the thing i like most about the classic FF games (3,4,6,7)is the music, amongst my all time favs, the gameplay is also balanced and challenging

Oh this thread could become my home...

What were some of your favorite final fantasy moments? (Basil this is for you too)

I personally really loved FFIV DS, and the graphics (oddly enough). Interesting how we saw that from very different tastes. Without pushing that on you, I just wanted to say that what I liked about the FFIV DS graphics was that the colors were true to the SNES original, and I strangely liked the blurriness in that I was able to fill the gaps myself. Sometimes I like that. But aside from graphics, in the remake, the dialogue was really improved over the original (like really improved), and the augments added a lot of fun to the game. I wonder if those two improvements were in the complete collection remake for the PSP (I would think so).



My love for final fantasy is just too big to make me ignore the "Newer" ones, but honestly , I enjoyed every final fantasy I played, and I played/watched/read ALL of them, including spin offs, Anime, books ...ect ect, ALL.OF.THEM, and I am kinda proud to do so  

I've once wrote a huge thread like yours about my experience on every single final fantasy game and asked people to share their experience, of course without the lists and "Final Fantasy (Something) IS THE BEST GAME EVER)  , honestly, I don't have one favourite, because they're way too different from each other, every game has its own charms, but if there is one thing I dislike about final fantasy , its the fanboys, I really, REALLY dislike the fanboys, they make me want to stop liking the series instead of liking it.



It saddens me to see FFVIII - X lumped in with my beloved classics. Personally, I'm playing through FFIV: The After Years right now and I'm enjoying it greatly. If only FFV and FFVI could receive the same treatment.

@menx -> I wouldn't mind being spammed with that at all.

Doesn't it make you proud to have played these games for some curious reason? I get the same feeling for all those I've played through.

And bouzane, I'm also playing the After Years. Even though it doesn't hold up to the original FFIV, it is still an experience I can enjoy.



Great thread idea HappyD!

I've been playing Final Fantasy since the very first one. I played all the America released non-online games in the series.

My favorite is Final Fantasy VII, I love the story, the characters, the Materia system and the great deal of stuff there is to do besides the main quest (Battle Arena, killing the Weapons, Chocobo breeding, getting Yuffie and Vincent, getting Limit Breaks and Ultimate Weapons, Snowboarding in the Gold Saucer, finding every Summon).

Final Fantasy VI(III) - Awesome game, with a great cast of characters, the best vilain ever in a video game and some truly memorable moments. The Esper system is great but does tend to make all your characters fight alike by the end of the game (although some characters are clearly better than others).
Final Fantasy IV(II) - Also a very good game, a bit short but I really like that every character has his own abilities and the way people hop in and out of your party throughout the story. I particularly like Kain's side of the story with him being in love with Cecil's girlfriend Rosa or Rydia's triumphant return as a grown up to save your ass underground.

Final Fantasy X - The first Final Fantasy with voice acting and I do think it was very well done. I really cared about the characters in this game, Auron was so cool and badass, Tidus was cheerful and positive (unless he talked about his father), Yuna was such a sweetheart and when it was revealed that she'd die using the Final Summon, I found myself thinking "No way I'm letting that happen" just like Tidus. The combat system is really enjoyable and you finally can include every party member in each fight! The sphere grid was a nice change to the traditional leveling system and kept everyone in their respective role for most of the game.

Final Fantasy X-2 - Fun battle/job system. Silly plot.

FF I - Had a bit too much grinding and interface problems (I played it on the NES, you had to buy your potions 1 at a time!) but it's still very enjoyable

FF VIII - Had a broken battle system, less relatable characters and a last boss that comes out of nowhere but there's a kick ass mini-game (Triple Triad) and Liberi Fatali

FF IX - I skipped this one when it was released and bought it later on PSN. I haven't finished it yet, the combat and upgrade system is good but I'm trying real hard to get over the fact the main character has a tail.



Signature goes here!

I'll just leave this here.

Few moments are as epic as that one. :'(

Poor FFVIII, I really like that one, but so little love from others.

 



I really do have to question: Is FFX able to be classified with 'Classic' Final Fantasy? I mean if so then X-2 is certainly also 'classic'.

I think FFX has far more in common with later entries like XIII than with the PS1/Snes/NES entries. I just can't really think of a single metric that would dictate FF-X being some sort of cut off point. The only slight possible one being that it was the last worldwide FF game to be published by Square. However FFX-2 was developed before Square-enix and published in Japan before square-enix.

So what exactly makes FFX the cut off point? Seems to me that 9 is the more logical choice. As after that you lost the traditional world map, voice acting came in etc etc.

So yea gotta say for me it's 1-9 is classic. 10 and later is new style FF.



Turkish says and I'm allowed to quote that: Uncharted 3 and God Of War 3 look better than Unreal Engine 4 games will or the tech demo does. Also the Naughty Dog PS3 ENGINE PLAYS better than the UE4 ENGINE.

That scene in the DS version is epic!
