that video games are becoming more and more exclusive as a medium. Its already a fairly expensive hobby anyways. The base line to play new console games cost 300 dollars just for the hardware. And that's not counting the price of games. Its probably continue since I doubt the people who make games and consoles actually can relate to those that can't pay for these things. Its becoming more like the tennis of digital hobbies.
@hailinel: Not the guy who voted for WoL. But I suppose self-insertion? I mean, WoL is just a base character that is open for interpretation. So maybe that, or someone just being a smart ass about the topic.
Typing this made me realize that I would really enjoy a serious retelling (reinterpreting) of the original game. (That one specifically, since you can argue that most of the other FF games are retellings of that game). Something a bit more serious, since there is already a comedic version of that game. (8-bit theater)
