Now that you mentioned it @Emma kwamboka, I think the first time I played FF was also at my friend place. I recall it was a great evening, and needless to say I bought the game for myself shortly after.
Yeah, many of us have discovered FF and other games through friends @itsmenermin. That is why making a good game is the best advertising, we will just recommend it to our friends and invite them to play too.
Yes, I have experienced that a lot. There are some games I am excellent at playing today. I can recall before I started with them I had the fear I wouldn't be able to understand the games let alone playing good.
My brothers used to play FF and I used to watch it. Being a mama's girl, I never wanted to go away from her and divert my mind from her. But gradually, when I saw the FF games, I started enjoying them and I automatically got involved in it.
Gradually, I found that I am loving some games like Kingdom Hearts and am also falling in love with the characters of the game. So, it worked fantasy for me!
It took me more than two years after the release of the final fantasy xii to begin playing the game. I think that was in 2012 or there abouts and I have to confess that it was a good experience for me in the sense that I found way to defeat the characters on found in most of the cities.
