    It looks like someone over at Square Enix accidentally pushed out an update for the Steam version of Final Fantasy IX. What does this update do? Well, it deletes the game entirely, for anyone that was unfortunate enough to download the latest patch. SteamDB shows that an update for the game went out early on April 2nd that does nothing more than remove every asset and file from the game, rendering it unplayable. Presumably, a fix will be out imminently to undo this, and when that happens, you can expect an update within this news post.

    I, myself, haven't played a Final Fantasy game. Yet. I shall keep this information in handy for when I choose a Final Fantasy game to play someday.

    Play VI. That's it. That's the best one. Don't need to keep any other info handy.

    Then keep in mind, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (AKA FF USA) isn't the worst. You can read my review on the game :ninja:
