Who would it be and why? Keep in mind that this would affect gameplay and story!

I'm not sure really, I rather liked the characters in this game. I suppose Kimahri is the most superfluous, if I had to think about it. I'm not talking gameplay; I found him rather useful funnily enough. But in the story he doesn't get a whole lot of development.

Tidus. Make Yuna the MC in his place and have the whole game be from her perspective.

Kimahri is the most pointless both in gameplay and storywise.

Kimahri is the weakest link in terms of gameplay, but storywise Wakka sucks and should be removed. :P

I think in terms of story Lulu is the weakest. Her backstory is the only optional one.

Ermmm, they did that...its called Final Fantasy X 2

And my pick is Kimahri

Voted for Lulu because honestly she's just one big grump and there's no point in having her anymore once Yuna learns Black Magic.



Kimahri however is cute. And therefore is extra important-'nuff said ! :colbert:

Yes, and I'd prefer to play her in both games. Had a fan trailer that didn't even mention Tidus and had her more in the forefront. Looked so much better.

I recall her being against that plan as soon as she found out she had to sacrifice one of her guardians in addition, so...

Shauna

She and Seymour would have done it together.

Either that or Sin would kill her. The end.

I doubt she'd even done it to Seymour, to tell you the truth.

But yeah, a Final Fantasy game where the bad guys win. Hilarious :roll2

Obviously if she was the main protagonist without a Tidus involvement the story would be rewritten accordingly, so your argument is invalid right out of the gate.

Shauna
01-06-2016, 03:23 PM
Well duh.

But Pumpkin's question asks us to consider the impact it would have on the existing story. So the story as it stands without Tidus' inclusion would have us walk Yuna to her death.

All she said was that it'd affect gameplay and story, which is vague and can be interpret in different ways. Hence my reasoning.

But hey, Square having enough balls to kill off the main character you play as for most of the game would've been something to talk about. Until they retconned it in the sequel after the Spirits Within nearly bankrupted them.

Yeah, but in this case, people would've actually cared.

You know, I'm not the only here to vote for Tidus, nor give an opinion, and yet... for some reason. You lot keep quoting me, and arguing with me back and forth, and to be frank with you. It's getting on my nerves. So, to avoid another haha Ayen rage quit moment, I'm going to log out. I'm going to take a breather. And then I'm going to come back and post a picture of a cat.

The truth will hurt when you realise it yes.....

FFX-2 is a really quite dire game and not as good as FFX.

When you wake up, let me know!! :P

Fynn
01-06-2016, 05:25 PM
Well, it didn't have Tidus in it, so that's definitely a step forward :p

That, and at least the combat wasn't a total slog, and the game at least doesn't pretend to be anything deep anymore :gator:

Apart from his constant need to laugh, I quite enjoyed playing as Tidus.

Wakka was quite annoying with his accent/stupidity.

I also enjoyed the combat. Even the monster arena.

I enjoyed FFX-2, but it is just (for me anyway) not in the same league as FFX

Fynn
01-06-2016, 05:28 PM
Of course it's not. It's nowhere near as terrible :monster:

Rikku offers very little in terms of story and gameplay, overdrive aside. Kimahri makes a better thief when taught Mug and Use with Ability Spheres as he's way tankier, has high MP and actually does damage while using Mug. :colbert:

On top of that I just don't like Rikku. :|

If I could remove one character, I would remove no one. Thankfully, the topic didn't say I *had* to remove one :p. I don't think anyone in the party are both annoying and inconsequential to the story,

Take out Tidus. Split Tidus' roles on the story between Auron and Rikku, with Auron having the Jecht/Zanarkand connection and Rikku driving the anti-Yevon and culture shock storylines. Make Rikku the speedy secondary fighter and make Yuna the main character.

Obviously if she was the main protagonist without a Tidus involvement the story would be rewritten accordingly, so your argument is invalid right out of the gate.

Yuna was never into Seymour romantically, she respected him and admired him as a teacher and only wanted to marry him so others could be happier for a while- this is the young woman who was willing to sacrifice her own life, for everybody else in Spira, so a marriage between her and Seymour was just another big sacrifice for Spira for her. There was no love between them, at least on Yuna's side.

Even with or without Tidus, Lord Jyscal still would've dropped his sphere, and Yuna still would've had her plan/s to try and stop Seymour and then attempt to agree to the marriage at a chance of Sending him. Rikku would still throw the Al Bhed grenade to halt the wedding, because she would've still had the desire to become a Guardian to protect her cousin. Yuna would still use summons to escape from Seymour.

Love Tidus or hate the guy, but his role of the story was to introduce the player into Spira- whenever you had a question about something Spira related- you had that question too, Tidus was there to answer the question, and to help world building and to help the player understand this fantasy universe and it's culture and rules.

I choose to disregard the choices in the poll and take Seymour out of the game. I like some of the concepts behind him, but I don't think those concepts were utilized well and the character wasn't very good. I can probably say that about most characters and aspects of the game though despite liking the game myself.

A bold choice, but a quite good one non the less.

I applaud you for your non-conformity.

Quite a big rewrite though. :erm:

X and X-2 are both good games. Just like Alien and Aliens are both good movies. You don't have to choose one or the other.













But like Alien, X is better than its sequel.

I was going to vote for Kimahri until I read this!

Sorry (not sorry), Tidus. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

iXanon
07-31-2016, 11:03 AM
I voted Rikku, simply because I didn't really like her and don't think she particularly 'fits' with the other characters of the game.

It was a close call between her and Lulu - I hardly used Lulu at all for battles (and am now suffering the consequences grinding away at her sphere grid).

FFNut
08-15-2016, 03:39 PM
Kimahri. He is the weakest link on the team as his overdrive is subpar, and his sphere grid is underwhelming. However he is the link to the Ronso's however you could cut him and still have a story there

I'd take out Yuna so that way all characters could be equal in the number of Aeons that they have lol!
On a serious note, I don't know who I"d like to see removed. I feel every character has some form of importance in the game.
