Emotions. (Contain slight FFX spoilers)

Besides getting my ass handed to me by difficult bosses (Seymour Flux is the hardest I've faced so far, I despise this guy), up to this moment in this adventure, this game has left a lasting impact on my emotions. I'm just contstantly feeling like I'm on the verge of tears everytime I think to the story that has unfolded so far in this adventure. As I scaled Gagazet Mountain, the music had me ready to just cry. I felt this underlying sadness in it, as if everything these cast of characters have gone through was about to amount to little. Mostly, I just felt a mixture of happiness and sorrow for Tidus and Yuna, it brings me back to Final Fantasy 8 and Rinoa and Squall. The theme of love has been one storyline element in both of these games that have teared at me mentally and emotionally. It's one thing that makes these games remarkable, and unforgetable. I can hope for a happy ending, but...something just feels amiss.

While I still drone on about how these games affect my emotional status, so far Final Fantasy X exceeded my expectations. It's an incredible game so far, mostly due to it's remarkable storyline, and excellent gameplay and beautiful graphics. The games difficulty can seem a tad daunting, but it's not an impossible game by any means. It's hard to a point that you have a certain satisfaction when you get past a boss, even if it seems hopeless.

This is Seymour Flux: Frustrating boss, but I beat him anyhow:D.
And... this is a quote from Gamespot I made many months ago:{Quote}As I will point out again, Final Fantasy 8 ironically is the only game I think I have ever played that has knocked up my emotions and tied me to the game itself. I had a rather odd attachment to the characters, and their fictional lives and personalities. And the absolutely powerful storyline made the game easily one of the most amazing I have ever played, not to mention the excellent gameplay and graphics. So, it's safe to say if I ever got FFX, I'd probably be dumbstruck all over again {Unquote}.

I was right. I am dumbstruck. Tomorrow, I play more Final Fantasy X. And beat Seymour...cheating bastard.

EDIT: I beat Seymour Flux, hell yes.

I agree about FFVIII.  That game was amazing, I was so absolutely absorbed in that game the first time I played it (december 2007) that I was completely floored by it, and by the time it was over I couldn't even summarize how I felt about it, that is how good it was.

...and yeah, Seymour Flux is a fucking BASTARD.  I died on him several times the first time I ever played through FFX, I remember I actually beat him using gil toss -_-

Just wait, Verdugo.  It gets better.

I remember Flux, I remember getting my ass handed to me every time. Then I literally spent a month playing that game, and training in the Calm Lands. By the time I figured I was able to go back and fight him again, I beat him in like 10 minutes probably? Maybe more, I'm not sure.
