** As a 2000's-born troper, I can consider myself blessed that I got the opportunity to play ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. I was so impressed with the plot that I now want to become a plot writer for video games in general! I pretty much owe almost all my appreciation for old games (especially JRPGs!) to this game (and maybe {{ChronoTrigger}}, too.).

** I'm not exaggerating when I say that Kingdom Hearts may be the one thing that helped me the most develop as a person. Before I left for college, I was in a serious funk, not knowing really who I was. My dorm's lounge had a PS2 bolted to the floor, and after watching some friends play [=KH2=], I thought I'd give it a try. I ''LOVED'' it. By the time I had finished, I was no longer ashamed of my love of Disney or video games. Before, I was very "closeted" about my hobbies and my nostalgia, but playing [=KH2=], with my friends watching and cheering me on, made me much more open about them and ProudToBeAGeek.

** ''Chrono Trigger'' is basically a nerd's wet dream come true. Featuring Akira Toriyama (Best known for Dragon Ball and Dr. Slump) as the character designer and artist, Yuji Horii (Dragon Quest) and Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy) as designers, and Yasunori Mitsuda (Xenogear, Mario Party) and Nobou Uematsu (Final Fantasy) as composers, that alone should convince any reader to buy this game straight onto their PSP or DS or iOS or [=PS3=] or Wii or even (My favorite of all) the SNES off of Amazon. Though be warning the PS1/3/P versions have slow loading times. Also, if you hear the terms "New game+" or "multiple endings" and don't immediately think of this game, then you obviously haven't played it.

* ''{{Terranigma}}'' is a truly amazing game that sadly gets far too little recognition. The story is great, the gameplay is enormously fun, the music is excellent, and it has possibly the most touching BittersweetEnding of any game out there.

* ''KingdomHearts'' has its flaws, like everything else. I won't deny that- heck, even I'm getting frustrated with Creator/SquareEnix for not being consistent with the canon. But the series has still been fun to play for me, and even though the retcons get irritating and the Nobodies needed to be explained better I even enjoy the story. It's Disney without being overly kiddy (definitely a dose of sugar and light, yes, but not overly dumbed down or TastesLikeDiabetes) and that makes my inner child {{squee}}.

** The thing is, Disney's brand of feel-good ''isn't'' the TastesLikeDiabetes kind, really, and the fact that Mickey Mouse works so well as a BadassLongcoat proves it. The ''KingdomHearts'' franchise reminds us all of why we like Disney movies in the first place.

** I also love the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games. The new games coming out might be iffy (due to Square messing up canon) but the first ''KingdomHearts'', ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'', and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' are pretty much the most amazing games ever made! They combine the Disney of my childhood with stuff I'm into now almost perfectly. Major awesomeness!

**** Nah, the original KingdomHearts will always be the best KH game of all time for me. Everyone knows that the FirstInstallmentWins.

** I just loved the magic-based puzzles in Kingdom Hearts(the first), though many were optional they were fun to find and only required common sense to complete(like using thunder on the broken wire in Traverse Town, or casting stop on the Big Ben to halt Phantom's doom spell). And magic was so well detailed in a subtle way, like using it on the fireplace in Cid's accessory shop(while the fireplace didn't actually affect anything and wasn't even a puzzle it could still be lit by fire or put out by blizzard and the smoke stack would either release smoke when you went outside or not accordingly).

** In [[{{Tropers/VillainFan42}} this troper's]] humble opinion, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is not only the MagnumOpus of the series, but of gaming in general. In addition to what the above tropers brought up, I really enjoyed the Magicite system, allowing the player to fully customize which characters learned what magic and make a diverse party of characters, each with their own role and abilities, rather than making the party members interchangeable like Materia ended up doing. In addition, the [[{{Main/Woolseyism}} brilliant SNES dub]] is always a treat.

* ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' may not be able to stand up to the likes of ''VideoGame/StreetFighter'' or ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'', but it's a delightful fighting game all the same, pitting the heavy-hitters from every FF game up to its release in high-flying high-energy duels. ''Dissidia 012'' refined the formula even more, on top of adding more fan favorites to the roster.

** This troper wouldn't neccesarilly ''mind'' a VII remake...but ALSO for the love of all that's reasonable, ''please'' don't retcon stuff or tie it into the [[FanNickname complication]], Square!

** Of special note, I have to quote ''WebVideo/ExtraCredits'' when they mentioned the social boss battles. Hopefully they'll make the rest of the game companies sit up and take notice that wittleing away at a life bar isn't the only way to have a satisfying, pulse pounding confrontation with an antagonist.
