Games I beat in 2017: #6 Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
There was a twelve hour challenge two months back. It's an interesting idea. Spend twelve hours learning how to speedrun a game. I decided to participate, but I couldn't do a solid 12-hour chunk, nor could I do it around the time. Who cares. I decided to spend twelve hours learning the Final Fantasy Mystic Quest speed run. And I got it. Not a ""respectable"" time, but I finished it and had some fun replaying a game I claim to like a lot.
And I still like it a lot.
There are a few bugs in the game, mostly doing with under and overflows because you can buy 0 of an item in a shop. A simple miss on the part of the programmers, but with this someone figured out that allows you to bypass a chunk of the game.
It’s these sort of things that remind me how human the “mythical beings" behind making games are. It reminds me to lower my own standards a little bit. Mistakes may be there, and they may just let people enjoy the game in a different way!
