System: PS1 (also on PSN’s PSOne classics)
Developer: Game Arts
Despite complaining about it beforehand, I actually ended up enjoying the game after all. For the record I first reached the final dungeon at around 40 hours in, and while it was not a particularly long or difficult dungeon, I had so much fun grinding up the weapon and magic levels for each character. Once I realized what the game truly had to offer was right in front of me all this time, I came to like it quite a bit. Grinding up your magic levels to see what new skills you’d learn is fun, probably the same type of enjoyment I get out of catching and levelling Pokemon.
