    Chocobo Characters You Want to See More Of!

    Here's another article I found floating around: 5 FF Characters Who Deserve Spin-Off Games.

    Who would YOU like to see more?

    I vote Kain. Because he's mothersmurfing Kain.

    Well, the list started off good, naming one of my favorite characters in the series, but it lost me after that. Zell? Wtf? And the others were just jokes.

    The first person who came to mind when I thought spinoff game was Balthier. Thinking about it more, I would love to see a game staring FFVI's Shadow about his early days that are alluded to in his dreams.

    I think the only ones that really make sense are prequels to characters with more adventurous backstories. IMO any sort of sequel is just stupid. In any JRPG the characters have become so god slaying powerful that any attempts to have them start over from the beginning of an adventure just feel forced.

    Kain is an interesting character that I would like to see more of as he is off journeying on his own, but I can't see that making a good game.

    Having a game showing what Auron was up to in between Jecht's defeat of Sin and the start of FF10 would be interesting. (I can't believe I said a return to the FF10 world would be interesting.)

    Balthier and Shadow are both great suggestions, they obviously have great adventures prior to their in game appearance.

    If you wanted to you could take Orlandu and make a wicked game about the 50 Years War.

    But Zell is awesome! Zell was one of the characters I was thinking of before I even clicked the article. I even named a guinea pig after him.

    Cid Highwind is another character I'd love to see more of. He's such a badass. Shame he was only in Advent Children for like two seconds and didn't speak.

    I would watch a Balthier chat show. I would tune in to a Balthier radio show. I would play Final Fantasy XII-2 as long as it had Balthier in.

    Balthier, man.

    A cheesy tokusatsu series centred on Tifa using martial arts and flashy effects would be immensely cool.

    Laguna is an obvious one for me. His story as a soldier was always interesting and his travels would be a good story if not an interesting game.

    The journey of Lulu's original pilgrimage would be interesting if a little bit anticlimactic. Auron and Jecht's pilgrimage with Braska would be awesome.

    Fratley's journey to rediscover his memory would be awesome too. Even just more on Fratley and Freya would be nice. Quina and Amarant are also underdeveloped.

    A lot of the cast in VI could do with more. Setzer is a favourite of mine and his gambling could lead to all sorts of shenanigans.

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.

    I could agree with all of those in the article with the exception of Zell. Since the article mentioned it I think it's a bit weird that we've gotten several games for chocobos, but none for moogles.

    I wouldn't mind a FFIX prequel that has you playing as Beatrix and her history with the Alexandrian army. The game would be part action and part strategy where you have to manage your troops and the high point in the game would be the part where Beatrix referenced in the game where she defeated a hundred men singlehandedly.

    This. She was one of the best characters in FFIX and her story was greay and should be expanded on. Maybe about her reserving her kingdom and reconnecting with Fratley?

    Freya would be a good one. She has a back story, but she's a side enough character in the game that her own story would be fresh.

    Though I like Auron, the problem with him having a game (with Jecht and Braska) is that their story was such a focus of FFX that any prequel would have to go through severe retcon to be interesting or fresh. And you can't have a sequel with him for...obvious reasons.
