IN earth?????? IN.......

Hmmm, does that mean it's dead and buried? Best game of the dead and buried.....?

Really I'm just poking some fun....actually....I liked FF8, but FF7 has more replay value, to me, than FF8 does.

But I like FF8, mainly because, I can relate to Squall.....I guess you need a messed up childhood to get into the storyline of FF8.

It's the story that makes a good FF game. Not, really the battle engine . And so far I think FF7 has the best story..... So, MP > has very little to do with it.

I'll save Dag the trouble. Some of us know that the earlier Final Fantasies are where it's at.  :)

I agree with you neoblaze. Ultamecia was just not evil enough for an end of game boss. It's like Darth Maul on Star Wars he was a little girl compared with Darth Vador and just was not evil enough to be the main bady. I wish I could have played Seifer at the end of FF8 cause he realy pissed me off!  :x

No joey, you are just insane because ff8 does Not rock! If I had never played the rest I suppose it would have been good but ff8 pales in comparison. Sure  the graphics were good but graphics aren't all that make a game

...and the graphics sucked as well. I have yet to see a single FF game with good graphics.

(don't come here with FMVs...they don't make a game)

Joey: A shop in S&M near Kotaraya, KL sell one. But be prepared to pay outrageous prices. Order online, as I have always do is better.

dagsverre: FMVs make the game too if you ask me. Well, ePSXe will make FF look better than on a PS.

heheh I just had to get registered for this one.  Well Final Fantasy 8 was a great game in my opinion.  Plus it had that one thing that attracted people to it (other than it being a Final Fantasy): the FMV's of course.  I remember when I was playing Final Fantasy 7 and all my little siblings were watching me and didn't really pay much attention to it because it didn't look good and they were to young to understand the game.  But when I saw the intro to Final Fantasy 8 I just had to show and tell everyone I knew about it.   They were in awe and they watch me play the game ALMOST everytime I played it which got annoying after a while so I told them to get their own copy.  And they did.  This game was my favorite mainly because I'm a sap for love stories and great graphics and FMV's.  So what I think Finaly Fantasy 8 did was attract more people (with one of the best intro's ever made) and a new kind of Final Fantasy game.

FF8 isn't that great, I'd have to say probably because there's no "villan" 'til the very end of the game, and the magic system takes too much time (draw, draw, draw), and the Junction thing is just too @#$% complicated compared to some other stuff.

Just finished FF9 in ePSXe, it rules!  FF7, 6, 4 do too (never really liked 5 much).  1, 2, 3 on NES, I've played but I can't get myself to like them after playing the SNES or PSX ones.

ANYWAY

Look at FFX, this is dumb.  The main character bears a striking resemblance to Squall......  The main female character looks almost exactly like Rinoa...  That not enough for you?  Head to http://ps2.ign.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://ps2.ign.com/  and look for the FFX preview and you'll see someone who looks just like Selphie...

I'm sorry, but I'm one of the people who play games for the graphics. However, if the story sucks, I don't play it very much after I beat it.

To me, FF8 looked spectacular. To this day, (I haven't played FF9, so I'm not counting it. Call me a PC buff.) it is by far the best looking FF game yet.

However... The storyline was WAY too straight forwards, and you guys are right: Ultimacia didn't really feel like the bad guy. Plus their didn't seem to be much time to run around and have fun until just before the final battle with Ultimica.

IMO, FF7's story was twisted, devious, and unexpected. IE: The perfect story. LOTS of replay value, and lots of time just to enjoy the rich, wonderful world Square made for us. The story is only slightly better that 6, which is also high on my FF Fav list. (7, 6, 8. Haven't played 2, 3, 4, or 5 all the way through yet. And nobody ever counts the Gameboy FFs.)

Bottom line: FF7's story is WAY better than FF8, but FF8 dominates FF7 in graphics.

but that is because at that time it was the best way of doing things, before they found new ways to gain extra performance

The PSX one is every bit as challenging as the translated ROM, but, get the ROM, the translation is better.

Hmm... well I haven't played the PSX version much, but someone on another board (FFOnline) told me that the difficulty was the same.

Hmm I dunno.  I know they made FF4 way easier over here and FF7 too but I haven't heard much about other games.

FF7 was toned down here, but we got weapons thrown in to measure up
rememebr the clock puzzle in the temple of the ancients? that was supposed to takes HOURS to complete on the Jap version...

Also I read that at the beginning of disc 2, in the snow place, when you're climbing the mountain and have to keep pressing the button to keep youself warm... that was supposed to be REALLY tough but its cheese in the American version.

Yeah well....they need to cut that out. Just about everyone, in the gaming community, knows what FF is, now. What they should have done was add a difficulty option, instead of just cutting it up.
