*says with slight shyness* I'm kinda afraid of getting burned here, especially since I'll be the first in the thread to say this with much emphasis: I LOVED ff8. It, in my opinion, had the best music and ending FF-wise. And I love Selphie and her train obession. w00t

I also like FFVIII more than the average person. biggrin.gif As for the title of "best ending", I cannot decide between FFVIII's or FFIX's.

FFVIII does have one of the best soundtracks, along with FFIX. I see the two scores as the peak of Nobuo Uematsu Sakai's biggrin.gif career. He didn't do anything solo after that and I guess his creative juices stopped flowing, though the opening to FFXI is stunning. Other than that, he hasn't achieved too much since FFIX in terms of game music composing.

see i still don't see what the big deal with ff7 is.... to me its just popular cause it was the first to be 3d and all the sephiroth fanboys....  when it comes down to it the mechanics and gameplay of ff9 were better, plus there was none of that gay chocobo inbreeding.

I also think that FFVII is largely overrated, and its loyal fanboys are definitely something to fear/laugh at. Of course, I haven't finished the game because I lost interest after a while. At least FFVIII had something that kept me going (though to this day, I still don't know what it is).

I loved FF8 and I'm not afraid to say it. I thought it was so much better than FF7; However, there were weird story points in FF8, like how they all came from the same orphanage... wth?

See, I loved FF7. I thought it had a great story. It was dark, most of the characters were likeable. But, it was the first RPG I had ever played so that may be the reason it was my favorite of the series. I've found that with most people their first RPG is always their favorite.

Plus, Sephiroth is to die for. tongue.gif But that could be my men-with-long-hair fetish too. laugh.gif

I really loved FF7. It was just...so classic. Filled with wonderful color, music (although it was a little midi-ish) and unforgettable villians and characters. I just love it, and it definately has the most tragic moment in any FF game created. I think we all know what that is though.

The only thing I hate about FVII was the ending but then that's why Advent children is coming out. Though I have to agree it's overrated.

although i did enjoy FF8, i too hated rinoa. she was just too much of the damsel in distress kind of character, and i was hoping that you could kill her while you're fighting against adel, but no, if you did, game over! quistis was the best character. the only thing that i don't get about final fantasy is, why do they put the most helpless female characters in the games, with the exception of:
Yuffie, Tifa, and Aeris from 7
Quistis and Selphie from 8
Garnet and Freya from 9
Yuna, Rikku, and Lulu from 10
and Yuna, Rikku, and Paine from 10-2


this has bothered me for awhile, so if any could answer this, thank you.

It's really sad in a way that FF8 didn't live up to all the hype it produced before it was released. I think the best thing about that game was the demo. It made you believe in something better... In any case, the game sucked. The gamer in me tells me I should just finish the game to say I've finished it, but...

As for FF7, I think the game was pretty good. I really liked the materia system, plus the plot seemed to progress pretty well, but the ending really did suck. At least they did better on FF9.

there's also the FF-XII characters, but i'm not wanting to name them all. also the first 6, i never got into, and tatics, you were able to hire soldiers, and it was more of a tatics game than anything.

i think the reason that many don't like ff8, is that the plot sucked (which, i, an avid fan, also agrees on), but also if they had kept it at it's original M-rating, it probably would never have sold at all. Plus in the M-rating, you start out different. Rinoa is a student at Balamb and helps you in the Dollet SeeD mission. and they don't wear their SeeD uniforms. You don't even meet Selphie until later.

Where did you get this information? huh.gif Was that what the plot was originally going to be like? I do not think I have heard of anything quite like that. The only difference I have seen in the game is between the PS version and the PC version.

They should have just kept Selphie out altogether.

The Colonel's Girl, I have one thing to say about your last post. What are you talking about? M-rating??? Explain please. huh.gif

I liked FF8. It was ok. Squall was kinda cool and Rinoa was cute AT FIRST but, than later got annoying. dry.gif Quistis was the best female character. Zell......was plain retarded. I hated hearing from my stupid classmates that he was what you get when you mix Cloud and Tifa from FFVII......BURN IN HELL ALL OF YOU!!!!! Seifer was.....okay. Irvine was.....girly. Selphie was cute and annoying.

In my opinion, Rinoa.....your a cheap Tifa doppleganger. Squall.....get a haircut and put a paper bag with a smile over your face. Zell.....sit your ass down before I kill you. Seifer.....kick Squalls ass. XD Quistis.....your too good for the party your in. Irvine.....your just a gay version of Vincent from FF7 that can't shoot for ****. Selphie.....=\.......not sure what to say so whatever. I think whats best of this game is the very imperfection of the characters......=\....what?....its what i think, so meh tongue.gif

No wonder that the sky above is always there within your view!
To stumble with eyes looking down is just an ordinary trip,
But while you're looking at the starsits such a graceful, wonderous slip!
This cruel uncaring callous world may betray you all one day,
But here's one thing to keep in mind should disaster come your way.
When made with love and tender care by man or beast or fish or clam,
The one delight to always please is freshly made raspberry jam."

How many times did Rinoa get kidnapped over the course of this game? 4? 5?
Ridiculous.
[snapback]163779[/snapback]




Seriously, she really was the stereo-typical lady is distress. Well, at least she spent a fair portion of the game "asleep." I would not have minded if she simply remained that way. (Sorry, I am releasing all of my pent up Rinoa hate.) I thought that Tifa and Sara were much stronger female leads in the Final Fantasy series. Overall, I just did not really care for the game. The storyline seemed trite and the characters got on my nerves after a while. (However, I did like the character of Laguna)

"I disagree. uhm... I liked the graphics!"
Not exactly the graphics but more on sound and music cool.gif

I like the intro one mostly, sounded something like this (People, people say?)

It was like year 2000 since I touch the game the 3rd time dry.gif
