TheGameReviews' Heath Hooker takes readers back to the emotional journey of Final Fantasy X. "This is my story..."
Final Fantasy X.....Makes me want to cry just thinking about it. So beautiful...lol
FFX is the best FF out there. it has all the elements except bad ass villain seymore was not like mighty sephiroth but still the game was very very good. thanks
Was it that good?
i wont say anything for u. just buy it and play then u will see what i and above guy are talking about. its the best JRPG ever, to me atleast. it even rival FFVII in terms of twists and story. thanks
I never got a chance to play 10. Sounds like I should go look for it somewhere eh?
Wow. Game is amazing. Def try it out.
FF9 is my favourite FF, followed by 7 and then 10. Whatever you do, though, DO NOT buy FF10-2. What an absolute waste, completely rubbish game. I put >500 hours into FF10 I think; the battle system is just amazing, way more balanced than FF8 and deeper than FF9, very tactical too. There is so much to do as well and the storyline isn't half bad either. Shame about some of the voice acting... I think FF lost something special when they started voicing the characters - http://www.youtube.com/watc... lol
lol I bought ff-2...haven't even opened it though since I heard it is garbage and that I have too many games to play atm.
FFx was the RPG that made me love RPGs after that is wen i went back and played 7 8 and 9 but 10 is the BEST JRPG there is for me !! A MUST PLAY FOR ANY ONE!
I've ever played.
One of my favorite FF games of all time
Final Fantasy VI may have been ugly since it was on the SNES, but it was one of the few JPRGs that was a multi-layered story that dealt with more than just simple character stories. It touched on the subject of loyalty and honor amongst a murderous regime; the prospect of love without romance; sacrifice without holding onto ideologies and the necessary measures breaking down organized constitutions for equality. Other Final Fantasy games may have been directed better and had better evolution of character studies, but FFVI is still a kick-butt game. Just thought I'd throw that out there among all the FFX and FFVII praise.
...I know I'm not in the majority when I say I couldn't stand FFX. In my opinion, this is where Square had their downfall as developers. The game's overly linear, I don't like any of the characters, but I will say the general plot was good, albeit poorly executed. Of course, this is all my opinion, and not a very popular one at that... I gotta give it credit for making me buy a PS2 back in 2002. Also, I love love LOVE the combat system. The absolute best form of turn based gameplay. Love it to death. I wish they had stuck with it longer, because it's great.
This is my favorite FF, as well, followed by 4... although I haven't played through 6 yet. This game is immense, featuring tons of side quests and mini-goals and achievements to strive for. It has a deep and engaging storyline and is rich with characterization. The world itself also feels real; as you travel from one end to the other, you see all of the different people of the world and how they view and interact with one another. There is not simply a story to cover the characters and their journey, but a fleshed-out background that details the political and social situation of the entire game world. Combat is traditional turn-based, but allows players to swap out their characters on the fly to make use of each of their unique strengths, and each character is custom-leveled using the unique and well-designed sphere grid. Simply put, this game is incredible. 92% average score from all media outlets, and that was before everyone started dishing out 10s if a game has good graphics and the controller makes your character move.
Yes, it's that good.
I loved getting stoned and playing this game. The way the screen breaks like glass when you start a battle was epic when you are stoned. I wish FF would go back to the Sin era in the franchise. I would love to see a game with Tidus as Sin.
the only ff i ever played besides 7 and i thought 10 was better. Still played it years after i got it.
I love the ending of 10, so beautiful and nostalgic. I agree with OuterHaven that 10 is better than 7, but at the time when 7 was out it was one of the best rpgs.
this game is so good, it's the only rpg i finish it 3 time, which is super rare for me to finish any game twice
Still got my copy 4 the PS2. Like solideagel1 said further above the main antagonist of the game in seymour isnt quite as epic or interessting as most of the other villains in the FF series, but Sin is without a doubt the best story driven character/concept in the series which keeps you hooked, definately the best FF game. Its similiar to how chrono trigger revolves around defeating lavos but twists as the story progresses. Definately pick it up if you havent!! Arguably the best PS2 RPG (Xenosaga...?!) and possibly my fav of all time, story is just so immersive and intriguing.
FFX, the last greatest RPG with a Final and Fantasy in it's name that I have played in a while. Hope it changes with XIII/Versus XIII.
X was the end for me Square Soft 1992-2003.
I remember this game like it was yesterday. It was definitely one of my favorite RPGs of all time(along with Kingdom Hearts 1) and it had one of the best stories of any game ever. Come to think of it, FFX has a better story than 90% of Hollywood movies out today. I wish that games can get back to telling stories like FFX did and stop worrying so much about techinal superiority and graphical splendor.
Best RPG i've ever played too. FFX was just tooo awesome. TBH I don't even know if FFX13 can top that.
the worst final fantasy ever
Not... FFX-2 takes the crown. ;-D And it has competition. FFII, FFIII and FFV were really crappy too. FF, FFIV, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, FFX and even FFXII were better that the ones I just mentioned above. FFVII was the one that made the series popular. FFVIII was the best selling FF game ever. FFIX was a great mix of new school and old-school. Most of the best FF games are on PlayStation consoles. Maybe that's why people got all angry when FFXIII went multi-plat even though the series started on Nintendo consoles it is more like it were PS exclusive since forever.
FF 10 and Xenogears are for me the pinnicle of the RPG genre
Those were the days. I wonder what's going on with Square-Enix since I, then Executive producer of FFX, Hironobu Sakaguchi and my good freind Nobuo Uematsu left the camp... Check out Lost Odyssey, I you still love turn-Based...lol FFX had great music. The world of spira and blitzball..
One of my favorite FF game no doubt. I've beaten it numerous of times and I rarely play single player game muliple times. I just love this game.
Until FFX I never knew what kind a videogame could bring out. Before this I played the Tekken, Twisted Metal, Crash, and Pokemon series and I enjoyed them all for their own qualities of fun but never did I feel connected to a videogame. This all changed with Final Fantasy X, i don't even think a movie hit me this hard before. After playing this, I moved on to games that had deeper meanings than just good graphics and gameplay. I found that games can be more than just a game.
for me this is my second favourite FINAL FANTASY game since being made 3D. I loved this game, I put so many hours in it while I was in high school.
CPT - Cape Town? Just curious...
The relationship between Yuna and Tidus was beautiful. Not as good as the spark between Fei and Elly - that love transcends generations...
FF X was truly a geat game and I totally agree on that "to zanarkand" part. The ending was so touching but the bad thing is ... I don't like the eng dub. Compared to the japanese one ... meh >_>
That was the same for me too that was the 1st game that had emotion in it for me (And I played the series since the 5th ) I think that's when I realized that games could be more than Shooting things and became a RPG fan :)
Yes, I thought the worst part about the game was the English VO, as well. The voices were meant to sync up with the character animations, so they would always have strange and awkward pauses in the dialog.
Yes i would agree by far final fanatasy 10 is the best in the series, then comes final fantasy 8, 12. Final fantasy was so emotional, that made me cry!!!
Not a fan of X. Played it for 15 hours and stopped from sheer boredom
It's hard to pick between FFX and Xenogears. My favorite Rpg's of all time. I think I would go back and play FFX again before Xenogears just becuase I love having a game that is all voice acted. Really gave the characters personality. Amazing games, both of them.
I have always liked games tha have characters you can relate to or can evoke some emotions. FFX did it for me.
Yeah, I felt the same about ffx.
Final Fantasy VII was the best... For me personally, Final Fantasy X is the best. The best gameplay, best sound, best soundtrack, and most important of all in an RPG, best story... I just love the story of FFX ... Looking at that pic, it reminds me how i first had tears for a video game character... :) The story is really powerful and amaazing... those who never played it, surely has missed out one of the best games ever, imo.
