30 Days of Final Fantasy

by April 23, 2011 17 comments

For the past several days, we here on the TLS forum have been taking part in a fun little exercise called the 30 Days of Final Fantasy. The idea is that you talk about one FF-related topic a day for 30 days. These are the topics for each day:

Day 01 – Your favourite FF game!
Day 02 – Your least favourite Final Fantasy game.
Day 03 – Your favourite Final Fantasy theme/song.
Day 04 – Your favourite Final Fantasy party from your favourite game.
Day 05 – Your favourite Final Fantasy City/Town.
Day 06 – Favourite part of your favourite Final Fantasy game.
Day 07 – Least favourite part of your favourite Final Fantasy game.
Day 08 – Favourite Chocobo Version.
Day 09 – Favourite Moogle Version.
Day 10 – Best Final Fantasy scene ever.
Day 11 – Final Fantasy game that disappointed you.
Day 12 – Final Fantasy game you’ve played more than 5 times.
Day 13 – Your favourite version of Cid.
Day 14 – Favourite Final Fantasy male character.
Day 15 – Favourite Final Fantasy female character.
Day 16 – Your favourite Final Fantasy limit break.
Day 17 – Favourite Final Fantasy mini game.
Day 18 – Favourite Final Fantasy opening sequence.
Day 19 – Best Final Fantasy outfit.
Day 20 – Best Final Fantasy hair.
Day 21 – Favourite Final Fantasy pairing/ship.
Day 22 – Favourite Final Fantasy summon.
Day 23 – Least Favourite Final Fantasy mini game.
Day 24 – Best Final Fantasy quote.
Day 25 – Final Fantasy game you plan on playing (old or new).
Day 26 – OMG WTF? Final Fantasy moment.
Day 27 – Best Final Fantasy storyline.
Day 28 – First Final Fantasy game obsession.
Day 29 – Current Final Fantasy game obsession.
Day 30 – Saddest Final Fantasy character death.

I got the idea to post about it from LiveJournal user Xi-Feng, who got the idea from LJ user toffeethesnob, who got the idea from LJ user Korynth, who got the idea from LJ user wheatcakes.

(Sheesh! I hope that’s all the credits where credit is due.)

Anywho, it’s been a lot of fun, and I’m making this frontpage post to invite more of you to get in on it. It’s not too late to take part, as it’s only up to Day 06 on the forum right now (I myself am only up to Day 05, as I started a day later than everybody else).

So, come join us. =) Share your favorites, your least favorites, your disappointments, and the Final Fantasy moments that inspired you, made you cry, or that you’ll never forget for whatever other reasons.

    I’m not doing every day, but I have to say that for day 30 it’s Zack Fair. Without a doubt.

      No arguing that one. I had never cried while watching a character death in any video game or show or anything until I played Crisis Core. I seriously cried the whole scene, especially when Zack passed on the Buster Sword and Cloud’s scream at the end really put me over the edge. TT_TT

    Indeed! Zack’s death made me cry! because crisis core put so much in that scene.

    My least favorite game would have to be ff11 or 14… they never should have made a final fantasy installment online!

    Day 3 has got to be Tifa’s theme. Although I like several more from ff9, too. Cloud smiles is awesome, as well, but Tifa’s theme really is my favorite.

    Best Final Fantasy scene ever.

    FFXII ending moment.

    Balthier: Princess, no need to worry. I hope you haven’t forgotten my role in this little story, I’m the leading man. You know what they said about the leading man, he never dies.

    ((I started on May 1st~))

    Day 1: Final Fantasy VII for sure, no question.
    Day 2: I wasn’t a big fan of Final Fantasy VI.
    Day 3: Why by Ayaka. It moves me everytime I hear it.
    Day 4: Cloud, Vincent, and Cid.
    Day 5: Palumpolum. One of my favorite Final Fantasy characters is from here…plus the name is just so fun to say~
    Day 6: When Zack and Cloud met for the first time, cause I’m a sucker for those kind of scenes. Plus, it’s when my favorite two characters met! <3

      Day 7: I have a few least favorite parts of Final Fantasy VII, but I’d have to say the one that tops all is when Sephiroth killed Aerith. Mostly for the damage it did to the group and to Cloud. But I have to admit that I don’t totally hate Aerith, plus she didn’t deserve to die.

    I recently purchased a 1991 RED Chevy Lumina Z34 with an upgraded Bose system, 95k miles on it (thats under 5k miles a year!).

    Anyways it came with a stock radio (remember it’s a 91… not even a cd player in it). I’ma 2k kid I don’t even know what the hell a casette player is.

    After a week of driving it… I only have ONE speaker bumping, so I took it in to these dudes ^^. They threw a new deck in, re ran all my wires; it was cleaaan!

    But…. IT WASN’T ENOUGH! I love bass, to the point where it feels like I’m getting kicked in the back of the head by a sound ghost.

    So… They threw a few kickers in the trunk and BAAM BOOM YAbba dabba DOO.
