IX

But I would rather see IX lose to X than to VII so

Also unlike the other semi final, this could go either way. Commence wild speculation about why Final Fantasy (I)X is better. THIS IS NOT A DRILL PEOPLE. I WANNA SEE TWO DAYS OF SCREAMING AT ONE ANOTHER!

This might be the first poll that was actually hard for me but I have to say X edges it out. IX is one of the best games of all time but FFX brought more new and original ideas to the table.

I wanted to vote with Dat Matt in honour of populating the thread with Yuru Yuri gifs, but unfortunately he voted the wrong way.

For you see, Final Fantasy IX has Zidane. Final Fantasy X has Tidus. Therefore it is impossible for X to be better.

As you say.

Minor. ^^

In fact I do technically agree, Final Fantasy X is mechanically stronger pretty much everywhere, and has a better overall narrative. It's just... no FFIX. The character development in IX is just completely unparalleled. It was great in X, don't get me wrong, but even so on another level in IX.

And IX had the better soundtrack.

We could have been friends, Fox. To be fair though, the only reason my vote went to X was cause we're playing it right now for the lets play. I would have voted IX had we not done this lets play.

Yep, gross. At least Lulu's of age, shit.

VOTED IX, because it's better. That's not a knock against FFX, which is a fine game with one of the best implementations of turn-based combat, some of the best music, and the best mini-game in the series (blitzball). FFIX is just special.

It was the last game to capture the light-heartedness I used to love so much about Final Fantasy. FFX tried and failed. FFXII didn't even try. And I hope everyone knows by now how I feel about FFXIII. FFIX, to me, is the full package. The story isn't the greatest, but it's good. GREAT music. Fantastic characters. Great character interaction (Vivi+Quina, Vivi+Steiner, Steiner+Beatrix). A fucking world map. Great chocobo implementation. Airship love. Interesting locations. Lots of mini-games and secret stuff to discover. A world I feel invested in. Quality moogleness.

I.E. It might not be the greatest game at any one thing, but it's near the top on almost everything, which means it averages out to one of the best (if not the best).

But seriously, I just never understood the appeal of IX. Played through it once and that was more then enough. X isn't exactly flawless but it has some enjoyable characters and a cool world atleast.

Also, ages in FF are weird. They're about 7 years younger in their biographies than they actually look.

That's just Japan haha, So many sexualised female characters in anime are actually like 14-15 if you look it up :/

Yes, go look up sexual 14-15 year olds on the internet. That is a perfect plan that could not possibly go wrong.

Loony BoB
02-12-2015, 01:12 PM
More to the point, there is no law against finding a 15 year old attractive, provided you aren't doing anything illegal based off that attraction. There are 20 year olds who look like 15 year olds and vice versa in this world. Whether or not Rikku is someone you find attractive is up to you, of course (I don't find her unattractive or attractive, personally, she just seems like a generally cute person), but I'm not gonna judge.

FFIX wins this battle for me but I thought it would be closer than the polls are saying right now. Still, there is time.

Bubba
02-12-2015, 01:45 PM
I think I might refrain voting on this one. I have played FFX and really enjoyed it but I haven't even attempted FFIX.

I feel this is too big a poll to vote against a game I haven't even played.

Congrats to all the winner! :monster:

Oh I guess you need to know what I'm voting for.

FF...

*drumroll*

IX!

FFX was a good first entry on new hardware that introduced some new ideas. The battle system was good and I liked being able to switch between party members. Blitzball was a great addition. The story is ok, but overall I preferred the story and characters of IX.

EDIT: Seems like I took it to a 5 point lead in favour of FFIX. Could I be forced to choose between my two favourite FF games ever in the final?! D:

Believe it, kid. FFIX roxors your boxers.

It's either a sign of how many people hate Tidus, or how many love Vivi. Or nostalgia. Or something. It's really close though. There's no telling how this one will turn out yet. Love it.

Loony BoB
02-12-2015, 06:37 PM
I like Vivi, but I probably like Zidane and Quina more. But I probably like Lulu more than any of the other characters in these games. Shame she's not the lead, I think a story surrounding her would be pretty cool (http://dippywerewolf.deviantart.com/gallery/38222634/Guardian).

Oh dear! I see someone from the X crowd was foolhardy enough to bring the soundtracks into this! And to think I was going to be so nice and go easy on you...

Well, since that door has opened, I think we can all agree that X has the superior primary battle theme. Boss Theme...debatable, it depends on how much you like Nakano's atmospheric style where nothing really happens. To Zanarkand of course and a few others are absolute classics, I doubt anyone will claim the FFX soundtrack is anything other than sublime.

Trouble is, for every To Zanarkand FFIX has half a dozen You're Not Alone's. For every Yuna's Determination there are two Bran Bals. For every Enemy Attack there was a Vamo Alla Flamenco! It had really catchy world map music. Do you remember FFX's world map music? Oh wait... X didn't have a world map? Shame really. FFIX has one of the all time great soundtracks. There was so much of it in fact they released a second soundtrack in order to get on all the brilliant pieces composed for the game's many FMV sequences. X completely neglected this area, with the notable exception of the Sending scene. But completely lacked anything like, well... this!

And a lot of you guys didn't believe me when I predicted that IX would win! :shobon:

I said it before and I'll say it again: X is too polarizing of a title. Even a lot of people who would rate IX as just a middling FF will vote for it just to keep X out. :gator: Oh well, it'll be funny when it goes up against VII.

Jessweeee♪
02-12-2015, 08:44 PM
FFX has one of my favorite soundtracks in the game. Uematsu, Hamauzu, and Nakano are my favorite composers in Square and all three of them had a hand in this one :kaoclove:

The only thing that could have possibly made it better is if Yoko Shimomura could have squeezed in there too.

I voted IX, but it's incredibly close for me. I wouldn't really call it nostalgia since I didn't like IX the first time I played it, and I beat X before I ever got far in IX. It all just depends on my mood which game I have more fun playing, though.

APPARENTLY NOT!

Seems that FFIX is indeed a FFX killer as it elimates both entries in that series. This means the final will be Final Fantsy VII vs Final Fantasy IX. A shocking battle that no one saw coming. Tomorrow the third place vote begins, so look out for Final Fantasy Tactics Advance vs Final Fantasy X.
