[community profile] moogle_university is starting a ten month replay of Final Fantasy games up through X, at least, with commentary, liveblogging, and gamer geeking. I want to join them. I don't know if I'll have time, but it's too fun an opportunity to miss.

So, ganking their introductory post, here's my pre-playthrough answers for Final Fantasy I:

Have you ever played this game before? If so, what versions?
Nope. Utter tabula rasa. All I know is that there's probably going to be four Warriors of Light, crystals, and a buttload of level grinding and random encounters.

What version are you playing this time?
FInal Fantasy [I] for iPad. I've already forgotten which remake this is, but I'm guessing it's the Origins 20th annivesary version.

Do you have a fannish history with this game? If so, what?
Nada. See above.

What are your expectations for this playthrough? (Things you've heard from other fans you want to look for, things you want to prove/disprove, etc.)
I'm just hoping I'll have the patience to finish. I know the first game didn't have much story, and I prefer more story. But mindless level grinding can be fun. I expect some personal flashbacks to the original Might & Magic, which I adored, Rogue, and maybe even Temple of Apshai (I am dating myself, but that was my first real computer game RPG on my old Apple ][+, and I still remember the fake old English shopkeeper and the dorky ant men.)

Okay! So, time to head to the app store and buy it. Cue the retro gamer nostalgia!

EDIT: Click here to read the first session of my FFI playthrough...with silly commentary and screenshots!

omg i need to do this.

Although I own (or think I own???) FFI, this is the one FF game I have never even booted up once to see the opening.

(Dives under the bed to fish around for my box of games and power up my psp!)

Origins is technically not the 20th anniversary; from the screencaps in your other post, though, it is the 20th anniversary PSP port (which is what I'm playing, as distinct from the Origins PSX variant later ported to PSP, which is what Sev's playing. XD WE HAVE A POST IN THE WORKS ABOUT VERSIONS. OH DO WE.)

Retro gamer nostalgiaaaaa~
