Can a game teach empathy? Final Fantasy X certainly teaches the power of manipulating empathy—the strength institutions have over otherwise good people and the space between them. Nowadays, we see violence doled against knowledge constantly. Truth is often threatened. Final Fantasy X suggests, in times of crisis, we should retreat into our communities, care for our neighbors, and resist what endangers a better tomorrow. The legacies we leave behind are nothing in a land leveled of its history. We wouldn’t want that. Context bubbles to the surface like a precious memory. Let travelers look at your works and rejoice.
