I guess when it comes to side content, Final Fantasy IV had an adequate amount of things you were able to do in the game. Since I only played the GBA & Nintendo DS remake version, I guess my experience is quite different from older fans that might have played the game for the NES back in the day. Anyways, I think it was cool how this game brought back the typical side quests and other little jobs, where you are given a specific task to find a special item, then you are able to trade it for an extremely rare weapon like Excalibur.
Since this was the first game to give such a profound story emphasis on the Eidolons, or summon creatures, there is a ton of backstory and complementary sidequests involving the main characters in the narrative, where you can go seek the most powerful ones around the world and recruit them into your team after defeating them in battle. I thought it was a fair challenge based on my experience. There were also other Augment skills that you can track down from other people or based on certain requirements within the narrative, so that’s always a bonus for everyone, right?
I was also surprised that this game brought back optional dungeons containing challenging bosses and exclusive rewards that you can get after exploring them to the very end. I thought it was great to see extremely powerful super bosses like Geryon, Zeromus EG, Proto-Babil, and powerful variants of Eidolons, which definitely overshadows what the previous games offered with similar content in the series. I had a blast playing through these dungeons because of how frustrating and difficult they were, but it was quite fun and incredibly satisfying in the end :)
