    Default The "Real" Console Wars... as told through FF6

    Holy great mother of God. People have too much time on their hands.

    If you like FF6, and you like video game consoles (hey, it's Digital Press), check this out.

    Don't fret the fact that the writing isn't in English. I'm hardly multilingual, aside from the fact that I speak a little German, and I could still fully appreciate the flash movie for its visual appeal and humor.

    Be warned though. This thing... is long. It's totally worth watching the whole thing though, I promise.

    See if you can spot all of the game consoles and which characters from FF6 they're representing. I can tell you nearly all of them. Although, I actually can't tell what systems Phunbaba and Ultros are. Maybe someone else can help me there.

    A dedicated group of Japanese people obviously spent an emormous ammount of time putting this together, so take a few minutes and look at their masterpiece.

    Ahh, I love it! I wish there was a way to slow it way down, so I could tell you what more of it meant. From what I can decipher, a lot of the systems' attacks are games and features of it - the Dreamcast attacks with Soul Caliber, the Xbox has a revival move called "Live", etc. It's damned cool.

    Boy do I wish that I could read (or speack for that matter) Japanese. Despite only being able to watch though it was very funny.
