I want Kristen Bell. I want Anonymous Losers to stop stalking me. I'll settle for Kristen Bell, the stalkers never stop anyway!

It doesn't get better than FF6. Okay, maybe it does. But not to me. This is where Final Fantasy peaked as a series. There were 12 (14) characters, each with unique personality traits and battle commands that helped the party in a variety of situations. Some were a bit cumbersome to use if you weren't good with a controller (Blitz) or slow and almost useless (SwdTech/Bushido) but every character had something that made them unique.

Of course, the game also allowed you to use "Espers" that would teach your character every magic spell in the game if you took the time to gather all the Espers and run through enough battles to get those spells learned. But it wasn't that simple; some characters had better magic stats than others. 

If you taught a character with a low magic rating spells, it wouldn't help them that much. Sure, they could cure their allies or blast foes with lightning/fire/ice... but they were probably better off attacking with their weapons or using their unique skill given the stats they had.

This was the first FF that finally broke away from the more linear design. For the first time, you could actually switch out party members and even do things in a different order.

This is a great game and even though some may dislike the design on the Android/Steam/iOs version of the game, the fact is that is probably the most accessible version. If you want an experience more like the original game in terms of the graphics, I would recommend the original game. Emulators work well enough though if you don't like that you might have a hard time tracking down the cartridge.

The version you can buy on the Playstation Network has some bad loading times even on PS3/PS4. 

The Gameboy Advance game is nice as well though the music is slightly off compared to the SNES.
