It makes me feel so stinking old when I hear people say that Final Fantasy X was their first Final Fantasy game. Not mad, mind you -- just old ^^;;

I feel like there needs to be an initiation for young gamers where they have to play Final Fantasy IV or something before they can play any of the new Final Fantasies.

Best FF's=FF6 to FF10

Worst FF's=everything after FF10

And by FF6 you actually mean FFIV. IV-X is the golden age for FF in my book.

Great show. Love thinking back to the early days of FF.

That is so interesting with the guy talking about the International version of FF12. The system he is talking about is reminiscent of FF Tactics with the job system.

I agree with the guy that saying that FF12 wasn't bad it was just too different for many of the longtime players. The analogy about the story revolving around the world rather the characters was very interesting the more i look back at it.

Anyways my first was FF4 & my fave is a tie between it & FF7. Mainly out of all the FF games it was FF7 that i spent the most time on & invested a lot of time on it. The characters & story really hit a spot with me at the time & i remember so many memories about playing that game.

I really liked the different approach XII had to things. It's not my favorite, but I feel it's got the best story.

I DISLIKED the gambit system, though; tinker with it enough, and you didn't even have to take part in battles(I also didn't like that the License board allowed any character to use any weapon; to me, it takes away from the characters' identities).

My first FF was Mystic Quest on SNES. Never did finish that game. My favorite is VIII. I've spent more hours in that game than any other game I've ever played. Hell, I've LOST more hours to old corrupted saves than I've spent in many other games. I can't say, like some, that there's been an FF that I HAVEN'T enjoyed, but still none of them top VIII in all areas.

Re: The License Board
I too favor systems where people have specialties instead of everyone being able to be pretty much the same.

That's one more cool thing about the International version of FFXII, once you pick a job, that person has their own unique job board. Their license grid won't be like any one else's.

My first was Final Fantasy III DS, which I absolutely enjoyed. My favorite is probably VI (GBA). I've beaten I-VII and I've played VIII, IX, and XIII.
