Iíve seen a number of people post about how they thought FFX sucked. I donít get it. I really enjoyed it.

What did or didn't you like about it? Characters? Weapons? Areas? Bosses?

I actually played it twice when I realized I wasnít really training right. Mainly because of Khimari. He can train into everyone elses training so I skimmed Rikaru for stealing, Luna for black magic, then went into Yunaís advanced training for the rest of the game picking up protect, shell, curaga, and holy. He didnít hit very hard, but had massive hp and mp and really helped as an all around utility char.

Anyway, discuss.

It was very, very, very linear.

Rikku, Lulu, and Kimahri.

I didn't like it because Yuna had the personality of a piece of cardboard. Blitzball is awesome though.

I thought everyone could train in everyone elses abilities anyway?

I alternated each character in every fight but my hardest definately were Auron, Tidus and Lulu.

Doh, I butcherd the hell out of the names. LOL. Yeah, Yuna was the most bland.

Blitzball is awesome. Game within a game.

Another aspect I totally dug was Rikkuís Mix and customization. I had Rikku, Kimahri AND Yuna learn steal. Some fights would just be steal fests. And always always steal ing from bosses.

Mine were Wakka, Auron and Lulu for all out damagefests. With doublecast, Lulu hit harder than anyone other than an aeon.

I liked Lulu with doublecast, but as soon as I was able to move her into Yuna's sphere and vice versa I used the two interchangeably.

I stopped using Kimahri pretty early on because in my opinion he just isn't as good as the rest of them.

I liked Auron, but he was SO SLOW I ended up using Tidus more often.

And... Rikku is my favorite because she's teh hotness. And her mix ability was definitely neat.

I thought it sucked, and here's why:

1. The sphere system sucked ass.
2. The characters (with the exception of Auron) were stupid. Tidus was a whiney bitch. Khimari was a pussy. Rikku was just annoying as hell. Wakka was also annoying as hell. Yuna: see the previous two character notes. Lulu I guess I didn't have a problem with.
3. The game was too easy. It was the easiest final fantasy that I've ever played.
4. The story was dumb.

I had a ton of fun with ff9. Ff8 had the best story (in my opinion), I just hated the junctioning shit in that game, and the item system sucked. I like finding lots of new items and stuff, not using the same sword almost the entire game. Overall, I think ff7 was the best that I've ever played; good story, good characters, and a good item/magic system.

Anyone who thinks FFX was easy obviously didn't fight the Dark Aeon sisters.

If you thought FF8 had the best storyline, seek help. Now.

They don't sound familiar. Then again, I didn't have the strategy guide, so I wasn't privy to all the little side quests and stuff. I did clear out the dungeon with the Ultimate Weapon (or was it just called Ultima?) or whatever. That was the hardest part of the game for me. The bosses were pushovers.

Pfft, I liked it. Squall was the man.

Each Aeon in the game, with I think the exception of Yojimbo has a dark aeon equivilent, which are fucking hard. Each requires the break HP limits for damage and hp for everyone in your team. Without them they're impossible.

Uhh, I donít remember anything like Dark Magus Sisters. Never heard of a break damage limit. Crap, there is so much to this game it isn't even funny.

Before going into Sin at the end, when you have free control of the Airship, you can revisit each temple and fight the Dark Aeons.

Well, Iíve been doing that actually. Running the entire length of the world looking for the Al Bhed volumes so I could read the codes to input on the airship. Finding an amazing amount of extra stuff and raising skills. But I havenít run into any dark aeons. Yet.

Head back to each temple. You should encounter one or two there.

How about uh, X-2?

That game is designed for girls.

X-2 sucked. The only thing good about it is Rikku's starting outfit. :heart:

I still like FF1 and 6 better than the rest... even if 1's ending made you feel like you didn't accomplish shit(FF1)... I liked 10 like I do any other FF, except when they were forcing out laughs.. I think some of my fav chars were from tactics though. Auron rocked in x, he was always cool about everything. The al'bhed eyes rocked too...

FFVIII and X2 sucked balls.
FFIII and Nine were my favorites.
2,7, and 10 were all equally as good.

Awesome throw back to Final Fantasy II (IV).. I love it.
