I discovered the Final Fantasy series when I was around 14 years old, with the SNES games. My favorite title is probably Final Fantasy IV, but I had a lot of fun with V and VI too.
Long story short, I played almost every mainline game, and I can say that this is a franchise where no title looks bad to me (I had trouble with FF2 gameplay, but the story was a huge improvement over FF1). In fact, I'm playing Final Fantasy XIII (One of the few I haven't played before) and I'm loving it!
The series went from top-down 8-bit JRPG to cinematic experiences in about 35 years of history.
Since I'm in the mood to talk about the series (Playing FF13 and in the hype train for FF16), I decided to create this topic so we can discuss our experiences with games from the franchise.
Talk about your favorite titles, your experiences, memorable moments, etc.
Please, that goes without talking, but avoid bashing other people's opinions.
