    Default What level of tech do you prefer?

    FF generally falls into a few different levels of tech. Which do you prefer?

    I dont prefer any one tech setting over another. It's all just how it's presented. I didnt love the castle and village layouts from I-V but I loved the medieval fantasy setting in IX. I was initially impressed by Zanarkand because of how nice the graphics were at the time but take that away and it's not nearly as nice a setting as Esthar.

    While FFVI is my favourite I have never said "I really like FFVI because it's steampunk" or "I dont like FFVII as much because it's modern"

    I guess I prefer Modern Fantasy Tech, but I'm interested in all of them. Plenty of cool things to explore.

    I tend to lean on the side of modern tech by default, but like Blackmage Nuke I'll love it if I feel it's well presented.

    All of them really, but if I had to pick one, I guess it was Modern Fantasy tech.

    I like the Medieval Final Fantasies. With the castles and dragons and knights and princesses. Especially the princesses.

    I like near future as well. I think I can relate to it slightly better, seeing elements that are also in our world as well. I've never played a medieval style FF game before, so I might want to try one out.

    I like the Medieval stuff the most, but the other styles are fine with me, as well. I didn't mind the high technology mixed with the more traditional elements in FFIV, for example.

    I have a better question: how many people vote for FFVII just because they know it will win?

    I'd actually call FFVII far more steampunk than modern, even if it doesn't fit the bill exactly.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    I chose XV as it makes me think of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
    Not everyone watches Doctor Who... in fact, some people outright hate it... and you.

    Chow Yun Fat as Kambei, Ken Leung as Shichirouji, Mario Lopez as Heihachi,
    Russell Wong as Kyuzo, Dwayne Johnson as Gorobei, Dante Basco as Katsushiro


    --Matthew Arnold--
    Wandering between two worlds, one dead,
    The other powerless to be born,
    With nowhere yet to rest my head,
    Like these, on earth, I wait forlorn.

    To me it's more futuristic/post-apocalyptic dystopia.
