I don't have a lot of time on my hands any more due to my job, but I've been looking into replaying some classic Final Fantasy games (I call them commitment games) with a "theme", for a lack of a better way to put it.
By "theme", I mean something like, but not limited to:
1) FF3: least steps
2) FF7: no materia
3) FF8: no drawing / no GF
4) Resident Evil 4: no merchant / knife only (except against bosses which must be killed with firearms)
Personally, there are a few Final Fantasy games which cannot hold my attention. Namely, FF1, FF2, FF9 (I hate that I have to learn skills from my equipment), FF12 (battle system turns me off).
If anyone has personally done a nice themed-run of a Final Fantasy game, post it and give me some insight into its difficulty and fun-factor. I've been thinking of doing this for far too long, and some advice would be appreciated.
