4: Depends if you mean plot or storytelling. For example, FFX has a really silly plot but it's incredibly well told. Whereas FFXV has a really good plot, that's told by a schizophrenic amnesiac.
FF6 does fairly well on both categories, so I'll go with that.

5. FF7 is the boring answer but can't think of any alternative really. That Cid has the most impact on the main story, as well as being a really cool character in battles.

I could not find this thread for a minute because I was rendered confused by my own silly name and profile pic, I thought you should know. I was bugging tf out...

Day 6.


Which FF universe would you live in and why? What would you be doing there and how do you think you'd live?

I wanna live in XII's Ivalice, up on Bhujerba. Probably I'd work either as a market stall person or maybe in a tavern behind the bar, but I'd have my own little airship so I could spend my weekends/time off in the sky, just diving off the edge and into the clouds yes please.

FF9 because there are 5 big and interesting towns/cities on the same continent, all of which are very different. You could travel between them by airship every few months if you wanted a change of scenery. Obviously pre-invasion of Burmecia and Cleyra.

How would I live? I'd become a Dragoon Knight, purely because I want to know where they disappear to when they use the "Jump" command. Do they sit on a cloud or something?

Probably FFX enjoying being able to explore the ocean without drowning and salvaging old tech to save summoners from throwing their lives away. Also it seems that even mt gagazet is fine to traverse while in shorts :P

It's so interesting to hear these positive things regarding FFXIII in terms of story as I've only heard all the bad things regarding gameplay and something about impossibly long dungeons I think :P I took the notion of the story for granted...
Only one way to find out!

Day 5: Cid Fabool IX. Most complete character, without that much screentime.

Day 6: FFIX seems relatively safe, as long as you live above the Mist. Think I'd be farming in Dali.

Day 6: Whatever FF world it was where my chances of survival are greatest. I'll go with FF9, sure. What would I do? Probably attempt selling artworks at Treno's auctions. How I would live would probably greatly depend on the money I get for that. Maybe I'd be an actor or musician otherwise, but would try not to get the attention of any psychotic royals.

Grimoire from World of Final Fantasy.

It's a mix of all great things and places of Final Fantasy. I can also be a mirage keeper, which means capturing my own hoard of Final Fantasy summons and enemies to power myself up and use at my leisure. I could finally have a pet Malboro all my own and ride it wherever I go, and wage biological warfare on anyone and everyone who tried to give me shit.

Or, I'd have a Mecha Chocobo to ride and go to any place I see fit, while raining death and destruction on my enemies.

Or even...An Ahriman. Those floating one-eyed monsters totally remind me of Mike Wazowski and are fucking awesome. Those fuckers can hurl curses and confuse enemies wonderfully and they're so ugly and freaky they end up looking adorable if you stare at them hard enough. I could ride ontop of one or let their lesser evolution ride on my head...

The only danger would be... The hoards of mirages and Cogna that would be there but hey. That's why you catch them. And considering Grimoire houses Champions such as Cloud, Squall, Lightning, Tidus, Terra, Bartz etc... Whatever might threaten it would probably end up getting beaten back pretty quickly. Bahamutian Federation assholes might be a problem but hey. That's again, why you fight them with your mirages and not yourself. :mon:

Any world that let's you visit the Library of the Ancients, Midgar, Figaro Castle, Balamb Garden and Cornelia in the same world is a winner, hands down.

VIII's world gets special mention because it seems the safest and least fucking insane.

Aside from the Moon occasionally shitting monsters onto the Earth (thanks in part to a nutbag Sorceress who wanted to weaponize the Lunar Cry), the world of FFVIII is relatively normal and analogous to the real world in its function, while also not completely being a threat to human life. Aside from the crazy Sorceress who tried to conquer the world and then fold all of space-time into a singularity within herself, the world was relatively peaceful and orderly. It's beautiful, diverse, friendly and hey... Being a SeeD mercenary pays pretty fucking well and lets you even keep your own pet Guardian Force!

As cool as most of the worlds of FF are, they're... Pretty fucking horrifyingly dangerous.

FFVII's world is dead fucking last. I would never want to live in that world. Between Meteorfall, Geostigma, and groups of humans being rounded up and melted into pools of Lifestream... Yeah no.

I almost said FFXV's world but then I remembered the bullshit with the Nifelheim Empire, Starscourge, and god forbid I lived during the 10 years of eternal fucking night. Yeah, no thank you. I love Insomnia and think it would be an awesome city to live in buuuuuuuut we saw what happened to that place :mon:

FFXIII's world is second to last. It's a world where the main creator deity is fucking batshit insane, and his lesser gods actively hate you and want to use you up until you're a crystal zombie.

Sooooo yeah.

Grimoire it is. At least Enna Kros seems like a somewhat nice, if hands-off kinda god.

Lindblum’s theatre district, post-game. Preferably born post-game so that nobody I know gets eternally interred by that Shimmering Islands bullhockey. I’d be an actor with Tetra Master as my main hobby and if I ever picked up the adventuring life I’d probably be a red mage helping to clear the basins of any remaining monsters. I’d participate in but probably never win the Festival of the Hunt. Annual trips to Alexandria are a must, and Treno for the tournament of course. Would love my own ship but if I’m an actor that probably isn’t feasible :P That’s okay I’ll bring a book for the South Gate cable car.

XII's Ivalice, it's a dangerous world as any other but commercial airship travel does exist that takes you right over the roaming monsters and it's villians want to control the area, not end the world or make fundamental change to reality. It's not great but it's livable.

Then the Cataclysm hits and everyone dies :mon:

And those that don't get thrown into the Dark Ages.

I almost chose that as my answer but the earth rending cataclysm that basically kills all the people, fun and technological progress of the world and turns it into the Ivalice of FF Tactics and Vagrant Story just has me go... "Naaaah..." lol

It's all fun and games until a Jagd opens up under your feet!

I'd take Tactics's Ivalice over Ultimecia's world which is what the future of FFVIII has in store for it.

There isn't really a final fantasy world where there isn't some apocalyptic end in sight though is there?
Yeah but it's often some kind of impending doom for the whole world, that's gonna happen at some point in the future.
Whereas Sin is a permanent fixture. There is no point where it's not happening. Until they kill the tick.

Least I could get a tan while I wait to die
Don't give me that shit, you're Scottish, you're allergic to sunshine. :monster:
I'd go for FFVII because I'm most familiar with it. Cosmo Canyon is appealing but I'm not sure I'd want to live there 'cos of the lack of greenery, but then the ancient forest isn't that far away. Bone village is also weirdly appealing, lol.

Ok then so I'd burn to death before I was killed by sin!
