    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.

    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.

    Hey, the music in FFX-2 WAS good. Koda Kumi's really famous in Japan now, and the music for the individual characters was very nice. Personally, I thought as a sequel, it was pretty good - considering FFX should have been a movie instead of a game. The story was GOOD. If you actually bothered to go through all the side quests, there was a clear story, and it was interesting. Considering it was a game sequel, it was pretty damn good. I mean, Golden Sun 2 was a better sequel but that's not the point. Most sequels are *really* bad, in my experience...

    I did go through and did every quest for that 100% cause i have the must get 100% syndrome but i still felt the game was rushed and took generally less than a year for it to make than normal. But yeah i agree for most things and not just games the sequels aren't as good and rely more upon hype. Look at the matrix series for example >.<;

    I've played FFX, FFX2, FF3, FF4, FF5, FF6, FF Legend 1, 2 and 3, and FF:TA. Everybody says that FF7 is best, so why didn't I buy it?!!? WHY?!?! And now I can't find anywhere to buy it!!

    download the pc version. it's everywere. and my advise for you messu is...don't get your hopes up.
    i've been there; everybody said everywere that ffx was amazing and pff... waste of money. if you expect too much, it may end up sucking. if you find it, that is.

    FFX WAS amazing. I just think it should've been a movie, because it had the best plot of ANY game I've played. And I've played a lot of RPGs.

    I'm borrowing VII from a friend. XD No friends who played those games?

    VII took what seemed forever, and the plot was a bit confusing and kind of felt less involving and radiant compared to IX and X but seemed get better after like halfway through the game. First half of it just felt relly slow and gloomy to me somehow but the best aspects of it all eventually sunk in during the later half of the game.

    I'm just one of those people that prefer fast paced games like DMC3 and vfx beauty like in KH and FFIX (if only the spells didn't have to take forever!). xP
    FFIX's visual effects simply owned FFX's despite much uglier graphics. XD

    FFVII wasn't as good as people say my main complaint was that you started off in Midgar which was an awesome town that was all sci-fi but when you left it went to brick buildings and more classic towns...it was sorta wierd I hoped for that sort of urban super city feel to emanate through the whole game the music was of course kickass all FF music is good even X-2's I also don't like it because everyone loves it and I just like to be like that IX and tactics are better and nobody ever says there the best...


    They will write a new page, if only they could write, they will start a new age all they need is time,its a penguin attack!!!

    I'd say IX was one of the best Peng. ^^
    Guess I forgot to mention that in my previous post. xP

    Should I also mention that Sephiroth owns all other FF characters? xP

    Noooo! What about my Seymour? I so admire his inability to die! =P

    I mentioned that I've played only a few FF games, but in comparison to other games, they were excellent - though I don't know whether I'd like a Tactics-style game or not.
