Default The 5th Anniversary of The 25th Anniversary Thread of Appreciating Final Fantasy

NEW THREAD
ERASE THE PAST AND EMBRACE THE FUTURE

revel in the beautiful thread name until a mod changes it to something sensible

final fantasy 13 is the best final fantasy, and final fantasy 7 is new again

what a world we live in


I really just wanted a Final Fantasy thread to start with a proclamation that Final Fantasy 13 is the best. I mean, that's a lie, honestly. 14's the best. Maybe 2? Whichever one is the best, it's definitely not your favorite Final Fantasy, that's for sure. You have awful taste.

check out this picture of the newest Final Fantasy game:



It looks pretty good. I'll probably like this game, unless it introduces weird Genesis stuff. Hell, I'll probably like it anyway. Cloud, Tifa, Aerigo, Barret, Red XIII, those... other guys... are all great characters.

I hope Sephiroth doesn't actually have a black wing sprouting out of his back in the remake. That's already introducing weird Genesis stuff.

I'm fine with it for promotional stuff. It further emphasizes that the real plot of Sephiroth is casting a shadow over the fake-out plot of Shinra. Also, it allows Cloud and Sephiroth to have a similar amount of image space. I would also be fine with seeing it during the crazy "wait sephiroth is superman?" sections, like when he flies away on the boat.

And let's not forget he had the black wing (among many other wings) in his penultimate boss fight where he's some monster angel thing.

Agreed. Square Enix, it's Biggs and Wedge, not Adam and Steve.

I hope there's a side quest where you go down into the secret giant underground city beneath Midgar with all the wacky super soldiers

However, THIS is not a photoshop:



"I, Cup Noodle, Will Knock You All Down!" - Ramen Meets "Final Fantasy" in 30th Anniversary Celebration

Official site here: https://store.nissin.com/jp/feature/finalfantasy30th/ Spoiler warning: cups of instant ramen may contain the identity of the end bosses of FF games.

For everyone who loved Final Fantasy XV's product placement, I guess?

Except for 9, 10, and 12, which instead display the second-last boss.

oops, spoilers

The fact that the old FF thread is 5 years old makes me feel SIGNIFICANTLY older than the fact that FF itself is 30 years old.

I know, right? I've been yelling awful opinions about Final Fantasy at you guys for the past SIX YEEEEEAAAAAARS. Well, five years. I must have been yelling other opinions before then.

The hungrier you are, the smaller the fork is.

So make sure to eat plenty of Cup Noodle!

That fork is super limited edition and that makes me sad because I would absolutely spend like 50 bucks to own one of those things

I can say with utmost sincerity that I would PAY to see someone swordfight using this against a baguette.

Oh man, I want one!

Also, can we talk for a minute about how hard Arby's is pushing Final Fantasy advertising? There's that sandwich with a Buster Sword lodged in it today, and a papercraft chocobo from a while back. What is UP with that?
