Quote #3:

“I’m gonna be a blitzball when I grow up!” ~Random kid, Final Fantasy X

So inspirational.

Everyone says to have goals, so dream big, people. Even if your dream is to become an inanimate round thing that gets kicked and thrown. Even if other people laugh at you and question your sanity, have aspirations. Random Kid isn’t afraid to tell people his dream even though others might make fun of him. So why should you be?

OK, fine. Here’s lesson #2: this is why double-checking your work is so important. According to Legends of Localization, this wasn’t an English-version mistake; the Japanese script was flawed. But while the HD version corrected the mistake, the English kept the original line. This line is not “this guy are sick” levels of fail, but it’s pretty funny. Regardless, a small mistake can alter your meaning (or someone’s entire view of a person).

    Ahhhh not more Blitzball, please no more!!! That’s so ironic and funny, as I just finished watching this part when I brother played it.

      I never cared for blitzball, either. But I’d rather play that than the chocobo races.. -_-
