Thread: Was this your first FF?

    Nope. My first is FF VIII- yes, the one that you guys hate so much.

    Yuuup. It was the first FF game I'd fully completed anyways - I'd tampered around with FFVIII and XII about five years prior, but never finished them. I'm glad I became obsessed with XIII, too...it led me to discover an awesome series~

    Nope the original FF was my first. To be honest if 15 is anything like XIII it will be my last of the series. It is one of the worst games I've ever played. I honestly took out the disk, snapped it and will never pick it up ever again. It's not a true FF title.

    You shouldn't get so emotional. You could have traded it in for an actually good game, like Tales of Xillia.

    Well, that was a little unnecessary. Hell, if you hated the game that much, trade it in or give it to someone who won't destroy a perfectly working game. Does every FFXIII thread really need to decay into a declaration of hate for FFXIII though? Good god. It's so tiring to discuss FFXIII with hate flowing everywhere.

    Tales of Xillia though. lol. Can't vouch for that corny mess; I can't bring myself to play Jude's story after finishing Milla's either. Music and combat was good, though, I'll give it that. Still wondering if I should bother with Xillia 2, but I hear it's just more of the same.

    Well, that's actually the point of this thread. It is quite interesting that fans of the older series are, to put it lightly, disappointed with XIII (myself included). I was just wondering how those who started with XIII got hooked on the series and how the rest looks to them.

    And don't worry, Nutty - XV looks like the complete opposite so far Also, just the fact that Toriyama hasn't touched it is good enough news

    You can say "it's not a true FF title", but...it is. No matter how much you or others may hate it, it doesn't stop it from becoming a main numbered entry.

    Also so did you really snap the disc or are you just saying that for dramatic effect?

    i said it for dramatic effect. What I really did with the game is give it to a organization in town that gives used games and toys to underprivileged children in the area. I also each year pick a child from their list at Christmas and buy that child Christmas gifts. I'm a softy I know.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Really it was the easiest game with a FF title. I may revisit it but it's highly doubtful. It was the only game in the series that would play itself for you.

    It was the fourth FF game I played. After X, X-2 and XII.

    I don't really understand all the vitriol towards it. It really doesn't 'play itself' any more than XII does, it was less linear than X, the story took off a lot more quickly than X or XII, and the characters were more interesting than in X or X-2.

    I gather that some people think that the sci-fi setting isn't Final Fantasy enough. But, I love sci-fi, so that wasn't an issue for me. Plus, isn't the beloved VII quite sci-fi?

    It's not the sci fi. A lot of people simply disagree with your assessment. But that's a topic for another thread. Soon, perhaps.

    I enjoyed FFXIII (XIII-2 was better) but for me, VII, VIII (Second fave), and XI were good and ranked higher.

    My absolute all time favourite however is X.

    Yes I know it is linear, but it didn't feel it.

    The story was absorbing, the voice acting was good and I empathised a lot with the characters and could control them all.

    Oh, and Blitzball.

    Also, XIII held you back too much and stopped you levelling up (my favourite thing in the earlier games was just levelling up and collecting gil so that I was overlevelled for the story) or learning skills to make your job easier. The Crystarium felt like a poor imitation of X's sphere grid (IMHO anyway).
