Final Fantasy IX, War, and WMDs

Cameron Kunzelman for Polygon has a great opinion piece this week about one of my favorite video games: Final Fantasy IX.

Final Fantasy 9 shows us the closest thing to a fantasy weapon of mass destruction that exists in video games.

I really appreciate the thoughts that went into this piece, especially given the current news and the constant will-they-won’t-they regarding our nuclear overlords.

If you’ve not had the chance to play through this wonderful Shakespearian experience, it’s available on PS4, iOS, and on Steam — which means you really have no excuse!
