Day 3: A game that is underrated.
Final Fantasy IV. FFVI introduced me to the series, and I didn’t play FFIV until many years after that. IV is woefully left out in many Final Fantasy discussions, and it’s a masterpiece. It’s the first game in the series to have an actual cohesive plot line and legitimate characters instead of stand ins. The main character Cecil experiences character development along with his adoptive brother Kain (who is arguably the most screwed over person in the game). The music is phenomenal and some of the fan art I’ve seen should be hung in museums.
I think the game is getting more play (heh) now because the internet exists and fans of it can extol its virtues, but it’s really a shame it was lost in the shuffle that included VI and VII when those remained popular even after more Final Fantasies were released.
I blanked a bit on what games are underrated, and I’ll probably think of more now that I’ve posted this, so any others you can think of for discussion would make the comment section much more lively!
