Out of the ones you gave I would say either 6 or 8....I rather hated the others because they were usually boring because of the repetitiveness of them.

Final Fantasy IIX was the first Final Fantasy that I played so, of course, it's my favorite. I also like X, it was pretty fun.

Final Fantasy 7 is truly the best...!p.s. you should try out star ocean till the end of time if you like final fantasies. Final Fantasy X graphics, great plot, and an extremely active battlesystem....much better than turn based..
Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Yukio on September 23, 2004, 08:38:15 PM
Final Fantasy 7 is in my opinion very boring. I mean it doesn't even start to compare to FF8. I take it as an insult to even think of putting any Star Ocean game in the same catergory as the Final Fantasies. Any Star Ocean game could easily beat the best Final Fantasies without compare. Though the Wild Arms series come close to the standards of Star Ocean.

Exactly how I feel. Except for the breaking of the disks and stuff. FF7 is good but it doesn't even compare to FF8's greatness.

Tell me, is there an intrinsic quality that exists for each game, independent of the observer, such that one can determine, objectively, which is better?

Would you mind entering periods and commas next time? Thank you.

What's so great about 7 anyways? Why does it stand out above all the others? Come on, I have to know.
Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Yukio on October 06, 2004, 07:38:50 AM
FF7 sucks because it has a cliche storyline and the graphics themselves are not to good. The only redeeming qualities would be some of the music and the character Vincent. FF8 however doesn't have a cliche storyline, the graphics are very good...well the cut scenes anyways. The music was pretty good and the characters were great. The battle systems in both are really the same with just a few minor differences.

I haven't had much time given that I have alot of homework to do....and also I have been trying to get a friends board up and running. One of the best characters in any Final Fantasy game would be Seifer.

Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Spike Spiegel on October 07, 2004, 06:32:56 PM
Exactly, FF8 was the best FF ever made. Period.
Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Waya475 on October 08, 2004, 05:17:54 AM
The characters to VIII were pretty bland.  Selphie was a crack whore, Irvine was a pussy, Zell was just loud and obnoxious, Quistis could have been so much more, Rinoa was a slut, and Squall (perhaps the only cool main character) was a bit lacking.

I do like VIII, mostly because it was the first RPG I ever played.  However, I don't think one is incredibly superior to another.  If anything, X's battle system was great.  Lots of strategy involved.

VIII's juctioning made it so easy to cheat. i dont really have a favorite between any of the FF games so i didnt choose any of them

Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Tseng on October 20, 2004, 10:18:46 PM
My favourites are Final Fantasy 7, followed by Final Fantasy 6

i find that a lot of people that vote for 10, haven't played its predecessors, making pages like this jibbing results up for people who are seeking to play the best final fantasy.

i'm an rpg fan, and why ff7?
FF7 = best plot, and gameplay. and even tho ppl continually critisize cloud's blocky arms, I reckon the whole cartoon look was really koo. GRAPHICS DO NOT MAKE A GOOD GAME~!!!!
FF6 next = becuz it too had an awesome storyline only a little lesser than FF7. Kefka is a betta villain in my opinion than sephiroth. :X and there are so many diff. characters each having a good character indepth look making the game a very worthwhile gaming experience.
i really liked FFX, and i'd put it next....but i also really liked FF8 and 9. .. Final Fantasy 8 becuz of the mercenary bravado feeling, and 9 becuz it was all so carefree and charming.
 
hehe, and i agree ff8's junctioning system was a little cheap. the equipping 100 death spells onto attack...made it all so ever cheap....and regardiing some1's post earlier. How the hell is Rinoa a slut....?!?????...
i kinda like this quote from a previous forumz site regarding ff8 and a discussion on Squall and Rinoa. it goes something like dis...
[warning...does consist a spoiler]
"Would it be great if at the end of FF8, General Caraway appears, where Squall and Rinoa are kissing at the very end"
General Caraway: "You do know Squall, that is your sister rite?"
Squall: "...."
Squall: "......shit"

ok so Julia Heartily (rinoas mom) is Laguna Liore's former lover(Squalls Dad) but shit happened and they got separated, through the course of time they got married with another partner Julia with caraway and Laguna with Raine.

Or Just play FF8 it really not half bad.

There are also rumors going about saying:
-Ultimacia(the final boss) is actually rinoa from the future that went rouge after squall died.

-That Squall really died in the first disk and what we saw in the rest of the disk are just his dreams.

Post by: Aoshi101 on March 06, 2010, 03:13:33 AM
I read that "Squallsdead" site, and the theory has potential, but it disregards alot of the story and at parts it seems to me that the guy who wrote it didn't pay as much attention to detail as he should've (especially when it came down to the Moombas and NORG). The theory is pretty solid but he makes comments about how the story didn't make sense the way it was written, when it actually did. I'm not going to go into it unless if people really want me to.

I like the theory though. It created a new spin on the story and made me think about it for a bit.
Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Kite on March 06, 2010, 12:36:20 PM
yeah it made me re-asses the game again, the game really has some plot holes that need more explaining to be more clear(so does the rest of the final fantasy franchise) like squall getting Pierced with Ice Javelin and getting electrocuted and never dying(though i just keep thinking that hes a mercenary, hes trained for those kinds of things or he's just lucky)

[spoiler]
About the Moombas and NORG. NORG was fully explained as to way he never made a prior appearance before the breakout at Balamb. He was the financial backing for SeeD, but due to a political power struggle (assumption), Cid was able to retain SeeD (Edea's and his creation) while NORG went underground, biding his time. A good example is when someone wants to start a business but needs financial backing in order to get off the ground (not enough cash flow from customers, other problems, etc) so they seek out someone with the means. Now this is saying the person they find isn't exactly the ideal person one would want to deal with but they figure its the best way about it. So they take the money not realizing that a year maybe several years, the guy will be back to claim whats his.

Now about the Moombas, keep in mind Squall has been pretty isloated in every place he's lived. Aside from the orphanage and the Balamb Island, Squall hasn't been much anywhere else. And its easily assumed that Moombas aren't that common in places as in others. Its like if you go to Japan, you're really not going to see alot of Europeans or African Americans. Not saying you're not going to see them period, its just highly uncommon to find alot of them there. In fact the only places we really see Moombas are in Shuumi Village, Esthar, D District Prison and maybe Timber if my memory serves correctly (don't count Lunatic Pandora as thats a floating machine not a city). Those are pretty specific spots and considering the size of the world we're given, that leaves alot of space to cover.

As far as the ballroom scene, its actually implied (if not directly said), later in the first disc, that Rinoa actually went there to find Cid to petition for SeeD help (or to finalize the deal for SeeD help). Its also brought up the moment she talks about "Fond summer memories...". Its implied here that it was a long time ago and that since then, aside from the help she recieved from Seifer into getting help from SeeD, their relationship pretty much stalled and ended. The fact he broke out of jail to help Rinoa in a time of need could easily show the lingering affections he had for her, and vice versa when she talked about him during his "supposed death". Granted I will say that implications are still open to interpertation, this is just how I see this entire romance fiasco between Seifer and Rinoa being.

Now with Seifer going over to Edea's side, it makes perfect sense. Let me explain. Prior to Squall's death Seifer says this:

Seifer: "I prefer to be called her knight. This has always been my dream."

Now granted hindsight is 20/20, but if we knew what we knew by disc 3, that Rinoa is a sorceress, it puts this into correct context. They we're trying to go for a "who's a better team" kind of look. Of course, being as predictable and obvious as it is, Squall and Rinoa would come up on top (considering the main character is Squall). Also you can look at it as a continuation of the rivalry. In disc one when Seifer and Squall team up, its made apparently obvious that Squall and Seifer dislike helping each other in any which way or form unless if "ordered" to. Even the dialogue in the town square during the battle seemed like they were just trying to get under each other's skins, but still had the respect for each other's skills. Everytime after disc one, that Squall and Seifer fight each other, Seifer tries to say things to rile him up and get under his skin like before. Pretty much we can assume that Seifer was just using Edea in his own way, to best Squall. Remember as you continue to go through the game, he gets more powerful so we can also assume Edea's teaching him something, whether its new spells or new techniques. She is a sorceress after all and its not like during the time in between each meeting, that they just sit around twiddling their thumbs. It is also implied in the 3rd or 4th disc (can't remember which) we get a flashback to the cut scene where Edea revives Seifer after the battle in Galbadia Garden. It specifically shows Ultimecia, kinda behind the scenes, being the puppeter. With that being said we can also assumed she brain-washed or put some sort of suggestion in Seifer's brain to make him stay on that side to help her. So by assuming Squall is still alive after disc one, everything I just explained here about Seifer makes alot of sense (or at least I hope so to everyone).

Last, but not least, the ending. Only half the ending supports the thoery of Squall's death. Ask yourself this: If Squall was dead by disc one, what was the significance behind showing the floating space scene or anything else that happened after disc one? Not to mention the fact showing all the characters in an "epilogue" manner (showing what happened to them after the ending of the game). Now granted this is to assume that Square intentionally wanted us to come to this conclusion of Squall's death. Unintentionally, of course you really can't count much of the ending in anything, FF or otherwise cause the ending is the resolution and pretty much explains the whole story to us (in most cases).

I will say though, I like this theory and up to this point, I've never had to think about the FF8 story as much as I have done now. I wish there was more concrete evidence to support Squall's death as that probably would've made for even a greater story. Think about it, main character dies by first disc yet you have no clue until the end? I've never seen Vanilla Sky or the other movies mentioned, but by what was said, I'm extremely intrigued.

When it comes to the storylines of the Final Fantasy series I would have to say that Final Fantasy 8 had an interesting storyline that I liked. Final Fantasy 9 had the charm of the games from the beginning of the series with many twists which is always great. Overall, the Final Fantasy that had the best storyline and therefore the best, at least in my opinion, is Final Fantasy Tactics.

Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: fightingmelee on June 14, 2010, 05:36:37 AM
ff 11 is online. ff10 and x-2 are definatly ps2.
personally, I like x-2. They brought back the old system style without having too much characters.
 
I like how 13 is, it's a new play style that gives you a lot of strategic ideas. Thus the mobs must be tough for this play style. However it still needs some improvement, should be able to go through the game without having to debuff  or buff a lot.
Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Yukio on June 14, 2010, 04:17:26 PM
I have not gotten around to getting Final Fantasy XIII. Is the story fairly good and is long enough to provide a few weeks of entertainment or is it quite short?

Maybe someday instead of coming up with more complicated options in a battle they return to the way it used to be using a more simple menu in order to win each battle much like how Final Fantasy 7 and 8 was. In all honesty though when it comes to combat I would have to say that the following games have a combat system that would work well will the Final Fantasy games: Rogue Galaxy, Chrono Cross, Radiata Stories and Legend of the Dragon.

Of course, that is my own personal opinion.
Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: Kite on June 14, 2010, 07:47:57 PM
I agree with you on that one Yukio

and how bout a battle system like Mana Khemia? i like how you can overpower your opponents with Combos and Finishing Strikes, and itll look much better than with 6strikes per one atk instead on 1Strike per atk(Excluding Limit Breaks)



Title: Re: which final fantasy u like?
Post by: fightingmelee on June 15, 2010, 05:31:24 AM
ahh chrono cross, even I didn't play that game long, still one of the best ps games invented.
 
oh and about ff13, the story is long, perhaps too long. all of th leves are a straight line. seriously, at first ur glad that theres no dungeon withn long hallways and too many routes, but after awhile you will miss the long eic dungeons.
 
Every battle is an epic battle. For the first 10 lvls ( yes 10 lvls and ur still not halfway through the game), it will be easy. The moment u start 3 man teams for a second time it will be difficult. When it finally lets u choose ur party, u must take every battle as a boss battle. The only difference betwenn a boss fight and a regular fight is just the length of the fight. Other than that, if u screw up or are too slow to execute commands, consider urself dead.
 
battles are nice and epic though

Post by: Yukio on June 15, 2010, 04:58:28 PM
I have to say that is starting to sound quite interesting. It is good that it is quite long and the difficulty sounds quite nice as long as the battle system is fluid and easy to use.

In terms of difficulty though I believe Rogue Galaxy would be much like what you mentioned though it is was more grinding, which was quite fun actually with the battle system and everything else, with battles that required extensive use of healing potions in even the shortest battles. lol

Personally i am eagerly awaiting an English release for  Final Fantasy Agito XIII. I mean, it's like they took the plot straight from some manga - a group of students at some magical academy fighting to save the world!!! And i heard that the game play is gonna be the similar to the real time action battle system from Crisis Core so it's gonna be epic XD

The battles do take up a lot of time, even to the point where u can save pretty much anywhere.
Also once u learn cure, potions will become uselss, exspecially when ur hp sky rockets after each upgrade. (not lvl upgrade, imagine ff 10)
There some downside to the battle system like range and distance, it affects which move to automatically use. The best thing I like about the game besides stagger point, u use no mp ^^

FF6 was a brillant game and one of the best storylines. I like that you learn magic from Espers, it made sense. But FF7 just had the better storyline and main villian.
not sure if I played 6, cloud was 7 right?
