i never liked the Final Fantasy games. taking turns hitting one person at a time got really boring :zz:. thats just my opinion. i'm not saying that they're terrible games, just not something i like. i'm more of a constant action person.
Which has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic at hand.
It's a toss-up for me between 8 and 9. 8 had a great story, and a great battle system. However, the graphics are so dated... except, I think the cut-scenes fit better. Fantastic cut-scenes, too.
9 had better in-game graphics. As great as the FMV's were, though, it was difficult at times to recognize the characters. They were nigh unrecognizable at times. Also, the character development was a little too weird for me.
I really intend to go back and play both of them (I still need to finish 8, and I want to go back and max my characters out on 9, just for kicks.) ePsxe, here I come!
...I still need to play IX, I finally found a copy of it and VIII the other day...$100 apiece.
Anyways, my opinion of the best FFs has been jumping around a bit lately, awhile ago, I prolly would've said FFVII, not quite so long ago, VIII, but, after playing FFVI again a few weeks ago, my opinion would've changed to it. Sooo, since this is a PSX FF thread, I'm voting FF Anthologies.
(Yes, I loved the class change system in V as well. xP! )
