I played Final Fantasy 6. Something I have a hard time understanding is, every time we meet an Esper, we fought them. Then the esper turned into a magicite (which means they're dead), and then we use it.
So that means we're worse than even Kefka.
The esper was still alive when we meet them. Yet after we're done with them they're a corpse.
Maybe I should have asked this in video game stack exchange. However, it's more of the story line instead of the strategy.
