    I found Alexander to be incredibly useful once built upon. Junctioning Zombie to your character's weapon, and then summoning Alexander turned out to be a huge pay-off in the long run. Also, you can't forget about the Revive ability this GF hands over.

    I didn't tend to use Cerberus that often, only in the latter stages of the game when battling Omega and Ultima Weapon.

    And obviously, what it all comes down to in the end is that Eden is the strongest GF out there, hands down.

    Previously known as Lionheart730.

    I can't believe Phoenix hasn't been mentioned yet. That GF saved my ass A LOT during my first battle with Omega Weapon.

    Edit: Oh yeah, and can't forget Gilgamesh, when he shows up in a boss battle and uses Zantetsuken.

    Phoenix is easy to forget it's not a "normal" GF. But yeah, there were at least a couple of times that Phoenix saved my ass. Great GF.

    Well, I liked Quezacotl for giving me the Card Mod ability, if nothing else.

    Hard to say, but my favorites in descending order were probably:

    Irfrit, Shiva, Bahamut, Quetzacoatl, and Leviathan.

    Phoenix was pretty neat too. FF8 had the best variety of summons I think, even though the graphic power of FF10's look awesome. FF12 has by far the worst summons of all of the recent FF's. How they dropped the ball so badly in that respect i'll never understand.

    In my opinion, the summons aren't all that bad. It's just different is all, and suprisingly I've started taking a liking to a few of them.

    The main gripe I have about the FF12 summons is that they are fairly useless in the game. I, and probably a lot of people who played the game, summoned most of them only once, and that was simply to see the summoning CGIs. Considering that they played a decent part in the story line, that was very disappointing.

    The other problem I have with them is the model designs. The summonings are no where near as spectacular as in previous FF's and I recall most merely involving a spinning circle with the character in it and some murky looking backgrounds. Some of the limit breaks were pretty nice, but a person would never see them if they never had a reason to summon one in the first place. A few had redeeming qualities, but many of the models reminded me of a bunch of monster body parts stitched together.. I didn't find their designs to be very well thought out. When I can't tell where the head begins or ends on a summon, I feel there's a problem. Their poor implementation into the combat system is another issue (with the summoner getting stuck alone and often being swarmed by monsters.)

    I'm hoping we get more of the FF8/FF10 variety of summons when FF13 arrives..

    I agree with those comments; only a select few of the summons had an actual concept behind their designs, those select few are the ones I've taken a liking to. On the other hand, you're also right when it comes to the implementation of the summons into combat. I've found myself summoning during a critical point in a battle, only to have myself killed and wasting my entire amount of MP in the first few seconds of the fight. All in all, I find FFVIII to have the best variety of summons in any Final Fantasy game.

    I prefer Shiva because of the ice, Diablos from the power and Cerberus of the useful magic support

    I haven't thought about it before, actually.

    It's not necessarily my favorite GF, but I probably appreciate Quezacotl more so than any other GF for being both the wicked & lovably shrewd creature that it is, for making Triple Triad's importance (and borderline addictive gameplay) all possible.

    If I were completely oblivious to each GF's ability, I'd favor Carbuncle most, because I happen to like its design best.

    I need atb back! It started ff, so it should be kept as part of the tradition.

    That's what final fantasy is all about.

    Gilgamesh - I think he's Flat-out Awesome. Plus I like his Swords and their Techs.

    Shiva - For giving me the Doom Ability nothing more. I found that Doom can work Better then Death, if Death Dosen't work Cast Doom. I remember taking down 5 to 6 bosses with Doom.

    No one is going to mention the cutest of the summons? And no I don't mean that moomba. I mean Carbuncle! I used him all the time.

    I used Carbuncle fewer times than any other GF. I didn't find him to be all that useful, abilities set aside.
