David's Wonderful Mind
I can see why it’s considered a classic.I have just beaten Final Fantasy 4. A year ago, in April, I started my Final Fantasy journey, and a year ago this month I took a break when FF4 got a little too challenging for me. It was a lot to take on, a big difficulty spike. But finally, I returned, hoping to finally be done with it, finally move on. And I am happy that those things are, at least, true, but I’m also happy that I got to experience the game after all.
Maybe I would have had a better time on a different version of the game. Maybe I wouldn’t have taken such a long break. But it doesn’t matter now, what’s done is done. And this game was absolutely beautiful, in the end. I truly appreciate the gift that this game is.(It certainly helped that, when returning to FF1 to do the Hellfire Grotto which contained FF4 bosses, I got a taste of exactly how far the series has come. I mean, really, making a floor just to have an encounter every step? Being able to hold the action button down to get through every battle?)I started up Interlude tonight, saved as soon as I could. Gonna really start on The After Years tomorrow, and I am psyched.

After a year long break, I will finally be beating this excruciatingly hard game (over stream) in just a few hours. And I can finally continue my Final Fantasy journey. Tonight, I hope to show off the two secret bosses of the DS version before fighting the final and watching the ending, and then I shall play the secret dungeon of FF1’s PSP version that contains bosses from this game. Finally, I hope to have time to start the Interlude post-side-story on the PSP version of this game, and maybe even the After Years post-side-story, depending on how short Interlude is.
All I have to say right now is, don’t take this game lightly if you ever get to playing it. It’s an awesome game, but the difficulty will kick your ass if you’re not ready to bring some strategy to the table.

A great remix of the most iconic song, in my opinion, of FF4. The original reminds me of FF7.

This song took a while to grow on me, but it’s easily a favorite of the series. Been whistling it randomly.
