I remember getting royally owned in Shining Force 2 - never been a tactics-guy. As such, I have tremendous problems with every strategy-game ever made. Hm... I wonder if perhaps Independence War/I-War is the most absolute difficult game I've ever played? I'm not usually THAT badly owned in space-flight games, but then, it relies on tactics and imagination.
Or maybe it's Lock-On or Falcon 4[variant x]... The Myst-series doesn't count, does it?
OT - Heh, sweet, just noticed I'm a 'Cool newbie'!
Well, gee, I've only been poking around here since Jenova was in development, first dipping my toes in FF when FFVIII PC was still somewhat new...
