heh, oh trust me I'm an FFX fan. I'm looking forward to playing FFX-2 when I get home. still I don't mind only having a few choices. to be honest, when I played FFX I cross-skilled almost everyone as early as I could. I prefer everyone to have the same options, especially in battle. The one thing that has annoyed me so far is when you equip people with something and they leave the party that item leaves with them. That is MEGA annoying to me, and one of my gaming pet peeves.
Ah well, I'm still having fun with it, and I prolly would have stayed up late playing it too if we hadn't gotten a rocket attack last night.
I'm getting better at dealing with the Gambit system. I also LOVE chaining. I can chain for hours. It makes leveling up really easy. frankly I can't remember the last time I played a FF game had this little difficulty leveling. I wait impatiently at work until I can leave and play some more.
