Which One is Sadder/ better IMO/your fav?
I thought that both of the first two games were pretty sad, but over all I think the 1st was sadder. probably beacuase some people saw armony as a possible match for edawrd. with elma's case, shse slready had someone. Elma also died first, so that made things a little less depressing in the second game.
which one do you think was the saddest in your opinion? Which one is your fav?

Yeah, not trying to fight here either. I guess what I mean to say was more like if anyone like FullMetal Alchemist for its difference and uniqueness, then there's no way they'll like anything by SquareEnix, like that Broken Angel story.
You see, every anime these days are like a guy who's handsome, and a girl who captures his heart but suffers and needs his help. He saves her and the world and they're all happy in the end. Everything is like that these days, especially those SquareEnix games. The girl is the key to saving the world and she needs a goodlooking guy by her side. Just think of Yuna, Aeris, Rinoa, and Garnet. I mean, no offense at all. People might actually like those stories, but like I said, I always like to pursue newer stuff, so those bore me really bad. So old. And Broken Angel (again, no offense) is just one of those old corny stories to me.
I mean, come on now, a wing, suffers from a past she don't know, argue with the guy but then in the end, developing something between them. and she dies, and he was sad. U knoe, they tried to make it that they argue so when she dies, it'll be sadder 'cuz we'll be like, "NO! They won't even argue anymore!" They tried everything to make us sad, it seems.
1. The letter in the end, when Armony was talking in the letter. 2. Armstrong said that "She would have been a great alchemist indeed". 3. Ed said, "But if you die, everything ends". Strangely, when I heard that, it doesn't strike me 'cuz i remember hearing another anime character saying it before. I don't remember who. But Ed didn't strike me 'cuz he wasn't the first one to say it. 4. The pastor made a flower field. 5. Roy nearly cried, which was stupid by the way 'cuz he don't cry to start with, especially over a girl that he don't know. He never even talked to her face to face.
Yeah, so i guess they did all that in the end to make us cry, but I was like yawning and like, "You know, it ain't working".
And what more, in the end, when Ed was all trying to go against Roy and everyone to save Armony, he terribly reminded me of Tidus when he found out Yuna was gonna die. The stupid emotional wuss (Tidus of course) was all breaking down and crying. And it kills to see Ed like that 'cuz he's emotional, but not...that way. I don't know, it's just something I can't explain.
And yet again, we see another old thing that Square has once again repeated. The idea that the guy would go against everything outta his way, against what he had to save his precious girl. In FFIX, Zidane decided to quit Tantulus to go with Garnet. And here, Ed was willing to beat the crap outta Major Armstrong and his higher rank officer, Mustang, just for the girl. And the way he acted, it was emotional and dramatic, but it's not Ed's emotional and dramatic. It looks like they took Tidus and put into him at that point.
I don't know. I can't explain it. It's one of those things that we can see rather than say.
Anyways, to top it all, it's just old, and I'm bored.
thats a good point. thank you for that also [<---no sarcasm] Square does like to put things from their past game into the newer ones [EX]Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts. we're kinda going off topic so i won't say anything else on the matter, to me i just like sappy stories ;;
