After I finished VII for the first time I thought the game was a bit over rated but it still was very, very good overall. If you liked VII then you'd LOVE IX and VI
Thank you xD
What about FF8?
FFVIII is a rather love-it-or-hate-it kind of game, ESPECIALLY the story. It's the FF game with the most theories, which some would say means it's the most interesting and promissing plot, other would say the theories are just there to try to make the plot any decent. There's one particular plot twist on this game that seems to infuriate a lot of people.
Then there's the Draw thing. If you approach it right, and consider the existence of the Refine abilites, it's not a big deal. Also, the game mechanics are broken. What I mean by that, is that you can nearly max out your stats with nearly to no effort. To put things in perspective, this is the only game where I've beaten the super bosses, because they weren't really that hard. I'm not really complaining, I love destroying a game sometimes, but being broken is not exactly a quality.
