Final Fantasy series is DYING.

post #1 of 120
Thread Starter 
Just need to blow this off, since it's always itching at me. I grew up playing Final Fantasy, trying to help Cloud and Squall find their ways through the magical worlds of FF. Final Fanatasy 7-9 are my personal favorites and I've beaten all of them thoroughly.

Recently, though, FF has become a disaster. I mean, FF 10? That made no sense whatsoever. It was an abomination. Sure, the graphics are good, but what good is epic graphics when the gameplay is that terrible?

What I could really use right now, is a remade version of FF 7 or 9, in today's modern graphics. That would make me grin like a fool.

Hate to break it to ya but most of those that played from the 1st considered FF dead after ff7 was released.

Anyways, it seems most rpg's went downhill after graphics came into play, now its more about graphics than actual story/plot.

EDIT: My last notable RPG for me was The Legend of Dragoon, it was very basic, but it had a unique combat style that made you pay attention.

While FF13 wasnt all too spectacular, i wouldn't say its dying. 14 was rubbish but i feel an MMO FF game and a traditional RPG game are quite different from each other. I just hope 13-2 is good. I would love a remake of X on the PS3 using the new engine.

So true. I loved the FF's though. I had 10 for PS2 and got into it, but after it unfolded a lil ways I too was disappointed. They need to go back to their roots and get it going again. I didn't even TRY FFXIII after reviews and such.

What brought me on to the older FF's was the unique combat style, the length, the story, the plot, all of that. Nowadays it seems all about eyecandy and trying to get everyone to buy it so the game makers can fill their pockets.

Bingo, because they try to appeal to the causal market or everyone, not to a specific group such as RPG fans.

Even though they arent rpg's, they make good examples of what I previously stated.

Crysis/Metro 2033

Great eye candy you can get your hands on, and they both suck.

Im hoping Deus Ex delivers, im actually placing all my hopes on that game, graphics arent THE GREATEST, but based on the videos, im already hooked into the plot.

and THAT is, my friends, what an RPG is supposed to do. Immerse you into the story, make you care about what the hell is going on.

Also, I have no idea what FF13 was like, but already knowing who your allies were killed it for me. Half the fun is finding the next new comrade IMHO

In my personal opinion, FF died right after 10.

I REALLY enjoyed 10, one of their most beautiful games besides of course FF7. That game was a masterpiece.

Ill give you that one, I did enjoy finding him.

My friends hated me because I played ff7 all the way to the end, and I mean the boss fight for sephiroth, went to get something to eat. Came back, turned it off and started watching tv lol.

Never touched it since, I actually sold it too, though that might have been a bad idea, since it has a lot of value now lol

will, night OCN
