I haven't posted much lately. I have been playing FFXI a good bit, but just haven't felt inspired, I guess. So, I just wanted to mention that if ~10 year old game reviews irk you that GameSpot has your number. They reviewed the first Persona, Legend of Legaia, and Suikoden. If you aren't a crazy person, and have played all of those games, then you know the only one you would tell someone you don't hate to play would be Suikoden. It was an awesome RPG. So, guess which got the lowest rating by GameSpot? Suikoden.
If you're looking for old JRPGs to play through I wouldn't put GameSpot review scores as a point in your purchasing decision.
