"There is a tradition for the Final Fantasy series where all the team members get together on the night the game is completed, and watch as a selected member plays from the last dungeon, on to the last boss, and through to the ending. Everyone with beer in hand, of course. Once the ending credits roll, the sounds of cans being opened is joined by thunderous applause.
In that emotion-filled moment, you think, “Wow, we’ve been through some crazy times, but somehow we made it through again.” That thought gives you the confidence to face the next project, and transforms those you argued with into comrades-in-arms. That moment is priceless."
