Holy shit, I just got the three missing jobs from the hidden dungeon. Gladiators are fucking broken, I mean, they can equip almost ANYTHING, have high strenght, and don't even let me get started on those finishers. Everyone in my party has it, and I can basically plow through most enemies with some luck.
Gonna train until I'm level 45 and have some mastered jobs before entering the Rift.

Holy shit, I barely beat Omega. Had to use Dual-wield + Spellblade Thundaga + Rapid Fire in order to kill it. If it didn't counter, it'd been much easier. Have I told you guys how much I HATE monsters that counter?
I hope Shinryu is easier, or at least doesn't have such a broken evasion.

I swiped a used copy of FFVI Advance for £12. Not too shabby considering new copies are never below £50.

Wher did you get it? I need VI BADLY.

Also SPOILERS

A lot to talk about. First, FUCK YOU NECROPHOBE! BECAUSE OF YOU, EARTH'S MOST AWESOME MAN IS DEAD! I'LL DRAG YOUR UNDEAD ASS BACK FROM HELL AND BRUTALLY MURDER YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN FOR THAT!
Second, I beat Shinryu. He WAS easier than Omega, especially because he wasn't as aggressive and elusive.
Third, I thought ExDeath in his tree form was really fearsome-looking, and while his Neo version was random, it also looked cool. Speaking about that, I loved the ExDeath battles' theme and the Final Boss them. I had heard the latter somewhere quite some time ago, but I didn't know where it was from. But I was CERTAIN it came from FF.
And fourth: I liked the ending, with the flashbacks and all. I also liked how it varies with how many party members survived the last battle.

Overall, it's a great game. It goes to the middle of my list of favorite FF. Now to finish IV.

In FFIV, I just beat the Gigas Worm and got all of the weapons in Mt. Ordeals. You know, I'm kind of shocked at how pathetic Edward's HP is. I'm at level 50 and he barely has 1100 HP. One thing annoys me about this game: whenever you enter a battle, the music resets. And since the caves have such a high encounter rate (another thing I dislike), I've heard the beggining of the cave music a thousand times already. And it's getting annoying.

Don't worry, you only use him for a little bit. The party system wasn't yet implemented, so characters come and go in IV.

A handy little site called eBay. Just see what the auctions provide and hope you don't have to spend too much for one copy. I put a maximum bid of £30 since I know FFV/VI Advance are becoming so rare now. FFIV is actually easy to get but I'm not sure if I want to pick it up considering FFIV on the PS1 isn't that bad.

I'd like to become part of this club if it's not too late.
I own FFIX and FFXIII and love both, I've finished XIII and once I finish IX I'm going to replay it again. It was brilliant.

Then I guess I should start saving and hope that the price doesn't go up. But maybe I'll go look in the darkest corners of my city before I rely on eBay.

Eh, I think you have the PS1/SNES version in mind. I have the Advance version, and I can easily swap party members at Mysidia, and they can level up while not being in the party at all. Kinda like VII, except they receive full EXP.

I have finished IV as well. One thing to say, and one thing only: the ending was FANTASTIC. One of the best endings I`ve seen. Maybe I`ll do the whole aftergame stuff, but right now, I don`t feel like it, and I`ve yet to complete XIII. But maybe I`ll replay VII or VIII again instead...l`m not sure.
This one goes to the middle of my list as well, though one place above V. Great game.

The titan guy? Nah, he's a fal'cie. Eventually you do marks for him, including Tonberry.

You know what? I take it back; transforming summons aren't bad, only because they made the party's return to Cocoon really awesome.
Also, when I was finally finishing my Crystarium, it expands again. Dammit.

I have finished XIII. I liked the ending, and both the plot and the characters are a few steps above XII, and while still sub-par to most of the others, I still liked them.
The battle system was intense and definetely fun.
However, a few things bring it down: the soundtrack. One third of it is very unfitting and another third has LYRICS, which should NOT be in any song other than the main theme. The rest was acceptable and there were some good ones as well. Another thing that blazed my balls was that "party leader dies = game over" bullshit. It made the game VERY hard for an unnecessary reason, to the point to where it was frustating. I also disliked the level-up system because it's the same thing as the Sphere Grid, which I HATE. It's so damn slow and you never know when you're underleveled.
Also, the lack of sidequests (the only one was a poor man's version of XII's awesome hunting sidequest) was disappointing. And last, but not least, I hated the weapon upgrading stuff. It takes so many stuff and time and gil to improve them so little. No FF should EVER have weapon upgrading (and yeah, I hated Customization in X as well), just give us normal weapons. No need for a project like those.
All in all, a good game, but had too many flaws and was weak as a FF. Goes to the bottom of my list, as the fourth-to-last FF.

And, of course, that means that now I only need a copy of VI, beat it and I'll have finished all of them and completed my list. Which may scare some of you.
*Sigh*, better save up, search my town and, if l don't find it, browse eBay and hope the prices for used cartridges (scrooge fucks) haven't gone up and that the seller doesn't screw me over and not send me the game or a broken game.

Exactly. Organics give you the multiplier bonuses and metals give you the EXP.

I agree, though I sold basically everything but the items I listed, Bomb Cores/Shells and those extremely expensive and rare components.

Yeah. But doing enough Faultwarren runs will net you a bunch of those. But they aren't the best for getting EXP but are probably the easiest so late in the game.

I've yet to play XII but XIII plot and characters are pretty laughable aside from some parts. God I hate Hope but he's the best leader/character in the game. Battle system is a plus, quite fun.

It's so damn slow and you never know when you're underleveled.

I disagree with you 100% on the soundtrack. It's glorious IMO even though some of the voiced songs aren't the best it's still one of my favorite OSTs in the FF franchise. Oberas theme? OH MY FUCKING GOD. That song is like crack and so is Will to Fight. There are so many good songs in XIII that I can't possibly list them all.

The party leader dieing = game over is horse shit. I mean you can have the other two members full health and the game ends? Fuck that's retarded. Sometimes the enemies/bosses go right after the leader and don't give up unless you sentinel intimidate them. Does it make the game hard? No. Challenging? Possibly. I do like they crystarium system for the fact that it's similar to Xs. All characters can learn everything(for the most part)but then they have their strengths and weaknesses.

For example: Snow is the worst medic but the best sentinel while Hope is the best medic but the worst commando.

Also, the lack of sidequests (the only one was a poor man's version of XII's awesome hunting sidequest) was disappointing. And last, but not least, I hated the weapon upgrading stuff. It takes so many stuff and time and gil to improve them so little. No FF should EVER have weapon upgrading (and yeah, I hated Customization in X as well), just give us normal weapons. No need for a project like those.

The sidequests are more so the mark missions in this one. Granted I do agree with you. HA! I'm sure you've seen what all goes into getting just one weapon maxed out? If not check it out, then do that x6 and you'll have the trophy/achievement for doing so.

XII was worse, but not the most pathetically weak of all time. Once again, I state: they were better in XIII and thus got some respect from me.

OK, Will to Fight and Oerba are amazing tracks, and so are a few other ones, but the lyrics really got me about this one, ESPECIALLY THE CHOCOBO SONG. Also some of the other tracks were kinda...unfitting, such as the Yachas Massif`s music. It`s like some fancy restaurants`s music. IMO the track on this one could`ve been better.

Alright, I overdid on this one a little. While itdoesn`t make the game THAT HARD, it still is harder than it should be for a wrong reason. And again, I hate the Sphere Grid and any of it's other versions, Crystarium included.

I'm STILL waiting Square to do two particular sidequests I have in mind.
And by the way, I got the trophy.

There is a version of the chocobos song that doesn't have the lyrics but I think it's only on the released OST or something like that. Yachas Massifs music wasn't the best but I liked it. Just think of the enemies as the food and your party as the dinnerware. All you gotta do is eat them for the CP and items. ;)

Alright, I overdid on this one a little. While itdoesn`t make the game THAT HARD, it still is harder than it should be for a wrong reason. And again, I hate the Sphere Grid and any of it's other versions, Crystarium included.

Why do you hate the sphere grid and crystarium system so much though? The idea of everyone being semi-equals is that bad? I am confused.

What might those be?

And by the way, I got the trophy.

Ah titties! How did you go about getting that one other than mass amounts of grinding with in grinding?

That too. I like that each characterhas their own stats, jobs and pretty much be unique when it comes to fighting. Another thing l dislike is that it's slow; the amount you improve from every node you light up is barely noticeable except in the beggining, thus needing excessive training to improve (at least that`s how I feel). Also, there`s the thing: you never know if you`re underleveled, overleveled, or just right for a challenge.

What might those be?

Eh...nevermind. Just some stupid shit that will probably never happen.

Ah titties! How did you go about getting that one other than mass amounts of grinding with in grinding?

Final Fantasy games are one of my excuses for not having a life 4 days a week.
But lucky Bomb Core/components drops I guess.

I only played VI for like 5 minutes at my friends but I've heard a lot of people say it was their favourite so Ive just started it properly

Damn, two new members in a day? Quite impressive considering this thread was stale for a week or so.
Anyway, I beat the Lunar Ruins, Brachiorados (fuck you asshole) and Zeromus EG. It was all pretty awesome, and I really enjoyed Kain's trial.
Currently replaying V so I can finish eveything I skipped, which was a lot (for starters I didn't get a single Blue Magic), and once that's done, searching for VI is the next thing in line.
And I look foward to that.

Oh and by the way, I guess I've never posted my list. Here it goes (it may scare some of you, but I have some reasons):

IX, VII, XII (WTF numero uno), IV, V, VIII, XIII (I thought about this one's rank and put it a place higher), I, III, X (you heard me. But I have solid reasons and it's my opinion guise) and II.
VI will probably be in the top three so stuff will change.

Seeing how I'm an avid fan of FF I'll list my top games.

1. Final Fantasy XII. Loved it through and through, and I especially loved the overall freedom, scope, and intricate storyline this game had, and the motif of the separation of church and state, the will of the people, nationalism and imperialism make this game one of my most treasured. Hate all you want, but I really like the different method of gameplay and the different direction of character development this game had. Basch was intended to be the main character, and the story revolves mostly around him and Ashe, so I often think of him as the protagonist.

Turn 18, replay the game. Take some notes. Reflect.

2. Final Fantasy X. Music, story, characters, this game had it all, and is the most likely candidate for a movie.

3. Final Fantasy Tactics. Damn...this game is hard, but the story shakes the foundation of the truthfullness of government, the church, and who truly is working for the will of the people, rather than for selfish gain. In addition, the game is extremely expansive, and can take up 100s of hours depending on how you play.

4. Final Fantasy VI. The characters and music were the main selling point of this masterpiece. While the story was good and the settings had their own flare, Uematsu breathed life into this game, and the characters followed suit.

5. Final Fantasy IX, this FF is probably the only to have actually have made me laugh. The unique characters, the whimsical feeling of the towns/cities, and the balance between exploration and hallway roaming make this the bottom, while definitely not the worst, Final fantasy on my Top 5.

As for least favorite? Final Fantasy 8. The junction system killed the battle system, the ooey gooey lovey dovey angsty wangsty plotline made this seem like a daytime soap opera with guns on crack. In addition, I fail to see how a Jet Li wannabe and a daisy-picking whip-lasher graduated above someone as kickass as Seifer. Albeit that, FF8 wins for most epic intro.


I put the BS in BBS.

Also I just checked eBay for FFVI, and the only ones that will ship internationally cost 45,00 (90,00 for me). Oh well, I'll auction it. Just hope I don't get beaten to it.
