@FullbringIchigo That's honestly kind of lame. Only a digital release, and this late. Seems kinda pointless. I would imagine it'll under-perform and they'll wonder why. Not think about the platform audience combined with a digital stealth release.

@Jaz007 that's what i was thinking

"Don't try to be a great man just be a man and let history make it's own judgments"

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

@nessisonett 12 should've been: "Wait, FFXII is real? they didn't just skip a number?"
Because before the rerelease, it was hard to find someone on the internet let alone in person who could personally confirm the game was real and even less that actually played it. It's kinda just, forgotten and nobody ever talked about it, at all.

@nessisonett Tidus hijacked a good woman's story and epic journey story which is tantamount to mansplaining.

Hahaha (exactly the same cutscene from FFx)

"Why You Think You Hate It: The weird (even for Final Fantasy) plot essentially retells Shinji’s emotional arc from Neon Genesis Evangelion in a world of alien-owned high schools and amnesiac orphans, and yet it still remains the franchise’s most consistent attempt at telling a love story."

That's... really not why I think I hate FF8.

@kyleforrester87 FF8 is marmite dipped pork scratchings.

Sounds ace to me.

@themcnoisy Nah, I don't hate FF8. But neither did I think "oh gee, this story is totally ripping off Shinji's emotional arc from Neon Genesis Evangelion!"

I also don't believe it's possible to genuinely dislike FF9, and I won't hear another word about that.

"Why you think you hate it: Because you don’t have any other option. This game has become so inescapable that saying it’s your favorite entry in the series is almost boring. So even if the story of Cloud fighting for the right to his own identity changed your life, you can’t call it your favorite. It belongs to everyone now."

... Yeah that's not why I don't like (hate is such a strong word) FFVII at all... This whole article is a bunch of crock

I think we found your brother @kyleforrester87 of TryHarderman 😂

I'm playing Bravely Second at the moment, and while it's a FFlite in many respects (this is often a good thing by the way, it really trims the fat and your imagination can fill in the blanks) but it bulks the game out in other ways. In particular I really enjoy the explanations that come with the items you collect. Cool bit of thoughtful world building, and as a Final Fantasy fan it's fun to see how some of the items I've been using in those games for decades are made. Science!

@kyleforrester87 See, I just don’t know about FF9. It’s definitely not my least favourite since the gameplay is objectively better than most games in the series. However, for me, the story isn’t as good as VI or VII. Plus, the constant splitting of party means that I’m currently on the Desert Palace with pretty much no hope of completing it as I had been using my usual tactic of ‘find cool party, mark out the Cait Siths of the game and swear to never use them’. It probably sits middle of the bunch for me but V is the only one I haven’t at least started so that could change.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett I do agree that the game loses steam in the 3rd quarter, but the first half and finale are awesome. I love everything that happens in Alexandra and Lindblum, and watching Zindane and Dagger get closer was way nicer than the love story in FF8. And the ending is probably my favourite ending of all time.

Eiko is kind of annoying, and Amarant doesn't really have much of an impact but the rest of the cast are fantastic.

well i was reading it until i got to the one on FFX and then i said to myself "Did this person ever actually play these games"

now i was going to say something on all of the but instead i'll just comment on what was said about FF8 and FF10

The weird (even for Final Fantasy) plot essentially retells Shinji’s emotional arc from Neon Genesis Evangelion in a world of alien-owned high schools and amnesiac orphans, and yet it still remains the franchise’s most consistent attempt at telling a love story

NO it's about 2 people overcoming their fear of loss and abandonment and finding the family that they always wanted

Tidus. This entire game is based around the slowly dawning horror of Yuna’s situation, and the bravery and strength she displays as she marches towards a violent Lovecraftian death. And yet the entire narrative is hijacked by some asshole jock in lederhosen yelling about how her death is His Story. It’s mansplaining framed as a love story. Luckily, Square would learn from its mistake and never have a bland, smiling nothing of a main character at the expense of the expanded cast ever again

again WRONG FFX was about both the stories of Tidus and Yuna and how they started in different places but then intertwined with each other and how he helped change the tragic ending of her story into a better one at the expense of ending his

who ever wrote that article needs to actually go and play a FF game instead of reading them up on Wikipedia or looking at memes because they are wrong on EVERY count and in honesty the only real answer to that whole thing is this...

FullbringIchigo

@kyleforrester87 maybe it is but if he missed the point of the games and what they were trying to do then his opinion is wrong

"Don't try to be a great man just be a man and let history make it's own judgments"

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

nessisonett

@FullbringIchigo I think the article’s a p*sstake taking aim at hardcore FF fans that love to assert their opinions as fact. It just makes fun of the worst aspect of every game except XIII where the worst aspect is the game itself 😉

FullbringIchigo

@nessisonett XIII isn't a bad game it's just different

"Don't try to be a great man just be a man and let history make it's own judgments"

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

@nessisonett Thanks for posting it as I found it pretty funny but it reminded me never to look at kotaku on my phone. Horrendous website without an adblocker!

you know that article got me thinking about what things in a FF game people might not like so i'm gonna ask it here

What ONE thing don't you like from each FINAL FANTASY

now a few rules first ONE THING ONLY, what is the worst aspect of each FF game you played (and saying "the entire game" doesn't count)

second, you must fully explain why you don't like these elements, no single word or lines like "because i don't", if you don't explain then people can't understand

third, you CAN use the same thing for multiple games if you want, after all sometimes in a series like this aspects carry over between games

fourth, spin off games such as Dissidia, Crystal Chronicles or 4 Heroes of Light are included too, it's not just main line games

and finally BE RESPECTFUL not everyone will share your opinion or they may dislike a aspect that you love, everyone is entitled to their opinion and no opinion is wrong in this because everyone is different

so with that being said have at it and have fun
