I counting this for the whole handheld series. Their are very addicting, even after beating the story. You can collect, raise your Pokemon, and go on wi-fi to trade/battle on later games in the series. For this one I got in over 900 hours.
This, 3, 4, and Vice City are really addicting. There a lot you can do in the games even if you not doing any story missions. You can explore the map, cause chaos, do side missions for money and much more.
This is alot of fun. While the story may not be good as the others in the series. It's the gameplay what made this. It's engaging and fast paced and have you favorite music tracks from the past FF's. I spent alot of it leveling up everyone and making videos on some of the battles I have.
This is a very fascinating game to play. You need the spellbook that you get with the game to cast spells on parts. The turn based battles are simple, and you capture this creatures that you can evolve like Pokemon by taking care of them, giving food they like, and leveling up.
This and Persona 4 are ones that you get into alot of times. There are tons of social links to find while collecting Personas to aid you. Even the stories are really good that draws you into their world. Even after beating P3, I'm playing new game plus collecting the SL I missed in my first play through.
