    I love Dark Messenger as much as the next guy but this is probably the best unique boss theme in the entire franchise.


    FFX it is.

    Keeping Moonflower on her toes if she wants to ensure the "Most Wrong Member" title, eh?

    I'm not terribly surprised by this outcome so far and while I hope there's a last-minute switcheroo, ah well, at least IX fans are happy!

    The winner will probably just get crushed by VII anyways. At least I think it will.

    This doesn't make sense, I can't believe X is losing.

    Believe it, kid. FFIX roxors your boxers.

    It's either a sign of how many people hate Tidus, or how many love Vivi. Or nostalgia. Or something. It's really close though. There's no telling how this one will turn out yet. Love it.

    I like Vivi, but I probably like Zidane and Quina more. But I probably like Lulu more than any of the other characters in these games. Shame she's not the lead, I think a story surrounding her would be pretty cool.

    20/48 hours in and already we're at 50ish votes. There are already a lot of upset people here too. This pleases me~

    Oh dear! I see someone from the X crowd was foolhardy enough to bring the soundtracks into this! And to think I was going to be so nice and go easy on you...

    Well, since that door has opened, I think we can all agree that X has the superior primary battle theme. Boss Theme...debatable, it depends on how much you like Nakano's atmospheric style where nothing really happens. To Zanarkand of course and a few others are absolute classics, I doubt anyone will claim the FFX soundtrack is anything other than sublime.

    Trouble is, for every To Zanarkand FFIX has half a dozen You're Not Alone's. For every Yuna's Determination there are two Bran Bals. For every Enemy Attack there was a Vamo Alla Flamenco! It had really catchy world map music. Do you remember FFX's world map music? Oh wait... X didn't have a world map? Shame really. FFIX has one of the all time great soundtracks. There was so much of it in fact they released a second soundtrack in order to get on all the brilliant pieces composed for the game's many FMV sequences. X completely neglected this area, with the notable exception of the Sending scene. But completely lacked anything like, well... this!

    And a lot of you guys didn't believe me when I predicted that IX would win!

    I said it before and I'll say it again: X is too polarizing of a title. Even a lot of people who would rate IX as just a middling FF will vote for it just to keep X out. Oh well, it'll be funny when it goes up against VII.

    FFX has one of my favorite soundtracks in the game. Uematsu, Hamauzu, and Nakano are my favorite composers in Square and all three of them had a hand in this one

    The only thing that could have possibly made it better is if Yoko Shimomura could have squeezed in there too.

    IX will get stomped by VII because of fanboys but not by X! Not by X.

    Even though I voted for IX I was hoping for X to win because VII vs. X is a battle of generations. IX is a great game though.

    Everyone know you have the worst taste in FF titles. That's just a fact.

    I voted IX, but it's incredibly close for me. I wouldn't really call it nostalgia since I didn't like IX the first time I played it, and I beat X before I ever got far in IX. It all just depends on my mood which game I have more fun playing, though.
