You know my biggest gripe with that era till the current era (playstation) is always going to be insane amount of load times and yes I do remember it being horrible. It really does need makeover for the modern era just make that bearable.
With their release on the Switch, I played FFIX and FFX back to back and the difference in load time and overall speed of battle between both games is huge! I dreaded battles in FFIX because of how really incredibly slow everything is, from loading the battle, to the camera panning around 5 times and even after inputting a command the character readies himself and then attacks much later. FFX is so much more efficient about moving things along.
Signature goes here!
