You know, for awhile there I actually forgot the game let you summon the espers into battle. So did you ever use them?

I chose maybe a few of them because I wanted to see what they were like when I first played the game. I haven't seen them in years because I never feel a need to use them.

They were always less effective and more costly than pretty much everything so I never bothered. I did summon a few to see their sprites up close, but they were all pictured in the manual anyway, so even that didn't have much of a point.

None of the one that caused damage but I ocaisionally use the one that casts spells on my team like Carbuncle and Phantom. I used ragnarock a few times when I was looking for Marvel Shoes

Few and far between.

Though I know that espers are summon-able I chose "YOU CAN SUMMON THE ESPERS IN BATTLE?!?", as I don't think it ever actually occurs to me to use them other than to see what they look like.

I use them a lot more now than I did when I was younger.

I used a few of them pretty frequently on my second playthrough. I relied on them pretty heavily depending on who/what/how many enemies I was facing.

I... think we used one once to try and invisible our party, then that failed. That was about it.

I used them, especially the first time I got them, like I do for all FFs.

I didn't have that much use for them, but a lot of the effects could be quite handy, especially early on.

I the only I used consistently was the one that casts Vanish on the whole party. Summons in the older games seem less useful until XII comes along and makes them out right useless.

Indeed I do.

I use Phantom and Golem a fair bit, and Palidor for the Magimaster fight. Not much outside of that, though.
