If you’re like me, you spent last Friday night at a Selena tribute concert in Orlando, Florida. But what do you do when you arrive 90 minutes early and need to kill time? The obvious answer: blast Stormtroopers in the new Star Wars virtual-reality simulator, Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire!
At a couple points throughout my gaming history I had tried to play Final Fantasy I. I thought I had made decent progress into the story, and I was excited to kick of 2019’s Final Fantasy Challenge with the original title.
This classic was originally released in 1987 on the Nintendo Entertainment System. As a well-known advocate of forsaking retro games to play modern classics, how would this old-school tale strike me?
Gaming has been a personal passion since the first time I saw an arcade in a mall. I have owned every major console released since the Sega Genesis, with the exception of the original XBox. For me, a Saturday spent playing video or board games with my wife or a few close friends would always be more appealing than a night out. Gaming is, and always will be a part of me.
