OMG, I just beat the best game of all time (in my opinion), FINAL FANTASY IX! The ending was astonishing...well, the WHOLE game was awesome!!! I recomend it to everyone. It only took me 67 hours to complete (no cheats, no strategy guide). I love that game so much, the best in the series yet. Speaking of FF, the Final Fantasy movie is coming out July 11th. It looks awesome...all CG, the best CG I have seen in a movie. Check out the trailor at http://www.finalfantasy.com . Final Fantasy X for Playstation 2 is looking awesome as well. No more pre-rendered backgrounds...all 3D environment. Check out some movies of it here: http://www.rpgamer.com/games/ff/ff10/ff10.html
Yeah, I loved VII and VIII. I haven't played IX yet. Actually, I haven't played Playstation in a while. Now that Gran Turismo 3 and Metal Gear Solid 2 are coming out on PS2 though, I think I'm gonna have to pick one up.
I hate to be conterviersal but...., are you sure it was FF9 you played? The game play was great, battle system and magic system were well put together. It had things do to and the items were as good as any FF. Things looked and it sounded pretty good but.... FF9 had the worst story of them all! I have played them all so I am not be bias. I mean come on that story was bad. The plot twists where weak and seemed slaped on. The main vilan was not much of a villan when stacked agenst others of the FF's he just kinda seemed to be there.
**If you havn't beat the game stop reading**
You said the ending was "astonishing"? The ending movie did look cool no doubt about that but...it was so sappy. (It was almost as bad as FF7's ending but thats another post)
The end boss of the game was pointless. It was weak and for the most part it was just another monster to me.
All I am saying it the story was weak but for the most part it was a great game. (but come on we know rpgs are only as good as there story.)
I'd have to agree with assaultan about the weak story. Everyday that I play (on disc three) my boyfriend asks, "so what's the story about?" Part of the reason I play rpg's is for the story and this story is indiscernible. The game play is great, the mini movies are great, but they obviously were just off when it came to the storyline.
this is a little off topic but did u guys ever hear of suddam hussein trying 2 buy ps2's? the government has said they have the most advanced imaging or something systems and can be used in attack and bombing aircraft along with guided missles. i think thats pretty funny. he tried 2 buy 2000 or something but of course they were sold out so he bought that many ps1's.
