    I was making solid progress in FF XIII then cracked a rib snowboarding. I never touched FF XIII again which was a good thing in my opinion.

    And thank goodness for that. I've had more enjoyment from his games then almost any other game creators with the possible exception of Miyamoto and Sid Meier.
    This.
    I really love certain Final Fantasy games (VI, VII, VIII and X). And the rest I can take or leave. The only DQ games I didn't totally fall in love with was VII and much of that had to do with the timing of the US release. The PS2 was starting to hit its stride and the Gamecube had just launched with one of the best launch games of all time. Five hours into DQVII and put it down for good in favor of the new and shiny.
    I still can't get over the narrative impact of DQ IVs structure. It was the first time that I'd experienced an RPG that provided context for why this team was joining up to go adventuring. Even when I played tabletop RPGs we had the bare minimum to our backstory (if any). Here was a major section of the game spending time building up the characters motivation and bringing them together. It's not the best entry in the series from a gameplay perspective but it's the one I return to most often because of this narrative element. Thank goodness for the DS port since my two NES copies don't always save successfully.

    I just finished The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson a sort-of follow-up to he much earlier Notes From a Small Island. Enjoyable and funny. If you've never read Bryson before, I wouldn't start here though if you enjoy his travel writing then jump right in.

    I have a few melamine mixing bowls but they don't have the long term durability of my stainless steel or ceramic bowls. I actually only have one from the set of three left. Granted, most of them lasted  about ten years but my steel bowls are almost 15 years old and my ceramic bowls will out survive me.
    Plastic is shit.

    Back to the topic: my first game in either series was Dragon Quest IV and I've preferred it, in general, ever since. It's a tough comparison though since DQ games tend to come out less frequently. And they couldn't be more different. DQ is all about amazing gameplay and FF is all about crystals and buckles and Wedge and Biggs and whatnot.

    True.
    I won in the end that day. My mom was really embarrassed and gave me a $20 to get out of their hair while he calmed down which I promptly spent play Popeye in the hotel's arcade. Nintendo's Popeye > Risk.

    I'm not one for policing threads but I can get behind this policy. That way I don't have to look at Satoshi's creepy and perverted posts.

    Those two cheat even worse than you. And I'm too busy singing songs and hitting on my wife to cheat...hence my amazing consistency.

    You dad's drywall experience reminds me of the time my dad realized he could no longer beat my brother in Risk. We were on vacation and he threw the table across the room. We never played Risk again.

    That's odd, since mine was a tongue-in-cheek response. Of course Gokie's was correct. He may be a cheater at Gran Turismo, but he knows how to pronounce hacker aliases.
