Thread: EoFF Ranks Final Fantasy Final Vote - FFVII vs FFIX

  1. #46

    Regarding the Turks actually - if Cissnei had been in Final Fantasy VII... well, it wouldn't sway my vote but I'd like FFVII even more than I already do. The Turks were great and Cissnei was the best of them. Characters like her (and Zack of course who is a great protagonist) easily makes Crisis Core the best main franchise spin-off (including sequels but not stuff like FFT). SO yeah, the Turks were awesome, they had a cool theme, Rufus was pretty cool as well and Cissnei would have been the cherry on top. IX certainly lacked anything like them.

    They were kinda like the Judges in XII. But more...sleazy.

    Dunno about the art direction. Sure IX was HQ+++ compared to VII, but too bad the PSX couldn't really show that.

    Shinra really is a fantastic antagonist conceptually. I'd say they were a fantastic antagonist in general, but it's been forever since I've played all of VII and can't remember how well it was pulled off. I do now kind of wish that Sephiroth had a lot less screen time though. Not that he had that much, but I did really like the opening stuff as you mentioned, Psychotic. There's something really menacing and exciting about an antagonist when you just keep seeing the aftermath but rarely if ever actually seeing the person that caused it.

    Final Fantasy 9 is not winning, but I am so proud that my baby is doing so well.

    Time to cast my vote. I've thought long and hard about it but it's got to be FFIX.

    FFVII was fantastic. It was my introduction to Final Fantasy, and without it I doubt I'd be here now voting at all. The game has so many memorable moments; the sector 7 plate collapsing, escaping from ShinRa HQ, the attack on Junon. Then you have the optional side quests of Yuffie and Vincent which also adds to the experience. Also, Yuffie is one of my favourite FF characters.

    However I'm voting in terms of enjoyment and replayability. FFIX takes it there. Replaying FFVII is a bit of a chore, but I can easily jump back in to IX. It has a good story with a great cast of characters, and I love the games art style and fun nature. Plus Steiner loves Pickles, definitely a man of my own heart.

    This sums me up perfectly.

    I voted for FFVII

    It wasn't my first RPG, my first 3D game, or even one of my top three FFs and I still voted for it

    edit: If only FF IX was switched out for FF II. Then my top four FFs would be the top four in this event

    My first RPGs were tabletop games, nerd On computer it was stuff like The Bard's Tale and HoMM, and I played some PSX JRPGs before FFVII came along too. Plus I don't know how many people would have it as their first 3D game given that the PSX and Saturn had been out for awhile before this, and even release games like Battle Arena Toshinden, Krazy Ivan, Destruction Derby, Wipeout, and Jumping Flash were full 3D. No doubt some did because they bought the console on the back of FFVII alone, but not that many.

    It wasn't like that for me. I was heavy into RPGs during the SNES era (dabbed a bit on it on the NES days but not much) and my first FF was IV (but the first one I finished and which got me hooked into the series was VI). I was also playing 3D games on my Mac long before I had a Playstation.

    At least IX has put up a good fight. It's not like VII is winning by a landslide.

    I'm happy with whichever wins though.

    You know, I thought this final would go something more like this:

    I thought there would have been a closer race here, but I am still not surprised by this result.

    In a shock win surprising no one FFVII has beaten FFIX by IX votes and is crowned EoFF's favourite Final Fantasy. Post shocked gifs and disappointed faces below.

    Ah well. Nobody's perfect, I'm sure the rest of you will see sense eventually
