phew ok

FFII's gameplay was absolute shite and the main reason I never completed it which is a pity because the story was really interesting and would have engrossed me more had I been able to play the game.

One Winged Angel, is nowhere near as good a track as people make it out to be.

While FF8's actual story wasn't the best, I think the thought and effort put into the Info section in the game is fantastic.

FFXII Revenant Wings was highly enjoyable to play but should never have been a sequel to XII it should have been a stand alone story with new characters.

Tifa should have been honest with Cloud from the start about who he was, seriously what kind of person would allow their friend to spew out stuff about themselves that they know isn't true and not go hang on something isn't right here, maybe I should ask them about it.

I never liked the Locke/Celes romance.

Ikr! Before I got into ff7 I thought they were meant to be too. But then I got into the fandom and I'm like...yeah this is not healthy, you two should just be friends.

"FFV is underrated" has become such a trope in the FF fandom. Everyone says it, yet everyone I know who has played V thinks it's great. I think it would be much more accurate to call it "overlooked", since Square don't seem to give it as much attention as they do IV and VI, and it still seems to be one of the least-played Final Fantasy games. You can't rate something you haven't played.

With that said... I'm a fan of V myself, but only for the gameplay. The characters and the story are both pretty forgettable, especially compared to VI. That might be an unpopular opinion itself in these parts.

Whats the deal with FFV anyway? I remember playing a snes rom of it way back in the 2000's , though I think it may have been a fan translation.

Was it like 3 where the real version of it took far to long to show up in the West or something?

Pretty much. The real III took even longer, though.

As much as I love their characters, I'm gettin sick AF of Balthier and Fran being the face of XII.

Also: can't stand people who worship Nomura like he's a god.

I get that he's contributed a lot to the series, and I appreciate that from him, but I'm tired of kissing his ass and I'm tired of other people kissing his ass.

Who does that? I only ever see Nomura get blamed for absolutely everything from the doom of the franchise to the SE bathroom running out of toilet paper. I don't think I've ever seen a positive atmosphere in internet comments in any article that features him.

I think KH fans are generally more positive toward him, but even if most fans of both franchises have soured on him over time, he definitely used to get a salute any time his name was mentioned -- both from fans and others at SE.

I'm convinced a lot of the problems Versus XIII's development ran into stemmed from everything he did for a long time being greeted by colleagues and superiors with a look of awe and a rubber stamp set on "auto."

I have always hated Cid from VII because of his abusive behavior towards Shera. I wish I could leave him out of the party when I play the game...
