This game is often discussed in the same breath as Square's other powerhouse RPG series, Final Fantasy, and has stuck with people thanks to a timeless visual style that still looks stunning over two decades later.

**Catch the game live with Nick as he usually streams the Revival Club games on Tuesday nights at 9:00pm CST. This game will be in play through the end of June 2022.
