Stop saying this game (along with others) is "broken" when what you really mean "I'm not used to this system". The term "broken" does not mean "I wanted/wish/would have like if the system were something else", nor does it mean " I don't like it".

*Broken* means something does not work objectively, not that "it doesn't work for me and my sensibilities/taste". If every time your character attacked, and the weapon moved, hit the enemy and nothing happened to its hit points, then it would be considered *broken*. That's what the term "broken" means. But it's not broken. It works. Squaresoft had some very professional debuggers to fix many of the problems that arose in production.

"It's broken" is not something you say when you are displeased at how something turned out. Use words correctly.

With that in mind, "broken" clearly applies to this game, what with its numerous examples of the above.

In other words, learn word definitions before playing grammar police.

In gamer jargon, broken has come to mean "overpowered".

When you can become invincible, use Limit breaks at will, take 0 damage (or heal from it), be immune to statuses, have max HP on level 8, do 9999 damage per hit with anything you do and s*** like that - that's objectively broken.

A game is not supposed be this easy on its only difficulty setting.

I've been quoted by two different mods in two consecutive days. It's... a strange yet wonderful feeling.
