Final Fantasy series is DYING. - Page 5

post #41 of 120

No mention of Versus XIII? It's definitely a departure from much of the traditional Final Fantasy style, but it looks so good. I liked XIII, but this is what I've been waiting for ever since Fabula Nova Crystallis was announced.


I really get a Final Fantasy VIII vibe from the trailer, in the sense that I think it'll be another "black sheep" of the series. Not necessarily a bad thing though, since as I said earlier VIII is my second favorite game out there. I do hope that, like VIII, it dives into more of a fantasy setting as the game progresses.

Final Fantasy without crazy, over-the-top villains and world-devouring schemes would seem odd.

First of all, Final Fantasy stopped being good after Final Fantasy 4 with the exceptions of 6 (the best one) and 9.

Second of all... I lost my train of thought.

You can't really skip across 5 games and say it stopped being good. I thought it was good all through 9 though, and even 10 wasn't that bad. That's sort of where it took a real turn though.

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.
The Legend of Dragoon <3 ... those were the days..... *nostalgia*

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.
Honestly, FF has been good and there have been things that are good and bad about them all. FFIX was the last true classic based FF game.

FFX on the other hand was a great reinvented game with the Sphere Grid, graphics, voices, and story. The storyline for it was just amazing. The only really bad thing about the game was that it was completely linear until towards the end of the game which is a completely different thing from all the other Final Fantasy games.

FFXII was definitely the weirdest one for my tastes. Square tried to make a single player MMO like game and it just really didn't do it for me. I didn't really care the job board at all and the Gambit system was way to time consuming. The quests in the game were also very very confusing. Like when you have to go to the swamp area during the rainy season and go back and forth until it rains in a certain area to get to another area...I mean, had I not read a guide, I'd never have known to do that as it's not stated.

I think the problem Square is running into now is that people don't like the old classic FF games and their style of play and like this new crap. Personally, I loved the old unique systems.

I mean, in FF 1, 2, and 3, you bought your magic spells in shops in towns. Final Fantasy 3 created the changing job system (technically 1 did but you can only change to the upgrade of that one job you choose at the very beginning of the game). FF 4 had the wildest story that went literally to the moon and the underground of the earth. FF5 went back to the original 4 heroes of light and a better version of the job class system complete with the ability to pick your commands during battle which was unique. FF VI went nuts. This game had the most number of playable characters in an FF game and a HUGE world map to explore.

Something new in every game

No, 9 was pretty good too. But overall they went downhill from there in my opinion. Lots of people loved 10 so they attracted a new crowd. Said crowd was lost in 12 which I actually kind of enjoyed.

Im just repeating from those that I know, which was a group of about 20 that enjoyed FF from the first up til X. They felt a loss in the series after 6 and played up til ten, after that they have long forgotten the series exists.

Played 12 myself, cheated the crap out of that game and its still took me like 50 hours to beat it lol, kudos for that for sure.

For all you Legend of Dragoon players out there, King Albert was the shiznit Oh yeah Dart was kinda cool I guess >.>

The last good Final Fantasy game was 7. And it was Meh compared to those before it.
VIII was bad, IX was worse, X was horrifically bad, and it has only gotten worse since then.

Currently playing Final Fantasy 13 on the PS3... To be honest with you, the game is really linear, and the battles are not that fun... The game isn't very hard, and I find myself just running through it for the most part with very little difficulty. I am almost at the end of the third chapter, and I am currently unsure as to whether or not I am going to finish the game or not... It has been a really disappointing game, and I agree with you that the Final Fantasy series is dying, they just don't make games like they used to.
