    Not So Final Final Boss Fights (Inevitable Spoilers)

    (Initial post is going to contain spoilers for Final Fantasy 6, Final Fantasy 7, and extremely light spoilers for FF7 Remake) I was having a discussion with a friend recently where we were debating the merits of fighting a final boss as only a final boss. The impetus for this discussion was...

    Final Fantasy - Your favourite moments

    I still need to collect my thoughts on XIII before making a big post about this, but considering how many people here love this series, or at least parts of it, I was wondering about favorite moments. I mean specific parts that have a special place for you. Battle of the Big Bridge is an easy...

    Final Fantasy and RPG Role Design: Comparing Final Fantasy 9, 12, and 13

    A thing that is fascinating to me in design terms is that liking FF12 is not a good indicator of liking FF13. A big part of it is structural, obviously. But if we look at just the mechanics, FF13 is so clearly a logical extension of the previous game's mechanics in a way FF rarely ever is. FF12...

    FF6 (our third finalest fantasy)

    It has breached Final Fantasy Mega Thread containment... I've been replaying Final Fantasy 6 as part of the pixel remaster, and I'm amazed at how much I am enjoying the experience. Final Fantasy 3 (FF6j) has always been my second most favorite RPG of the 16-bit era, but as a result of being...

    Digital Down-Low for 04/21/2023: If it’s “Final” why are there 6 remasters?

    Folks… this might be the single most wallet-damaging DDL thread I’ve ever posted. Except maybe the one when the Switch itself was launched. Might want to consider robbing some stage coaches or starting an illegal casino to earn some extra scratch. Throwing fistfuls of live ants into your back...

    Final Fantasy enemies - can't have a fighing fantasy without some foes

    So from the first Final Fantasy your forces have faced frequent fights with fearsome foes. So what are some of you favorite enemies/monsters from the Final Fantasy series?

    Final Fantasy fight "prizes" - bliss after battle

    In Final Fantasy games you will always randomly encounter someone or something that is trying to prevent you from reaching your goals. You are rarely ever given any choice for dealing with the situation other than to fight or flee. If you fight and win you are able to continue on your journey...

    Final Fantasy equipment - not everyone can be a monk

    Getting and using different gear has often been a large part of the game play in Final Fantasy games. So what are your favorite Final Fantasy weapons and non-weapon equipment? (These don't necessarily have to be the most powerful or final items in the game.)

    Final Fantasy - don't forget about the 2nd part of the title

    I can't remember if we ever discussed this on TT 2 but even if we have that's never stopped us from doing it again here. So there has always been that mix in the Final Fantasy games but the balance of that mix has changed from title to title. So which Final Fantasy is the most fantastic i.e...

    Final Fantasy - familiar faces and more

    No "main number" Final Fantasy game has ever been a direct sequel to the previous game but games in the series have included many different recurring elements throughout the years. So what are some of your favorite recurring elements from the series?

    Forceful Final Fantasy

    Combat is an integral part of Final Fantasy games. Usually the characters start with some combat ability/strength but not an incredible amount - it's usually just enough to face the weak enemies that first appear. However that strength tends to grow through the course of the game until you can...

    Final Fantasy - feeling blue (magic)

    As you can see - the Blue Mage character class is one of our favorite Final Fantasy classes. I think it's easy to see why since it provides for an interesting approach to a magic-using character - both conceptually and mechanically. So what are some of your favorite Blue Magic spells?

    Final Fantasy - a question of character

    The first Final Fantasy game did not have unique designs for playable characters since you could give the same class to multiple party members. The second game changed things up by giving each distinct playable character their own design. Every game since then has usually used one of those two...

    Final Fantasy Effects (sound that is)

    The Final Fantasy series has iconic music - but what about the other part of the sound experience provided by the games? What are some of your favorite sound effects from the games?

    Final Fantasy summons - Carbuncle, I choose you!

    Summoned monsters did not appear in the first 2 Famicom FF games but were introduced in the 3rd and final one. They were also added to the first entry of the series on Super Famicom / NES and have been a staple of the series since then. They just provide so much character and personality to the...

    Final Fantasy jobs and classes - preparing for the final interview / exam

    So currently there is a Top 21 list for Numbered Final Fantasy games being ran by Positronic Brain. As companions to that list I will be creating some Final Fantasy discussion threads that I have been wanting to create since TT 2.0 . This is the first of those threads. Now a job, class or job...

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

    Obviously the title is to put tension on Aerith's death or... maybe not death?!?! Though of course it has a lot of other possible meanings. I think the biggest surprise of Remake is that I'm kind of hoping they don't kill her. Aerith is the best character in Remake by a mile and I'll be...

    The Yearly Four Job Fiesta, now with Remastered Pixels!

    So this is the first Four Job Fiesta since the release of the FF5 Pixel Remaster, who's playin'? Seems like there's a new Rule, Team 375. If you can do math then you'd know that's half of 750, which basically means instead of the All 750 jobs rule or the No 750 jobs rule this one will give you...

    I will knock Chaos all down - Final Fantasy: Stranger of Paradise

    Final Fantasy: Stranger of Paradise is releasing this week, and I figure it should have its own thread as it will likely be the dominant Final Fantasy discussion for a solid six hours or so. Let's follow the fabulous adventures of Jack Garland and his band of lifelong friends that he just met...
