I'm fifty-two hours into my first play-through of Bravely Default: Where the Fairy Flies. All four of my characters are level 99, each has all 24 of the game's jobs mastered. I've not maxed-out levels and jobs in a Final Fantasy game in... ever.
Recently Jason Schreier wrote about a column by BuzzFeed's Rachel Sanders called "I Was a Final Fantasy Addict", in which the author talks about how Bravely Default didn't scratch that old school Japanese role-playing game itch for her. I guess I had the complete opposite reaction — Bravely Default brought together everything I loved about older Japanese role-playing games into one tiny package, while incorporating new elements which, as Jason suggests, no modern day JRPG should do without.
