Add me to the legion of CAGs putting in a good word for Critter Crunch. Great game and even better for $1.
I really hated Tetra Master. Triple Triad was so simple and fun but if we are talking about mini/side games, Blitzball was the best. I didn't like X that much but I played the shit out of Blitzball.
Me, too! I played the shit out of Blitzball and didn't even play all the way to the end of X. X was the first FF I played for more than a few hours until I beat XIII, too (I had a roommate in college who played the shit out of VII and I felt like I had played it for hours without even having done so as a result). Of course, this puts me in the rare (and awesome) position to play through all of the originals and enjoy them as a noob.
As such, I picked up I+II, III, IV, VI, VII, VIII, IX, [duodecim] and the prologue in this week's sale. I already have FFT: War of the Lions from being a Plus member.
I'm making myself get through Growlanser before I start them, though.
