I remember being fascinated by Fantasy themed (role playing) games way back before I even understood what Fantasy was. I remember playing the original Final Fantasy at a friend's house and they were all wondering why loved the game so much. Why watch 1 of 4guys walk forward and show his sword twice when you can play games like Super Mario Bros or Ikari Warriors or an other action-packed game. \
Besides my love of the fantasy theme, I had the whole battle play out in my head every time. I especially remember playing through Dragon Warrior (on my own, since my friends couldn't appreciate these types of games) and fighting the last dragon at the end. Back in the day it looked like this:
I really enjoyed that last battle, where I saw my character dodging and weaving while slashing at the dragon and blocking it's fiery breath. I specifically remember the phrase: Fireballs sprout from your fingertips, and I remember seeing in my head my character pointing his hand at the dragon as fireballs sped to my arch-nemesis.
I am so happy to be able to experience this fantasy-scene in my head come to live in games like Dragon Age and World of Warcraft and such. I haven't reached this part yet, but I came across a dragon-battle in Dragon-Age: Origins on youtube an this is exactly how I imagined these battles would be like back in the day. (minus the pausing of course:))
As I said before, I haven't reached that part yet but when I do...Man is it going to be sweet!!
