It wasn't until I watched dr unnes play through using the PSP version of this game that I realized how adorable the sprites were.

Seriously look how fabulous fighters hair is

So now I've decided that the PSP version has the best sprites for ff1. Yah I said it.

Glad you like them, I despise that style. They look way too out of place against 2D backgrounds.

I'm going to guess you meant sprites, no spites, in the title so I fixed it for you :)
I'm just a fanboy of NES, so...

Oops I did. I posted from my phone so I wouldn't be surprised if it autocorrected

I believe everyone should follow in Dr.Unne's footsteps and name their fighter lwlftw. Clearly, the name to rise above all names.

Good point. I didn't think about how they look on the actual 2D background. On their own though they're pretty well made.

I like how the White Mage looks too: http://i43.:bou::bou::bou::bou::bou::bou::bou::bou::bou::bou::bou::bou:/1zx5r36.png

I'm not a huge fan of the PSP version's sprites, actually. I prefer the ones from the WS, PS1, and GBA versions. Still, they're pretty adorable.

I like them better than the original, but they could have been done differently too. They are an improvement with room for some more improvement. ;)

But that flowing hair of fighters is amazing guys. Get on my level here. We like pretty hair an ridiculous outfits.

I'm not a fan, if I'm honest. I didn't mind the Dawn of Souls designs. I can't quite put my finger on why. They look a little amateur-ish. Not in the sense that they're done badly, but they just look like they should be in someone's RPG Maker game.

First impression was that I hated them. But they grew on me. They did a stellar job on the PSP ports. At least they kept the graphics mostly true to the original. Same poses etc. They changed Black Wizard significantly but the change was an improvement.

Consider for a moment what might've been. FFV IOS:

Joy. And to think that's the treatment FFVI is now about to get.

To be honest, when I first saw the videos of the IOS version of Final Fantasy V I figured it must have been fan-made somehow. I'm probably just not appreciating the work that went into it, though.

That's terrible. It doesn't even remotely look like the same game.

For comparison, this is FF5 on SNES:

And FF1 on PSP:

49141

I think FF1 PSP > FF5 SNES > FF5 iOS personally.

I really like the FF1 graphics on PSP. Man I am such a graphics whore.

oh wow those phone graphics o.o not really nice to look at xD

(still not sure WHY someone would want to play a game like FF on a phone...)

Why not? More people have smartphones than PSPs or DSes. More people bring them with them whereever they go too.

just do not get it xD i never understand cell phones. why are they even called phones anymore? it is like you can do everything on them and 60% of the world does at the worst times making it super annoying.

come back down to earth humans people are standing around you <3

but really? phone controls? :x for angry birds maybe but FF? xD maybe it does work. just cannot beat a actually game controller for me.

THey're called cell because they still use a cellular network, and they're called phone because it's easier and faster to say than "communication device".

Ghosteses

yes of course i knew that xD the top part of my post was actually more of a joke xD

do the rest of the cell phone versions of FF look like that? because i actually think i prefer the snes screenshots :x

Mirage

Well, the sprite style isn't exactly the smartphones' fault. Personally, I mostly play on my GBA emulator on my smartphone.

Do I wish I had physical keys to control the games? Yeah, but sometimes you have to compromise.

Crap, I feel like running through this agian on the PSP again because of this thread.

Anyway, I also think the ios versions of FFV and VI (saw a screenshot on Kotaku) look terrible.

As for the PSP version of FFI? Great all around! I also really loved the same type of polished treatment FFIV got on the PSP.

No thought. You are right. I'm really dreading FFVI remake now. FF1 PSP is very nice compared to other remakes they have worked on. We need to send someone from eoff to work in the FF department at Square. I nominate Dr Unne. Pssst please help them on VI before they finish this phone remake!

I've always liked the PSP sprites for the older Final Fantasy remakes. They look really nice, detailed, and polished up yet still exude that retro classic RPG aura.
