My goodness, such a big deal was made out of the ending. I was told it was going to be shocking. Errmmm...where's the surprise!?!?!?!?! I mean, the game basically TOLD you what was going to happen (even explained it) during the ship/dream/Zanarkan sequence right after Mount Gagazet. Geez, I was avoiding FFX story discussions like the plague in fear of accidentally stumbling across a The Usual Suspects kind of a twister. Anyway.
