So uhm.. How many of you have played this game? I cant decide if this or FFVIII is the best game i've ever played.. Even though it's a old game and I just played it for the first time.. it just keeps on amazing me. The story is awesome and the gameplay is suprisingly awesome :eek:

Please do give your comments and arguments about this game.. I know that some of the older 'true' final fantasy fans thought this was a total crap and too scifi.. but each final fantasy is differend and I love this one perhaps the best..

FFVIII is better! It's better than anything! You heretic! :mad:

Ahem yes, I have played this game. It does have a great story and is generally awesome :tmb:

*Waves it around* Heehee :p Sorry, but I'm not mailing it to you :(

But why do you find FF8 the best? :S My faves are... Maybe VII, X, and... The oldest ones xP

Kamrusepas

Because it's the best. And not just because of Seifer.... :whi:

Seriously. I simply love the story, the world, the characters, everything. And Seifer.

FF 7 was my first Final Fantasy game. :)
Loved it. It was truly unique back in it&#180;s days. Unsurpassed graphics, story and gameplay. It&#180;s still my favourite FF. Finished it... Hmm... Maybe 15 times? I dunno!

It&#180;s better than FF8, mostly because of the ultraboring drawing spells from enemies in FF8. I wouldn&#180;t give up until I had 100 of each spell for each character! And that took aaaaaaages. Bless the materia system.

so was mine.. well actually I played the demo first and I loved it.. that theme still gives me the chilss.. ( ja se kuulostaa ku ne laulais ''KIITOS!'' xD )
as I said I cant decide between the two games so I aint no heretic! :ton:
both games have their weka and strong points.. :)

Though I have yet to finish both of the games.. the first final fantasy I completed was X and it's another favourite.. gosh why cant I just choose one of them -.-

x2 sucked big time cause of the ''happy go lucky, lets raid places in our bikinis'' scheme.. and the music was too funky, techno.. :/ Final Fantasy X, VII And VIII have one of the best themes and scores in games that I've ever played... srry guys havent played ffix.. and the game doesnt look that good to me :/

VII is an amazing game. The overabundance of anxious and sulky teens in VIII just irritated me after a while (best parts of 8 are with Laguna, simply because he quite upbeat, sweet and not angsty!), and I think the story line in VII is far superior to the slight mad one in VIII (a flying academy? Riiiiight...) . IX is just a VII rip off story wise, but it's a solid game.

I wouldnīt call FF9 a rip off. Itīs more traditional fantasy-esque. 15th centuary, castles, princess...

The song Eyes on me from FF8 is gorgeous, though. I love it!

29-09-06, 15:09
I didn't come up with the word, but I love it :D

Eyes On Me is an amazing piece of music, as is most of the soundtrack of FFVIII. Just thinking about pieces like 'Movin'' gives me chills.

nice points there :D

since we are talking about music now what is the best piece you've heard in the classic psx games? for me from ffvii it's one winged angel and the one you hear when you finally get the airship and travel the world.. dont really know about ffviii cause it's been ages since I last played it.. and I havent played ix..

hmm.. could a mod change the title to ffvii,ffviii & ix cause we seem to be talking about the psx classics here ( not the classic classics )

This was my first Playstation game, and the only RPG I bothered to play more than halfway through. But I sold it soon after, I'm really not into RPGs. I have fond memories of it though and would probably buy it again if the remake rumours ever come to anything.

Be assured, FF 9 is a fantastic game. :)
Much, much better than FF 10.


That's how I felt!

I love 7, it'll always be a great game with cool characters and a brilliant storyline, good gameplay etc.

8 I didn't enjoy as much as it was more futuristic and the plot confused me, plus the junction system put me off, but after a few years I managed to complete it.

9 I love on par with 7, it's just such a great FF game!

10 was on par with 8 in my mind, but I found 8 better. Highly disappointed with the lack of a drivable aircraft...

X-2... let's not go there... :whi:

I'm replaying FF7 at the moment and its put me on a real FF nostalgia trip, I'll definitely be playing VIII and IX after this. Final Fantasy VII to me is good in every aspect, I find it pretty hard to criticize the game. (maybe some particular music tracks get a bit repetitive? that's me nit picking mind you)

As for X-2 Rivendell, let's not >.<

I don't know why people mock it so much. It's the only FF that gives the classic RPG feeling (especially with the Black Mages), the magic scenes are flawless and the gameplay and battle system get a 10+.

I dont really have any favourite final fantasy's becuse i like them all even ffx-2 although after playing the game for the fourth time really :cen: me of lol I love FFX as its the first one i really got and i know more about it compared to the rest of the games.I love final fantasy 9 because it really is Final Fantasy and i love garnet and cute little vivi (in KH2 hes so cute and kicks ass:D ) I love final fantasy 8 aswell at first i didnt understand the juntion system but now im older i do im playing it again to complete it properly.Final fantasy 7 is great aswell and has some of my fav ff characters like reno,aeris and vincent and the story is good but i wouldnt say FF7is the best but its really good.Final Fantasy 6 is good and makes me laugh alot :D and the story is pretty good and i actually love the graphics lol.1-5 iv not yet played so i cant say anything about them and x-2 well shouldnt really of been made unless it had a better battle system and yuna wasnt dressed like a tart :o I think that FF7 has had alot of attention and they should maybe make some other games or movies ect to do with the other games like 9 and 8 im still happy though :D

I know nothing about the Games, but i did hear about them and i saw this Movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0385700/ and they said its after the FF7 Game. To me it was weird and dumb, but i never really played the Games.

How many Games are there now and i read theres more Movies and TV Shows made.

In what order does the Games and Movies TV Shows cross over.

The plot of FF7 was so much better than Advent Children, if only they'd actually made a film of FF7 instead of an aftermath...

MiCkiZ88
03-10-06, 14:50
^ Ditto

Though I did enjoy Advent Children alot! unlike some people think that it was all talk and not enough action.. I found that it had too much action and not enough talk to combine the both stories, the main ffvii story and advent children story. Sure the action sequences were great and I loved to watch em, but they just were too often. Like The Bahamut battle felt out of place.. sure we knew that He summoned Bahamut but it fast just too fast and after that was the highway battle.. and after that.. another battle..

how come some people think that the movie had too much talk and too litle action :confused:

Rivendell
03-10-06, 15:21
Did anyone else not like Bahamut in Advent Children? :confused:

He must have been based on FFX Bahamut, who I thought looked light an obese dinosaur :(

Looked awful, and so did FFX's. I didn't like FF9's either as he's too thin.

FF8's looks best, and so does Neo-Bahamut from 7.

Yeah. If it were FF9 Lost episode, I doubt I'd sell that much. But since it has the number 7 in it, it will sell... I still can't figure out what's so special about 7. I'd give a 4-5/10

Probably because it was the first FF title to appear on PSX

Wow. I played FF7 years ago and I just saw Advent Children the other day (it seemed like a bunch of random fight scenes tacked together by a weak story, so I agree that there should have been more in the way of plot development). I also heard about Dirge of Cerberus, but what are the others? I assume Lost Episode is an expansion pack to Dirge of Cerberus. I haven't heard of the others, though.

dont get me wrong.. I liked bahamut Zero in advent children ALOT! well im not sure if it was either Zero or Neo cause of the wings. more likely a combination of all the bahamuts.. :)

and againg.. ffvii sells because it's good. not because it's popular..

Was Dirge of Cerberus bad? I was looking forward to getting it when I get a PS2 because Vincent's the main character. Last time I looked at the official site I couldn't really tell what the game was like, mechanics-wise, but it's been out for awhile now and I've forgotten to check up on it.

Well...don't take my word for it, cause I've never even played the game, and it being related to 7, I don't intend to.

But from what I heard, it's a waste of money, and this was also said on an FF forum, a forum where if you mock FF, they'll kill you :S

Dirge of Cerberus is just a regular third person shooter. IMO, it was good, but then again, the only other FF I've played was X2 (I had been looking to find a FF game, hoping they'd have DoC because I got the release date wrong, so I wanted to try X2 for the heck of it), so it definetly isn't the same as the rest of the series.

It was cool to find out more about Vincent, and his past though. I haven't played FFVII, and I can't get my hands on a copy, since it's extremely expensive online, and everywhere I look, it's out of stock. But I know the storyline behind it, and that helped with seeing the movie.

I like Spirits Within. I actually only saw it once, though. It was so powerful that I didn't want to watch it again for awhile afterwards, and then I forgot about it until just now. It was a good movie, though :D

About Dirge of Cerberus, I'll have to look into it a little more. I don't mind if it's a bit easy as long as it's a decent length and has a well-told good story (I wasn't expecting tons of puzzles or anything like that).

Rivendell

am i the only one here who actually liked that movie?

Nah! I loved it!
It wasn't very FF, but it's a beautiful story, trying to save the spirit of the planet, Gaia, the earth as one living entity complete with soul... And the last scene is so serene it's (as I said earlier) perfection!

:)

spirits within story is really good.. kind of touching.. eh? and most of all it's so beautifull. Though the story has a bit of same type of main theme like FFVII: the planet is dying.

saddly I cant remember much of the story nor the ending.. would love to watch it again but I cant find it anywhere..

^I found it quite boring.Yuna became very cheesy with her friends,I like her dress in kimono like in FFX,but then there's Tidus the boy wonder in yellow kiddish outfit:mad:
Yuna in the Woogle mascot costume is cute though:)

FF8 and 9 is the best in my opinion.

Has anyone played FF Chrono Trigger. The story is good too and lots of memorable characters:D

04-10-06, 08:07
gah.. might aswell turn this thread to general final fantasy :p

X-2 sucked bigtime cause of the happy go lucky theme.. I hated it and the music sucked.. where's the dramatic music in that.. the only good few songs were the opening theme and some other few..

Rivendell
04-10-06, 08:18
I just didn't think it felt/played like an FF.

I liked the faster battle system, that was fun.. but I hated the clothes changing aspect :rolleyes: Seems to be a running theme in 'not so excellent games in the franchise', that.. ;)

MiCkiZ88
04-10-06, 08:21
lmao,I gues your right Chriss :D the game did have lots of humour though and that I enjoyed cause the theme certainly wasnt what it was supposed to be :/ ACHTUNG BABY!

Shark_Blade
04-10-06, 08:25
^yeah, and the outfit changing theme like singing attack etc gives me goosebumps with all the cheesy-ness. They should do a duet singing with legend lara lol. And did I see Rikku wearing a string underwear?:eek: poor child.:yik:

Although Yuna is very elegant in FFX.:whi: XD now how many times do I have to mention that?:vlol:

Weapon:

Summon:

Spell:

Character:

Place:

Part:

:D

I'll answer in a bit, I want breakfast!

Weapon: Dunno. Some of the more outlandish ones, like the giant claw Barret gets. I like Tifa's clawed gloves, too.

Summon: the Bahamut ones

Spell: Might Guard. V. useful ;) Or Toad. I like turning my enemies into frogs... :D

Character: Vincent Valentine

Place: Cosmo Canyon, in Buegenhagen's hollographic lab thingie (Can't remember what he called it - I have lost my basic ability to use even the easiest of vocabulary due to the 'flu virus I picked up on Monday...). Love the music in that place, too.

Part: Cloud and the 'boys' have a bath... (it's purile, it's childish, and it never, ever fails to make me snigger like Beavis). That and the completely bonkers moogle game you can play in the Gold Saucer.

There seems to be tons of Final Fantasy players on these boards.

Maybe we should have some kind of FF challenge on one of the old games. I'm not sure how because obviously it's not level-based like TR. Suggestions would be welcome though.

Rivendell
04-10-06, 09:47
Like use cruddy weapons for the whole game? I did that with FF8- I kept an eye out for weapons stores and that's probably why the game took me So long to complete, I was trying to fight some of the later bosses with just one weapon upgrade, I just didn't get it! X(

Scottlee
04-10-06, 09:53
Cruddy weapons? Oh god no, I find the games hard enough as they are. I was thinking more along the lines of comparison rather than challenge, maybe finding 10 places throughout the game we post our character and summons stats. I say a number that low because there would be a lot of stats to post. It would be interesting to see, after a set time in the game, who had paired what materia with what, or who had set what abilities to which GIF, or which Tetra cards everyone had picked up. That sort of thing.

me likes that idea :D maybe complete the game as fast as we can and post a screenie then? like just before the last batle go to menu and press print screen and see who has the best time and atributes perhaps.. I dunno.. it's a bit hard to make an competition out of final fantasy..

anyways to rivendel

Weapon: I havent got the best weapons yet cause this is my first time through and im playing it pretty quiqly. but I like few of cloud's swords and tifas claws

Summon: Bahamut's and Hades. Just gotta love the poison mist Hades uses against all enemies ^^

Spell: Comet

Character: Cloud or Aerith (pst.. how the heck am I going to get Vincet on the game? )

Place: Cosmo Canyon because of the music and dusk sky, Nibelheim and forgotten capital

Part: The dress up cloud mini game cracks me up :vlol:

Sephiroth? I like Squall :D
And Princess Garnet and Yuna FFX;)

Rivendell
05-10-06, 09:40
Squall really annoyed me, he was so moody and silent. Cool hair, cool weapon, barely memorable personality to me unfortunately, I just remember him burying his head in his hands a lot.

Garnet was great, and Yuna just reminded me of Lisa from Hollyoaks. I just wasn't overly keen on FFx :(

Rivendell
05-10-06, 10:10
Something pretty high, mid 80's at least - I spent Soooo long leveling up! And even longer trying to pass time whilst breeding a damn Gold Chocobo !!!
My HP was huge too, scraping the 9000's by then.

Couldn't have done Sephy without Knights of the Round, I tried for a year without it!

05-10-06, 10:27
I hate the Chocobos. It takes too damn long to raise them. I've never got Knights of the Round, how powerful is it? I beat Sephy without it too.

Rivendell
05-10-06, 10:33
Knights of the Round Summon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_F5dolIg8Q)

Each attack was either melee/elemental magic - so you know you're gonna hit'em where it hurts ;)
Each attack usually took off between 6000 and 9999 hp :D

Me too:p I always wondered, was it supposed to be called Knights of the Round Table? There were so many translation errors that I wasn't sure. (I pretty much gave up on the game after I got my gold chocobo and that materia. I forgot about the emerald and ruby weapons and just jumped into the final confrontation because the suspense was killing me:p)

Rivendell
05-10-06, 23:29

My friend said he managed to defeat the Ruby weapon. What he did was he kept using Caith Sith's limit break, dying, and reloading until he got lucky and Caith Sith landed on the result of instant death (or something like that):p
