for like the first time in this contest i have played a healthy amount of both games.

I like X but i have to go with VI. its my 3rd favourite however my top 6 FF games are pretty close ( or atleast 6-3) so i really do not care too much who wins ( though we all know it is X)

lets just hope no IP scandal happens again.

But X? Oh my god. X is gaming nirvana.

My vote here goes to FFX. I appreciate that FFVI is a good game. However, I didn't complete it. I got up to the world of ruin, and once I'd lost my party members I didn't really have any drive to go and find them . I have no idea how the game ends.

On the other hand I couldn't put FFX down. It was the first FF game on PS2, and I was amazed by the graphics. Plus it was the first game to feature voice acting, which was a huge step for the series. Despite some dodgy VA it managed to pull it off quite well, I thought. The battle system was good and being able to switch characters mid battle was great. Besides that there's Blitzball which is one of the best FF mini games ever :)

We're getting to the point in the ranking where it's getting really hard to choose :/

Gotta go FFX tho. It was such a landmark game in the series, when I think of the PS2, I think of FFX. They're basically synonymous.

Game play wise i prefer X. but, I HATE HATE HATE the characters in X and there were a few in VI I could dig. I also HATED X's story. Everything that had to do with writing in X just made me want to throw my PS2 out the window and was probably a HUGE factor in me shifting back to PC play. Everything Square made around that time is horrible imo so I went back to Diablo 2 and Counter Strike. From FFVII to X was the golden age of consoles in my life.

02-08-2015, 08:31 PM
I feel the same about FFVI as I do FFIX. They're my go-to recommendations for people trying FF out for the first time because they're both great games that perfectly capture all the things that come to mind when I think of what a Final Fantasy game is, but I don't find myself playing them over and over again like my own favorites. Besides FFXIV which is an MMO, I've put more hours into FFX than any other single player Final Fantasy :spin:

One of those rare occasions I find myself voting for FFVI. xD I don't adore the game, I think it's highly overrated. But it doesn't have Tidus, Yuna and Seymour in the starring roles and for me, those three managed to destroy almost all the fun I got out of FFX. Can't stand any of them. I think the rest of FFX is alright - good battle system, good minigames (well, some good minigames... chocobo balloon crap was awful and horrid) and I really like Lulu, Rikku and Kimahri (Wakka wasn't bad either).

FFVI also had some great characters and while I really don't like Terra "Moany Depressed Emo" Branford, I found she wasn't as dominant as Tidus/Yuna/Seymour and therefore I could happily keep her out of my game for the most part. FFVI was the kind of game I could fall asleep to because it's often boring. FFX is more like an annoying and very noisy neighbour that won't let you sleep because it has a spokestrio with the three most irritating voices ever.

I hope I've ruffled the appropriate number of feathers on both sides with this post. ;)

I was really torn with this one. I think FFVI is a very good game. It's always been overrated due to the nostalgia factor (I have much the same thing with FFVII) that is attached to it. There are some fantastic moments in it which I would expect from a Final Fantasy game. I've always said that I wished I played it when it was released back in the nineties.

I don't think I've seen any game get as much of the mickey taken out of it than FFX. I played about a third of it when it was released and didn't finish it. Since I got the HD remake for Christmas I've really enjoyed playing it. It's been great fun. I know it was still early days for voice acting in games but it's nowhere near as bad as I remember it being. Tidus is a bit of a gimp but I actually find him quite likeable! Auron is cool as fuck and Wakka has completely redeemed himself as I thought I hated him.

Based on which game I've enjoyed the most I'm going with FFX.

FF VI has the zillion times better hero and main character ( if you count Terra )


But FFX's battle system and storyline is so much more enjoyable.

FF8 gives FF6 a run for it's money before losing, FF10-2 gives FF9 a solid run for it's money before losing.

Then FF6 goes on to never once have the lead or put up a real threat to FF10. :eyebrow:

None of these are going the way I expected. I thought it was going to be interesting to see something like FF9 vs. FF6. :shrug:

When I first devised this event a lot of people thought the finalists would be VI vs. VII. Looks like I was right to assume that it wouldn't go that way on EoFF! (although my money is still on VII as a finalist) (for now anyway)

This side of the bracket was really stacked with 6, 8, 9 and 10 so it's naturally where all the action happened. It's a shame 10-2 didn't win - just imagine 10 vs 10-2! 9 vs 10 is going to be a great fight all the same though.

Wish we could've seen 7 take on 6, 8 or 9, that would've gotten ugly.

For X vs. IX I predict IX, mostly because I think votes from the rather vocal anti-X squad will tip IX over the edge.

IX vs. VII will be super fun to watch. I am predicting a VII win but really anything could happen.

Not surprised at all, I think the X haters seem more populous than they are by virtue of how loudly they voice their disdain. FFVI certainly has its fans but the overall series fanbase is much larger than it was back when it released and VI just doesn't stand out enough over the other retro titles for *most* of those who play it years after its original launch. Meanwhile, FFX is one of the most revered video games of all time, period. How it fares against IX or another high-profile entry will say a lot about our little pocket of the fandom.
