Which was your favorite game/character(s)?
My favourite game is probably VI. It had such an awesome story, and I had many lols playing it. Ultorus and Kefka were the best villians ever, and the rest of the characters were just great. However my favourite protagonist from Final Fantasy would have to be Cecil from IV, what a badass dude.

What do you like best about the series?
The characters probably.

What do you hate the most about it?
Uh...well, as I recall there would be a heap of side quests to do right at the very end, and I would need to do them before finishing the main story. But because there was so much to do I would never end up finishing it, and hence never finish the game. I don't think I've ever seen the ending to a Final Fantasy game because of this. I'd be like "Yeah, I've taken out Ultima Weapon, fuck the story". I would prefer the side quests to be more spaced out during the game.

Dissidia anyone?
I haven't been able to play it but I really want to.

Would you be up for a FFVII remake?
Yeah, the graphics for FFVII are just...urgh.

Do you love IX?
You cannot get your hands on it in Australia for some reason, but I want to play it so bad.

And...XIII? XIV? MMOs?
Haven't played XIII yet, or the MMOs, but I'd like to.

Which was your favorite game/character(s)?
FOUR. I LOVE FOUR. Kain, Cecil and Tellah are among my top characters but honestly, my favorite is Garland. I'm a shameless badguy loving fan girl ^.^

What do you like best about the series?
Honestly, the classes and the Cids. And Garland.

What do you hate the most about it?
Welllll, because the games did so well, Square is kind of an asshole to its player base. Just sayin'.

Dissidia anyone?
Heard of it. Drooled about Garland being in it, but I have no PSP.

Would you be up for a FFVII remake?
Nah. Not really. Honestly I think Seven were pretty mediocre.

Do you love IX?
YES. Though, honestly, I could have done without Dagger. That's just me though; take with a grain of salt.

And...XIII? XIV? MMOs?
Thirteen I passed on. Fourteen I beta'd on. Big fat SIGH on that. It was great until they added the time sinks that pretty much halted all play. You could totally tell they were milking the title's name, and I was so stoked for it because GARLAND WAS THE BAD GUY. It makes me sad that the corporation blamed it on the team leaders and forced them to step down.

I played XI for a loong long time. That game is/was/will always be brutal and must be played with friends. Whether you make them through the internets or you go in with a group of people to play together. It's tough, but my god; the sense of accomplishment when you get something done. I FINALLY beat the level cap with my Scholar and I was grinning for days. DAYS I tell you! That fight is so tough, most people tell you to level a different job(preferably an old school one where you have to fight Maat) so you can skip it. You know what the silly thing is? The Blue Mage fight is worse. But still. There's a lot of cool players and it was fun as hell. Just, you need friends.

Y'know I just remembered something to chuck under the "What do you hate the most about it?" even though it's something that can be said about 90% of JRPGs...
FUCKING MISS-ABLE ITEMS/EVENTS/QUESTS/CHARACTERS/MONSTERS, FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

I have, like, JRPG OCD. When I play a JRPG and can't 100% it I want to break shit. ALL. DAY. JUST BREAK SHIT.
This is why I don't even want to go back to Radiata Stories despite loving it to death. The game forces you to choose a side close to the end of the game, and both sides contain content and events and locations unavailable to the other. THERE IS NO WAY TO 100% RADIATA STORIES AND IT DRIVES ME INSANE.

It kills my motivation to play amazing JRPGs because I feel like I have to open a FAQ + Miss-ables list + Wiki + etc. just to sit down and play it comfortably.

But again, this can be said about almost any JRPG in existence, but it's one of the biggest reasons I haven't gotten around to playing more FFVII or FFVI.

/cough SMT games don't do this, hell they ALL have a New Game+ feature so you can ALWAYS 100% *that* file. There are other games that do this, but just saying, New Game+ really should be more popular on JRPGs.

That "point of no return" really never bugged me except for FF8, it just FLEW out of nowhere! I really appreciated it in FF12 when they made a point of telling you "HEY BRO NO RETURN!" or "gee this might be a choke point..." (According to tales of those who played FFX-2, it has the WORST 100% completion taunting! D8)

Anyway, anyone try Final Fantasy Revenant Wings? I'm trying to play through it again, since I didn't really understand the story. I mean, first I was like, "Oh okay. This girl is evil so she's gonna have some kind of relationship with the final boss." Then I was like, "Ok, so she's avenging her people or something." Then she dies, and I'm still playing the game, and then, I'm out to kill Jesus.

Is there a reason why I had to kill Jesus?!?

I played Revenant Wings once. I stopped after about 2 or 3 hours in.

I was forced to finish it. Without breaks, it probably took me 72 hours to finish. There's like 12 chapters in it, and GOD.

To be fair...I don't think FFVII has all that many "miss-ables" (I like this word, ha) outside a few ultimate weapons (Cait Sith's, Vincent's, and Barret's). You can even go get the "secret" (yeah not really if they're in the game manual) characters in disk 3, though I'm not really sure why you'd want to then. Especially since if you get Vincent that late you can't get his ultimate weapon, but rambling... XD

Everything else is just either a lot of backtracking or takes a shit ton of time to accomplish. I've been playing my friend Brandy's save (no real reason, just doing so) and got her Tifa's final limit break, Yuffie's ultimate weapon, Alexander, and Red XIII's ultimate weapon. This took me five hours (most of it was due to running in snow you can freaking pass out in, but whatever).

Maybe not many, but the stuff you can miss is pretty big. Like aforementioned Ultimates, and Huge Materia. :C

You can miss the Huge Materia? I thought that one was plot relevant, like Holy. I haven't played that part in forever. XD

Or did you mean the cool stuff you get by going near it again (Neo Bahaumat, right?)...?

But true, it is a bit of a pain...though I think IX kicked all the older games' asses with that one (*coughExcalibur2cough*). XD

Yeah, if I recall there are 4 Huge Materia to get if you're trying to unlock everything.

That... Fucking... Sword...

I'd actually try to get it too if it weren't for the fact that you have to miss other stuff in the game to get to it on time. It's the same conundrum Radiata Stories has; There's just no way to 100% it. (Although Radiata is still worse. In FFIX you just gotta sacrifice a sword, but in Radiata the game content basically splits in half. And on top of that all the cool stuff is in the story path I don't like. :C)

Oh, right. I forgot about all that. XD Though IX also has a ton of little things you can miss if you don't pick them up (small/fair amounts of gil, cards, etc.), but yeah...I just couldn't get through enough of Radiata Stories to know any of that. XD

In regards to Dissidia:
I'm still wondering how the hell everyone knows each other. I get how they got there, it's just...why isn't anyone from the most fantasy-esque ones flipping out about guns or the characters walking around in friggin' leather? And how come everyone can understand flowery speech?! That actually did disappoint me about the first one...I love it when crossovers have that big "WTF is this?!" moment, and Dissidia had none where there could've been a hilarious one.

Seriously, why is there no scene of Tifa meeting Zidane? That's like, comedy gold, right there. XD lol
