In an FF game, when was the last time that:
1) There was a world map
2) Battles were turn-based
3) Characters leveled up normally, as in numbers, not sphere grids or crystarium things

Because those are the things that I loved about FF7-9, and disliked about FF13

1) There was a world map
FFIX


2) Battles were turn-based
Depends on your definition of turn-based. XIII used a modified version of ATB. If you're talking about full-on turns in main numbered series, FFX, and before that FFIII.


3) Characters leveled up normally, as in numbers, not sphere grids or crystarium things
FFXII! Unless you count MMOs, because then that would be FFXIV.

Yeah I thought the world map thing was last seen in FFIX.

The only ones I've played are FF6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 13. I adore 7 and 8. I like 9. I think 10 is ok. 6 is in theory ok but I couldn't enjoy it much because too dated for me, with no nostalgia. 13 though I found too different and didn't enjoy the gameplay.

That's cool about how 12 levels up normally. I didn't know that. It's been on my list to play for quite a while now, but I don't have a PS2.

I'd say last world map was IX
Normal Level up was XII
and ABS was X I think. May be wrong though.

You should check out FF Brave Exvius on mobile. It's free to play and has all 3 of those.

It's turn based, and you get to use new and classic characters of the series.

You raise your level by fighting, though you can also use the equivalent of "gems" in other games to speed up the process.

It also has a world map, though it's more in line with the FFX world map where you can point and click to go back to places you've previously been, so you may not count that.

I think people are surprised at the depth this game has for being a ftp mobile title. You get to explore cities and dungeons, do side quests, and visit places you only unlock if you search to find them.
