Oh God, did you really just say Nani?

In fact, why even respond to my post? You didn't say anything.

Yes, I said nani. Kawaii desu ka?

And I said lots of things. In my post "useless" Cait Sith showed himself to be as useful as any of the 73 optional characters with no storyline that you pick up on your travels in FF6. Really, praising FF6 for not having any useless characters would be like me praising FF7 for its translation. No matter how much I love the game, I would never go as far as to say something like that, since the translation is obviously awful. Likewise, FF6 has more useless characters than any other game in the main series; praise any aspect of the game you like, but don't praise the lack of useless characters. My feelings should have been clear from the fact that I expressed confusion and posted a reaction image of an unimpressed Miu after quoting the bit about "no useless characters".

However, I can see why you were so upest by my response, since it was clear from the smilies that I was being incwedibly sewious.

Alright, now you're pissing me off even more. Stop being so "cute." It's irritating. Anywho, what you showed me doesn't make Cait Sith useful. The probability of getting that is so incredibly small that it's like claiming that Setzer doesn't suck (even then, he's still useful). Each of the characters in FF6 are unique and useful in their own ways, even if some aren't as good as others. Cait Sith is pathetically weak and actually almost ruins the main quest for the characters (secret doll working for Shinra anyone?). Even characters like Gogo and Umaro have their own little uses. This kind of strength is replicated in Final Fantasy 9, too. Each of the characters kicks some serious ass, and none of them are bad at all.

Need I remind you of Game Over?



Kimi wa ne tashika ni ano toki watashi no soba ni ita

Itsudatte itsudatte itsudatte

Sugu yoko de waratteita

Nakushitemo torimodosu kimi wo

I will never leave you

Final fantasy 4-7 except for 5 were the best. Everything after that just seemed tired.



I only have played 6 so I can't comment on the others FF but 6 is one of my favorite games, the music is sublime, I loved Kefka and the characters have goods backstories and skills



                       Thanks Blacksaber for the sig                  Tag:"Nintendo es toda la diversión de esta generación"

^^ why would you not play any other FF when you liked 6 that much?

OT: because people tend to support the underdog...?

Hmmm. Maybe I SHOULD try out this game if everyone is being extremely laudatory of it.

EDIT: Well since it's not on DS, VC, OR Playstation, I can't play it. Damn.

FFVI was ported to the original Playstation with extra cutscenes on October 5 1999 via the 'Final Fantasy Anthologies'.  This version also featured a remastered port of Final Fantasy V, the first time both America and Europe had gotten an official release of the game outside of Japan.

The game was also ported once more to Game Boy Advance in 2006.

You can easily find the game in either form on, EBay, Amazon or your favorite used game store.



Six upcoming games you should look into:

K. First of all, I'll be as cute as I want to be. We're not in court; we're arguing about a 15-year-old game on the internet, so we don't have to be deadly serious all the time.

Anyway, characters in FF7 are as unique or useful as you want them to be; they're customisable, so you can have whoever you want in your party at whatever time. The onus is on the player to define what each character's role is and what they can do. There are some natural differences between the characters, but they're pretty small. Wanna know why Cait Sith is so crappy? Because everyone hates him, therefore no-one puts him in their party when they have the choice and he neither gets levelled up nor equipped with any decent materia/weapons/armour/accessories. Of course he's going to be crap.

And as for the use he has in the storyline, that's completely different from his use in battle and you know it. And as it happens, he is an important part of the party at several points. Storywise, all of the FF7 characters have some part to play, even if it's a small one. Even the optional characters add something to the game.

No, you won't be. It's not about being serious; rather, it's about not overloading with smiles and Japanese words in English (which you didn't do with this post and I'm glad). But frankly, I no longer care. 

So much of Final Fantasy 7 is limit breaks, though. And while Cait Sith's limit break is potentially really powerful, the vast majority (and I mean the vast majority) of the time, it's pretty bad when compared to those of Cloud and Barret. Look, I'm not a huge Cait Sith hater. I had him in my party for a good while (up until I fought Jenova Death, or something). I tried to like him, but he's just not that great. His physical stats are worse than just about everyone (his megaphone attacks are pitiful), his limit breaks are lame, and his magic stats are terrible (his summons do significantly less damage than with other characters). Besides that one-in-a-million limit break you demonstrated, there's absolutely no use for him. Even Yuffie is better. Besides, I was talking about battle use from the beginning. I know that the likes of Gogo have no storyline significance, but I was arguing usefulness in battle.
