lets see i've played
FFI, FFII, FF3/6, FFVII, FFVIII, FFX, FFX-2, FF:Mystic Quest, FF Tactics and have seen FFVII:Advent Children and parts of the Last Order and the totally unrelated movie concerning ff in FF:the spirits within. I plan to eventually play FF:Bahamut's Lagoon and will get FFXII when it comes out.
I have to heavily disagree with that statement. FFVII has an awesome plot, great music and at the time period had cutting edge graphics. There is all this talk about whether or not it will be remade for the ps3 but take my word it WILL be remade for the ps3 for the sheer money factor. It was and still is one of the most popular games ever and when released - check some gaming sites and game guide sites and you'll find its still one of the most popular and highly rated in not just the ps format but ALL gaming formats, jeez it was more popular than the great Halo, DMC3, Smash Bros (etc) - will dominate the whole gaming market. FFVII revolutionised rpgs in that time period and got it away from traditional hack and slash and a whole and successful materia system. Not only that it's only one of 2 ff's to have any other thing made concerning it. FFVII had a bloody movie and Last order episode made after it with Dirge of Cerebrus featuring Vincent coming up, while FFX had a sequel in FFX-2 which my friends and i all agreed pretty much was shit.Originally Posted by Penguins
If you're wondering why i say FFX-2 is shit its cause of the following reasons, music was not good but not the usual high standard toshiro Nobuo Uematsu sets and personally i took the removal of the victory music after a battle as a huge insult, battle graphics especially at the start substandard, battle system was interesting but not well fleshed out enough and had problems. There definately weren't enough fmv's in the game that the whole square enix company is renowned for (e.g ffx had 53, while ffx-2 had 8 including the bonus ending). But more importantly FFX-2 HAD NO PRACTICAL STORY, I mean yay we're on a search for tidus OH NO the world is being threatened by a huge prescient machina and being used by (i won't say to ruin other people playing the game for plot reasons) to destroy the world SO LETS SAVE THE WORLD. I mean the only link to FFX-2 is that its the same bloody world and that they were looking for tidus. It doesn't answer any questions or wrap up any story its just like a bloody filler, questions like was tidus real or someones elses memory, did tidus learn to control the pyreflies to make a body as suggested by the clip after the credits (etc). FFX-2 was a huge letdown and a major blemish on square enix.
