In this handy guide (this is merely volume 1) are shameful things that you must under ALL circumstances keep to yourself. Doing so would be the equivalent to painting a big scarlet letter across your Internet handles.
And I have use GameFAQ before. I also think FFIV is one of the best game of all time. And yes a video game character has gotten me excited before. Why would I be ashamed of that?
The pigeons in GTA4 are to hard to find without a guide!
someone please make a "7 lists a web moderator should neva make" list
I agree with the bit about FF7. FF7 -- while a decent RPG -- is by no means the best. Anyone who truly believes that FF7 is the best RPG is either: 1) Lying 2) Never played more than one or two RPGs 3) Blinded by nostalgia because FF7 was one of the first RPGs they ever played
Iv played so many J-RPG's notice you didn't mention the difference although its huge. And I cant remember 1 game made around the same time as 7 that was even close. I still play it to this day on the PC the only game I value with higher regard on the PS1 then Final Fantasy 7 is Suikoden 2 as that game still hasn't aged graphically to this day and is completely playable even now. Final Fantasy 7 is amazing by any stands and not many J-RPG's hold much weight to it. You tell me a J-RPG that sold 9.8million copys like FF7. When Final Fantasy 7 first got released people honestly believe there was only one game on the PSX the rest didn't matter.
Yeah, because you're not allowed to have the opinion that a game you have played is the best one you have ever played... I liked it more than any RPG I have ever played, and I have played pretty much all of the ones you will see in a top 5 list anywhere... Hell, I like it more than any game I have ever played, what's wrong with that?
I actually used a walkthrough whilst playing Ocarina of Time,IN MY DEFENSE I WAS YOUNG
I always end up using FAQs for FF games, but just for the extras, since some of the stuff would be impossible to find out without it.
I have a Wii.
I used faqs for FFXII for those hunts.
Its just admitting they are not real gamers and instead just empty shells of the ps2 fans that moved on to X moses 3 parts the sea
That something you learned at the church of bloodmask?
I used a FAQ to complete FF X-2 at 100%, and yes, i... sort of... enjoyed playing the game. But please don't kill me !
FFX-2 was pretty cool. The Active Battle System was one of my favorites and I am also proud of passing the game 100% plus fighting every monster Oversouled. (I think over souled was the name) I was also pretty hooked on BLITZBALL!!! (On FFX as well =P)
Should i be ashamed about being able to change their clothes and enjoyed it?
You mean... like Kiss Dolls?
Heh, of course I know the Konami code. Not to mention that Eva says it when you hold her up in MGS3. =P
Well everyone use faqs and those who dont are lying :p .There are stuff , especially in jrpg with multiple paths and many characters to unlock , that are impossible to do without them . Hell without the faqs you most likely dont even know about half of those "missing" features . How the heck else would i know that in suikoden at an X precise and given moment , i'm supposed to meet a character i didnt even know existed , so i could recruit him ? As for the ffvii thing , it's more than old time FF players were sick of newcomers dismissing everything pre ff7 .... or refusing to play them because of graphics . opinions are opinions , but it is widely believed by many that an hypothetical version of FF6 with F7's graphics ( well back then , now it would have to be superior ones ) and direction , would probably kick FF7's bottom . I believe so myself , and that ff7 isnt even the second best FF title , even if i still think that FF7 was a great game and can understand why would people starting with it , would remember it so dearly .
Use Gamefaqs? Hell, I ran the MGS2, MGS3, and MGS4 boards. And FFVII is ONE OF the best games of all time. Right up there with Ocarina and MGS.
hmmm A Video Game Character Got Me… Excited. how about i enjoy japanese ecchi/hentai/weird games for other reasons than the storyline :)
Uh...Are using faqs supposed to be taboo? I find them quite helpful in quite a few situations. You know those times when your sitting their scratching your head after exhausting almost every road or resource within' the game to try and get by. Meh, I bet the author would admit that they have used faqs before =p
I remember I used GameFaqs for Shadow of the Colossus because there was a few Colossus I just couldn't figure out how to beat.... I remember I spent probably about 2 or 3 hours fighting the Final Colossus and I just couldn't figure out how to take him out, so I used GameFaqs as a last resort. I only use walkthroughs if I'm REALLY stuck in one particular spot, but that's it. No matter how hardcore a gamer is, I think that everyone gets stuck in a game every know and then, and I have no problem admitting it and I'll use a GameFaq only if I really have to.
Yeah i was in that same boat. lol It probably actually took me 3 hours to get the bastard. I guess its good i didn't have to use a guide or i wouldn't be a true gamer. (> <)
What's wrong with games like Fate/Stay Night or Tsukihime, oh wait these games are not meant for children and will never see the light of day in America. Actually I like features like this, top 10 game booties, how to become a fanboy, these articles are great for entertainment.
A casual gamer wouldn't even beat a game as long as FFVII even using a faq... That's a fact.
That would depend on what you mean by beating it. If you mean just getting through the game, nah, I beat it without a guide in 35 hours. If you mean completing all the side quests and getting everything though, yeah itd be nearly impossible without a guide.
lol, Funny article. I don't own a wii. Anyone that's played Tomb Raider has tried turning the camera to look down Lora's shirt at least once. Doom wasn't the last PC game I played but its pretty close to it. I'll take a console over a PC any day. Mario Missing?? I would have to go with SMB.3. That code will be stuck in my head till the day I die. I hate to break it to you kiddies, but FFIII/VI takes VII any day. Your damn right I knew how to kill those Tonberry's.
Hardcore as they come. And I use Gamefaqs from time to time. My last PC game was Half-Life 2, but I still play Doom and Quake from time to time. And I will also confess my enjoyment of all things Lego and Viva Pinata in gaming. Nice diversion from blowing things the hell up (which I enjoy even more).
Then again, a hardcore gamer wouldn't have a 360 in the first place.
I have played all of them so BLAH! Great system, great story, amazing game.
I Play Wii Sports by Myself. - I play real sports and hate Wii Sports, it tried it once and said WTF IS THIS SH!T A Video Game Character Got Me… Excited. - So? A Picture of a female or an image of a female in a game is the same. How the fuc|< I am not going to look at Ivy's Boobs in SCIV? If I don't or you don't, then you are not straight. I Haven’t Played a PC Title Since Doom. - Nope PC is my main gaming platform and the best imo. Last I played was Counter Strike: Source Clan Match and my fav FPS this year is Crysis: Warhead My Favorite Mario Game is Mario is Missing. - WTF is this game I Don’t Know the Konami Code. - up up down down left right left right B A..or X O if on PS Final Fantasy 7 is the Best Game of All Time. - MGS is in my opinion. Final Fantasy VI is better. Kefka makes sephiroth look like a kid. I Used a FAQ. - yes i did to get some of the ultimate weapons in some games like final fantasy and some games for 100%, but I do pass the game under meduim 1st time w/o any help exploring alone.
