So I finally finished X. It was pretty solid, but I have some grievances. For one, I really don't like most of the characters, save for Yuna and Auron. I also feel like the story was pretty weak at times, especially when it tries to be overly complicated (not complex) or deviates from the main focus of stopping Sin. Finally, the difficulty curve is all over the place, more particularly, from when you hit Mt. Gagazet to the end. Outside of that, again, it's pretty solid. The gameplay's fun, the story (despite issues) is interesting and overall I was pretty engaged with it. Now the question is do I carry onto X-2 or start VIII...
Doesn't matter how many times I play and finish this, nothing will ever prepare me for the hotel basementSelect text to reveal spoiler

Seeing how games (and myself) have changed since from when this released, it was interesting to come back to it. Yes it was still fun. I sunk a good 50 or so hours into it. With that in mind however, it is very much a product of its time and there is a reason we moved on. A lot of the mission/level design and certain elements of gameplay are frankly outdated, not just by the standards of the series, but gaming as a whole. It was impressive for its time and it is still damn fun, this goes without question, but it's not the timeless classic so many people try and make it out to be. It's alright to be nostalgic, but people should try to play or remember games like this without getting swept up in their memories (this goes triple for Ocarina of Time).
