    Sidequests & subgames

    JRPGs are traditionally known for having subgames/sidequests of surprising variety. Some of them are even so deep and intricate, they could very well have been standalone games!

    Which subgames have been your favourites so far? Have you ever spent MORE time on a subgame than the actual RPG itself?

    My favourite subgames have usually been those featured in the Final Fantasy series. There have been some really great ones over the years, but two really stand out:

    Triple Triad from Final Fantasy VIII. I could never get into the card game in FFIX, but Triple Triad was simply great. Spent a LOT of time playing it and collecting all the cards.

    Blitzball from Final Fantasy X. Call me a masochist, but I actually liked Blitzball.

    There are some others as well. Quite a few fishing quests in various RPGs were actually pretty good.


    All the sidequests involving obtaining the ultimate weapons in FFX, on the other hand, were terrible. I'd rather have an elephant step on my balls rather than go through that crap again.

    Triple Triad was great fun, and also Xenosaga Episode 1 included a cool card game. I thought Harrison would get a Triple Triad version for the board Is there still a version available??

    I was also ace at Blitzball and played a lot, but you have to admit that it gets tedious with the time.

    I'm still waiting for it to be finished, then it will be installed on the forum for us all to compete against each other. The developers decided to start again rather than update the older vB version of the game which no longer worked with the current vB version. This new version is now meant to be progressing very well and will hopefully be released in the next months.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
