In that case, definitely get the new S Definitive version. It is easy but a few bosses gave me a hard time and I had to grind a bit before defeating them, can't imagine how much more time I would have wasted playing the original game...
So the new version has less grinding? I ask because I have a busy life with no time to waste doing pointless grinding.
The new version is much easier - would base the above decisions on that fact alone, prefer an easy ride and a great game = new edition, prefer a challenge and more grindy JRPG? = this version. To each their own, but I did find the definitive edition far too easy from start to finish
"Gameboy version" who hurt you?
Slightly?? It's night and day the new version looks like a ps3 game in comparison. Not to mention the new versions so-called QOL improvements actually ruins a lot of the game like you can buy everything you need at your camp which you can now summon anywhere so you no longer need to explore to find the materials you need making it far too easy and a lot less fun as exploring and finding the ingredients for upgrading was part of the games charm. But to each his own, if you want the Gameboy version and the handholding included then I say go for the newer way more expensive version. If you prefer a more gritty JRPG then this is definitely the better version IMO. It's all about what you prefer as a gamer I suppose. It's ironic though as I hate games like Dark souls but love more difficult JRPGs as I love the grind but thats cause i'm old school lol.
