Talk about anything square! Did anyone get Drakengard yet? It looks awesome! Currently I'm playing FFX, I finished KH so! I am gonna buy FFX-2 next, the FFIX, then FFVIII.

FFVII= The best rpg ever created. Ever.
FFT and FFTA= Best square-based game ever.

FFVII is good, but not the best. I'd say FFVI is one of the greatest. KH: COM looks awesome, the card system will be impressive. KH2 is going to be awesome, I can't wait to fight the RHU (Red Haired Unknown)!

YAY ! Cool Thread !

FF X-2 : Love it. A bit girly storyline-wise, but I love the gameplay. I think the garment grids and dresspheres are great, as you no longer have to rely one one character to be the big hitter, the other the magic specialist, the other the thief etc like in all other previous FF games !

FFTA : I play it on my GBA SP every night before I go to bed :) Ive done 75 missions so far, with my clan 'Beasties' ( I occasionally do play the PsOne version emulated on my pc, as it was never released here in Ozstralia....)

FFXI - I wish I could play, cant afford it at the moment, and not much free time either

FF CC - I am getting this when it comes out in a cpl of weeks here.
Although I have heard mixed things about SP, I am *really* looking forward to giving MP a go. WOW - FF MP !! (it is a bugger though that you need at least two GBAs to do this..... I was lucky I have one, and borrowed another one)

FF9 - Actually my favourite. I just like the look of it and how it plays like an epic fairy tale. Kuja is a cool villain. Vivi is great...I love all those characters..... It is also cool that you can find out Garnet's real name is 'Sarah', the name of the princess from FF1 !!

FFXII - It just looks great ! And is set in Ivalice, the same setting as the Tactics games....


KH - never got into it, mainly because of the Disney factor *eeek*

Unlimited Saga - thats one strange game. Interesting, but I think ultimately boring. I hope they come up with something better in the unlimited series....

FFX-2 is fun as hell. Rikku in her Trainer Dressphere makes it all worth it. The storyline is weird, but then again, it's Final Fantasy.

And there are plenty of better RPGs out there than FFVII. PLENTY.

And don't stray away from KH simply because it's Disney. They actually did a smash-up job with it.

Agreed. Some of the story is pretty dark also.

FF7 was mind blowing for it's day..ya gotta admit

KH and Disney, I just get bad mental images of battling foes, and or having to rescue the likes of mickey, goofy, pluto, pooh, Donald Duck..... *ugh* man, I'd need to poke my eyes out after being exposed to that

I never bought KH because I just don't think that Disney and Final Fantasy mix too well.

I might get FFX-2, maybe. I've never been a great fan of the FF series.

Domo-Kun
02-29-2004, 01:00 PM
You guys are idiots for thinking FF and Disney doesn't mix, This game is...awesome! Either rent it, or buy it (I prefer the latter) And you will like it, great combat/magic system, you don't have to rescue Donald and goofy (only at 1 point).



When you have to rescue donald and goofy, its the final boss, Ansem, so beware folks!

FFVII was certainly revolutionary, I'll give it that. But deserving of all the praise that is given unto it? I think not. It's a good story and has a fun combat system and great characters, but eh. So did a whole bunch of other Final Fantasies. What it boils down to is:

FFVI > FFVII
Chrono Trigger > FFVII

I still play that on my E-M-U-L-A-T-O-R.
Come on people, don't be afraid to say it. Astrotoy already said emulator and nothing has happened.

Anyhow, KH is a great game. Go buy it, orI will have Obi release Comander Bun-Bun on your buns :p

Kain
02-29-2004, 05:41 PM
FFVII is the best because every FF game AFTER it has the exact same storyline, save one or two things.

And I refuse to play Final Fantasy X-2. If Square-Enix thinks I'm stupid enough to give them 50 bucks so I can play Pretty Princess Dress Me Up for 40 hours, they are sadly mistaken.

If you like RPGs, you'll probably like KH, my friends said the same thing, but it turns out they still haven't gotten past Destiny Island (the first area)

OH YEAH. i am forced to agree here with Tyrion. i'll put it this way i have FF7 and 8 still and i only play 7 and KH not 8.

and for those that won't play KH because of the disney factor you are really missin out. i too did this for like 2 1/2 months. then come christmas my cousin was gettin me a game and they were out of it. so i was like what the hey i'll give KH a shot. and to this day i do believe 2 or so years later i still love this game and just got finished beating it again last week.

I like rpg's but the turn based ness and stuff... agh i get bored but its still fun i still like ff7 even though i never finished it and had to give it back to my friend

FFVII had the same storyline as the previous Final Fantasies, so I don't know what you're smoking.

And FFX-2 is surprisingly deep. Just because it has three girls as its main characters and they change clothes doesn't mean it's a bad game. The strategy and thought that goes into managing the dresspheres and their specific abilities is integral to the enjoyment and value of the game. Not to mention the precious one-liners delivered by Paine and Rikku.

Your criteria for what makes a good Final Fantasy are sorely weak, Kain.

Kain
02-29-2004, 09:14 PM
Perhaps my criteria for a FF game is weak, ROUGE NINE, but my taste in RPGs is not. I've played FFX-2(didn't pay for, played), and I wanted to vomit because of it. The story line is shallow and its a money ploy to get horomone crazed teenage boys to buy their products so they can get more money. And its not like I'm saying I only lived 7, either. I loved 8 and enjoyed 9, but 10(all but Blitzball) made me want to gouge out my eyes and ears to stop myself from ever being violated in such a manner ever again, as with X-2. And 11 is playing on the whole Everquest craze, so it is just ANOTHER money ploy by SQUARE ENIX. SQUARE ENIX was better off as SQUARESOFT, because atleast THEN they could put out HALF DECENT GAMES AND NOT SHODDY SEQUELS TO SHODDY GAMES.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good RPG(most of my games ARE RPGs after all, plus I play D&D, Hero Games, Vampire the Masquerade, LoTR, and Shadowrun), but FFX and FFX-2 are NOT good games. Maybe if I had lost control of my horomones I'd be loving Rikku in her Trainer Dressphere too.

...and KH was cool for the soul fact that Sephiroth is so badass in it. (anyone wanna tell me how to beat him because my cousin can't seem to get past him)

jokemaster
02-29-2004, 09:17 PM
Kain, 2 things: EVERY SINGLE GAME IS A MONEY PLOY! I mean, do you think they set them out for free? no, it's their job. 2nd, everyone has an opinon, I really like FF-X, but I won't start arguing that it's good, and everyone should like it, etc..

Domo-Kun
02-29-2004, 10:03 PM
Calm down gents, let's not start a war here. And Kain, here's your FAQ http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/kingdom_hearts_sephiroth.txt

Rogue Nine
02-29-2004, 10:24 PM
First of all, you ****ing spelled my name wrong.

Secondly, you make so many generalizations that flaw your argument. You make FFX-2 out to be some sort of porno game that teenage boys go out and buy to satiate their "hormones". Don't be comparing FFX-2 to games like DOA: Volleyball. That game caters hormonal teenage boys.

FFX-2 has a storyline, but it's not linear, like all the other FFs. You don't folllow a set path, you make your own choices as to where to do and what to do. Sure, there are mandatory events to progress the story along, but you do those after you've gone through the other missions and quests. And while the characters are young girls and thus cause for attention, once you get past that, you discover that the game has so much more to offer than eye candy. The battle system is excellent and the dresspheres add a whole new depth to strategic battles. Not to mention there's a New Game+ option. How long did you play for? Gave it a cursory go, proclaimed it rubbish and proceeded to denounce it to the entire world? Probably.

Every game has it's selling points. You can't tell me that Tifa wasn't in FFVII for her fighting ability alone. And like jokemaster said, every game is a money ploy. So if you buy anything from Square, that makes you as cuplable as those who bought X and X-2. Seriously, if you're so adamantly against Square making money off of you, then why don't you return all of your Square products. That'll teach them from ripping you off, ho ho.

And for the record, I've boycotted FFXI ever since it came out. I don't like the idea of paying more than once for my FF games. And they're only "HALF DECENT" at best, anyways, so why even bother?

Attached is Rikku in her Trainer dressphere. I like it because of what she says when she's in it, not because of her looks.

And lastly, you're a moron.

That is all. :)

Domo-Kun
02-29-2004, 10:33 PM
My little rant...

First off, KAIN, Sure some people may buy the game just cause the girls are HOT, But for the most part people buy the game for something here in canada we call "quality". In your ability to comprehend words, this word is not known to you. Thus quoting Nine And lastly, you're a moron.

Firstly, what's wrong Kain ? Got up on the wrong side of the 'darke crypt' this morning... :p (j/k)

...Sure, you dont like FF, that's cool, no need to be so abrasive about it. I made some harsh comments about KH, mainly because of the Disney factor, but alot of ppl seem to love it so I'm happy for 'em !

Everybody plz Chill, I love square and its cool to have this thread to comment about these games.....

Secondly, about the E-M-U-L-A-T-O-R !!.....I think Groovy must be too embarrassed about his poor showing in the popularity contest to throw his weight around,,,, besides FFTactics was never released in Australia, and I do have the original(see below), I just have the iso. on my HDD, PERFECTLY LEGAL !!!

just to prove I support my favourite software companies...
here's my FF/square collection ! (nb. FF4 and 5 aren't ripped, I just got them ex rentals with no case, so I made my own)

http://www.myimgs.com/data/astrotoy7/square.jpg
(YES : FF3 is currently not available here, unless you have a old NES, or emulate it of course, I hope they do make a re-vamped version of that too, as they did with the other earlier games....)



I luv yous all ! :D please

Could you PM the emulator and the game to me? I'd buy the game if I could, but our SNES died long ago, and so did our Mario RPG cartidge.

Nice collection there, Astro. How is Unlimited Saga? I've never played that one but heard mixed reviews.

As for the best square game, I'd say it's a tie between Chrono Trigger and FF6 for me ;) . Kefka's laugh and evil demeanor just kick ass.

Well first off, domo kun and Rogue Nine, F-U. Must be nice to be above your own rules there, eh Niner? Of course I had this lil problem awhile ago, having a mod pissed at me over something so menial as MY F'ING OPINION. So ha.

Anyways, I never said I didn't like FF, I said I didn't like FFX or FFX-2. FF1, FF2, FF3, FF7, FF8, FF9, FFT, FFTA, FFCC, KH, Xenogears(mine got jacked), no problem with. FFX and FFX-2, just don't like em. Not my fault SOME people (coughroguecough) get all pissy because I don't agree with them (its like arguing with a fundamentalist I swear).

Oh and one last thing Domo...

Calm down gents, let's not start a war here

...lets not contradict ourselves, shall we? Or maybe its not contradicting in CANADA, maybe its just plan simple BROWN NOSING.

jokemaster, I know that every game is a money ploy, but c'mon, Tidus didn't really even exist, but dumb broad that she is Yuna goes looking for him? They weren't even trying. Its a flatout money ploy. Atleast other games TRY.

And I've seen all the endings to X-2 and all I gotta say about them is...well the same thing I say about the game itself - GAG!

I cant believe you ppl are badmouthing each other over Final Fantasy.....sheesh.... you can understand FPS hotheads, but this is ridiculous.... ! These games are about magic and love and pansy crap like that(I love em!), no more saying F-U to each other already, you're making the moogli cry !

...and Rogue Nine, I know you are a mod and all(with cool Avs, Ive noticed), but I don't think its right for anyone(especiialy a mod) to be calling other posters morons, whether or not they've been misbehaving or not, warn 'em, kick 'em that's all you need !

what we need is to get Kain and Nine to play a game of Blitzball, Tetramaster, have a chocobo race, and settle their differences :D

Tyrion, Im on the case....check your Pms....eventually !

EDIT : Tyrion...Mission Accomplished...check your PMs !

Ok, coz sooo many ppl on here said that KH was cool, I actually went out and rented it......I love the 'square' elements, if you know what I mean. The game play wasnt too bad, a bit simplistic(but I didnt get very far into it)

..But when it came to that bit with donald and goofy............ ugh ! I cant go back..... sorry...I tried......

*goes back to playing FFx-2, perfectly content*
