About Me[edit | edit source]

Hi! My username is GoldenChocobo. I'm not a native speaker of English. If I make grammar errors, please correct me (in this way I can learn something from my errors). I'm playing the Final Fantasy series since 2000, and the first Final Fantasy game I played was FFVII. In the next section I want to explain what I like (and what I don't like) in the Final Fantasy games I played. I marked the things I like with a Y, and what I don’t like with a N.

Final Fantasy Opinions[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy[edit | edit source]

  • Y The first chapter of the greatest saga.
  • Y Interesting dungeons (Sunken Shrine, Mirage Tower, Flying Fortress) and nice bosses (The Four Fiends and Chaos).
  • N Lacks of an interesting story.
  • N I really HATE the GBA bonus dungeons. If you want a specific rare item you need too much tries.

Final Fantasy II[edit | edit source]

  • Y Most of the characters have a name and a (simple) storyline.
  • Y The plot is nice, but makes no sense in some specific points.
  • N Horrible leveling system.
  • N Firion, Maria and Gui need more lines.

Final Fantasy III[edit | edit source]

  • Y The job system is good, but 99 levels for every job is a terrible thing.
  • N There aren’t a plot and developed characters.
  • N Endless dungeons need a savepoint.

Final Fantasy IV[edit | edit source]

  • Y The plot is good. Almost all the characters are well characterized.
  • Y The gameplay is enjoyable.
  • N Too many characters try to die. And almost all of them failed.
  • N Golbez is a better villain than Zeromus. And Zeromus existence in this game makes no sense.

Final Fantasy V[edit | edit source]

  • Y Good (and funny) plot. Maybe sometimes too much messed up.
  • Y The best job system.
  • Y The villain is a tree. Nice idea.
  • Y Superbosses. Omega and Shinryu are really hard to defeat.
  • N Faris and Krile need more lines.

Final Fantasy VI[edit | edit source]

  • Y Really interesting plot. And good gameplay.
  • Y Tactically a great number of characters with different abilities is good.
  • Y A lot of well characterized heroes (Terra, Sabin, Edgar, Locke, Celes) and a great villain (Kefka).
  • N A lot of the characters aren’t developed enough (Relm, Strago, Mog, Umaro, Gogo).

Final Fantasy VII[edit | edit source]

  • Y The best plot of the entire series.
  • Y Great cast. Almost all the characters are well developed.
  • Y Great gameplay (Materia and Limit breaks).
  • Y I really like the setting.
  • Y Has got the best minigames (Chocobo races, Snowboard, …).
  • N The characters’ graphics is horrible.

Final Fantasy VIII[edit | edit source]

  • Y The Junction system is interesting.
  • Y Triple Triad.
  • Y Squall and Rinoa are well developed, and they share a good love story.
  • Y The plot is really good until the end of Disc 1. Then is really messed up.
  • N The orphanage memories are the worst things in the history of Final Fantasy.
  • N Zell, Quistis, Selphie and Irvine are somehow unnecessary in the post-Disc 1 plot. They do only few things, and the cutscenes involving them aren’t enough. They need more lines. Ultimecia is really a bad villain.

Final Fantasy IX[edit | edit source]

  • Y Really a great plot.
  • Y Maybe the best cast (I like characters with exclusive abilities). Kuja is a great villain.
  • Y Great gameplay. Learning abilities from the equipment is a good idea.
  • Y The graphics style is interesting.
  • N Three of the continents are somehow a wasteland (there are only a couple of cities).
  • N Excalibur II is a bad idea.

Final Fantasy X[edit | edit source]

  • Y The story is really good, and the characters are well characterized.
  • Y The turn-based battle system is enjoyable.
  • Y I personally like blitzball. I don’t know why.
  • N Yu Yevon as a final boss is not a bad idea. But its design is horrible.
  • N Sometimes the minigames made me angry (butterfly hunt).

Final Fantasy XII[edit | edit source]

  • Y Probably the best gameplay.
  • Y Great sidequests.
  • Y Balthier and Ashe are well characterized. Bash and Fran are a waste of potential (the game needs more cutscenes involving them).
  • N Vaan and Penelo have not a good reason to be in the game. And I can’t believe they are as strong as the other characters (Bash is a soldier, but is as strong as a shopkeeper!). They also lack of backstory and characterization.
  • N The plot is really good until the Tomb of Raithwall. Then is really messed up (too many swords and stones). The villain is always absent, and the game doesn’t let you know anything about him.

Final Fantasy XIII[edit | edit source]

  • Y The cast is good. The plot isn’t bad (but maybe is too much simple).
  • Y The battle system is somehow nice. But auto-battle is a bad idea (I want gambits back).
  • N There are too many places where you can’t return.
  • N No minigames and no sidequests (the hunt is almost like common battles).

Final Fantasy XV[edit | edit source]

  • Y Good graphics, nothing else.
  • N The battle system is horrible (you just need to smash buttons and periodically use heal items). The "Danger" status is the worst idea ever (the IA of the allies is terrible).
  • N Disposable magic is a bad idea, and they also hurt allies...
  • N The characters are easily forgotten. Many of them don't even interact with the plot. You can reproduce the same plot with only Noctis and Ardyn (which also need a deepened characterization).
  • N The plot is ridiculous, it can be summarized in "the enemy helps you to become stronger, and then dies". The motivations of Ardyn (and thus the whole plot) are somehow contradictory. Repetitive side quests.
