Gonna have to give this one to the original. I like X-2, but I like the original a whole lot more.

out of the 9 i have completed. 1 is my least favourite. however i played a bit of X-2 and it was pretty good. really tough choice for me but.....uh... i... choose FF1. though FFx-2 is pretty good too. ( heh they both use job systems-ish)

hey maybe this time there will be alot less "no voters" :)

FFX-2! What a great game! Sure it's campy and dumb, but it's a really good time and the battle system is fantastic.

hey maybe this time there will be alot less "no voters" :) The issue with the bottom left bracket is everything is pretty niche. Next two round will get a lot of votes though~

Final Fantasy may have been where it all started but I barely played it. X-2 on the other hand I completed and I actually enjoyed playing through it. That's not to say that I didn't cringe at certain parts of the game xD But it's fun to play and the battles are fast and fluid. The story might have ruined the ending for X but with it enabled a half decent story to come out of it, and I enjoyed finding out about Shuyin and Lenne. Talking of them, the 1000 Words cutscene is probably one of my favourite cutscenes in a Final Fantasy game.

Do you intend to make a new thread for every poll by design? There are ways to change the poll in a thread to give the discussions more flow and not flood this forum with a bunch of four post poll threads, but it requires moderation powers in this forum. It's a matter of preference.

Anyway, I knew X-2 would win because X is popular and people have finally realized it has the best battle system of any FF, but the story, characters, and setting were really grating and I'm old school at heart, so I threw the original some love.

Well I've not played I so...

Well that, and X-2 has aged very well within the fandom. It has a fantastic battle system.

Wolf Kanno

FFI, I never really agreed with most fans that X-2 had the best battle system since it still had a few annoying quirks that undermines it for my taste. I never could stomach X-2 to play it more than once, whereas I find something new to like about FFI each time I play through it.

My all-time favorite game since age 4 versus the game I constantly defend against baseless criticism

I mean obviously I'm going with 1, but voting against X-2 makes me queasy :cry:

This was really tough. Ultimately had to go with FFI, though. Cause I love me some old-school RPGs.

Oh man, FFX-2 is being caught up on quickly...

Galuf
01-22-2015, 08:59 PM
oh now theres 3 groups of light warriors... well i think were safe against chaos's legion. though chaos's most elite unit is the Gullwings Special Forces and is said to be the toughest opponent for the light warriors. today the Light warriors are outnumbered by 2 but tommorow we will Fight! ( there is no tomorow)

idk what that was about oh well

This is quite an interesting poll from an historical perspective:

On the one hand we have a game which was made as a last resort of sorts, the Final Fantasy, of a struggling company.

On the other hand we have a game which was made as a cash grab of sorts due to how this same company found itself in financial trouble after the failure of the movie The Spirits Within.

omg I'm gonna go home and start a new game of X-2 right now but no I have to wait and beat X again first for continuityyyyy

FF1 and well...it is a tie now! I'm actually surprised that X-2 has gotten so many votes. I did like some things about it but quite frankly, I sure hope that after X-2 and the XIII saga SE keeps Toriyama as far away from the FF director's chair as possible.

I'm actually surprised FFI is doing well. It's not a secret most of the forum is in love with X-2's battle system, so I figured the gameplay would let it win pretty easy.

I think the gameplay/battle system is very much all X-2 has going for it, really. But the whole Charlie's Angels/Sailor Moon and blatant jpop culture infusion is rather cringe worthy as is the characterisation and the overall tone of the game specially as it relates to Yuna. And then there is Brother...oh brother.

Brothers seems to be always trying to play that role claiming to be the "leader" and the one to give the assignments and what not. Not that there is any point by point similarity of course.

Be not proud...the spirit of Final Fantasy lives within the soul of all mankind. The eternal flame of life that cannot be extinguished. The origin of which cannot be explained. The answer lies in the everlasting spirit. Soon all mankind will witness the rebirth of Final Fantasy - We will not rest in peace!
