Ffvi

One of my favorite debates among JRPG fans rages around which Final Fantasy was best. We can all agree on the worst ones, but somehow opinions are split about the best. Now, with HD improvements and reboots, we get to replay all our old favorites. One of which is coming to iOS and Android.

As part of the “Legacy” collection of games, every early Final Fantasy game will be brought to iOS and Android devices. Final Fantasy producer Takashi Tokita confirmed that this would include Final Fantasy VI. Like the other updates, the port will have better graphics and support touch screen controls. Tokita explains:

The battle systems have been altered for the other [mobile remakes] for Final Fantasy and VI will be the same. For instance grinding was an issue and people had to spend a lot of time leveling up. Now on the mobile devices the battle systems have been adjusted so you don’t have to fight as much and can enjoy the game for what it is.

[…]We are aware that we have tons of VII fans. We have VII fans in our own company. If this Legacy project works out well, we would like to one day be able to work with VII.

And with that, productivity will drop to an all-time low. Final Fantasy VI has to be one of the top 3 games in the franchise, if not number one. Right guys? Or are you all just FFVII fanboys?

    but can the square binit developers stop milking the nostalgia. Where are legit FF titles for the PSVITA!??!!?!?!?! Ports and ports and rehashes and mobile gob. Seriously need to stop moonshining these devils of East! The JRPG Killers! Single handedly lead an entire genre to irrelevance and complete obscurity. Is it so difficult to get the same story writer who wrote ff7 to make a new script for a new game and make a JRPG in two years without clunky bloated mechanics? Mass Effect is huge and im sure that takes way less time to produce…….im getting @#@!#!@# off right now

    Question for the fans of FF. I have played and finished every Final Fantasy since FF3. Some even multiple time like 8,9 and 10. But when FF13 came out I bought a new shiny special edition 360 just for this game. And for the life of me cant finish it (story wise).

    So I wanna know from those who have finished 13 and are True fans of the series, is it worth it to finish this? am I playing too something great at the end or does it just fizzle away and go poof?

    7 is way better than 6, i mean 7 is the best one in the series, end of story, stop the debate.
    come on, i mean the world, the characters, EVERYTHING!

    Its all you hipsters who say 6 was better before the graphics went “next gen”, you all like “oh i was a true final fantasy fan before it went 3D”, all up on your high bicycles and shit.
    And for all your arguments that Kefka is the best villain, i mean lets compare him to Sephiroth for a bit here:
    Kefka is just bat shit crazy want to see the world burn fuck everyone, which is amusing and entertaining in what it is.
    Sephiroth is a villain who is so conflicted and haunted that you find it hard to label him, he is deep with issues of his own, revenge, the truth, etc. Much of the story is him trying to figure out what he even he is, and coming to terms with it deciding what needs to be done. Its deep man, real deep.

            I found squall a boring and whiney, so yeah i never really connected with him which would be a big reason 8 is not on my top list.
            The ending of crisis core is the first game in donkeys years to have me mouth open in shock and dismay about what had just happened, i was amazed, it was so awesome to have a game do that to me again, after being so long with boring uninspired stories.

            Funnily enough it always was final fantasy games that did that to me, which is why i am so infuriated the way the franchise has gone since after 10….

        Shut your mouth! FF12 was a misunderstood gem. A bold new push into uncharted waters. It’s like how Vagrant Story was such an awesome game, but only a handful played it.

        Once you give FF12 a chance, it’ll change your life!

        Also! Gold Star for no longer being a Fishead COD player. We need more of you to fight the good fight, soldier.

          I played FF12 for many hours, I cant remember how far I got or any details, but I remember at one point thinking to myself, what in the fuck is going on with this random idiot story, and who the fuck are these people i am playing with. After all those hours i had no idea what the main plot was and i had developed no bond with the characters, then i turned off and played something else, forever. In short, it was shit.
