I beat brachosaurs the old fashioned way, with blitzes and tools and sword techs, and blue magic (and ultima... sweet, sweet ultima...).

I had Sabin, Edgar, Cyan at level 99 with every single spell learned, and Strago at level 86 with almost every blue magic spell and every normal spell too. Everyone else was around level 46 (each with about half the spells). I had like 75% of the thingies for Gau too (Even though I hated that bugger... I hate you gau). And yes, the story does fall apart after that stuff happens.

I never could get into Final Fantasy, and most other 'RPG' games. For two reasons:

1) I never bought them. I always had friends who would buy them. So by the time they were done, and I could play the damn game, I'd seen them leveling for days on end already and couldn't stand it.

2) These are not Role Playing games. Or at least, they have nothing to do with any sort of Role Playing that I enjoyed as a kid. Give me something where I can choose my own fate, and I'll play it forever. Killing things just to level? Lamest part of Role Playing games.

-Jag

Note: I now realize that Final Fantasy games to me are just MUDs with graphics.

Blitzball looked pretty cool. Then my friends just went and leveled again. Sigh. I'd rather play GTA3, or beat Devil May Cry a few more times, thank you.



With poison running through your veins, and death marching solemnly towards you, heroic acts become more of a necessity as you see your time dwindling.

Vanquishing your enemies, making amends to those you have wronged, and leaving words of love and kindness for those around you become second nature as your own mortality looms

However, true strength lies not in these last desperate acts, but in the actions of one who has to get out of bed the next day and face the consequences of doing that which you believe is right.

I feel you Fuzzy Logic! Gau rocked at first with cat scratch, but later he blows. I used the invisible and doom/x-zone trick one time through the game, but normally I never use it once, due to it making the game shitty. I would level up aganist the brachosaurs and T-rexes with some good old fashioned Exp Eggs and shit to lvl up. I eventually raided Kefka's tower where you get 3 groups with only 1 person in each group. Terra in on, Celes in one, and Strago in another. Boom.... actually won it too with just them. I think I had Genji Glove and Oconmizer with the Atma Weapon and another good sword on Celes, and used the Gem Box/Economizer Quick Ultima, Ultima Ultima trick with the rest of them.

Nobody is giving any love to FF9, I thought that was the best of all of them. Right behind it is FF3 (or 6 if you wanna be technical). I love the medieval feel to these too. I love that combined with the technology.Plus the music and graphics on both is excellent. FF7 was cool as well but the music was HORRIBLE to me. That MIDI sound is just inexcusable considering that Nintendo had such good music for FF3. Was there any reason that they had to use MIDI music for Playstation?

I have tried to get into FF10, but Im not liking it. The main character annoys me. He reminds me of Raiden from MSG2. I agree with whoever said they didnt like the voices. My friend says thats Ive got to give it a better shot, its awesome once I get into the meat of it. Im trying but I hate the main character with his whiny voice and goofy outfit. The battle system is cool though. I played FF8 for about 5 minutes before I turned it off and never touched it again.

The only two I've played so far are IX and X. I'm planning on getting VI, VII and VIII later if I can.

Out of the two I've played, I like X the best, but I also really, really really like IX.

I'll probably skip XI, since I don't really have any intention of playing a massively multiplayer online RPG. Things like that can eat days out of your life. I'll probably catch XII, though.

My worst experience with Gau though, was that Behemoth thing on that triangle island... Pre-shitty stuff happening triangle island, you know where that almost im-fucking-possible to kill monster was? I killed it (not with the vanish/x-zone thing either, I lucked out with Mog's dancing), a few times. Then, in the post-shit-went-to-shit world, I went and found it on the veldt (which took a few fucking hours), expecting it to give gau some badass attack shit... Specifically meteo (or meteor, whatever it was called). Managed to hop on the fucker, get gau back... I try using it a few times, and shit all. One of the worst rages for the little bugger. I hate gau.

As someone who has completed VII-XI, and pretty close to beating X, I would say that it is a very close call between XI and X for me. Between these two games, they seem to have got the mythology/technology balance of the game world right. I also loved VII, as before I only used to play platformers and football games on consoles before discovering FFVII and moving onto stuff like Breath of Fire. However, VIII sucked big time. OFB, after the orphanage scene, I really didn't give a shit anymore.

I know I'm in the minority here, but I'll always have a soft spot for VIII. It was the first one I ever played and finished and I just loved the graphics and everything. I've played VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X but still like VIII the best.

Actually I think I may like X more but I'm not really that far into it yet.

Hang on, someone actually took the time to USE Gau? He was about as useless as a character could be, IMHO. Even if you spent hours collecting Rages out the wazoo, almost all of them were either (a) equal to or less powerful than the other characters' attacks, or (b) duplicated in Strago's Lores. Strago and the others didn't require hours on the Veldt to build them up, nor did they need to go berzerk and target enemies at random to do their thing.

Gau made Mog seem useful. Only Umaro was worse.

I'm just going to assume that you mean IX (9) not XI (11) as XI is the online one that's not out yet. Of course, if you have played it, feel free to share your thoughts on it

I hear you on the Gau thing. That loser was pretty much useless. The worse thing about him though was the music on the Veldt. Holy crap, that's enough to drive a person clinically insane. Just endlessly looping. It was horrible. And I don't even want to tell you how many times I had to hear "Oooouuuaaaooo. I'm Gau. I'm your friend. Let's travel together." I spent so much time trying to get attacks for him, I remember I thought it was so cool when I got him back and saw another space filled up. I actually thought I would eventually get them all. Oh, how foolish I was.

It's hard to tell my favorite, I would probably go with VI, because it was just so grand in every aspect, like a big movie epic or something. Plus it had the coolest villain in the entire series. Kefka got all the greatest lines. Not like the crappy villains in the new games. How much of a damn disappointment was that freakin' last boss in IX? VII was awesome, VIII was enjoyable and, I think, underrated, and IX was a cool throwback to the older games. The one that will always hold a special place in my heart is IV. I was in, like, second grade when I played it and it was an experience. I never knew a game could have a story like that. And the characters were great. Rydia was the shit at the end of the game. The only person who could cast Meteo and not keel over (You suck Tellah, frickin 90 MP my ass!) Edge also kicked all kinds of ass.

Depends on which Rages you use--you get one "fight" and one special attack/spell, plus some have status changes. Magitek Armor is probably the best basic one. Retainer is great also (Gen. Leo's "Shock" command.) He and Mog are also the only ones you can put Snow Mufflers on.

Umaro rocks with the Rage Ring--his "throw partner" attack is the easiest way to recover from Sleep or Confuse.

And let's make the plot make NO FUCKING SENSE! They were in the same orphanage, you know. Yeah, that's possible. Good graphics - and the parade scene where you first see Edea is *awesome*, but a real step back.)



You sir, have summed up everything I always wanted to say about FF8. I HATED THAT GAME WITH A BURNING PASSION!

If the best FF can be determined by which one I still play, then I suppose the greatest is the original FF1. I still play it on NES and it never gets old. I still get a kick out of using the floater, getting the airship and doing Mach 10 all around the world map.

TSELES B HSUP. A magic spell?

FF2 (with Cecil and stuff) is definitely a close second. I loved the overall story and theme of the game. I really could never get into FF3 because most of the characters (Mog, Gau) were worthless, I hated Kefka (in an X-pac kind of way) and the game sucked after the world was destroyed.

My opinion about Chrono Trigger is already well known, so we'll leave it at that.

In order: V and VI are tied, followed closely by 9 and X (are tied), then IV, followed by Mystic Quest. Then VIII. Yes, I hated VIII that much that I liked Mystic Quest MORE than VIII.

I'm currently playing X and in all I enjoy it with the exception of some of the sidequests to get the Celestial Weapons. Though I have had a lot of fun in the Moster Arena and creating my own custom weapons, and blitzball is a fun distraction in between bribing Giant Malboro's in the Omega Dungeon.

Anyone else hear aout Square re-releasing I-III with retooled graphics and cut scenes. The pics I saw in EGM were nice. They originally weren't going to release it in the US due to a perceived lack of interest. That was until every US otaku raised holy hell about it.

Of the four I've played, they go in this order:

VI
V
I
IV

6 had the great story, and I *wuv* the class system of 5. 4 just wasn't that compelling, and 1's interesting for the first half, then fun for the second.
