I wan't to get into Final Fantasy: Where should I start? - Page 2

post #11 of 66
Oh lord. Final Fantasy, my child hood and love/hate relationship. VI,VII,VIII,IX are my favorites. I have played VII multiple times and think it is a must play if you are a JRPG fan. IMO and a lot others, they started to go downhill after that, X was good.

but if you really want to understand the greatness of square gold years, then get chrono trigger (snes nds psx), and chrono cross on psx, i like those more because there are no random battles

i played ff3 and ff4 on nds, and did not like them very much

Do NOT forget FF7 for the PC. Square released a polished version of it for $10 that is much, much preferable to using an emulator.

It's on sale for 6 bucks right now.

I keep holding out on that in hopes of a Steam version.

Isn't that version still using the crappy midi's? I would say that alone is worth playing it on a PSX.

FFVII is where I started, then went and played 9, then 8 (didn't like it). Played 1 and 2 after that, then 10. Played 12 as well. Good game. VII and IX are my favorite.

The rereleased version of FFVII supports higher resolutions and actually looks pretty crisp.

Many FF fans said that FFVII (probably due to nostalgic feeling) and FFIX are the best. For me personally, FFIX is the best FF game so far. I believe many will agree with that. FFIX has a beautiful graphics, unbelievable storyline, amazing adventure (huge world with 4 continents), awesome/enhance/diverse game's mechanic (active time battle, active time events, trance, card game, many weapons/armors/items, synthesis (crafting system), many lists of configuration and thousands more). Not even Final Fantasy XIII can beat it! thumb.gif

FF7 was without a doubt the best story ever.

Its about greed, brotherhood, corporations, environmentalism, apocalypse, love, destiny, sacrifice, betrayal, badass weapons, overpowered bosses, huge worlds, infinite enemies,

just.... play ff7. for the love of god man...

7, 8, and 9 are good starting points. Pick either of them. They'll help you appreciate the series then just venture from there. If you have a DS or iOS device the remake of 3 is great too.

Anthologies is a great place to start (V and VI). From there, VII is a major cornerstone of the series and the genre in general. Amazing story, well developed battle system and the side stories are equally amazing.

VIII is horrendous beyond measure. I'd skip it.

IX is awesome - just a tad behind VII in my mind. X is very decent, but not a master piece. Skip X-2. In fact, X-2 is just a bedtime story mothers tell their children to scare them senseless.


As much as I love VII I have to say the villian in Anthologies is an order of magnitude more evil than Sephiroth in VII. Sephiroth may be more badass but Kefka takes the evil crown and runs with it.

wow, so much hate for ff8, actually that is my favorite

the best game no doubt is 9 in every sense, but plot gets weird by the end, best plot is for ff7

i would like to play 1,2,5,6 but i just can´t stand any more random battles, i just hate that

and please do not forget chrono trigger, one of the best games ever

can the new ff7 pc quicksave??????
