To be honest FFX was the beggining of what is wrong with jrpg's today. It was basically the start of the corridor jrpg. At the time i thought that was bad, comparing it with previous titles.
With how low the bar has been set nowadays with subsequent titles, its easier to see some of the things that werent so bad about ffx. Namely the combat and the story.
In retrospect, it wasnt terrible, but j developers managed to only take what was bad from it and give it continuation.
Whoever says this is the best game ever has alot of catching up to do wit ps1 jrpgs.
