A story of the vagrant
Whenever I start writing anything about Vagrant Story, I have to force myself not to start gushing about the elegant perfection of the weapon system. I mean, it's simple - six monster families, using a weapon on one builds up bonuses against that monster type, and your goal becomes stacking up that bonus while you reforge...
Vagrant Story is hard to write about
I don't exactly mean that in the sense that there's not enough to write about; no, I mean that there's so much to write about that picking out one part to focus on is difficult, like picking out solitary ants from a colony of millions. There's lots of stuff to unpack here, a lot of ways that I could have gone. This went through a few different iterations before I hit on this particular take, but I could probably spend another month unpacking Vagrant Story on a whole and still have more things to say about it. It's that sort of game, in other words. Enjoy!
