After Final Fantasy?

I’m probably somewhere between 50-75% done with Final Fantasy, but I’m already wondering what game to play after I beat it. I could go straight to Final Fantasy II, but I think I’d prefer to mix it up.

I might play Fez next. I played the first few levels and I really want to get back to it. I don’t know how well it will translate to blog entries, though.

Another game that I am itching to play is Oblivion. I played it years ago and got hooked. I don’t remember why I quit, but I know that I didn’t finish the main quest. But I played that game a lot.

I should also get to Dragon Age soon. I’ve been borrowing that from a friend for at least a year. Probably more like 2 years.

On the other hand, I’ll be traveling in a month, so I’ll want to be sure that I’m playing a handheld game at that point. Maybe Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest: Rocket Slime, Puzzle Quest or Professor Layton and the Unwound Future for Nintendo DS.

I’m fairly far along in Layton. I don’t think there’s much to write about with that game, though: “I solved this puzzle. Don’t want to give it away. Oh, and I solved another puzzle. Don’t want to give that away either”. Maybe the “one game at a time” rule can be bent for puzzle games?

I played a lot of Rocket Slime several years ago, but I’d start over now. I remember it being fun. Puzzle Quest is one that my wife played and enjoyed. I’ve never played it, as far as I recall.

Finally, there’s Chrono Trigger. I have attempted that game many times. I played the original on my SNES. I think I borrowed it from a friend’s brother back in the late 90s. I also own the Playstation port that was packaged with Final Fantasy IV as Final Fantasy Chronicles. As I said, I started it many, many times. I’ll probably get deja vu for the first half of the game. I really don’t remember how much of it I beat.

I actually did beat its sequel, Chrono Cross.

I’m leaning toward Chrono Trigger or Rocket Slime. Ugh, I don’t know. Well, I still have a while to decide.

Maybe I should come up with a way to play these systematically.
