It slowly dawns upon me that the new Lufia and Castlevania games came out yesterday. I'll have to pray to the money gods in hope of getting them.

Final Fantasiness

Hey Google.

It's been a while since I bothered to write in. If you don't mind, I have an question for you, which (if answered) requires you to give an opinion. This may cause others to give their opinions and we may end up with a full-fledged dicussion on our hands! Just thought I'd warn you.

1. Of the Final Fantasy games FFI, FFII, FFIV, FFV, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, FFX (all released in English), which game has, in your opinion, the best story? Note that by "story", I mean the development of the characters, the development of the plot, the originlity of the plot, etc. ---- Essentially, everything that one enjoys about a good book.

2. For the above question, should any other games bearing the name Final Fantasy be included? Final Fantasy Tactics has a story which is the most different from the main series, while Mystic Quest is kind of like FF junior. Then, there's Final Fantasy Legend games, which are listed in 'games' section under the 'SaGa' section.

To be quite honest, I haven't beaten enough of the games from #1 to fairly answer the question. I like the story of FFIV, but that may be more of a nostalgia thing. I didn't like FFVII very much, but I can give the story credit where credit is due; it is pretty good. I just might finish FFVI this month as I borrowed a cartridge from my friend and have some time to play it. I know from over the years that the story in FFVI is quite popular. FFIX was the last FF game I finished. Nothing spectacular there.

First off, the various Gameboy games which had Final Fantasy stuck in their names for their U.S. releases can't be counted in the FF series, mainly because they're already in the SaGa and Seiken Densetsu series.

That said though, I'd have to go with FF6. It actually took the time to give some nice development to just about everyone in a huge cast of characters, brought up a surprisingly large number of concepts you never see in games, and then of course there's the whole world destruction halfway in bit.

and looking o the future...

In responce to the guy that asked about the intro to Final Fantasy X-2 I'd just like to say that if he didn't like the intro because it was a J-Pop video then he's obviously not going to like the game. I just started playing this game a few days ago and I can already predict a huge return/trade-in rate. This game is very silly and goofy. In the best possible way I can I'll give a wonderous description of the game.

The adventures of two drunk highschoolers, their mostly drunk brother, and some random goth chick they picked up on the way, as they travel around the world searching for new dresses and glowing balls of fun.

This game is very silly, very goofy, and very disturbed, but very fun. The girls are very much like the kinda preppy girls you see in your local highschool though.


FF10-2 would seem to have an awful lot going for it in terms of gameplay, and an afwul lot going against it in terms of characters. At least in the opinion of most people I've talked to. It is rather bothersome though to make a game that brings back all the characters from FF10 except for the three cool ones.

Fun with friends.

Hey there, quick question, are there anyother 2 player rpg's with melee fighting styles like balders gater, besides balders gate? or will i have to wait for the sequel????

Uh, Baldur's Gate 2 has been out for three years, so I don't know what you're talking about there. Anyway though, to list off a few notable RPGs and Action/RPGs with multiplayer modes, there's the Diablo games, Phantasy Star Online, Neverwinter Nights, Secret of Mana, Legend of Mana... this enough for you yet?

Excuse me while I go and glower at some pirates.

More importantly, they keep sending me large files I have to delete.
