Yeah, about my play of FFVI: It's my first pre-PS1 FF and I was thrown by the difficulty of the game compared to FFVII and beyond. I'm still chugging along, and thanks to my completionist habits, it'll probably keep me busy until XIV comes out, knowing SE.
Considering I beat FFXII again in the time it took me to make my first post in this thread, and the day it is now, I'd say VI is definitely hard. But I'm enjoying it a lot; it's quickly turning into my favourite FF.
Now to find Xenogears!
