    I stayed up till about 4:30 every morning when I rented that, absolute beauty of a game. That is just BioWare doing its thing though...

    I liked FF7, I didn't like having to level materia up. That got to be a real pain in the ass, especially when I needed several All materias leveled up and had to start from fresh, takes too long.

    Drawing in FF8 wasn't too bad, but it could still be a pain.

    And Diabolus mentioned it. Legend of Legaia. http://www.gamerevolution.com/review/legend-of-legaia

    Socking black chicken looking things to start a game, kept me going through a rough combat system for quite a while.

    FFX-2 was horrible. Super femmy Brother was worth many a laugh though.

    I completed spaced it, but Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2 account for so many hours of my life. It was right after my accident and I spent 2 months eating pain pills and playing NWN1 & 2 until I got my skin graft. Those games go on and on forever and they're amazing for that. Got me through a rough period of time.

    Rammstein never covered any kind of track in FFX. I think you mean this one:

    Uematsu composed. The Black Mages and the vocalist Bill Muir then did a cover of it. :)

    It does have their vibe though.

    Anyhow... recently played FFIV on the PSP.. Good game! :D

    It sounds closely identical to Rammstein.

    This is exactly what i think whenever they come out with a voice for any of the characters that did not have one previously it just never lives up to our own imagination i guess.

    +1. I wouldn't even picture Sephiroth speaking English so much as Japanese with subtitles.

    I've been meaning to comment on this, but I forgot. Anyway, that's part of what I love about the game. I'm on my 7th playthrough or so, and I'm still learning new stuff.

    Also, this really, really helps.

    If I were to rank FF games (that I've played) from best to worst it would probably go...

    #1 Final Fantasy VIII
    #2 Final Fantasy X
    #3 Final Fantasy XI
    #4 Final Fantasy VII
    #5 Final Fantasy XII
    #6 Final Fantasy XIII

    That's not to say 12 and 13 were bad games. I liked them, but grinding and leveling up in 12 was so boring. All I did was just walk around and let them all auto-battle.

    13 has a much better battle system but the characters and dialouge was pretty terrible. 12 had a smart script with some mature dialouge. With 13, they went back to cheesy campy lines.

    Snow was not fun nor was he "cool", he was just cheesy. And Vanille was horribly annoying. On the other hand Sazh, Lightning and Fang were cool and funny. But they're no Baltheir, Fran and Basch.

    Sazh is the Auron of XIII, the only character I liked and thus the only character I cared about.

    That is a bad sign, by the way...

    IMO you should play FFVI (III on SNES) it is a timeless classic. :)

    (to tiny) Definately. FFVI and Chrono Trigger are two RPG's I missed out on.


    To be honest I think Sazh is more the comic relief character like Baltheir and Wakka. To me, Lightning was the Auron in XIII. No sense of humour, just a badass.

    The thing I love about 10 (besides the gameplay) is the story. I like how we're introduced to Spira through Tidus. In most games we're thrown into this world we know nothing about. But having our main character brought into it with a narrative story really helped gamers get lost within FF10's world.

    But 8 will always be my favortie. I'll never forget finishing Disc 1 with that cliffhanger ending and spending my entire day in school wondering what was going to happen next on disc 2 :D

    Good list, but chop out 11 (havent played it), add a 9 in its place. And swap 12 and 13...because I hated licenses more than linearitaritytytyty
