A.Logan Posted August 22, 2005 Report Share Posted August 22, 2005 Okay, to be honest, I wasn't a fan of RPGs for a long time. My friends played them and frankly, I was just apathetic to it all. I felt like I wasn't doing anything really, just a bunch of random shit. In the 7th and 8th grade, however, I started trying out different games (Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill became quick favorites), and late 8th grade year, I went to Hollywood Video (the same one that employs me, btw) and got Final Fantasy IX. I figured it would be cool, seeing as it had 8 other games, it had to be doing something right. I played, and from the beginning, was hooked. The characters had something that drew me in, mostly Tantalus, because I could have sworn that Tantalus was based on our group of friends, down to a tee. The story, I started off kind of meh, but as soon as I got to Evil Forest, I was in it for the long haul, naming characters after friends, family, pets, you know. But this game was the one that made me go back and play the others on Playstation, and even further back, I've played through all of them (minus V, dammit) and of all of them I only keep playing IX. X was on it's way to being another game like IX, because until my PS2 went kaput, I was on my 6th run. I'm currently on my 12th run through IX, 2nd through VIII, I don't have VII anymore, and the rest I went through once, and never again. I need some perspective here, which games do you like the best from the series, and which ones do you hate? Who marks hard for what game? What feature? Characters that stand out? Let's have a discussion. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
