"Final Fantasy Tactics could have been more than a cult classic, but its reputation for unforgiving combat precedes it."
Squaresoft brought its A-game and tour-de-force talent, birthing a franchise that has won accolades from players and critics alike. Its remaster for the PlayStation Portable and unlikely follow-up on the Gameboy Advance entranced its audience even though it hasnít had any further direct sequels, though there are a number of spin offs set in the same universe. This is another genre that doesnít sell particularly well in the West in spite of a large dedicated fanbase, and dangit, why not? As it turns out, the answers are pretty self explanatory when viewed through the lenses of my frustration and anger.
Ivalice is a high fantasy world, a portion of which is embroiled in Lions War, a conflict between two noble families and the politics that buoy them. You assume the role of Ramza, the innocent, kind son of the Hokuten and an unsung hero who commands a force of warriors that you train up from their humble beginnings as Squire, the formative baseline job for all subsequent jobs. I'll get to that later.

At some point you stop justifying what you play and begin to realize what you're learning by playing.
