I loved that game. I sometimes use various versions of an Edge avatar myself in forums.

It's one of the best. :) Great for the time and stands well enough against games from other eras in music, graphics, atmosphere, writing, and characters and if you read about behind the scenes creation it wasn't easy fitting it all on the limited storage of the time and is impressive for that too, although, that was a common factor in the earlier Final Fantasy games. Even the minor characters were likeable and interesting or failing that, useful with interesting skills.

That's cool. I feel less inferior now. :lol:

Reading the first 2 pages of this thread virtually everyone who explained their name there went on to change it :lol:

Wow, that's actually true. Well, people change over time, so they would change their usernames to fit I guess.

Um. Yes. Of course. It would be unnatural to use the same username for a decade.

Well they changed the rules years ago so that people couldn't change their username any more...

Except for people who have been around since before that change and get one free pass since they chose usernames based on the assumption that they would be able to change it later...

...wow, that hardly applies to anyone anymore, doesn't it? I feel old...

And if you don't count moderators or admins, that leaves...
