It didn't have all the holes in it that other Final Fantasy games had.

Its easy to find the PlayStation Version. I'd rather get teh PS1 version over the steam version, because then I can play it on my PSP. Soon enough.

Who cares, FF stopped being a PS exclusive (and a good game, btw) since almost a decade.

Hopefully Square will get back to their roots and what made the original FF games amazing.

You know...if FF15 ends up being awesome I bet all the fans will start blaming Sony for messing up the games for a while. Though I have no clue how much influence Sony had over Square Enix.

Yea, I have no idea how much they influenced them either, I just know after they went exclusive to Sony with FF VII it went down hill from there. I personally consider FF VII to be the start of the decline in the franchise. 1-6 were amazing, the rest not so much.

At first it was a controlling interest of about 19% just to keep MS from getting their games for the original Xbox. In 2003 when they merged with Enix, that amount dropped to 8% and they became less important in Square decisions but simply held onto the shares.

 

Also, heres my current collection:

It was just the natural progression of games fueled by greed that killed them. They've become less about the story, and less about gameplay and more about pumping out half broken crap with stupidly overpriced downloadable content.

I think I had over 500 hours alone put into FFX going through everything possible and leveling all the characters up. FFXII I only had maybe 200 hours in and about 120 hours in FFXIII... Most games these days? 9 hours for the typical games story these days, and however long after that until you get bored. There's been a few games that have kept me occupied for upwards of 20 hours on the story / side quests but not many...

Personally, I wouldn't mind getting true HD remakes of all late 1990's and early 2000's games. The era where the stories were amazing and gameplay was top notch.

On the current topic. I have played VII to 13 -2 . Skipped 10 FF13 was the worst for me. Story was hard to understand. Battle System was ok. It destroyed roaming. You can pretty much play the whole game with just Up button and O . Seriously. I am waiting for FF15 PC version

Legend of Dragoon was made by SOE not Square Enix. I wonder who gets the IP?

Whoa, another person that likes FFXIII :O! FFXIII-buddies. I don't think they are ever going to port it over to the PC though. The fans that unfortunately hate the FFXIII series are incredibly loud, even though they are the minority. So I think our best bet is waiting until technology gets to the point where we can emulate the PS3/Xbox360 properly.
