Oh god don't even get me started on that maddening card game in FF8.. I logged over 100 hours of my life on that damned thing... Grrr I want them back!
As far as getting Knights of the Round in FF7, well I guess I'm evil. I used a game genie to get it. I had to know how much butt it kicked! definetely my favorite power!
I stopped playing Zork after Grand Inquisiter. I'm not certain if there is even a new one out after that anyway. I liked Return to Zork but I was never into the text adventures. Too bad too considering how much better they sounded..
As for RPG's, Ultima VIII and IX just sucked terribly. Those were some of the more disappointing games I've ever played. I never got into Might and Magic. I've always heard how much fun they were too. I loved playing Shining Force on Sega Genesis. Those types of games need to come back big time...
I still love playing old school nintendo and arcade games via emulators... I was heavily into the emulation scene about 7 years ago before it got out of control with pirating N64 stuff... not that I'm not guilty of pirating stuff myself... ah but that's another topic altogether...
