1) Four is death.
2) A game of many firsts.
3) This sounds...incomplete.

Planescape Torment?

Seems too topical.

1) Four is death. I swear, that fourth slot in your party is cursed. Out of the six people who occupy it, three end up dying, and two go missing in situations that could easily imply they were dead (before showing back up alive and well later). The only one not to succumb to something like this is Gordon.

2) A game of many firsts. Final Fantasy II was the first game to feature the iconic Chocobo, the first game to have a Cid, the first game to have dragoons (i.e. Ricard), the first Final Fantasy to have standard MP, the first game to feature dual-wielding and two-handed bonuses (Your weapon is stronger if you only equip one and no shield) the first game to have various iconic recurring series monsters like Bombs, Malboros, Iron Giants, Coeurls, Adamantoises, Behemoths, etc. Also there's the way it handled leveling, which would become a standard not for Final Fantasy itself, but for the SaGa series.

3) This sounds...incomplete. Here is the Chocobo theme as it originally started out in Final Fantasy II on the Famicom:

Say what you will about the remakes, but I have a lot of respect for Square Enix for keeping the Final Fantasy II Chocobo tune in its original repetitive beta glory instead of retconning it to the full theme we know and love.

4) Grow stronger by doing. Your weapons and magic grow stronger by using them, you gain strength by attacking foes and defense by taking hits, you gain more HP and MP by losing/using them in battle, etc.

5) A bigger threat dead than alive. After the Emperor dies, he conquers Hell and comes back from the dead as a powerful demon. In the remakes starting with GBA, he split his soul into two separate entities and conquered Heaven as well. There's a reason why this guy is one of the main leaders of Team Bad Guy in the Dissidia games.

Conveniently, it’s on sale for $6 right now.

2) Go on a date with anyone!

3) Some of the problems you fix include, but are not limited to: sickness, depression, muteness, confusion, death, lack of smelliness, and delusions of existence.

1) Fix everyone's problems!
You go to the country of Hurtland to heal everyone, particularly the Prince who suffers from "everything".

2) Go on a date with anyone!
After you've cured the Prince, he makes you Queen and you get to pick anyone you've healed to ask to marry, which results in an entirely different ending (not actually entirely different). Full disclaimer, I was mixing this up with the sequel's actual Date mechanic when I wrote this hint.

3) Some of the problems you fix include, but are not limited to: sickness, depression, muteness, confusion, death, lack of smelliness, and delusions of existence.
I am going to stress here, not limited to. Among the things you cure are a mummy being stuck in a coffin, a Dark Lord who's been knocked down, a ghost who's scared of himself, and one guy who is "too buff" back to being normal and average.
