    Default Worst Final Fantasy X Minigame

    As a result of making it to the Minigames in a recent episode of Lets Play FFX HD #shameless plug it got me thinking that most of these minigames are dumb.

    Which one is the worst. Vote in the comments (Ha, catchphrase from our lets play which you should totally watch)

    butterfly catching and lightning doding were both terrible. I voted lightning dodging.

    Blitzball is actually amazing and doesn't belong on this list.

    Actually, this is my exact reasoning. I would hate it regardless, but it's the only mini-game that you're forced to play.

    I was going to say Chocobo Dodger, but I beat that. I've never beat Lightning Dodging. I got to 83 and almost broke my Vita though.

    Butterfly catching. Love Blitzball, rarely had trouble with Chocobo Racing, and Lightning Dodging is only a problem because it takes so long. I can never do butterfly catching right though, no matter how many times I try.

    Where's my "all of the above" choice? FFX seriously had the worst collection of mini-games in the series though X-2 certainly tried to give it a run for its money. I've never actually gotten Wakka's ultimate weapon completed though, largely because I don't have time to play poorly balanced water sports tournaments for hours on end.

    Ball.

    Well I've finished FFX multiple times, all the minigames completed so I may be kind of biased now but really the worst one is either Cochobo dodger or Monster Hunting if you are really unlucky.

    While I didn't like the mechanics behind BB, I didn't mind playing it. Sure getting Wakka's ultimate weapon and Auroch's reels took decent amount of time, it wasn't that frustrating for me.

    Considering that I like battles a LOT in FFX, monster hunting wasn't really a problem for me sans few exceptions like when you have whole area cleared and you are just waiting for the last tonberry to show up. That sucks allright.

    Lighting Dodge... I never done it the "legal" way. A.K.A. dodging random flash screens. I always did this one through those "lighting will always strike" areas and thus I never really had a problem with this one.

    Butterfly Cathing sure can suck the first ten - twenty times but once you realize that the butterflies do not change their position at all, it can become very easy so I never had a serious problem with this one either.


    Well since I have to choose, the very worst for me was always the Chosobo catcher since I had to run it really good AND wait for great "map".
