View Full Version : The Classic Final Fantasy Games, Anyone Else A Fan

06-05-2004, 08:07 PM
Is anyone else a huge fan of classic RPG's, like FF 6 and FF 5, or FF tactics. Or the one's for gameboy, like Final Fantasy legends. Who here loves the epic tale of FF 6, the love, the sorrow, the romance. I miss the characters locke, sabin, shadow, celes, and cyan. Tell me how you feel.

Ahh, the age old argument of repeating story lines...

I don't know how many times I've said this, but there is ALWAYS some kind of connection or re-using of some general story line in all types of media...movies, videogames, tv shows, anime, etc. Does that mean that people stop watching/playing? Nope...don't see that happening anytime soon.

But anyway, back to topic...FF4 was one of the best old school one's in my opinion. Not the best graphically or gameplay wise, but it had a certain "charm" that just kinda got to me...

06-08-2004, 09:56 AM
I liked 6 & 7, and 9 was OK.

The repeating story lines are why I quit buying FFs. When they're ready to change there stupid formula, I'll be there to buy another game.

06-08-2004, 02:58 PM
6 and 1 all the way, ^^;

You called Mystic Quest a good game!


Oh, and I personally feel that the first FF straight up sucks.

tactics all the way.

tactics????? come on, hat one's doesn't even have a good storyline, you just wander around batteling here, batteling there, oh! look another clan attacks my land.

Besides the battle system sucks, its makes the battles way too long.

06-12-2004, 02:03 PM
red storm, he's talking about FF tactics, not FF tactics advanced, and yes FF tactics is a great game, here's my order

FF 6
FF Tactics
FF 10
FF 5
FF 4
FF 7
FF 8
FF 9
FF Tactics Advance

Oops, sorry. Anyway, I recently played an hour or so FF10 at a friend. It's cool, I like the blitzbal game, but because I haven't played it from the beginning and only for an hour I can't say it competes to FF6.

06-16-2004, 01:17 AM
I own FFI-FFX...
Among the classics, it's definitely Tactics for me.:^_^:

06-16-2004, 10:14 AM
FF4&FF7-BEST GAMES OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!!! :wacko:

im inpresed you can read jpn since final fantasy 3 was never released in the u.s or are you talking about the snes 3? which was ff6 and yes ff6 the grafics are jaw droping for a snes game :ph34r:

07-26-2004, 10:36 AM

Is it just me or are the classic games just booorrringg and noone wants to admit it!
Tactics is NOT a classic just because it has 2D graphics!!! It came out AFTER 7 clearly making it NOT a classic. And it was on the Playstation. All of the "Classics" were on Nintendo and Snes before being put on the Playstation. 4 is pretty good though. ;)

07-29-2004, 08:23 AM
no part of your ramblings made any sence. ok first off it dosent matter what year a game came out for it to be a classic. say a game came out in 1992 that dosent make it classic that makes it old. final fantasy tactics is a came out in 1997 or 98 i cant remember what year it is. the fact is even if its only six years old its still a classic because it has clasic game play. what make super mario clasic is the same thing that makes tactics classic. good game play thats what makes it classic not age.

07-29-2004, 09:46 PM
I don't really care :)
Oh yeah, Mario games suck
Tactics didn't have "classic gameplay"
It was pretty new not classic.
Classic gameplay means that it was used in OTHER classic games before it's time.
What's so classic about jumping?

08-01-2004, 12:12 AM
how old are you 4? if you cant see whats make mario good you dont deserve to play games. and a tactical game can have classic game play classic means even after the game is no longer cutting edge its still fun to play. even if all you do in mario is jump it does jumping right most games cant get how to jump from point A to point B with out screwing some thing up (i-ninja). you dont know what your talking about so how bout you dont?

08-01-2004, 06:21 AM
I am a big FAN or RPG's. One of my all time fav. classic square enix games was Mario RPG for the Super Nintendo. If u haven't played this RPG go out and get it, if u still have a SNES. Every real RPG fan has played this game.All time fav. classic.

08-01-2004, 10:34 AM
if you likes mario rpg you should check out paper mario that game rocks!

08-03-2004, 11:32 AM
FF6 rocks my world.

10-21-2004, 05:55 PM
the old square games are among the best.ff3(released as ff6 on playstation)ff2(ff4 on playstation) and chrono trigger

10-24-2004, 03:50 AM
hmm..ff2 on gameboy was fun though i never did find the time to defeat the last boss apollo or sumthin ....

10-27-2004, 01:14 PM
anyone one tried ff adventure or something like that title for the old gb's, if you haven't you should try it

Axel Stone
10-27-2004, 01:15 PM
Ah, FF6 was a good game.. even though the ending was a bit easy.. Very nice storyline.

-Still can't find Realm.- u_u;;

10-27-2004, 09:32 PM
Ff 5 Ff 6 Ff 7 & Ff 8 is the best

10-27-2004, 09:46 PM
I played Final Fantasy 6 a lot of times. Also had my character in FF Tactics maxed. out ~ legit in the coolest way!

I loved FF6 because of the way they designed so many side missions. Shadows was the toughest to get, because I never realized Shadow could be gone if you didn't wait for him on the floating island long enough - lol. I did luckily that one time had him on board out of sheer fun, since I was way behind and lucky made it to the ship around 10 seconds before it sank, and I noticed Shadow jump in, so I was like wicked! From then on in, I decided to wait for Shadow for the very 5 last seconds.

I only restarted the game because you had to transform one Esper to Odin I believe, and it had that spell Quick you could lose if you transformed it, so I didn't want to lose it over time. I made all my characters max. out and learn all the spells the really, really long and hard way. Thank those dinosaurs, they boosted my EXP so much lol. I needed the Speed Attribute to give to Locke, and it made my characters incredibly quick too, the legit way ^^.

I own ff2 for super,tactics advanced for gameboy,7 for ps1 and 10-2 for ps2. i can tell you alot of things about ff if youd like.

One Winged Angel Sephiroth
11-03-2004, 01:24 PM
but im not that far on tactics or 10-2 so dont expect much^^

11-03-2004, 03:41 PM
Yes, Origins was the highlight, but I was more interested in FF VI, it was the best game for the SNES other than ToP. Great games, you gotta try it.

11-03-2004, 03:44 PM
i love FF7 thats and awesome game!!:p :D

11-04-2004, 06:40 AM
looking at X-2 every other FF looks just amazing xD lmao but uh 6-8 were the three best ^_^ there awesome lol my personal fave is 8 tis just cool and i unno appealed more challengiing than the others ^_^

I also own Kingdom Hearts but thats getting off the subject so...when I first played ff3 for the super nintendo I kept getting killed by that guy up in the mountains mainly cause I didnt know back then how to switch weapons lol^^ and Ive beaten 2 for the super and found all the special items and events.

11-06-2004, 06:11 AM
Well 6 was possably one of the only title that could compete with 7, but most people only looked at the graphics, the first 2 FFs were really disappointing aswell but that was years ago and all those cliche titles were all "the rage" back then.

11-06-2004, 04:37 PM
I think they still are the rage since rockstar had been doing the same thing for the past 4 years.

11-06-2004, 05:52 PM
I think ff9 was the most fun. It was a great change from ff8, for the better.

11-07-2004, 12:43 PM
By Rockstar i assume you were refering to the GTA series am i right? And well they need to change that as the GTA series is getting to repetative and bored, it's always the same old thing 'Steal a car, kill someone, etc...blah blah blah' as for Fantasy Fighter's post, those games are far from classic FF titles so i woudn't really count them

11-09-2004, 02:48 PM
X-2 was an ok game but not as good as the originals!!

Sega saturn x
11-09-2004, 09:49 PM
If by originals you mean 1 i think your wrong they both sucked.

11-10-2004, 09:35 AM

11-10-2004, 02:12 PM

12-07-2004, 08:07 AM
i have played them all i liked the old ones better.

12-08-2004, 05:45 AM
Yes - the classics were good too. Final Fantasy VI was a nice tribute, but of course I got used to Final Fantasy Tactics and FFVII, they are still my absolute oldie favs. for the Classic Final Fantasy Games over the PS here. I still enjoy playing them - but times goes on. Final Fantasy rocks! Wo0t! They're great games you should play often from time to time! Oh yeah!

12-08-2004, 05:51 AM
i have played all the ff games u can get from ff 6 and down

I Love Elfy
12-08-2004, 06:56 AM

I Love Elfy
12-08-2004, 07:02 AM
i have every FF that has been released in the u.s.

12-08-2004, 01:24 PM
Call me old school but it really bothers me when people call FF3 FF6. When FF Anthologies was released there was a deluge of woot FF6 rocks! And of course I would say, bah humbug! we classic types played 3, none of this 6 jargin...where was I?
Anyhoo off that tangent I love em all
3 is the best, 8 or X the worst (X had a great story, I just didn't like the sphere grid, personal thing). 9 was lukewarm, but that didn't stop me from spending 2 days without sleep playing it :p

12-12-2004, 03:15 PM
im a big fan of the old ff series i loved 65 and im hopin to get ff12,2 for gba i hink those games are awesome

i personaly liked ff8 it wasnt the same as the others and that makes it special at least to me its not a bad game its the first diffrent games if u dont count 9and up

I Love Elfy
12-13-2004, 08:10 AM
