Balthier had some great lines.

''I play the leading man, who else?''

Personally, the voice does remind me a little of Richard O'Brien (The Crystal Maze/Rocky Horror Show)

Skateboard4569d ago

I thought the voice acting in that game is superb.

I would love to see FF XII-2.

Kee4569d ago

No, the voice acting was great, he was still an annoying character.

256bit4569d ago

balthier was the coolest he should of been the lead instead of that lame guy forgot is name. vaan or vash which ever it was.

squallheart4569d ago

Actually if you pay close attention there really wasnt no true lead. Each characters story took an integral part of the overall game plot. You could play as anyone you wanted to and everything would be connected. This is what i loved about the game where the conflict was mostly an empire situation where the war was the main protagonist.

gamesmaster4569d ago

i thought every character in XII was annoying.

Retroplayer4568d ago

I thought FFXII was one of the better FF games. The characters were quite good I thought, especially Balthier. That's why I interviewed him! :p

Both requels over 2 and 3? Clowns. Those are two of the most boring games I've ever played.

Snookies12114d ago

GoW 3 was amazing, but I personally hated just one thing. (This is on me alone, because I was dumb, lol.) I hated that you couldn't skip cutscenes on repeat playthroughs. I had to go back through the game a third time because I missed one trophy accidentally on my way to the platinum... The cutscenes were great the first go round, even the second... But the third was pretty agonizing.

Haven't played Ragnarok, but I still think GoW 4 is a wonderful game in its own right. Not sure how I would stack them up against each other honestly.

Monstieur114d ago (Edited 114d ago )

I don't consider the reboot part of the original series. The original series were high-skill games with combos and rewards for mixing things up.

solideagle113d ago

lol square, square and triangle is the only combo you needed. I have played all of them on the hardest difficulties...

Golfcoachh114d ago

Maybe I’m just old school but I just couldn’t get into the last two. Maybe it’s the slower action and more story telling but the original trilogy was by far my favorite.

Crows90114d ago

It's not that youre old school. They're different genres

JL2930113d ago (Edited 113d ago )

Me either, at all. It's just yap yap yap. They try to be a RPG's instead of being action games like they used to be.

Fluke_Skywalker113d ago

I'd put the two psp games over 3 in terms of story any day. But not over 2.

My favorite was part 2 and I think Ragnarok is better that 2018.

Shane Kim114d ago

The newer games are better imo.

ravens52114d ago

There is no worst. Except for Ascension, only cause I didn't play it lol. They are all masterpieces. 1,2,3, 2018 and Ragnarok. 1 of, if not the greatest video game franchise...besides MetalGear.

Snookies12114d ago

Oh wow, I actually forgot that Ascension even existed... I never played it either.

Crows90114d ago

I like ascension. It was different and some interesting combat additions.

darthv72114d ago

If you didnt play it, how could you call it the worst? Its not as bad as the media portrayed it. Honestly the worst are those flash games. they arent even considered true GoW games but in name only. At least Ascension is a real GoW game.

ravens52113d ago

Not saying it's a terrible game. Just mean it's at the bottom of my list. I played a little bit of it. Jus to me, compared to the other main games, it's last.

Fluke_Skywalker113d ago

Ascension is the only GOW game I never finished. Hated it.

Inverno114d ago

Can't agree, older games do so much more than the last two. More weapons, magic abilities, enemies are more varied, level design is also more aesthetically pleasing, and agree with those who say that they shouldn't have removed jumping. Was a time I'd agree, but those old games are so so much better, that they really should've looked into bringing into the reboot/sequels.

Crows90114d ago (Edited 114d ago )

If a game is good then a game is good. Doesn't matter what came before or what comes after.

Inverno114d ago

Of course it matters. If not for what what came before there wouldn't be an after. And if something is great before then you strive to make it just as good if not better, after. I personally don't think there's a fair way to judge the new with the old because the newer games are still essentially a reboot, and went a way different direction. But I still believe the old games did it better. I'm probably bias though since I've been going back to old games and have been finding that they lack all the annoying aspects that devs have shoehorned into new games to fluff out game time.
