The thing about Final Fantasy is everyone will point out a favorite in the series for him/her.

My favorite is FFXII and i thought it was a masterpiece.

VIII all the way. Junction system was so fun to use, triple triad, story, character development, not to mention probably the greatest soundtrack in any FF game.

Could not agree more :)

Bloody 10th in the list ¬¬

I never understood the appeal for 12. Mind sharing what you liked about it?

DarkOcelet1274d ago

I loved everything about it...

The cast especially Balthier and Fran and i think they are the best duo in the series. The amount of awesomeness they had is unmatched. Vaan and Penelo are cool. Bashe and Ashe were badass too.

The gameplay... I hated the game so much at first that i even returned it to the store only to buy it back one month later to spend over 1000 hour in it lol :D

The OST.... Was amazing, nuff said.

The environment... It was varied and big and beautiful.

The graphics... The best on PS2

The monsters... I loved the monster design and the huge amount of variety in the monsters in it and i loved the chaining system which gives you more loot the more monster of the same type you defeat. It even spawns rare ones when you get a high chain.

The Story... Now some are skeptical about it but i thought it was awesome and the protagonists shined in the game with some witty dialogue.

In the end though, not everyone will like it but if you do, you will be hooked for a long long long time :)

Give it another shot if you can.

FF9 for me, it was also my first FF game.

To be honest, FFXIV is just FFXII done right.

Which is actually kinda funny that I say that because it's LITERAL. There were supposed to be no more single player FF's after X. Once they realized that that wasn't a good plan they pulled the 180 on XII.

It's just a shallow MMO. No roles, no classes, no actual meaningful skills. Dragon Age is also FFXII done better.

Not that FFXII's gambits didn't revolutionize AI.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 over Final Fantasy X-2

In my opinion:


Not counting MMOs, spinoffs, or sequels. FFXIV ARR and FF Tactics are good though.

DarkOcelet1274d ago

Finally, someone who likes FFXII the most like me. You and I mate are so damn rare lol.

ZaWarudo1274d ago

I LOVE FFXII. i remember playing that game for 10 hours straight the day i got it.

I would kill for an HD remaster for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita.

jkoz1274d ago

I remember playing about 25-30 hours of XII and then just ended up stopping dead in my tracks. Don't know why, I was enjoying what I was playing. I guess I've partially held off on playing in hopes of a PS3/4/vita remaster like X got. I'd gladly pay for that upgrade. Plus, trophies :P

6, 9, 8, 4, 13-2, 5, 13, 7, 10, 1, 2, 3, LR13, 10-2, 11, 14 (fine in their own right but not really enjoyable when I have to pay a ton of money and do tons of pointless stuff to get bits and pieces of the story)
