Absolutely! So annoying. I think I may have mentioned my FF9 horror story - after I'd spent over sixty hours playing through the game, beat the last guy, the last last guy, started to relax and enjoy the end sequence when it FROZE. I was so in hysterics, nearly lost my mind. Thankfully I was able to borrow someone else's disc 4 to finish!
Malcolm Revenge is actually the only of the three I haven't finished, and I own all three of them, too.
