    Dancing Chocobo Blitzball: Great minigame, or greatest minigame?

    Also why isn't there a Blitzball Manager video game?

    Wasnt the point of Blitzball in FFX-2 to basically be the manager?

    I liked it but it wouldve been nice if you could actually move in 3d

    If you're talking about the FFX Blitzball then yes it's the greatest (followed extremely closely by Triple Triad), if you're talking about the trash from X-2 then it is neither.

    Triple Triad is better, but Blitzball is still pretty amazing. Though the best FFX minigame is Catcher Chocobo, obviously.

    I really enjoyed FFX's Blitzball, but yes, FFX-2's Blitzball was complete trash. However, Blitzball will never compare to Chocobo Hot and Cold or Chocobo Racing.

    Hated it, just learn Jecht Shot and you basically won almost every game.

    It is the greatest minigame not only in FFX, not only in FF, but in all of videogames.

    Greatest minigame, of course.

    Blitzball was the reason I never completed FFX when I bought it for the PS2. I was obsessed with it. Weirdly though, I didn't play it too much when I completed it on the PS Vita. Maybe I've outgrown it? No idea. It's still a great mini game.

    Did not like it AT ALL. It wouldn't have been so bad if they didn't force you to do it. I get anxiety every single time at that point. Every time. Hated it

    I really liked it but it had its issues. The AI mostly. I thought maybe they'd update it with the remaster but they didn't.

    I really enjoy it but Chocobo Hot and Cold is the best minigame of FF.

    My main issue is that on that first match they force you to do, they make no indication that there is a way to manually control the player with the ball. So when they all swim around in circles and you can't do anything about it, it gives a really poor first impression.

    Other than that yes is is the greatest.

    I'm with Bubba where it took me years to finish FFX, but my Blitz team had a level 99 and had a insane record.
