The draw skill was a mistake and the plot became out right silly, an example being they grew up together as orphans and the only one who remembers doesn't say anything.

I don't feel like arguing, but in Irvine's defense, it is kind of awkward when people don't recognise you and you are a bit socially awkward. Its happened to me and people I've worked with in real life. Irvine actually mentions this is why he didn't speak up, because nobody else seemed to remember, he didn't know how to bring it up. Selphie or Zell would have probably said something but the others would just leave it I think.

I don't feel like arguing, but I'm going to say you're wrong, lol :P

But, it's a valid point. I just don't think it was executed especially well.

Yeah I added a bit to the end saying I agree that FF games get a little silly at times but they can get away with it in my opinion.

I was just teasing ya. If everyone followed the same "rules" for stories, every story would be the same.



Great game, sad more can't experience it with a remake or remaster.

 I should point out that I still loved the game when it came out and was just pointing out some strange plot's, You have the overarching idea of connection being played out in the game, but the making them orphans comes across like an idea that came about because they were stuck in how to work everybody into it, so you ended up with a decision that rather than being a natural fit stuck out enough that it had to be explained away, while you would be right in saying it's not a big thing,it just added another layer on what for me turned out to be a game that toward the end became a tangled mess story wise, all the rest I thoroughly enjoyed apart from drawing making things a little easy.

Plot wise, it begins at a fairly simple pace, then you would swear that Nomura has taken some part of the script to re-write some parts to be some of the most convuloted things I've ever seen in a story.

Also, where were people when the other black sheep (FFV) needed it's own Happy Birthday thread ? HUH ?

My gf's favorite game of all time.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Best ff to date!



Wish there was a magic meter or something, repeated GFs got tiresome.

I enjoyed FF8 but its too easy power your way through the game. But I guess its ultimately the experience that counts. I still prefer FF7, 9 and 10 over it but its a good time.

Dood.... that's FInal Fantasy in a nut shell. If you can name a single FF game that didn't end up with a stupidly silly and/or convoluted plot by the end then it probably shouldn't be considered an actual FF game



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
