I agree that XIII-2 was much better than the original. I liked the ability to tame monsters and make them allies and I also liked that it wasn't as painful to level so it didn't feel like I was sitting for over an hour just to gain a single level. And X-2 was one of the first games after the merger in which many people boycotted or started a trend of speaking against playing any Square games because they weren't made by the original company. And in time more and more people started jumping on to the hate train and that's why many people just go with the popular opinion that Final Fantasy games just aren't the same/good anymore. Which I will disagree on because having played the mass majority of the games either via emulator, renting, or owning, they all have that same spark. If you know what I mean, the worst game they've came out with in my opinion was IX and that was before they merged. I've actually liked the majority of games that both Square Enix and the original Squaresoft have made.

Really any time that anyone speaks ill about something and the more negative views it gets then the more popular with people it becomes. Even if people originally liked it they will start to see imaginary flaws that they hadn't considered before someone put a preconceived notion that something isn't right about it in there.

I liked IX. o.o There was one that I didn't like at first. It had Vaan. I can't remember what one, but after it became the only game I could play (because I lost or damaged my others for not taking care of them. Oops.), I started to tolerate it more and somehow got really into it. It was fun because it used almost the same concept that FFX had, from what I remember. The thing I didn't like about it was the battle system. It was far different from the original battle system where you always entered a battle sequence. I'm glad they didn't stick with the battle system in XII in future games.

I actually really like the battle system in the game you're talking about (XII). I liked how I could actually control my own character and choose where they move, it felt kinda like Dynasty Warriors if you got into a fight with too many enemies at once. I had to change the battle setting though so that when you open a menu to choose a spell or who to attack it paused the battle because I don't have fast enough reflexes to move around and then move through a menu and make sure I'm out of the line of fire all at the same time. The only thing I didn't like was the gambits because the first time I played I just plain didn't understand them. My last time through I understood more but tended to just control each character manually instead of risking having them do something stupid that would end up in the whole team getting screwed over. And I really liked the quickenings especially when I got a really long chain up it got my heart pounding.

In comparison to the original, the monsters made better allies than the rest of the characters XD The Crystarium did remind me of the Sphere Grid in X, but not a very good adaptation if that's what they were going for \: It was pretty to look at, and that's pretty much it...Needless to say, I gave up trying to complete that game not even halfway through because I hated using Sazh and Vanille together.

IX was really nice actually! Before actually playing it, I didn't have a good impression simply because the characters weren't very human looking realistically, but it grew on me. And I agree with alvmonster in that even though I myself didn't particularly like XII from the setting to the characters, it did have a nice battle system though; the gameplay was good enough in that for me to actually finish it.

I think I just wasn't really used to it. I'm used to going into a battle sequence and stuff. Then again... the Kingdom Hearts series didn't, so I don't know why it bothered me at first. O_o I guess I'm just not big on change. I had a hard time adjusting to the new battle system, but I did eventually. *shrug*

I loved XII's battle system if only because you could set up your gambits and then just wander around with one hand on the controller and still destroy everything. It was so easy to multitask while playing that game, haha. Doesn't make for a very involved game though. :(

I think my favourite battle systems in the main FF series go XIII/XIII-2, X-2, and then XII. I really like the normal ATB as well but those three just felt a lot faster or more streamlined so I ended up preferring them. (I think my least favourite is X because turn based is really boring for me...)

My patience has deteriorated over the years so my preference for ATB bars have changed, haha. I've mentioned it before I think, but I really loved the Sphere Grid in X, and that's the main reason why I wanted to play it; got around to it for the PS2 version, but never completed it. Since I watched my sister finish the game before I did, I already know what the ending is, but it's different experiencing the game for yourself rather than through someone else. X-2 was tolerable; it wasn't bad nor good, though I really wish they carried over the Sphere Grid concept into that one \: Would have made me feel more inclined to play.

The ending of FF X actually made me so mad the first time I played it that I never actually got to the end because after beating Jecht I spent 3 hours trying to defeat the final-final-final boss and still couldn't do anything to beat it so I quit and went to grind a bunch. I think I've only got to the credits twice in that game and both times I just felt so accomplished like I never have before. I really like both ends of the spectrum because I like turn based systems like in X because I can look at the little scroll bar and see how my moves will affect the battle but I also like ATB games because it speeds up games and just feels better to play. But with the ATB system I really prefer the ones where I can control my characters movement if movement plays a role in attack range and such. Like sometimes in XIII or XIII-2 when I had someone set to Ravager, Sabateur, or Synergist they would rush right up to the enemy to use ranged or status inflicting moves which if I had control of them would be something I would make sure not to do.

I couldn't even get passed Seymour Flux. D: I hated him so much. So, I never actually got a chance to beat the game. In fact, I'm so bad that I never had a chance to finish ANY Final Fantasy game for that matter. ><

You should try playing FF I. It's probably the easiest one there is with no real possible way to add variety to your team based on how you play. You just have to level everything up to 99 which is pretty easy if you go through the dungeons. Which are pretty linear.

It'd probably bore me though. :/ I just need to level up my characters more, it seems. It shouldn't be that hard if I concentrate on it enough. I did try the expert mode on the remastered versions.

I don't know, the I and II Dawn of Souls remakes are a couple of my top games to play when I'm away from home.

Also, time for a new bi-weekly topic.

Who is your favorite boss battle and why? : Well I hold a certain bias towards FFX since it was my first and most favorite game, so I'm going to try to push away from that and choose Kefka from Final Fantasy VI. The character for one just gets me, he's just so awesome and messed up that I have to love him.
Spoiler:
And then when he finally turns on the Emperor and takes the spot that he rightfully deserves I just want to give him a big thumbs up and pat on the back. Kefka is great because he starts off as a loser henchman and becomes one of the greatest villains in video game history, inspiring young people across the globe by demonstrating to them that even the most worthless, pathetic peon can transform himself into the God of Destruction, bend the minds of weaklings to serve his mad desires, and obliterate all life on Earth. He’s completely unpredictable, he has no motive except an unquenchable thirst for power and destruction.

When it comes to favorite boss battle, mine would have to be the first boss battle against Exdeath in Final Fantasy V even though that battle is scripted. One reason why I like it is that you are using a character that can still fight at zero HP. Said character that can fight with zero HP is Galuf.

I don't think I have a favorite boss battle. o.o It's been ages since I've played other games too, so if I do have one... then I don't really remember.

I really liked the Chaos battle in the first Final Fantasy. The Dawn of Souls remake was the first FF game I actually completed, so that battle was pretty memorable.
I was so freaked out every time he cast a spell, mainly because the animations made his attacks look so overpowered.

Never had a favourite boss of any sort, even from this series, because I hate all bosses as they get in my way XD Though if I had to give an answer, I'd have to say Ultimecia from VIII because together with the story, and everything essentially revolving around her, the character she portrays was, in my opinion, good in terms of a final boss. Other than that, there's nobody else who comes to mind.

Favourite boss...? I can't really think of any boss fights I immensely enjoyed. Maybe some of the latter missions in FFXIII because they got pretty intense and were among the few times the battle system got difficult to handle.

My favourite boss character? Hmm. Probably Kefka for the reason Oaka mentioned.
Spoiler:
I only played FFVI last year and it was a breath of fresh air to have a final boss that wasn't just another "hero" who thought their misguided path was correct. He was just crazy and power-hungry and I thought that was great. It made him a lot scarier than a villain you could potentially reason with because you had no idea what he was capable of doing next.

He might mean the Warrior of Light from Dissidia. At least, that's what I think of when I hear "Warrior of Light".

Spoiler:


In other news, I bought FFX off of Amazon. The PS2 version. I'm still getting the X/X-2 HD version, but I don't have a PS3 yet, so I decided to try out the original first. I know next to nothing about the game, and I've heard very good things about it, so I figured why not?

Ah I see, I wouldn't have thought that since I haven't played Dissidia yet...which is why either this weekend or next I'm going out to get a Vita and then go on a buying spree and get all of the Final Fantasy games that are available and then have even less of a life than I do now. I've been really looking forward to being able to play the remastered version of X/X-2 so I hope you have fun too. ^.^

I did mean Dissidia Warrior of Light, sorry for not specifying. xD
I still need to go and get the X and X-2 remaster, if only for the fact that I love getting PS3 Trophies. Also, I need to try and actually complete the Final Fantasy games I own. I always end up getting distracted somehow. xD

It's alright. And I know how you feel. I still haven't beat FF III because for one leveling is so tedious and second it's handheld and for some reason I just have trouble playing handheld games. If the game is on a console then I'm fine, if it's on a laptop I'm fine, if I'm playing a DS or PSP or Ipod or anything like that, it'll take me forever to beat a game. I actually just stayed up all night last night trying to finish FF III froom a new game, I only got to level 14 in like 5 and a half hours.
