Final Fantasy X Then And Now: Has The Game Changed, Or Have I?

"It’s funny how much we change."
-PSLS comparing Final Fantasy X on PS2 to its remaster not just on a game level, but on a personal level in light of the 12 years that have passed in between releases. (Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster: Collector’s Edition, PS Vita, PS3)

That zelda ass picture is so distracting. I feel like I see a link to it in every story. For me, FF games get better with time not worse. FFX aged well for me.

Yes it is quite distracting lol.

I was 7 years old when I first played FFX and I only made it to Kilika Island above and got stuck on the boss there. I returned two years later and got to the part Mushroom Rock, then again a year later and made it to Defender X. I have had a rough history with FFX because I was never good enough or understood how to properly play the game. I played it last year emulated on PC and it was a pretty smooth run with hardly any grinding. I thought FF13 was harder lol.

This is probably complaints about how JRPGs seem like they are not what they used to be and about how they dont compare to newer western games but I never had that kind of experience. I love the traditional JRPG and even ones with newer faster paced battle systems x because IMO they are quite refreshing in todays fairly stale market. (It was kind of long so TL;DR and the quote about the PSVita version looking better than 1080p with very good AA is laughable)

I had a similar experience with KH1 and I always got stuck on the giant lizard on Tarzans world. I was really bad at JRPGs when I was young, except Pokemon which may have depth but is extremely easy for anyone to play. The more I play FF a (and KH) the more I notcie and the more I enjoy them. I know how the games work and usually I manage to beat bosses on first attempts with small amount of grinding or none at all. This allows me to focus on everything else and smaller details

I played the original with my action replay cheat cartridge with infinite money and spheres.

It will be good to play it the way it was meant to be played.

My second favourite behind FFXII (I've played 6,7,9,10,12,13. I put 200+ hours into 12)

It has the best soundtrack I've heard from the series and the combat was fun and strategic

If I remember straight, the way I beat the very last boss was by just casting reflect on it so whenever it tried to heal itself it'd heal my party

Easiest boss fight ever lmao, and I was very satisfied with myself that it actually worked

honestly if you wanted to get the full experience of ff12 it would take you like 200hrs lol! Though on a decent run for me now is about ~80hrs to 100% the game only because i know what to do.

Most people don't seem to like it, but the game was huge and filled with side quest, hunts, and rare games to keep you busy!

I went back and tried the game today after all these years. The one thing that I now noticed was how bad the voice acting was lol... its god awful, no emotion and sounds like people just read from a piece of paper... but the game itself is still one of the better ff's imo.

Yeah the voice acting isn't great. Not too bad for the first ever Final Fantasy to include it though, at least ^_^
ALICE666  +   288d ago
oh yeah, its been a long while and forgot it was the first fully voiced one.. so I can forgive it for that. :P
