I wasn't a fan of the newer combat system put into XII myself. I personally liked the Conditional Turn-Based Battle and Active Time Battle systems better ( VI, VII, VIII, IX, X ).

That's not a Square title... Good game but still

That was a long time ago. I just mean with basically the last generation of consoles.

I agreed that the game could play itself, but it was a fun one. I really enjoyed it.

My benchmark for an RPG is Chrono Trigger. Characters, combat and story all top notch. The original star ocean is a close second though. I don't think a single game has come close to what those two have ever and I would love for some kind of remake to them. Super HD sprites with true 1080p CG maybe.....However I would not want story to change at all.

Big mistake bros!

They could have raised more cash by re-releasing FVII than by selling Squaresoft!!

I have been playing ff14 and the game is fantastic, it has been the first mmo since wow that made me feel like the game was good enough to deserve a sub fee.

This series died for me as it progressed. Hated 7, came back for 9, almost liked 10 were it not for its whiny protagonist (that crying scene near the end still gives me nightmares). Anything after that, stayed away.

6 is the best.

What made it bad? It was the first FF that let you move around during battle. I aboslutly loved it compared to the snore worthy turn based combat of all the previous ones. 13 had NO combat whatsoever which doomed it.

^^ This, from what I understand, they just selling some stock for a quick buck.
I'm surprised to read this information provided how well their PS4 sales are doing.
