The one Final Fantasy you should play

VB writes: If you have never played a game in the Final Fantasy series, if you have somehow managed to avoid exposure to Square Enix's behemoth for the twenty-five years of its existence, if you can't tell a chocobo from a malboro, and if you wanted to change that... where would you begin?

I've got about 10 PSone classics I downloaded just for the Vita update! I couldn't resist that Final Fantasy sale a few months ago ^_^
I can't wait to sit back put my earphones in and play FFIX on my Vita and hear the opening track

FFIX is my favourite Final Fantasy
FFVII is a very close second but they're just so different to each other you have to own them both.
Heck if you have the cash get FF,II,III,IV,V,VI,VII,VIII,IX and X when/if we get a HD release. Also FFXII is a great game I just think it should of been a spin off. I'm not a fan of FFXIII or XIII-2.

Awesome game, one of the best in the series.

Kratoscar20082260d ago

The game is okay, Ff8 or 10 are better options.

Hicken2260d ago

Agreed. Not that I dislike IX at all, but I'd start with VIII or X.

Then again, if there was ONE you should play, I wouldn't. Because that's stupid. They're all such unique games that I'd either play them all, or play none. I'm still working on it, but I look forward to the day when I've owned and beaten every FF in the franchise.

Apart from XI, XIII, XIII-2 and XIV i have finished all numbered FF games and 8 and 10 is on the top of my head as Truly amazing games (FF5 is my favorite for other reasons)while FF9 had the classic feel but i didnt feel it was epic at all.

FF8 and FFX endings are truly memorable.

Final Fantasy IX is the first RPG I ever played; it introduced me to a whole new genre of video games. And I still to this day consider it one of the best video games I have ever played

It is probably just the way it goes for different people. For ME it was Final Fantasy 7. It was the first of the franchise I played, and of course before the reputation the game being overrated and the others that branched off of it have been received. I loved the game to pieces, especially Yuffie, Vincent, RedXIII and Cloud :). I still remember letting a friend around here borrow it and then finding out his mom had actually thrown the game out. Such a sad, sad tale.

I loved FF7,8,9 and 10 to pieces and KIND OF X-2...It wasn't all to bad. They all had their own way of being great :) It would be so hard for me to pick ONE Final Fantasy and recommend it because they all have their own impact on me.

Your experiences seem very similar to mine because 7 was also my first and favorite. Also, like you, I have enjoyed all of the FF's I've played since then (8, 9, X, X-2, XII, and XIII). Admittedly, I've enjoyed more than others, but each have had their good points with me.

Tex1172260d ago

That is probably the right pick.

My favorite is VI.

I really liked XII

Hated X.

Tolerated but ultimately wasn't a huge fan of XIII

FFVIII kinda weird
