I always get really far, but then stop. In most of them, all of a sudden it gets really hard, and you have to spend extra time levelling up your team to stand a chance. After getting my PS2, I bought 7, 8, and 9, only to get a few battles away from the end and quit. 10 is the only one I've beaten since it didn't require too much extraneous effort. I just got the 5+6 PSone combo, and I'll probably get the Chronicles and Origins collections also - especially since the color on my SNES is broken for playing Chrono Trigger. I might try going through them all, although I hear 2 is a pain, and I'll probably just get lazy and stop halfway through the first one again.

The only one I've completed is 7. I've played 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. 9 is abhorrently long (and broken), 8 sucks, and the other 3 were my sister's.

The current BWF Women's Champion says:


I've beaten eight, got to the part in ten where the team is about to face Sin on the airship when it freezes (so I pretty much beat it, and I didn't even have to fight the final form of Seymour, joy!), I've gotten through most of four, I'm about halfway done in six and seven, I've only played a little in five, and I haven't played any of the others yet.




Yes folks, I have actually updated my sig.

Final Fantasy I (NES)
Final Fantasy II/IVj (SNES)
Final Fantasy V (PS1 - on FF Anthology)
Final Fantasy III/VIj (SNES)
Final Fantasy VII (PS1)
Final Fantasy VIII (PS1)
Final Fantasy IX (PS1)
Final Fantasy X (PS2)
Final Fantasy Adventure (Gameboy)
Final Fantasy Legend (Gameboy)
Final Fantasy Legend II (Gameboy)
Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (SNES)

Okay, so I'm a Final Fantasy mark. Honestly, I'm even more of a Dragon Warrior mark, but since only five of the Dragon Warrior games (not counting the Monsters series) have made it stateside, there's no possible way I could have beaten twelve games of that series like I've done with the Final Fantasies.

In any case, here's hoping to add Final Fantasy X-2 to my illustrious list sometime after the new year (pending I receive it for Christmas).

Roughly in order: 1, 6, 7 (though I disliked much of it), Tactics (several times). I almost finished 5, but got distracted by something else right before the last boss.

I own 8, but only because I found it for $10 at BB years ago and figured I could trade it with someone. I have next to no interest in playing it.

And if FF spinoffs count, I've beaten Chocobo's Dungeon 2, which was much more to my liking.

I've beaten 6, 7, 8, and 9. 6, 7, and 9 I played and played until I beat. 8 I played for a while then quit, then went back to it later because I felt bad about not finishing it after getting so far. I got pretty far in FFX but then my friend borrowed it and moved to Canada! If I ever see that punk again then I will beat him to a bloody pulp. Then take my games back and finish FFX (and Xenogears). I started FF X-2 also but I only rented it and played it for a day or two because it's on my christmas list and it will be no fun getting it if i've already beaten it.

I also played FF Tactics but I hate that game so I didn't get very far.

I am also a mark for the first Dragon Warrior, it was got me hooked on roleplaying games, which along with sports games is all I play now. But I've only really played 1, started 2 and 3 but never got really far.

JVINCION, how the HELL did you beat the Game Boy FFs? I never had a manual, so I never really understood the whole morphing after you eat stuff thing. I would always morph into something that I didn't want to. And I just simply lost interest. I still have them, any tips on making them bearable or even fun?

Well, I haven't beat the 3rd one of the Game Boy FFs yet, but I'm tempted to give it a go sometime in the near future.

To answer the question, the whole "eating monster meat" thing is kind of a crapshoot. Sure, you're not going to end up with the greatest of monsters all of the time, but once you get further in the game, the meat gets stronger, as do the monsters.

I had a photocopied page (which a friend of mine gave to me) for FF Legend that explained what monster you would morph into by eating what kind of meat, depending on what kind of monster you were. Now that GameFAQs is around (which it certainly wasn't when the FF Legend games came out), I'm sure that info is readily available.

As for making the FF Legend games fun? First off, you've got to accept the fact that the first two are actually based on the SaGa games, and that building up your stats is fairly random. If wandering around and killing things for extended periods of time hoping that one of your stats might build up isn't your cup of tea, I don't think you should bother dusting them off and giving them another go.

If you can handle that, another point of advice would be to not use too many monsters in your party. I would recommend only using one, since they can be handy auxillary characters, but humans, mutants, and robots (in FF Legend II) tend to be much more stable characters.

Another thing that always made playing Game Boy games more enjoyable for me was plugging them into the Super Game Boy for the SNES, so I could see things a lot better and have a more ergonomic controller at my disposal. Of course, if you don't have either of these things sitting around your place of residence, I wouldn't recommend trying to procure both of them unless you've got some money to blow and really want a somewhat-different perspective on playing pixelated 4-bit games.

Damn, I really sound like a dictionary, don't I? Stupid college.

1, 2j, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Tactics, Mystic Quest
FF legends 1, 2 (never beat 3)
FF Tactics Advance is too shitty to play.

Never got into 3j or 5j, just found them boring. I've beaten 4 and 6 a million times each.

They should work in a GBA player on a GameCube as well. I'd actually recommend picking up the Cube w/ GBA player just for Advance Wars 2.

FF 1, 2, 3, 7, 10, 10-2 (that's actually lying a bit as I haven't finished fighting the final boss, but I'll do that later tonight) Legends 1, 2, 3 and Tactics-Advance.

The thing I always realized about Final Fantasy Legends is that it's one of those games that you're really going to have to let yourself get into or else you never will. One was fairly easy, I thought, just a straight up roleplaying game, but two is just absolute murder. You can go on playing really well for a while, but no matter what your level is, the game tends to stop you dead dead dead when you fight Apollo, and that's before you even get to the final boss. But I always thought the "Mana Crystals" idea was a neat one. Three is interesting. One one hand, it's fairly easy, especially after you really get the airship going. It's also probably has the best storyline out of all of the GameBoy FFs. My biggest problem is that, especially at the end of the game, your party is full of wimps. You really need to change them into either a mutant or a cyborg to keep them going (humans end up being too fragile). I also don't like that magic isn't a fixed thing. It's too easy to let a useful skill like "Cure" get dropped just because one of your Mutants learned another skill.

Allow me to echo the point about staying away from monsters in 1+2. Unless you can really spend all day leveling them up and finding the right monster/meat combinations to give yourself a real badass at the end of the game, they're pretty much worthless. In 2, Robots are a fine alternative (especially since they cannot run out of ammo and automatically gain HP/skills whenever equiped with something). I usually use a party of two humans, a mutant and a robot. It's a strong party and the robot can cover for the early weakness of the mutant and the late mediocrity of the humans.



Wisconsin Badgers: 7-5 (Looks like we're playing Auburn. That's a color, not a school.)

Minnesota Vikings: 8-5 (I'm extending my giving thanks for one more week to say "Thank you, Seattle, for being an awful road team.")

Bad translations? These 2 games have better translations than most of the officially released Square translations. If you were playing versions with bad translations, they must have been one of the unfinished ones by one of the few dozen groups that attempted to hack them and failed.

The Final Fantasy 2 translation by Demiforce and the Final Fantasy 3 translation by by AWJ, Neill Corlett and SoM2Freak are both top notch translations.

And as for which ones I beat, um.. I beat the original NES version of Final Fantasy, but that's it. I also beat Final Fantasy Adventure for Gameboy but that doesn't really count since neither Final Fantasy Adventure or Final Fantasy Legend I,II or III are actually Final Fantasy games. They just called them Final Fantasy so more Americans would buy them.

I'll tell you one thing, some old RPGs can still be played, and some can't. Have you tried to play Chrono Trigger lately? Yeesh. However, I'm sailing through FF6 right now and loving every minute of it.

Has anyone ever played Uncharted Warters: New Horizons? That's one of my favorite RPGs of all time, and very few people know of it.

He did not just say that. TELL ME he did not just say that. Seriously, I've played Chrono Trigger so many times I practically know it by heart. And I could play it again and love it all the same. I completely agree with you on FF6 though.

Oh, and I've beaten 4,6,7,8,9,10,x-2, Tactics, Tactics: Advance, and the grandaddy of em all, MYSTIC QUEST!!

I picked it up used a year or two ago, and I ended up playing a year's worth of one of the quests in a few days time. What I really enjoy about it is the ability to sail around the world, trade goods, buy bigger ships, and fight pirates (which is a good chunk of the game, no doubt). The fact that these things are implemented fantastically and everything is held together so well is what really makes that game.

It's definitely my favorite Koei game, although Bandit Kings of Ancient China is a close 2nd.

Anyone picked up Sword of Mana yet for GBA? It's a remake of the original Final Fantasy Adventure which was actually the American version of the first Mana game. The remake is AWESOME in quality and has one hell of a translation. I'd go as far as to say that it ranks up there with the Lunar rereleases in that department. The game still holds up well. I was worried b/c I have such a fond spot for the original in my heart. It was the first game I ever had for Game Boy and I played the crap out of it. Seriously, if you liked the first one, go pick this up.
