    VII or IX would be my recommendations as a starting point. I consider IX not just to be the best in the series but my favourite game.

    Must be due my bi-annual playthrough soon actually.

    FF8 - Better story

    8 has a terrible, terrible story. And a broken combat system. And unlikable protagonists. And emoness, emoness everywhere.
    Well... it's damning with faint praise. Honestly 7 I never understood for one second what was going on. Something about METEOR and random other words plucked from a dictionary that were capitalised and thrown together randomly. Then someone died then the game just ended.

    At least 8 I could follow. Schoolkids doing stuff for something or other.
    In FFVII you were trying to stop a crazy momma's boy from crashing a meteor into the planet, then succling on the delicious healing juices.

    In FFVIII an elite group of mercenaries are trying to stop a demented witch from the future who's trying to fold all time into a single point.

    What's not to get?

    ' the hell? I did not mean this to turn into "which FF is the best" thread. But, hey, whatever. Glad to see a few people here who enjoy FF IX, definitely my favourite of the PS1 era.
    But I also enjoyed FF X which this thread is dedicated to (remember?) and can't wait to try FF X-2 which supposedly has the best battle system ever.

    Sorry, that was entirely my fault. It was really useful for me if that's any consolation ;)
  • Deleted user 20 March 2013 20:07:47
    oki-doki :) It's interesting though that any time a Final Fantasy game is mentioned a lot of passion and emotions come out. It must have one of the biggest fan bases.

    Indeed, every FF thread somebody gets out a list and an analysis of every game in the series,

    The combat system is great! With a bit of thinking you can one shot everything right from the get go.

    I'm out. Disappointing that. Any reason?
    No idea. Maybe they're supposed to stick with Sony for FFX or have been paid more for it?

    Have there been any FF Xbox 360 releases apart from 13 and 13-2?

    Probably cause Xbox bombed in Japan.

    Japanese developers seem more likely to stay loyal to the hardware. Still no MGS4 Xbox release, even though it could have been done and would have sold well.

    7 is the best thing to ever be called a game. 8 was good but the combat draw bollocks was shit.

    8 was disappointing at the time but feels like a classic now.

    12 was my least favourite but I'd like to play it again. I remember not really liking x-2 too much but I'd like to give it a shot again. I just remember the intro being like some bizarre Pop Idol type thing. Liked the job system in it though.

    I'm looking forward to playing X again though and trying to defeat the dark aeons.:eek:


    And as for Mummy's boys Seymor is the ultimate Mummy's boy. He actually gets his mum to beat you up in the form of animaa.

    Don't think I really enjoyed most JRPGs this gen bar the excellent Persona 4 on the Vita and disgaea. Anyone have any recommendations for a good current gem RPG? I didn't really like Tales of Graces F however.

    Agree with Xenoblade! Did you try Ni no Kuni?

    I enjoyed X-2 while it was a sort of camp, treasure hunting adventure. It got all serious and stupid though.

    I've had this on my shelf for a few months, never played it. I packed my Wii away after I gave up on Zelda and can't be arsed with it.

    Hopefully these will be two separate cart versions. I don't mind if they do it like that. Hoping not download only.

    Expecting 64gb and 128gb cards at e3 though, along with raising the cap of how big cart games can be.

    Yes. It meant that your fights became combatless draw fests to start with, and that you felt guilty for using your hard won stockpile.

    Never found out how draw really worked. Some of my people could happily rape 9 per draw, yet others would slog for no results or a 2.



    I would go MENTAL for Square to do a fully fledged "budget" Final Fantasy type game. Traditional PSone style with rendered backdrops and 3D battle engines. With all they have learnt over the years, surely they could perfect it. Much like how people are looking back at 2D games from the past and using those foundations to create true classics.

    Even get the Chaos Rings guys in to do it or something.

    I thought the FF8 story was great! Everything from the SeeD exam right up to the missile attack was absolute gold!

    Also liked the way that the main character generally didn't want to be part of the crew.

    I think 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10-2, 11, 12, 13, 13-2 and 14 were all bad

    I think 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10-2, 11, 12, 13, 13-2 and 14 were better.

    FFVIII for life.

    I'm struggling to get along with FFVII on Vita. I dropped it to play The Warriors or something.

    Really looking forward to this. X is my favourite alongside VIII, so be great to play through it again. Having X-2 included sweetens the deal as I never got into it on PS2 so can give it another shot.

    Couldn't give less of a shit about X-2. Shame that FFX is obviously being held back because of that turd.

    I want to give both X-2 and XII a go again.

    My issue with X-2 was having to tramp round the same environment I had already mashed up and down repeatedly in X, and then have to do that 5 times in the course of the game thanks to the Chapter structure. It plays like DLC.

    XII I got disinterested with, I might find it more engaging this time. I think having come from such tight combat and leveling games in the series before, stepping to XII with such big issues in it.
