The Zone

The other day I got into "the zone" playing FF Tactics Advanced of all games. It's not the best Final Fantasy but somehow, it's the only FF that got me into "the zone". It's been almost a year since my last visited to "the zone".

Even though I've been playing video games for as long as I can remember, I've never been into "the zone" until Civilization 3. I remember that I was just had dinner that night and went straight to play Civ 3. Then, when I turned around, the sun was already up.

Up to this day, there are six games that got me into the zone. And Sid Meier is responsible for three of them. What are the games? Civ 3, the first KotOR, Pirates, Civ 4, Rome: Total War, and FFTA. As much as I love Oblivion, that game has never taken me to the zone.
