Final Fantasy and it’s Class

The last installment of the series on the original Nintendo Entertainment System, Square needed to implement something to improve on their successful franchise.  Final Fantasy II, which some day we may get around to, didn't feature your standard leveling of experience points per level which each level increased stats.  Your actions, caused different areas of...
