It's part of the schizo tone of this game that when you get to Disk 3, you look back at Disk 1, and say "what happened?"

Even if Disk 3 was all good, it's so very different from Disk 1 in...every way. Even the pretense at the mercenary/military Garden thing has completely fallen apart. That happened at the start of Disk 2 though with Squall and them no longer taking mission assignments which was a good chunk of Disk 1.

Anyway...I guess my favorite Disk might be 1? 2? It's hard to say. It's not 3 or 4.

Third disc for sure. Airship! Doing whatever you want!

Incidentally, the second disc is my least favorite xD

This is kind of tough for me, on the one hand, my favorite scene in the game is in the second disc but so is a lot of the bad writing... I guess I will go with the first disc as well the game starts out really strong and the pacing is pretty good.

I appreciate this game for its unapologetic insanity. Every time I see a complaint or a criticism aimed at it demanding logic, I just imagine the game laughing like The Joker. That said, I'm gonna have to go with Disc One. It was just solid all around, although I do like the mobile Garden in Disc Two.

You don't visit Esthar until Disc Three.

FH is disc 2, I believe. Am I wrong? I think it's disc 2.

I should have elaborated - disc 3 has the space scene, which is my favorite, so that's why I love it.

My mom makes fun of the space scene like there's no tomorrow.

Hmm... it seems my favorite is the last half of disc 2 and the first half of disc 1. Can... can that be a disc :greenie:

Overall I would say disc 2, I just hated the prison.

/is playing the game currently. Can't remember what happens when

Squall didn't go "I WUV U" until Disk 3.
The party wasn't just randomly shot into space until Disk 3.

All the bad writing is on Disk 3.

Well...most of it.

It's Disc Two. Esthar just wasn't actually shown until Disc Three.

The scene on the Ragnarok is very sweet and touching and all that rot, I'll admit.

Disc 2 is where we get the poorly executed amnesia twist, the first hint of Ultimecia, the entire NORG scenario that was irrelevant and watching the school become a ship cause someone thought it would be "cool". The rot starts in Disc 2, it just get's worse from there. 54019

It also had the Garden wars. Which were just epic enough to forget all of that nonsense.

I consider NORG a high point of Disk 2.

Just Saiyan.

Let's break this shit down.

Disk 1
Pros:
Abundance of Seifer
Dollet landing
Sorceress Assassination build-up

Cons:
Quistis abandoning her post and forcing us into a Sewer Level

Disk 2
Pros:
Garden Civil War/NORG
Balamb vs. Galbadia
FH Concert (? maybe)
Final confrontation with Seifer and Edea

Cons:
D-District Prison
Orphanage Reveal
NORG Subplot going nowhere even when you visit Shumi Village
The Garden controlling like ass
Lack of Seifer
Rinoa's father being completely ignored

Disk 3
Pros:
Ragnarok Scene
The Ragnarok itself
....

Cons:
Seifer's character receiving no closure or proper resolution
MONSTERS FALL FROM DA MOON DIDN'T YOU LEARN THIS IN HISTORY CLASS APPARENTLY NOT
Laguna's defeat of Adel being tucked away in an optional flashback. Actually, I think Disk 3 had all the worst Laguna flashbacks.
Again, Rinoa's complicated relationship with her father being forgotten about completely
