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.

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.

Oh yeah? I'll give you some real spoilers! The entirety of Final Fantasy 7 is just Yuffie's dying delusions about the group of thugs that murdered her in a forest. That's why there are so many spelling mistakes and contradictions - Yuffie's a dumbass.

seriously though i'm about to play the fan retranslation of ff7

wish me luck

hopefully this is more Mother 3 and less Brave New World

I have to say: I love the lighting and composition. There's something melancholy but peaceful about an empty Arby's at the crack of dawn, a sandwich mysteriously impaled by the tiny replica of a huge sword. Is this how a tiny Cloud begins his day? Did he hoist a sandwich larger than his torso onto the table and, exhausted, stabbed his sword into it as he retreated to take a breather? Is it normal for Arby's to see RPG characters come in for a meal, as though they were regular Joes and Janes unafraid to mingle with the common folk? Does Cloud quietly ponder upon the road ahead as he feeds his body thin slices of chicken and tomato?

Also: they also managed to make Arby's look tasty!

I only realized the Arby's thing is supposed to be the title screen because I started a new game today.

So I know people have had a bit to play XV, so where does the game fall in their ranking of mainline FF games? Only like on chapter 6 of it myself, so not quite ready to make that judgement myself, but curious if people are ready to make that judgement yet.

And hell, the thread is still early. So lets get everyones top 15 mainline FF games!

I've only played 2.5 hours of FFXV (not counting an unfortunate experience with the tutorial) and... I'll still give it a chance to click with me, because so far it's been both boring (plotwise) and counterintuitive (in gameplay). The few battles I've had were chaotic disasters, and lock-on and Warp Hangs are nearly impossible for me to pull off.

I did love the arcade pinball and I spent about half an hour on that, though! I'd honestly pay good money to see it on Google Play.

It sort of is already.

I honestly wasn't impressed with it the little bit I played.
