    I liked VII as well, but everyone seems to slate VIII! I like IX and X as well, they all seem good! The blitzball element of Final Fantasy X has got to be the best subgame there is!

    I thought it rocked, although I am only part of the way thru it as I have to play it on my brothers PS2 as I cannot afford one of my own!::sobs::

    I hate VIII

    Compared with VII and IX, its a total POS, in my opinion.

    I think FFVIII was the best one. VII was also very good. Didn't
    play IX, but I hated X. X just sucked. There was no world map,
    no rad little vehicles... Way, way, way too linear (especially with
    that damn arrow that told you where to go).

    FF VIII is the worst game in the FF series. FF VI and FFVII tie for the best in the series. FF X was way to linear, if it were not for the graphics of the PS2 it may have been worse than FF VIII. The linear world map and the constant interuption of scenes were you just sit and watch the party converse to figure out what to do next, instead of talking to towns folk for clues, took nearly all the exploration out of the game. One of the only good things in the game was the revamped battle system.
    If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z, X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.

    I like the old SNES games best (IV - VI, especially VI) since then games were games and not 90% animated movies and minute long magic/attack sequences...

    It was considered by many to be a beginner's game and I beat the game in under 15 hours; but I did like the story. The game was basically trying to be what FFX is.

    Thumbs down

    I really don't like FFVIII. The story got way weird towards the end. I don't mean the story was too bizarre for my liking I just mean it was too disjointed for my liking. I'd give this game three thumbs down, but alas I'm limited to the two I have
