The first Final Fantasy game that I played was Final Fantasy X at a friends house. I thought that is was the best game ever. Up to that point I didn't really have a favorite game series or a favorite game genre. I loved the amazing graphics and I thought the storyline was fantastic. I thought that Final Fantasy X was the only game like that. Soon afterward, I bought my own PS2 and I got Kingdom Hearts. While playing through it I learned that some of the characters were from Final Fantasy games. I then realized that X was not the only one, but actaully the tenth one(I must have originally thought that the X was an "x"). Luckly, I realized this before Gamestop and EB Games stopped selling PSOne games and I was able to go out and buy VII and IX. I played through VII first and it was incredible. Sure, the graphics aren't as good as X's, but I thought that the storyline was a lot better and I thought Cloud was the coolest person, especially with his huge Buster Sword. IX didn't impress me as much, but it still was an awesome game. Now I was hooked, I started looking for VIII in stores, since I didn't know that X-2 had been released by that time. I couldn't find VIII, but I did find X-2. After playing through it, I knew that it wasn't as good as the other Final Fantasys that I had played, but it was still an awesome game. Now I get every new one that comes out, right now I am playing through I, II and XII. Final Fantasy XIII is going to be amazing, hopefully it comes out soon. Does anyone know if the release date that Best Buy and Gamestop have for Final Fantasy XIII Versus is correct? Just edit my page to let me know.
