Every FF game is extremely linear, with FFXV and the MMOs being the only exception. The games open up in the very late stages of the game but it's mostly just an illusion of openness.

I'm not a particular fan of FFX, then again I also don't like FFVII and FFVI very much. But if you want to play any FF game then play FFIX. It's the most solid and polished of all FF games.

For me FFX was a big departure from VII, VIII and IX which I loved. They changed the formula and never went back and for me, it was a bad thing. The newer ones are not bad games, but they just don't feel like FF to me like the older ones. They feel like graphical polish has taken most of the work and the games have become linear and action based, the sense of adventure and exploring the world is gone. FFXIII was the last one I bothered to play, it just sealed the deal and I decided FF is not for me anymore.



Fantastic game!

So i'm a RPG/JRPG fan and a fan of some FF games i liked FFXV quite a bit and i freaking can't wait for FFVII remake ! Also i might pick up FFVIII remaster cause there are rumors around that it might get a physical release. I wanna get into more FF games and X remaster has been on my mind for quite some time now, i really wanna buy it but every time i look at some gameplay vids i get discouraged because i'm scared of how very linear the game looks (not that i have anything against linear games far from it) but somehow it just doesn't click with me being a FF game... i need more freedom in my JRPG.

It's linear, but it's very story driven. There's more choices later in the game.   

The game is amazing, and it's one of my favorites to this day.

Also X's world, character design isn't quite my taste i'm more into worlds or better i should say i'm a sucker for worlds like FFXV,FFVII and Xenoblade Chronicles you know fantasy mixed with crazy badass weapons and technology but over here in FFX there is literally a guy that attacks with a volleyball lol. It all just seems mehh to me so i want you to kick my ass down in the comments for saying all this and convince me to buy this game!

Woah, don't diss my good man Wakka.  He's got all these:

Ummm badass ?? xD but i wonder how can he slam dunk those metal balls with spikes though. :P

Well if FFIX ever get's the remaster treatment i will definitely give it a go.

It did.

It's available on pretty much all current systems.

When one person tells you it's boring and another tells you it's not...

It's a Final Fantasy game, all FF experiences are new ones and no matter what, the quality of the game in general is always outstanding. Just give it a go!

I hear ya .. FF is one divisive franchise for sure. I know i should definitely give it a go i would love to play all of FF games in time or at least try them out but i wanted to hear some opinions here first and it seems like that FFX is one of the most loved FF games out there.

Oh that's right i forgot ! wth is wrong with me, i think i wanted to say if it ever get's a physical release since i'm not a fan of digital but that's not happening. I have to check this one out and look at some gameplay vids.



FFX is in my bottom 3 FF games (along with FF8 and FF13). I did not like the music, or the linearity, and I did not like the overly anime-ish characters. And don't get me started on the laughing scene. However, the premise I do really like. The whole 10 year Sin cycle thing is really cool. Too bad it was wasted on a sub-par Final Fantasy game.



FF XII is the better game for me:
No anime characters or romantic plot.
Great combat system
Exploration and side content
Great Medieval setting with some sci-fi.
Plot is very political and characters are good. people dont like Vaan because is not a cool anime character, he is a commoner teen in a word in war. Him and Penelo are in the story to represent the common citizen in this situation. Ashe plot is what move the story.

FF X
Stereotypical anime characters (Tidus is your extrovert care free protagonist and Yuna the Shy, serious girl..of course they fall in love)
Linear progression (But with side quests)
Excellent turn battle combat system and character progression
Plot idea is really good, narrative and characters are mediocre.

All this is my personal opinion. FF XII is one of my 3 favorites games in the series, but FFX is a solid entry anyway.
to put things in perspective, my favorites final fantasy games are: 6 - tactics - 12 - 9 and 5
