RIP PS2 - Final Fantasy X: Blitzing Towards Oblivion

Final Fantasy X is a notable title in the series for many reasons; it was the first on the Playstation 2 and it was the first to contain voice acting. The way this game portrays, along with its theme of absent fathers, the true strength of its hero in the face of unspeakable misery makes it arguably the finest game in the whole series. (Final Fantasy X, PS2, Retro)

This was a short but sweet article about a game that has yet to be matched by any generation of rpg's. It's such a shame that the series has went from this to the half assed crap that's out now. This game was not only good when it came to gameplay, but the story and characters really were well thought out, almost to the point where you actually cared about them as if they were real people. If it wasn't for the promise of the HD remake I would have nothing to do with Squeenix at all. They even ruined my favorite rpg franchise, Dragon Warrior, with it's cliched characters and the thought of Dragon Quest X online with a subscription makes me wonder if Squeenix ever played the older games at all? I hope Dragon Quest X is good though. But still, nothing comes close to the classics. NOTHING.

Persona 4 was way better than FF X. And many reviews from the past can attest to that. There's your match.

I'm playing Persona 4 Golden right now (I'm near the end), it's one of the only games on Vita that are worth playing, but it's certainly not as good as FFX. From story, to battle system, pacing, art direction, cutscenes, dungeons, and... well... everything, FFX is better. Collecting and fusing personas is addictive, but not as addictive as the sphere board.

To be fair, I hated Blitzball. But Persona 4 doesn't even have a minigame to compare it to.

If it werent for FFX HD SE would be totally irrelevant.

My memories of enjoyment with FFX is always somewhat dampened by the knowledge that is was followed with FFX-2...

I loved FFX just as much as the others & possibly more except for 11, 13, & 14.. Fantastic creation & i hope future sequels can make me fall in love with them as i did in the past.. Hated Waka tho.. he just annoyed the hell out of me..

FFX-2 was a good game but too damn cheesy with all the pop songs & costume changing with those horrible posses.. ugh, why did 13, & 14 drop the ball? Square needs to step it up nx gen especially with that sexy new luminous engine.. Please dont make the combat, exploration, leveling, NPC shops, & summons suck!

I loved FF-X,the story was touching & the gameplay was fun,with Squares horrible business decisions lately,who knows if this hd version will even see the light of day & if so there probably won't be a USA version.
