    FVII is the best in my opinion minus the graphics ... and my favourite character (s), i have to say 3 but they were Cloud, that girl with the gloves and Valentine i think his name is ... uses guns.

    Then again, FVIII took awhile to get into but the story line (love wise) was amazing and the song played in the Ragnarock (sp) is amaazing! For that i'd say Squall, Rinoa and Zell...

    Yeah,Final VII is the best one !!I guess Vincent is my favourite character,he looks really cool with his guns.
    I also like Final V on the SNES very much,but I can't beat the last boss :mad: ,and don't want to level up.

    Well you don't need a Playstation to play FF IX,you can play it with an emu,too.But I find the game isn't it worth to look for an emu.

    [​IMG] Hehee, bought a few days ago FF 7 and 9 for my PC... Should be here any day now. It will be interesting to see if the 4 char party (in FF9) will prove to be as good as in FF3...

    Fighter from Final Fantasy One. :)
    Actually, the original Final Fantasy will always be my favorite - I spent years of my life playing it over and over...I can't wait to get Final Fantasy Origins.

    Seriously, two of my favorite characters are Shadow and Locke from FF6. Shadow is the smooth, deadly assassin ninja type, and Locke is your typical dashing rogue. "I'm not a thief! I'm a TREASURE HUNTER!" Great stuff.

    I must be a purist, because the original Final Fantasy will be the standard to which I hold all RPG's forever. My fave was the red wizard and the thief, who later becomes a ninja.

    Did anyone else find it odd that the Black Belt became a 'Master,' and the Theif became the 'Ninja'? Does that seem bass-ackwards or is it just me?

    Death Rabbit rocks!

    Sorry...it's just not often that I hear of another person who thinks FF1 is the best. I honestly do. Sure, the graphics can't compete with the modern versions, but FF set a standard that, just like Death Rabbit, I hold every subsequent RPG up to.

    An what IS up with the Black Belt thing? Maybe it is because ninjas were usually thieves and assassins historically, right? So you start out as a thief and become a ninja? Heh.

    I got every Final Fantasy except Tactics (can't get it in europe :( )
    Origins is a very good game :D
    I think the FF series is the best CRPG series ever (Baldurs gate go home! :p )

    I guess so - they should've have just called him a Monk, in that case. That's really what he is, anyway. I mean, it is actually 4 letters, rather than "BBlt" to abbreviate 'Black Belt'.

    What is 'Origins' coming out for? PS? Haven't heard anything about this, but sounds great...

    Yeah, he is a monk.

    Origins is out this month in the US, right? It includes Final Fantasy 1 and 2, which have been souped up to 32-bit graphics, I think. The plot is pretty much the same as the first from what I read, with a few new enemies. Isn't that right, Jesper?

    I drool in anticipation.

    FF VI is the best game. And Terra is the best character. Mainly because she's the most interesting one.

    FF VII comes as a good second. Aerith and the Turks being the most personally important characters on it.

    Final Fantasies after VII just haven't felt right. And before it they're too ugly. FF VI was the first one I ever played properly as well.

    I've heard a lot about VI...what system is it on? PS1?

    What I liked best about earlier games was the fact that you could construct your party as you saw fit, building the classes of your choice as you go along. Though the newer ones are fun, pretty, and have interesting story lines, I find them way too linear.

    "Start at location A, kill totally random monsters along the way, move to location B. Rinse. Repeat."

    Though I guess some consider that "role playing," I see it as merely piloting a very limited preselected character through a predetermined path, joining up with predetermined allies to unite in open conflict against a predetermined enemy.

    You don't have to think at all, really. The only challenge lies in the battles. There's no character management, because each character is usually only limited to one or two functions. No armor, no changeable traits...Ida know. Just not much there for me. I like to know that my character is getting more powerful because of the choices I make, good or bad.

    Sorry Jesper...don't kill me for my purist beliefs!

    *Slaps Death Rabbit* :D

    Origins is FF 1 and 2 with FF6 style graphics and improved music (it sounds great).
    There are also some extra stuff (like bestiary and game art and the likes) I would recommend Origins to anyone who liked the original FFs :)

    FF 1,2,3,4 and 5 are for children, whereas the subsequent ones are for all ages; that´s why I have found those first FFs disgustingly simple -both in plot and character development. So, trying them again would be just waste of time.

    If any of the games were a waste, they were the FF Adventure and Legend games. Didn't like them one bit.
