Xenosaga 3
A couple weeks ago, I finished Xenosaga 3, which I purchased about 4 years earlier. It was a better game than it had any right to be, in light of its predictably low sales and the fact that the series was canceled at 3 when it was planned to have 6 episodes. It was so good, in fact, that it's making Xenosaga 2 (which was still definitely the weakest of the series, and may have doomed it) look better to me.

It makes me a bit sad, actually, to see such excellent production "wasted" on something so few people will experience. Thanks ixiel for nagging me to finish it over the years (and for not abusing that power on things that aren't worth it). And if you have around 200 hours and a bunch of cash to spare, and a Playstation 2, you should play it. I do not expect anyone to actually do this.

That's what's mostly been on my mind lately. Oh, and this is a great song. I still wish Mitsuda had composed the whole series, but Kajiura composing the whole series would be a close second.

You claim it's an awesome game, and yet it took you four years and a lot of nagging before you could bring yourself to finish it. I don't get it.

What, you've never taken a long time to finish something that, after finishing, you liked? I gave up on The Count of Monte Cristo halfway through the first time I tried to read it, too. It's now my favorite book.

I'm not claiming my opinion is unbiased, of course. That would be nonsense. And the fact that finishing it represents an accomplishment for me probably does rank among the factors that make me like it.

Also, I didn't start it immediately. I bought Xenosaga 2 at the same time, and needed to finish that before playing 3. As stated, 2 was much less good (especially before knowing how 3 would tie things together).
