    I have the PSP tactics game, I want to get the PSP FFVII side story game.

    I have never played the original FFT. So far, I like the writing.

    I do not like Final Fantasy

    way overrated

    also all the boys look like girls

    now I have no problem with male heroes who are not brutish space marines in tank armor and a gun that screams overcompensation
