Where did you even get stuck at in 7? I don't even know where anyone could get stuck until you really hit the end of the game or something.

I was in an area where there was a boss fight to get out and was low on health and had no potions or mana or whatever it was you used to heal back then. Couldn't win that fight in the condition I was in and couldn't change my condition. I said **** it and never played it again.

Both of them were great. I don't understand why they don't continue to have stuff like that.

I honestly though FFX perfected how a turn based battle system should work. Being able to switch out weapons and armor and even other characters mid battle, and you won't even lose a turn if you switch out a character. But nope, they forgot about that and made XII... ugh.

You really should go back and play VI. Kefka is one of my all time favorite villains. The game is masterfully done.

Blitzball was amazing. My friend had played it so much, that he woke in the middle of the night in a mad rush thinking he was late for a Blitzball game.

Sadly I never played VIII because my friend told me the monsters level with you, and at that time I just found that dumb. I did get to play the card game in IX, which was so sidetracking I never finished the game. I would play roughly 6hrs of straight cards, then lose one of the unique cards you can get only once, and then quit playing for a few months.

I kind of like not being able to switch out characters. FF games had gotten so easy they were starting to get boring. Not being able to start out with one character leveled up with all the debuffs and almost immediately switching him out for someone leveled up exclusively for physical damage makes it a bit of a challenge. A lot of the stuff I'm fighting now doesn't let me spend too much time buffing or debuffing, so I kind of have to plan when I'm going to sneak a few of those in and how much is worth it. Past games started off every tough battle with casting every single one you had in your arsenal. Boring.

edit: Kimi, totally agree about the bosses leveling in VIII. While it was nice that I didn't have to wander around power leveling (I hate that), it was also silly that you could be as weak as you wanted and still take them on. I thought VIII was a solid RPG, but it was kind of vanilla in its gameplay and I didn't think anything made it set apart.

Eh, in XIII I had to power level for a good amount of time to beat on of the summons (the one after you get out of the cave). That was a ****** time. XIII is a pretty fun game though. Wont lie. Gotta beat that sometime. Kinda left it hanging right near the end. Now I got that, Star Ocean, and Two Worlds II to beat....****.

While talking about FF. I think some will agree with me the best song in any FF game has to be the Zanarkand theme.

That maybe one of the best songs, but this Kefka's music is the most memorable

I am a Massive FF nerd. Ive played and beaten most of them. 13 is garbage, and I feel bad for you if you actually think that is entertaining. Im getting the meteor logo from 7 tattooed on me soon.

SKYRIM!

I have never played FF X-2 but isn't that supposed to be the worst out of the series? The victory fanfare for X-2 also sucks.

There was something about it I liked enough to go like ten hours into it, but nothing to keep me going beyond that. It's the only one I got bored with and just flat out quit.

FFX-2 I still don't think is as bad as XII. But man, Killzone 3 is INTENSE.

I really like what they did with the controls/movement. Probably need to play around with the sensitivity a bit. I'm also so used to aim-assist right now, that I'm swinging around wildly in gunfights. Warzone definitely has the more competitive players on the whole.

I agree. 13 was pretty bad. The last few have been IMO. 7, 8, and 9 are my faves. FFVII is the best game ever made, hands down. Nothing will ever compare to it in my book.

On another note, I was playing my BEaGM mode in NHL11 the other day and I have Jodrin Tootoo playing on my 4th line (I did a draft) and I kept trying to fight Sidney Crosby with him. Actually worked and I got to beat him up. After the game noticed that he would be out for 4-5 weeks. It was very fulfilling.

FF13 isn't bad, but it doesn't hold a candle to some of the classics in the series.

I couldn't stand 13. Being on the PS3 it had so much potential to be truly epic, instead it was just garbage. For most of the game all you can do is walk in a straight line and it tells you where to go. The last few have been similar. They need to get back to the older versions and have expansive maps and towns and so forth.

Call me crazy, but I don't find wandering aimlessly around expansive maps to be all that fun.
