Lol, I ignored Chocobo Hot N Cold because I got annoyed with the clues... EVERYTHING ON THE MAP LOOKS THE SAME. But that's what the internet is for! Cheating!

I really adored the characters, and all the extra stuff there is to do in the game... and also, I actually ENJOYED playing the cards. I still need five more... then I will have ... THEM ALL.

on that note, favorite characters everyone? Personally I feel like Vivi is going to get enough votes, so I'll cast mine for Freya- viking name, she's a dragoon, and she's ssooo sad (d'aww) all in all, awesomeness

While I do love all Dragoons as a rule, Vivi still gets it. He is probably my favorite character in the whole of Final Fantasy. Even though IX floats around 3rd place on my list of FFs, it does have the best character.

Won't be downloading the game onto my PS3 from PSN (or anywhere else for that matter). Its one of my favourite FFs, but I've seriously completed it that many times I don't want to play it again (which can be said for the other FFs as well). As for favourite character, it would've been Steiner had his amusing antics kept up all the way through the game. Otherwise, its got to be the transvestite, Kuja, just because he is the bad guy and all the versions of his theme song are awesome; Immoral Melody and Millenium especially, though I'm not a big fan of Dark Messenger, and I find the composition of Kuja 5 intriguing. I'm not sure if they're the actual titles of the song, I'm just getting this from youtube =P.

All of Kuja's themes are awesome. Kuja 5 is one of the best.

My favourite characters are probably Vivi, Freya, Beatrix, and Kuja. I wish we'd seen more of Lani; she had potential but disappeared way too early.

I love Garnet and Vivi. Beatrix, Freya, Kuja and Zidane are up there as well. In fact, I don't think there's a character I don't love. FFIX has one of the best casts imo.

Kuja and Vivi.

The first is one of my three favourite characters of all time and the second one is my favourite team member of the entire FF saga.

I really adore Garnet, but my favorite character in FFIX is Freya. She is amazing, and I too have a soft spot for Dragoons. XD Nomnomnom. And of course, Kuja is high up there. I really love Zidane as well... DAMNIT WHY ARE ALL OF IX'S CHARACTERS FUCKING AWESOME

That's true about IX's cast, though. There is a very refreshing lack of the ubiquitous annoying bubbly animu chick. There's Eiko, but she's not really like that. Not like Selphie, Rikku, Penelo, Vanille, anyway.
Don't like Quina, but that's largely because I don't like Blue Mages in general.

I'd say only the Millennium Version and Immoral Melody are, and even then it's only because of the drums. It also reminds me of one of the tracks from FFV. Intension of the Earth maybe? I can't remember.

I disliked Dagger on my first playthrough and now she's one of my favorite FF females. ;o; But I also loved Zidane and Kuja a lot -- I think Kuja's still my favorite antagonist. And who doesn't love Vivi?

argh okay i sort of love everyone too. except maybe amarant.

Also the music in this game was amazing. I forgot the name of it, but Beatrix's theme was one of my favorites.

Loss of Me (or Rose of May depending on which translation you believe). There's a reprise later in the game which is called Protecting My Devotion as well.

And yeah, this is my favourite FF soundtrack after FFVI, but it's a razor-thin margin separating them.

Oh engrish, I love you.

But yeah, I'm in agreement with you who, IX probably takes seconds place soundtrack after VI. VI's main theme alone gives it massive bonus points.

Oh, yeah. I hated Amarant because he didn't like... DO anything, lol. I hated Steiner too, but it was kind of that love-hate thing, you know? Otherwise, you can tell Quina is there to be really awkward, creepy, and stupid so IT didn't bother me much. I mostly ignored it. x'D

I hated Eiko my first few play throughs, but then she grew on me and I have no problems anymore.

I think IX's music beats VI's music, but just by a hair. Both soundtracks are amazing. *Q*
