The Final Fantasy series is, arguably, one of the most overrated game series ever.
Even so, the games ( for the most part) are enjoyable and they're popular enough for Square Enix to continue to produce more.
Just as the thread title indicates, which Final Fantasy games have you played and what do you think of them?
Final Fantasy 7- Possibly the Series' opus, this enstallment is the most well known of the games (I think so anyway). This was the last game I bought before I got my PS2 and, honestly, I got it because of all the praise I heard people give it. I bought it, played it and...it was good. Not great, but good.
My biggest complaint with the game, is the fact that it runs for SO LONG. Good god this game takes forever and because of that, it got really boring in a few spots.
The story was well executed (for the most part) and the majority of the characters were good.
Also, for those who know, how is the game different if you don't find Yuffie or Vincent? I always found both, but I always wondered how the game would differ.
Final Fantasy 8- Fun to play, but disappointing overall. People say this one is the absolute worst, but I disagree...to an extent.
This was the first FF game I played, so therefore maybe I'm biased towards it. I think the battle system is fun and I loved using the GF's .
However, A large chunk of the characters were uninteresting/annoying and the games ending is basically a slap to the face and tells that you pretty much wasted hours of your life on the game. Those who have finished the games should know what I mean.
Final Fantasy 10- I could be in the minority for this, but I actually enjoyed playing FFX.
Is it the greatest game ever? No, but it is a fun way to kill some time.
The story was...pretty stupid, but I think it's alright to have a game with a not so great storyline on occasion. Hell the majority of storylines people create for their D&D games are exasperatingly ridiculous.
I liked all of the characters, except for Tidus and Yuna (Not liking the leads, who knew?). Yuna got a little better as the game progressed, but Tidus was always a whiny, retarded-ass beach boy with peroxide brain damage. Alot of times I wished Kimahri would eat him. I absolutely loved Lulu.
The best part of the game was the battle system and the Aeons.
Final Fantasy X-2- Oh my sweet AllahBuddhaChrist This game was horrible! Forget FF8, THIS is the worst in the series! There is almost nothing redeemable in this game.
It is a continuation of a story that I didn't think needed more added to it. I thought the ending of FFX was, while ambiguous, overall decent.
The only Notable characters were Paine and Yuna (who is 10x better here; too bad it's in such a bad game.) All of the leftover characters are either really annoying (Rikku) or too minuscule to even matter. All of the new characters are BORING!
I kinda like the layout thing that you do with the spheres, but do we need to see them transform EVERY SINGLE TIME? It's worse than watching an episode of Sailor Moon.
I also don't like that fact that magic takes to long to use.
Overall, my least favorite that i've played (can't you tell?).
Final Fantasy 13- Haven't finished it (I'm about 25 hours in), but It's pretty good overall.
I'll most likely give a review when I'm finished.
So there's mine.
