Just to let you know, in Disgaea, the Majin class is cheap, and
transmigrating once or twice your main character will be pathetic in
comparison to them. Once I finished the game and got all the secrets
though, the game really bored me, because there's nothing really to do, so i
sat there the place you get 2x the exp where you fight "lalala" in "the last
place"(four enemies, you should know the place if you've played the game),
and spent a long time killing them over and over transmigrating after
getting the highest rank in each class, and it was boring, because the game
is just no fun once you beat it, there's absolutely nothing to do. That's
probably the reason you haven't played it for awhile(even if it's not, it's
the reason I played it only up to 10 days after it came out and haven't
played it since, too boring, not as bad as FF10 though).
That one guy that was talking about what Final Fantasy characters would win.
The thing is, that compared to other RPG series, all the characters are
way overpowered and would kill each other in one hit, so the only way to
determine who would win in Final Fantasy, would be to name a time, so let's
say 7 hours.
Tifa would win because in 7 hours, the characters from Final Fantasy 7 can
easily take over 1000 with a single summon spell or attack, while the
characters in Final Fantasy 6 would only have about 800-900 HP and Sabin
wouldn't have any of his powerful attacks by then.
And the second battle, Kain would win, because he'd already be on level 60
atleast, with the Holy Spear, but would be using the Dragoon Spear instead,
because anyone could absorb the attack if they had armor with Holy
Properties. Kain being from FF4 would most likely go last because it takes
forever for the attack to go, and since Auron doesn't have to wait for an
ATB bar, he would go first, attacking Kain, where cloud would then go using
a summon spell killing both Auron and Stiener. Kain would finally jump,
cloud could do nothing, and Kain would take off 8000, winning the battle.
If it was determined by the world the characters lived in, then Tifa would
win, because they have no problem against the monsters in their world,
because all they have to do is attack, the monsters are extremely weak and
the attacks are too powerful(easy and repetitive), which means Cloud would
win in the second round. And the character who would most likely lose, is
Auron, because skills are worthless in FF10, and he may kill one character,
but he'd have to switch characters to kill another, because he's fighting
against three different classes of people, and I can swear that Kain and
Steiner can only be hit using a blitzball, heh.
Actually, I don't really expect this to be put up, I just wanted to rant and
secret say how much FF7 and FF10 suck(not really, because I wanted to say
how Disgaea's Majin class is cheap too).
Generally, any gave becomes boring after you've done everything there is to do. Of course, if the best
place to character build you know of is that mission there, I would be inclined to believe there's a whole
bunch of optional chapters you've yet to mess around with that are found by getting your rank up high
enough in the dark assembly.
I haven't done all this optional stuff myself yet, so I still have plenty of fun to suck out of the game.
The reason I haven't been is that, quite frankly, I haven't really had any free time in months.
Going on with the discussion about Nobuo Uematsu's peak: while I agree with you that his work on FF6 was awesome, what do you think about the FF5 music? Because I can't rank it lower than FF6 (in fact, I think FF5 is the most underrated Final Fantasy, in almost every aspect). It has such memorable songs like Battle With Gilgamesh; My Home, Sweet Home; Prelude of Empty Skies, Fate in Haze and Intesion of the Earth, among others... so to me, his peak started in FF5 and finished in FF6 (although the closer titles to the peak, FF4 and FF7, also have awesome music).
