I'm pretty sure some of you are probably expecting that someone would bring this up one day lol
Have you played a Final Fantasy game before, ever in your life? The very first Final Fantasy game was released something in the late '80s, so the series/franchise has been going on for some 30 years now. I know I haven't played all of the FF games, but I have chosen my favorite ones.
It seems that most people are into FFVII. I played FFVII, and even though I enjoyed it, it's not one of my favorites. Before FFXV (the current Final Fantasy game out right now) came to my life, I really loved FFVIII, along with FFX (the first game), FFIV, FFVI, and FFIX. FFXI and FFXIV are both online MMORPGs, but they're not for free. I heard they were fun, but I don't have the money for a subscription.
Fandom-wise, I've built so many character/game shrines to FFVIII and FFIX. In fact, I even opened my very first forum dedicated to fanfic writers of any of the Final Fantasy games (though the main focus then was FFVIII and FFIX), as well as the Chrono series (Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross). I even remember the forum script I used too: CGI/Perl-built Ikonboard. It was pretty easy to install and configure, but it wasn't as fast performance-wise as a PHP-based forum like vBulletin or phpBB (phpBB hasn't existed back in those days). Yup, I'm that old LOL.
I'm looking forward for the FFXV future DLC called "Comrades," where you can create your own character (I read that you're by default a Kingsglaive soldier like Nyx Ulric from the prequel movie "Kingsglaive"), play with your friends, and even play alongside our heroes (Noctis included haha). For season pass holders (I purchased my pass the same time as I pre-ordered my game last year), the DLC is for free. For those who aren't, it's $5 (from what I heard anyway).
So, what are your favorite Final Fantasy games (if you played any)? Share!
